    3. speaking of your email, set up an @woodlandatv.com email address. Gives you a more professional look.

    I definitely agree with this statement; when you have your own domain, using a yahoo (or any other web based) address just sends the wrong message to your customers.

    The text on your homepage that states, "Welcome to Woodland ATV..." is a little large and looks awkward to me (IMHO).

    It appears you have tweaked your site since the first post. All in all, you're off to a great start!

    If I may ask, how are you modifying your page(s)? Through the 3dcart admin panel or something like Adobe Dreamweaver?

    Congrats on the new site! I know (as we all do here) how much time these things take and will continue to take.

    My only suggestions are for your "About Us" page.

    1. A short write-up, even just 3 or 4 sentences about your love of ATV-ing (sp?) would be really beneficial. People like to know you actually know something about what you're selling. Puts a face behind the business which is still very important to people today, even for online shopping.

    2. link your email address so people can click on it and their email client pops up, makes it much easier.

    3. speaking of your email, set up an @woodlandatv.com email address. Gives you a more professional look.

    Good luck!

    Oh and remove the Powered by 3dcart blurb at the bottom of the frame page.

    Looks like a good start. I would recommend definitely getting a logo made, in today's times branding is extremely important as everyone has a web site presence. That would be the main thing I see in your site that would need to be addressed now. Otherwise it will be just constant tweeking and updating. Good luck!

    Remove the text that says that the site is under construction. Google hates that.

    Yes the header should be only about 100-150px high other than that great start.

    Hey. Welcome to 3dCart!

    My first impressions of the site would be this:

    Switch over to a fixed-width design. Currently, everything stretches too far across the screen.

    Your logo field has wayyy too much height. The navigation bar doesn't start until half way down the page. Try and draw that information up as tight to the top as possible. This way, more information about what you are selling will be present before the fold when someone visits your site.

    Remove any categories that have ZERO products. People may click around and see empty categories. They are guaranteed to leave. I learned this the hard way. Create your categories as you add products to them. Your site will be building up as you go, instead of trying to "fill it in".

    Wipe out the 3dCart Category Index and build a Site Map on your own. This way, you can control the layout and make it look nice and pretty. It is more work, but it will allow your Site Map to be "usable" to your visitors.

    Hope this helps. Best of luck!

    Hello everyone, new member here. I am a big ATV enthusiast and decided to start a business selling ATV parts online. After going though two web designers who werent getting anything done, I found 3 D Cart in Google search and was impressed with what I could do with my very limited computer skills, so I signed up. This is what I have done so far... https://www.woodlandatv.com/ Any feedback, especially negative would be appreciated. Thanks, Mike :)
Working...
