    Mr.Wookie!

    Mr.Wookie we have been through this before lol. Do a redesign change it makes a big differents trust me. I don't care what everyone else saysing it's no big need to do it. That's what make you look different from the rest. You don't want me to have to go through the birds & the bee's like I did in the last answer. If you were you site and your customers were your date do I.:) but yes I'm telling you market you website do some mailers you u need help doing that I can give you my verizon rep name & number and she will help you get someone in your area and it may only cost you $85/m for 2,000 mailers to be sent out or maybe even less:cool:

    Did you have your old web link forward to your new one?

    I changed my web address a couple of years ago. When I opened my business www.cobwebcorner.com wasn't available so I had to buy www.cobweb-corner.com

    Then a couple of years later the name I wanted became available. So I purchased that and changed my main website to that site and bought 5 years of URL forwarding for my old site. So if you type in www.cobweb-corner.com you actually go to www.cobwebcorner.com

    Just a suggestion to help your old customers find you.

    I think it's just too many links to Trust Guard. I would use only one.

    You can hide your left banner when people go to checkout, that'll eliminate the nonsecure warning I got

    You can change the way your listing pages or category pages look, I mean the style

    Use Web CEO and take the free training course, that should help with your rankings in the search engines, I've had great success using the free version

    Compare yourself to big box stores, and pick up on some of the stuff they do as far as design goes

    Don't go back to Prostores =)
    No, Not ever again will I do PS. They are the pits! I just d/l Web CEO this evening and I'll do your suggestions too.

    Can you elaborate on which links? Thanks in advance; & all advice, suggestions, and ideas are very much appreciated.

    good luck!

    I might, but I'm going to call around tomorrow-(Tuesday). I don't have Photoshop or any other creator and you're right. The current is plain & boring. Thanks for the offer.

    ah yes... this is a good one. The big boys spend lots and lots of money on usability testing. No need to reinvent the wheel.

    • Get a decent logo (and make the logo link to home - industry standard practice)
    • stop changing your fonts for links on hover (very annoying when they jump around)
    • redesign your home page
    • fix broken images
    • definitely fix your IE security warnings


    As far as a logo goes, you can pay hundreds of dollars to some firm or designer or you can use something like logoyes.com and create your own quickly for 70 bucks. As long as you have some sort of typographical treatment and perhaps some graphic or icon, then that sets you up really well for looking legit and professional.

    Here's just a quickie I did up in photoshop... icon (has shield=defense and security, + = plus) and a bit of typographical treatment and there you go:

    WOW! You did a great job! And thanks for the input! I will get on it this week for sure! I've been thinking the logo needs changed. I've been spying on the competition.

    We took the first two years as loss on tax returns before we started recording an income.

    I have a couple of pictures on the home page that do that (security issues). I don't know how to fix them other than to remove them. I know it takes a while it make $$ on the web; it just gets depressing when I see the monthly money go out and not come in. :(

    I was makeing money before I moved to 3d, but the last hosting company had a lot of issues. Not PCI Compliant, uptime, and other problems. I moved here with same company name but different web address so I know it takes work to get page rank and just get known at new address.
