My own theme - opinions please
Share on: 
fb share twitter share gplus share more share

for the last few days, I have been putting together a new PIPS site.....but with a difference it is a review site

It is a wordpress site and I designed the theme myself using Artisteer....it is by no means complete but is now at a stage where I feel comfortable letting the world know about it.

Any and all feedback would be greatly appreciated.

  1. the theme
  2. the site
  3. the content
I am trying to setup a new pop up with video......but having probs at moment.

Hi, Graham:

Awesome! I am completely impressed! (As I often am with your work.)

The header graphic (the Highlands) is very good and I really like the colour scheme and the page layout. Clean and professional.

I like the three columns with the text down the middle, the check list, and the links to the various pages listed below.

Well done. An example for all of us.

Hi Graham

Wow that is impressive - you have really developed the art of building sites.

You've done a great job and included really good and relevant information. I like the way you have laid out the core programs and costs etc. I think you will do really well with the site.

Thanks also for including a section on the PPG.

Cheers for now
Cyn

Hi Graham,

For a site that you say is still a work in progress I think you have done a great job. The theme I like a lot, the colours are sharp amd easy on the eye. The site layout is good and easy to navigate.

The content if fine because it is a PIPS review site and you seem to cover all the bases with content and links to other sites. I can't honestly give any criticism, constructive or otherwise especially as you are still working on it.

keep up the great work,

regards,

Mal.

Thanks guys for your awesome feedback, I really appreciate it.

Cyn thank you and i sincerely hope you are right.

I have been neglecting PIPS a bit and have decided to put my focus back into it....with 5 different websites to maintain, focus seems to be a bit of an issue lol, but I am definitel getting there, thanks largely to you guys at PPG & NPG

I like it! It seems like a lot of PIPS members move away from promoting the program itself, nice to see a new site devoted to it. I think this is a very informative site for those interested in PIPS.

Thanks Aaron,

That's exactly how I see it, I lost my focus a bit with other projects and now want to re focus on PIPS.

Thanks everyone for your comments.

Impressive Graham, the only thing I noticed was here PIPS Core Affiliate Programs | Quick Start To Internet Marketing everything in the reviews was scewed to the left and made it distracting and difficult to read.

Otherwise. WOW!

Google has been persecuting affiliate marketers for a long time.

While I respect Perry Marshall I will also never forget being on one of his conference calls where he repeated several times that 'newbies are just like rats'...

I guess he is a snob, and this latest article, aside from the facts about Google, does make him sound like an elitist.

...oh but how cool - he likes vagabonds, misfits, and geeks. wow, i am sure glad i am at least one of those, so i guess that means i deserve to be here on the net.

... the good news is it is still content content content and you can get away with rat behavior anyway...

Thanks for your kind words Jeff,

The google slap ahhhhh I think I have suffered this on my 2nd income blog. I have no pr at all now

With my new review site, I am doing things differently, in as much as it is limited to the core programs and I am inviting comments (good or bad) from anyone who has experience with any of the core programs. This is to help anyone considering joining.

I guess time will tell.

Mark,

Thanks ever so much for your feedback and especially pointing out the skewed page.

I wasn't aware of this, as it appears okay in firefox.
I checked in internet explorer and can now see what you mean...thanks again

Hi Graham,
Your site looks great. I too started out with PIPS and have since been working on other projects, but what you've done is the way to go if you're going to make it with this program.

Hats off to ya,
