I spoke with Podia today and it looks like we have come up with a solution that will work! So below you will find my proposal for what it would cost to build a Ready 4 Work and Cardinal’s Nest Squarespace site.
The proposal below is valid for 5 business days. When you’re ready, please hit the button below to respond to your proposal. Have a great day!
READY FOR WORK SITE $3000
The Squarespace site would be easy to manage and would mostly serve as a place to send people who are interested in purchasing a license to the Ready 4 Work curriculum. You would sell a license agreement to a school system. The school would pay you for a certain number of users and you would create a Podia account specifically for that school. You would be able to put their branding on their “student portal” and administrators would be able to login and see data for their own school. Podia is adding a quiz feature to the platform in February so quizzes could also be a selling point. If you have multiple accounts with Podia they are also willing to give you 20% off your accounts so the annual cost to you per school is around $650. To onboard a school they would just need to provide you with a spreadsheet with names and email addresses and Podia will create individual accounts for each student.
So on my end, when you hit the “sign in button” on your Ready 4 Work site, students would hit the button for their school and be bounced to their school landing page. Either that or that can bookmark their schools landing page. Another option is to pay for domains like lcs.ready4work.com that would redirect to your Podia pages.
THE LONG AND SHORT OF IT IS:
You could make a Cardinal’s Nest or Ready4Work email address and I can on-board the schools for $500 and you can just charge that fee to the school. So all you’d need to do is get them to sign the license agreement. Just an idea :)
Cardinal’s Nest $1000
I can definitely rebuild your Wix site on Squarespace for $1000 and that would be ready by the time the Ready 4 Work site was ready to launch. We would need to have another meeting to discuss how that site would function but I have no problem working on both sites at the same time.
Suggested Payment Schedule
$1000 - January 31st - Which you’ve already paid
$1000 - February 28th
$2000 - Due to Release the Websites in March
