One More Night-
OK I had to stay up one more night and do some final polishing on the site. There are still a couple of things I need to take care of but they can wait. I am very comfortable that the site is ready for public consumption.
There is supposed to be a press release and I had to get this done. Friday the paper here in my Ohio hometown is doing an article, I am still quite attached to my roots here. Besides the press release, I am trying to get an article in the Billings, MT paper in my REAL hometown.
Thanks to You LJ’s-
Thanks to your input on my site I was able to hone it to perfection. You have been witness to a big part of my business and actually a big part of it yourselves. Thanks again.
I got some feedback that the gallery was small. I did only put in the pictures that were of higher quality but some did not realize that you could click on the images for more photos. I knew that the links were there but of course – I made the site. I added a “click on” statement.
Instead of having a contact page that a visitor would have to go to in order to reach me, I put contact buttons on all of the pages except for the gallery slide show pages.
I am trying to attract a higher end client with the site and I was afraid to make it feel like a woodworker how-to site. This is important business to pick up on – identify your market and target it.
I could not resist sticking a treasure in the “woodworkers welcome” page for you guys.
In case you don’t know, click on the shop photo and you will be linked to a page not listed in the menu. It is a good collection of photos in the shop and a little of my philosophy of functioning therein.
I know how you guys are, always looking on the background trying to glean whatever information that you can from other shops. I still do it too. I am not stingy with the information and it is there for your information and idea developement.
Thanks Again- I’m hittin’ the hay.
