Forum Academy Marketplace Showcase Pricing Features

Freelancer for a popular hobby project (Minnnis.com)

About a year ago, I started building www.minnnis.com - a place for professional commission miniature painters to showcase their portfolios. I did most of the work myself, but got help from a couple of well respected community experts with some bits I struggled with.

It’s a hobby project - but not on the Hobby pricing level! I pay $29/mo to run this, but there is no business model behind it. I just do it for the love of it.

Sadly, I don’t have time these days to work on the project, although I would love to see it continue to improve and grow. Therefore, I am looking for some freelance help to work on the platform. That means it is paid work - but I can’t exactly pay top dollar.

There are some main improvements I would like to make:

  1. The most important is to improve the responsive design. I built Minnnis from a template, and in making it work I have rather butchered the mobile version. UX is decent on a desktop, but rubbish on mobile. Currently, the site gets a Google optimisation score of about 1/100. That means it does terribly in search engine rankings, even though it is rich with fresh content, so should do well.
  2. Any other SEO improvements
  3. Improving image browsing. I guess that is part of 1.) but really I would prefer if one could swipe to view the pictures.
  4. Fix FB login. Yeah, I didn’t have a real privacy page, so FB disabled FB login. I will need to provide the T&Cs, but FB login needs to be fixed.
  5. Push images to Facebook. I can’t remember where I saw it, but I am pretty sure there is now a plugin to push images to a gallery from a Bubble app. Would be neat to have that.
  6. Integration with Mailchimp or similar. If I ever do a mailing to the users, I kinda paste all the email addresses into a bcc field of an email, which is clearly terrible.
  7. Pull images from Instagram. Probably not possible, but it would be ideal if someone could create an album on Minnnis direct from Instagram.
  8. Maybe further develop a couple of beta features I started but never finished.

I originally thought I would like some small level work - like a few hours a month. The problem with that is, to get a second person to work on Minnnis I will need to upgrade to Professional plan, so we can have 2 Dev versions, plus two editors working on the one project. So maybe we try to do everything in one month? To be discussed.

Although this is just a hobby project, I would like to work with someone I can trust will do good work and take it seriously, but work efficiently. Ideally, you can show me some similar projects, especially with a view to the responsive design. Maybe let me know what you would do if you had carte blanche to do whatever you want with Minnnis.
