Site redesign

I have been using WordPress for years and would like to hire an expert to improve the look, feel and functionality of my website, billwittur.com.

At the core, I’d like to have a site that lets me develop my earned media (subscribers, customers, direct buyers). I want to monetize the work that I do, which is creative writing. I have several books out and would like to get users to subscribe to my site and/or a paywall service that would let them download my audio book and other materials from my site.

Here’s a quick list of essentials, but I would like any proposals to include and/or add feature recommendations that will help me improve my relationship with customers and fans.

* A basic, easy to browse, multi-page site (similar to what I have now)
* About, Contact/Subscribe, Portfolio (books, writing, music), Blog (with ability to see archived posts / calendar)
* Buy now – links to Amazon pages / other epub links
* A nice basic theme
* Newsletter: a ribbon that remains static at the bottom of the page (I’ll add a hint of enticement, like ‘win a signed copy of my book’). The newsletter is something I’ve never been good at creating / maintaining and would like it tied to content I create on my site (RSS?) so that updates go out automatically or based on scheduled sends
* Social stuff: connection to Twitter/X; Facebook; Instagram; Spotify (and other stuff as I add third-party sites)
* Integration of a paywall for audio book downloads
* Integration of Patreon / donation links
* Store: let people buy shirts or other items from a store that I operate (although fulfillment would have to be with another third-party resource)
* Calendar – letting people book my time for podcasts, book events and interviews
* Events – speaking, guest, etc
* Analytics integration – is the site selling my book?

Here are a few examples of sites that I like:

I am capable of adding text and/or images to the site so long as I know where to put them and what the tech specs are. Same goes for any media or content related to the paywall products.

I will only respond to proposals that offer detailed budgets and timing and are void of spelling/grammatical errors.

Thanks!
