My Amatuerish Looking Site Sux.

by Phil Jacobson 6 replies

My first real attempt at doing business online is a site made from Derek Gehl's BeBiz program.

Despite spending hours on it, it's still a mess!

I'd be interested in even paying someone to get it done properly so I can move on to driving traffic to the site.

Right now, I don't think it would convert too well.

I'm really interested in ezines and article advertising as a main means of marketing products/e-books/programs etc so I am studying as much as I can about the subject.

I'm finding Charlie Page's Ezine Advertising Live a great resource so far.

    pjj, put this on your site, I am selling a brand new BMW for $1,000, I just don't need it any more. I bet your site would convert if you did that. Of course I am kidding, but what I am saying is if you have a good product that people really need or want and give them a good price your page will make sales. Just study up on getting traffic like you are doing now and take your time with the site, just do a little here and there and by the time you start driving a lot of traffic to your site your site will look much better, if you just improve it a little at a time, and you won't feel as frustrated.

    Good luck

    Hey, Phil -

    I would never say your site sucks...

    But IMO it needs a lot of work and is not ready for prime time yet. And it looks to me at quick glance and scan like all you're doing is promoing a fellow I know named C.Page...

    If you're interested in some help PM me and we'll see if anything comes of it.

    Keep on keepin' on -

      All that thing really needs is a decent template (my eyes threw up looking at the color scheme lol), and some minor reformatting. I could probably get that done for you in a couple of days if you wish. Sent you a PM with an offer. Let me know what you think.

        There are a lot of people in here that do great work - and for a great price. Just search around a little, you'll find them. If they don't find you first.

          I'm beginning to like this stuff. You guys aren't as scary as you look. (just joking)

          I was a little concerned about the fact that my site is promoting another person's product and whether this is a NG or not.

          I hope that people can understand that I am new to this and as soon as I have the know-how and ability I will get my own original site up and my own original product. This is my first serious attempt at IM and I've already spent hundreds of dollars (which is a lot for me right now) on this.

          Thanks for the straight up advice.

          Any ideas on a product or service I could make from my growing knowledge of ezines? (this is in a few months at least)

            Well, I'll just throw ideas around?

            First of all you would do good to look at the sales pages of "successful" marketers and see what they are doing?

            I would have the "sidebar" on the right? Because....I don't know I think it just feels better that way.

            Green is good like it means money right? But it seems you are overusing it.
