If an Alta Vista resident has more than one business, the resident can submit an entry for each company. 

The Prize: The giveaway prize, valued at USD 1,500.00, is based on all the services that the Sponsor will provide: initial business digital marketing and website consultation, WordPress Website development, hosting service, free domain name, weekly backups, tech support, WordPress website update/management training, among others. 

The Alta Vista Website Giveaway consists of a free WordPress website with five pages only, optimized for mobile devices. The Sponsor will choose the website design or template based on the Winner’s current business identity logo, image, and colors. The Winner will get up to three website template design concepts for a final selection. The prize website will include:

  • A home page.
  • Services page.
  • Portfolio page.
  • Product samples page.
  • A contact page with a contact form.

We may switch some of the pages above to other types of styles to suit the Winner’s business needs (Mission, About, Testimonials, among others), as long as these do not require complex web coding developments or database-driven options. 

The website will include a business map, and we will have some features like photos, photo galleries, video integration. The Winner must provide its pictures and video elements or the Sponsor can help supply these for free or for an additional charge depending on the type of elements wanted. (Exclusive, custom, vs. stock). If the Winner wants other pages, we can add them to the project for an additional charge.

Website assets format: The Winner’s graphic, audio, or video assets must be optimized for web use. Files must be adequate for faster loading, compressed, resized, and converted to specific file types (JPG, GIFF, PNG, WAV, MP3, MP4, among others). The Prize includes two (2) hours of graphic design to work on the submitted files (or up to 30 photos to be edited). The Sponsor’s photo editing service only includes file conversion/optimization. Custom graphic design services requested by the Winner are not included. 

If more hours are required based on the number of files submitted (if more than 30 photos), or if the Winner requests custom graphics, the Winner may incur additional graphic design charges. Requests for audio recording/editing, video recording/editing services are not included. These will also be quoted separately. 

*This WordPress website will not include eCommerce. If the Winner wants to develop an eCommerce website to sell products online, with a shopping cart, payment systems, shipping options, that will be considered a project extension it will require additional charges.  

Hosting Service: The Hosting service will be provided free of charge by the Sponsor during the first year. The company chosen will be InterServer. The website will run on a Virtual Private Server (VPS) for better performance. The Sponsor will manage the server during the first year. The Winner will also have the option to choose his servers and manage them if wanted. This server must be compatible and optimized for WordPress websites. 

WordPress and the server require routine maintenance and updates to the WordPress core files or plugins. During the first year, the Sponsor will offer these services. The year will start counting once the website is finalized and launched officially. Any hosting services or website management after that first year can be renegotiated with the Winner. The Sponsor can continue providing services, or the Winner can switch the services to any other company of their liking, both hosting and management. 

Domain name: The free domain name will be purchased through GoDaddy domain name registrar for one year. The domain information will be public. If the Winner wants a private domain service added or domain protection, these will incur additional charges. The domain renewal will be the responsibility of the Winner. The Winner can also provide an existing domain to use or buy and manage his domain name if this is better suited for the owner.
