To receive a bid on your software development project, please follow this checklist:

1. Email Teresa specs for your project: t f o x w o r t h y  at  h o t m a i l dot com
a. Storyboards/wireframes, preferably in MS PowerPoint
b. Brief project description with lists of desired features, hardware       requirements, flow charts, & desired operating systems
c. Approximate budget – low to high range is ideal. Our rate is: $50-90/ hour

e. Indicate desired start date & completion time [days, weeks, months], and
f. Whether or not a NDA is required.
g. Be sure to include your full name, postal address, email address, area code & phone number, company name & title, if applicable, so that we may prepare a
development agreement for you to sign once we’ve established working terms.

2. Respond to MOBILE APP ENGINEERS.com estimate

3. Send Teresa a formal or informal authorization for work & half projected fees up front, via http://PayPal.com, using “Personal” category “Payment Owed” to avoid paying additional fees for the transaction; or a cashier’s check to the postal address given, once Teresa receives work order.

4. Suggest any changes to our initial proposal compiled from your specs.

5. Sign off on final proposal so project may commence.

6. Be available via email & Skype [ http://Skype.com ], if at all possible, for project correspondence in real time.

7. Prepare for updates.

8. Remember that additional features which you request after project has begun may incur additional costs.

PLEASE NOTE:  Keep this list handy for future reference during development project.

INSTRUCTIONS for SEO CLIENTS

Now, here’s what we would need from you to give a proper SEO estimate:

1. Specify if you already have a url which will be addressed or if you would like to have a website done as well, then follow BOTH set of instructions.
2. State if you have an e-Store or what products & services you are promoting.
3. Next, let us know if you would like us to do your keyword research or if you have selected your keywords already. We may need to review your keywords in either case, but it’s good to know your preferences.
