My new website
show user profile  Davious
New site has just launched.

Did i myself, I know it's WIX, I know the address sux, this will change when I get some cash together for the premium subscription. That lets you get rid of the WIX ad's and have a shopping cart.

Please give me any constructive crits on the layout and design.
It's already out of date as I have now 2 new masks to add.

anyhow

go see it

Hey Dave :D

well the first thing I noticed is that's an awful address with all those www's and xxx's cant imaging having to tell people what your site is if you don't have a card or something. I realise you cant change the start as its hosted by wix but can the last part be simplified?

And inside the site the image viewer is irritatingly slow, I want to see the picture I click on within a second, and all that zooming in and out before it loads is just slowing it down.
Also I want a 'next' button on the loaded photo, not have to close the image then wait for another animation for the next image.
Same goes for the page that shows one type of mask, I think I'd like a 'next' button to show the next type of mask.

Their seems to be a lot of wasted space on the pages where larger images could be used. Not sure if wix allow for that customisation.

The products on the site are really great and the photos are nice, just need some tweaking on their presentation imo.



[edit] oh and giving us clickable links on here make jesus happy ;)
[edit2] just seen on faecesbook you're going to change the address ;)

Thanks for the feedback Mike, the address will change, this is just making me DO STUFF, which I am really bad at doing. Putting the site live was a tough step, I have been looking at it for a while. I'm glad I did something!

I'll take on board what you said about the photos, and see if there are different ways to get the pics in there faster. I have a slow net connection here and it takes about 3 secs to load a pic.

thanks

ok soontekk I'll look at wordpress and see if I can cope :)

thanks

soontekk is right, wordpress seems a better ideea. even though i like flash better, i m not sure your current website does justice to it, since flash is intended to be rich and FAST media format.

anyway, your products are great, u need a great website too, or at least a really clean one.. this way your items will be presented much better. atm i dont like the purpule text on the purpule bg or blue? :)

Get your host/domain at www.one.com . Cheap and a great company.
Get wordpress.
Install (upload, follow steps, have a basic blog ready in 2 mins).

Use blog feature as "news" in order to make customers return. Or use a static page aswelcome.

Download plugins you like, install them.

Download a template, build your own template or create it using artisteer. Great little piece of software to customize your layout/style without any knowledge of html.

Enjoy!

Seems difficult but it really isn't.
Once you have gone through the simple setup its done.
I use one.com as well, €2 a month for 3gb space with all features you want.
Once you get the hang of wordpress you'll be hooked like me :)

I totally abandoned flash because it is not supported on ipad, currently my main surfing tool

I used 123-reg for my domain and they are so cheap. £10 or something for 2 years.
