  • Finally got my website in a state I'm willing to share

    Haven't got all my stock on it as haven't got decent pics of everything yet and still need to add the rest of my rings, but interested to hear what you think and how I can improve it (though it's template based and I'm quite new to all this webpage stuff).

    Thanks for looking!

    very good! Very professional, pages display very quickly and I was very intrigued by the breastfeeding bracelet! Never come across those before and I have a close friend who is now pregnant so I may be coming back to you after christmas....!!

    I think you should be very proud of your site, and hopefully it will bring in lots of orders for you!

    Cheers

      Hi Judith, thanks for the lovely comments, I'm chuffed to bits. I've some new breastfeeding bracelets that I haven't photographed yet, so will try and get them on so you can see.

            I do like your site, but would make one comment if thats ok, I think you should add some sales text to the homepage as I believe google and vistors like and expect this, but overall very good.

            Also I would consider mergine the "contact" and "how to contact me" pages and naming it "Contact Us" but that is just my personal opinion.

                Looking really good!
                I opened the terms and conditions page expecting it to be to do with returns and repairs etc and was overwhelmed with very formal legal stuff. I wonder if it's under the correct heading? The returns info etc I was expecting to find is under customer info. Perhaps the two need to be under the same heading, with the everyday bit at the start and the very heavy going bit at the end as small print? If not then I do suggest you swap the order that they appear in the list so that the customer info comes before T&C's and privacy policy, as personally as a potential customer it would be more important to me.
                Only a tiny thing though really.

                  Hi Nicola,

                  Thats a very professional looking site you have done there, you should be very proud !

                  I agree with the 'terms and conditions' page, this should in fact be 'terms of use' as it discribes the users use of your website, not sales stuff etc.

                  Yes, and also more text on the home pages. Especially associated with the breastfeeding bracelets...possibly making that your market niche.

                  You have a PHD in chemical engineering...WOW ..you should be having a go at resin jewellery then ?!?

                  Great site...its also good finding out more about a fellow craft forum member.

                    Well done - it's a lovely site, very professional-looking (and most customers wouldn't have a clue whether a site was done from a template or not!) and you have some lovely stuff on there!

                    As someone else mentioned, text on the home page gets picked up by Google, so it might be wise to put something on there with quite a few of your key words woven in.

                    Good luck with it

                      It's looking great I just wonder is there any way you can make the pictures bigger on your first view of an item cos I know how lovely they are and the small view doesnt do them enough justice x

                        Lovely site, Nicola!

                        I agree with the previous comments regarding combining some of the information and also increasing the size of the initial photo of each piece on the shop pages if possible as some of the beautiful details is lost and when there are lots more items listed, you will be relying upon visitors clicking on a lot of photos to see what they want.

                        Personally, the only other thing I would like as a buyer is a better idea of the actual delivery cost so that I can calculate the total amount payable this could be via weight of each piece shown with the price and an accompanying table showing current delivery costs by weight in the delivery information section. This means you only need to update one table when postal charges change.

                        I love the layout and colours on your site and the pages load very quickly - well done!!

                          Thank you all so much for all your comments and suggestions, I agree with text on the home page and have been trying to sort that out, but haven't managed to work it out yet which is a bit annoying, will have to have a play about with it next week and see if I can work it out. On the template there's space for "description" which I've put text in but it's not showing on the page, then there's 4 "long description" boxes which I have put the images and cateories in with links and selected a layout so that these are tiled, just wish the description appeared in one column above these.

                          The template automatically sizes the pictures, but I'll try loading some with that option unchecked and see what happens.

                          Good point about terms of use and customer information, i'll move these round and rename the T&C's and I'll see what i can do about merging the contact stuff, or at least renaming them.

                          Thank you for such helpful and useful feedback and of course for the lovely comments about my stuff! I'm a very happy bunny

                            looking good so far

                            I would say give some more information on how breastfeeding bracelets work and what you do with them as im still bewildered does the baby grab the dangly bit?

                              Hopefully not - no, well mine didn't anyway, I tended to wear it on the same side she was feeding from so she couldn't get to it. You move the dangly bit around the bracelet (it's attached to a lobster clasp) to mark the time your baby last had a feed. They are quite durable and with having turned loops at the ends it would be really hard to get the beads off but I should probably put a warning on there about not being a toy or suitable for children/babies to play with, just in case!
