This is ours


www.awomanstouch.net

Let me know what you professionals out there think, what we could do better or different.

We started this year with the website, because we lost a couple of our "picture books" with the customer swearing they gave them back to us. Now we just give them a card with the website and most people can access it.

Ours takes a bit too load because it has so many pictures and gimrickery, We made a consicious decision on this as we feel that people that look at our site will take the time and they want to see a load of pictures, not writing. We doubt that many folks will "surf" into it so that was the decision that we made. Let me know what you think.

Make sure you drag your mouse over the banner at the top. That is the coolest effect!

Thanks to all. Al B

Here's my website. I'm proud of it, cause I did it myself but I'm no computer expert. Also, NetObjects is a pretty sucky program. It has lots of unexplained glitches. In other words, it's really easy to change something and work with it and get it the way you want only to find that when you "publish" (put it up on the net) it's all wrong, not what you wanted and forget about fixing it.

But all of that aside, my site has a lot of the content that I wanted my customers to see. And it's getting more and more. And to me, that's what's important.

Several of these forums members have emailed me with solutions but as I'm in my busiest season right now, I plan on exploring the possible solutions as soon as business slows down. But for now, here it is:

I wish! I hired a friend of mine to do the job for me. I only know irrigaiton,landscapiing,etc not that good when it comes to puters and websites. The good thing about the software is that I'm the webmaster. So I'm not tied down to someone else adding to the site. The question is has it got me any more work? I don't think so but when a customer ask what kind of lights do I sell I can say well go to my website and look and you can see the fixtures and the prices.

We are at www.mdvaden.com

Currently, we have no links page. Not until next June will we add reciprocal links any further.

And for lawn, we already have a local service we send lawn care to.

But if any of you - not in competition with us - would like to boost the informational sections of your website, regarding info links, feel free to add our URL in, captioning the Tree Care Advice nature our site provides.

All our advice topics are designed for self service home gardener application.

Outside of the debates in arborist forums, we have not seen a tree service site yet that offers tree care advice as consolidated as on our 2 advice pages.

Hello All,

I am not a landscape professional - Instead, I help service businesses improve marketing and sales results.

I am currently researching THREE WEBSITE QUESTIONS and thought this forum might be a good place to start. I hope the answers are valuable for everyone:

1. What do you hope/know to be the main benefit of a website for your business?

Attracting leads
Converting prospects into clients (portfolio)
Reducing client service costs (posting terms of service, next cut date, etc.)

2. How can businesses that serve a relatively limited geography best promote their services via the internet?

Online Yellow pages?
Community sites?
Chamber of commerce links?


3. Given that good referrals are often the life-blood of most service businesses, have you been able to use the internet to help spread good "Word of Mouth"?


I am sure hard numbers would also be greatly appreciated by other members: (ie: "we usually get around 60 requests for estimates via the website in a year. That results in about 20 sales. Around 15 of them are for lawn care, the rest are for landscaping")

Regards,

M. Ian Bowman

Our main use for our website is as a multi-purpose tool. Maybe similar to a knife with many funtions.

We get about 40 visitors per day. I think that 8 are from Oregon here, and about 30 from out of state and out of country.

Our site is not designed to promote only our business. It is to promote our region.

How we list our site, and where we promote certain contents, we cannot disclose. For as the benefits increase, it becomes obvious that this is not an area to share most trade secrets.

Some benefits are:

1. SAVING TIME. Before, after installation, we would have to explain mulching and irrigation to customers, or give them a hand-out. Most have internet, so we direct them to the site's advice pages.

2. REFERENCES. Some of the better ones are listed at the site, so we don't even have to offer many.

3. PHOTOS. Working better and better all the time. It takes time to accumulate photos, and wait for projects to mature, but we're getting there. Before, people would say "can I see your work". Now, many call and say "I've seen samples, give me an estimate".

4. CREDIBILITY. Many people never even go to a website. But it sounds credible, and indicates the lack of fly by night business.

5. EXISTENCE. People see a picture of the real me, no guessing who is at the other end.

6. POSTING OF A FULL RESUME.

7. FLYERS NEED LESS INFORMATION. Cleaner, less cluttered flyers. People are directed to the site.

8. People that have "heard the name" can search easier for a name on the net, than for "heard the phone number".

mdvaden
06-09-2003, 02:20 AM
Oh, forgot to add:

We constantly get emails from people that work on websites offering all kinds of great ways to design and redesign sites.

Could care less. Its our intention to exclude bells, whistles, gadgets and little cartoon mowing men, etc..

PICTURES SPEAK LOUDLY. We do not want anything that detracts from the photos that we put on our site.

Every page, even our contact page, will eventually have at least one photo, but a dozen or more on some pages, the ones that our counter shows to be the most popular.

We offer advice pages for self-service people. If we can't work for them, then we will let them tell people where they get sound advice. So every flyer lists that.

Before, maybe 1 person in 50 will call from a flyer. Since all the flyer could offer was work for cash. So I'd imagine 49 flyers got tossed.

But if every flyer offers free advice, many of the 49 can keep it or our name on hand.

So the advice is a subtle long-term name propagation method.

Finally got a minor facelift done to our homepage - poppies to replace a clip art looking tree, and a nice blue header color to display the white text better.

Plus addition of a new start to finish page.

I spent a long time looking for the significant grammar mistakes. There are a few insignificant ones, mainly deep in the advice pages.

Still maintaining a rating of 4 on Googles scale of 1 to 10.

It looks nice Danny, but doing it only in Flash is a mistake. Not everyone installs flash and it's quite slow for people on dialup.

Also in the wake of whatever changes Microsoft has to make due to a recent court loss it will likely break your (and many others) site.

http://www.infoworld.com/article/03/09/03/HNmicrosoftsloss_1.html?business
http://news.com.com/2100-1032-5074799.html

""If you're currently using a plug-in, you will have to change your pages quite significantly," said one person familiar with Microsoft's post-verdict plans. "There might be tools to help you do so, but currently they don't exist.""

DannyHatt
09-17-2003, 02:37 PM
Very interesting and thank you for that info. I was not aware of it.

Like the Carvers site that is in flash, i also have an html site behind it for dialups such as www.carverslandscape.com.

Seeing that Macromedia hosted a meeting for Microsoft, I'm sure they have got something up their sleeves.

I would think that Eolas is looking for a cash contribution rather than putting third parties out of business. If it is Eolas intent to try and make a browser for IE's replacement, they better get on the stick and start writing.

After reading the article, it almost seems like Microsoft can develop something on the server side to translate the content to the browser in a browser format.

Either way, they have some work cut out for themselves, and our work time goes up.

No sense in trying to figure out their stratigy, we will just have to wait and see..

Thanks for the info.

If not you may want to check it out, you may have a trademark infringment with Toys R Us.

is Lawns R Us Inc incorporated yes and my name is registered since it is incorporated Truly if there was proof of my name taking business from there business, Then they might be able to take me to court. Also my r is not backwards. If it was then it would be a trade mark name. truely there can only be one name with the same legal spelling. If a company name is registered or reserved or has closed up shop went bankrup the name can not be used again. Some day i want my company to be a franchise in Wisconsin.

bullgrazer- there are alot of good ideas in your website, but I think as a whole it's very ineffective. There is too much that is placed in long blocked paragraphs. Be concise. There is also alot of information not pertinant to your site... I know you want to tribute your mother, which is understandable, but I think having that pop up before you get to the sit is a very large diversion. Its' an ok idea to have if it really means that much to do but I would suggest a little more subtlness becuase ithas nothing to do with the service you are selling.

We have added more to our fairly new...

SAFE AND TOXIC WOODS FOR PET BIRDS web page.

It's available at

www.mdvaden.com

http://www.mdvaden.com/images/peppercrystal.jpg

This is not only useful for bird people - but if landscape people have bird owners, they could recommend some of the safe trees so bird owners could use the wood for perches. Tree limbs are better than dowels, because branch diameters vary, which is better for birds.

The pesticide use on a property can affect what is toxic or non-toxic for birds, but without chemicals, there are a lot of safe tree wood for birds like parrots, conures, parakeets, cockatiels and cockatoos.

After slightly after a year, I figured out this getting-the-website-displayed-high thing.

We are in Portland, Oregon. My website must compete for listings in 3 industry facets - landscaper, designer, tree service.

Go to www.google.com and see where we display for each of:

Portland landscape design
Portland landscape designer
Portland landscape designers

Portland tree service
Portland tree services

Portland tree care

Portland pruning

Portland arborist
Portland arborists
Portland certified arborists

Portland landscape
Portland landscaper

"Portland" can be substituted with "Beaverton" or "Tigard" and we still do fairly reasonable.

And that's for 3 areas of website placement competition.

:cool:

www.idealgreen.com (http://www.idealgreen.com)

Our company is based out of Menasha, WI

I designed and update our site every month. Although it's relatively new, I think I have most the bases covered. The "Form" page was the hardest out of all the work and a bit complex setting up the hosting but all worth it!

idealgreen, site looks good but i'd recommend shrinking those truck pics down. to avoid losing dial-up visitors, you should shoot for around 50k or so of images, especially on a home page. your trucks account for over 200k. you could keep the same quality and have each be no more than 25-30k or so.

as for the form, you might start investigating a more secure form. any form that uses a hidden email address in the form page itself opens the door for ridiculous amounts of inbound spam, and much worse, spammers can use it to send outbound from you. they don't need to even specifically target you, as the process is driven by web bots searching specifically for those types of holes.

Tony,

Does FrontPage 2003 offer a secure form or are you suggesting I use my hosting providers email account? FrontPage offered a wizard in making my form page so that is what I used at the time. I know I can setup webmail but still working out all the complex issues involved making my site better. My hosting is only $4.00 per month with TotalChoice but "You" do everything yourself. I basically just work on the site when I have time so I don't spend a great deal of time working on cleaning up loop holes and so forth.
The images I can work on fairly easy.

I appreciate the feedback very much! Also, in replying to your email, I normally return the mail with our company email account and not our personal. I just forgot to change the account before replying to you.

Check out hostsave.com. This hosting service accepts frontpage and other formats. I pay the $8.00 per month which gives me 500 e-mail accounts and tons of storage space for the site. My site is currently under construction but take a look and tell me what you think.

looks good. a couple of recs:

- your logo looks like it was resized while in the .gif format. doing so leads to fuzzy/grainy text. if you have the original format (vector-based), you can resize it and then convert it to the desired .gif size.

- try making your menu as a gif to try and get rid of the graininess. with your gradient background color on the menu, it might not work too well, but it's worth a shot to make the buttons sharper. or lose the gradient for a flat color .gif and you'll be set.

- on high-res screens, the pages feature some upper and lower centered features, but the body text is left justified making it look awkwardly off-balance.

- your about us logo looks bad for the same reason listed above. rule of thumb for you is that flat color artwork should be in .gif format. .jpg format, as you've used, is for photographic work. the formats render color differently, so it's a simple fix to recreate those as gifs.

- the services page has grossly oversized pics. if you save them correctly, you can keep the same quality and have the files be 75% smaller.

- you might try a better way to organize the services page. with so many services scattered around the page, it's hard to see what's what. maybe try laying them out in colored tables or some other format to give a more cohesive look.

- not a priority, but if you wanted to go through the effort, your gallery images could be significantly smaller while maintaining a similar quality.

- comb your site for typos. "landscaping ompany in Plano"

- one little editorialization: pointing out smitty's site as looking too much like a template is ironic give the quantity of "borrowed" content you have on your site. do you have permission to use that?

- out of curiousity, did you do the site yourself or hire out?

The site's functionality looks good. Presentation is nice. Navigation is user-friendly....BUT the index page is flash and Google, Yahoo, etc. can't read flash sites real well and that will play a big part in your traffic.

why does it stay on the same page when you click the links. Nothing wrong with it I guess. Just wondering.

If you are talking about the past jobs...like KFC, McDonalds, and the other ones that show a history of the companys, you actually have to click on the spelled out names of the companies beside their logos. As far as the rest of the links they require you to double click them. There is one at the bottom with the street signs that is non functional because it is kinda an extra link that I haven't made go anywhere yet. Thank you for the feedback!! I want to make my site the best that it can possibly be!

Just a word of advice,
If your website doesn't have a blog within it, that might be something you will want to consider adding. Search Engines like Google are more likely to find your site if you add new content regularly.

So add a blog and put up a post (at least 1 per week) about anything yard care. That will keep Google coming back which will put you higher on the results page.

Site looks really good. Once you get more videos added, you may want to have a separate tab for videos so that viewers don't have to go to Photo Gallery to find your videos. Know what I mean?

Just my two cents. Really a great looking site. Contact page, all of it.

Good idea. Your end goal should be a website (or web page) that people will either bookmark, print out, or share.

Have you checked to make sure your site is print friendly? Especially with the blog portion, you will want to provide your reader's with the option to print, save, and/or share.

It could use some work but it's not bad at all, especially in comparison to some others I have seen. For a local business site, it really is not bad at all. I'm seeing some CSS3 implemented in your navigation buttons which is great.

You could work on using more "targeted" title tags. From what I understand, search engines pay a lot of attention to title tags. Yours are "about us" "contact us" "home" and "services". You might consider "About KKE Landscaping" "Contact Krayzee Landscaping" or "Contact Krayzee Lawncare" depending on the keyword you are targeting.

I don't think you need to "redo" it. Just smooth out some of the rough edges and add some more content, and optimize things like your title tags.

Did you develop it yourself or did you pay someone to do it?

Not bad at all. Especially since you did it yourself, nice job. You've got your title tags all figured out and stuff Thumbs Up

Graphics are good, navigation is easy. You have "referrals" in your About Us page; have you ever thought about having a "Testimonials" or "Referrals" page all to itself? You could include more pictures, and have some customers write up a paragraph or two about how good you are.. Just a suggestion.

I'm a bit OCD about grammer on sites like this so I thought I'd point out a little error on your Contact page. It says "If you sees Gary or Chase around town working or waiting..." That should be 'see' right?

Your right, I was able to place in the top 3 spots of google with 3 different page titles. All of them linking to my site, i also placed 4&5 from back links as well. As well as the number one spot on the google maps section.

I will admit your site it rather bland. I also found a grammar correction you should address in your about me section.

"One Krayzee Kajun Enterprises LLC is owned and operated me.
By me doing the work ,I provide a personal realtionship with my
customers. Something that is rare in the buisness ( Business is also spelled wrong)world today."

Im assuming you don't want that extra "me" in there.

I would also Change that entire line to something more like. "One Krayzee Kajun Enterprises LLC is an owner operated company, Being so helps build personal relationships with its customers, And helps make sure the job is done right the first time. Which as we all know is a rarity these days."

"Locally Owned and Operated by Iraqi War Veteran

MEMBER OF BETTER BUSINESS BUREAU SINCE 2007"

Why is this all caps?

Also man yahoo site builder is just like any other site builder, the more time you put into it the better it will look. If you only spent an hour making the entire site then it will look like you only spent an hour doing it.

You need to take the time and make your logo work on the site as well. Once you get your logo on the main page it will be more personal looking. You also need to Change the template you're using on there, the current one looks kind of lame. Make it more lawn/landscape friendly.

Also most of you're text it all different sizes and fonts, Pick one and make it uniform throughout the entire site.

Excellent! Thumbs Up Easy navigation, the text is easy to read, great colors, and I'm lovin the Photo Gallery.

If you haven't considered adding a blog to your site already (this thread has mentioned it time and time again) you may want to look into that. Installing wordpress onto your site is a breeze and it makes it super easy to add new content. You will definitely want to do that. Especially during the slower months, you will get very little traffic to your site. If you're adding new blog posts, you can share them on your facebook page and get traffic that way. Also, Google needs a reason to index your site. Adding new content is the best way to get Google to look at ya.

Good luck!

Hey Jamie,

I just took a moment to look at your site from SEO stand point.
The keywords and page title description are good.

You could probably get away with a few more keywords, but too few is much better than loading down the site.


One of the most common mistakes people make is overdoing the keywords and descriptions. More is not better. The robots will see 40 keywords and totally skip over it.


You guys do good work and the images are good quality and great videos.
So many people in our industry miss the need for good quality images and videos. You guys really have that covered.

I took a quick look. You need work on your title descriptions and keywords.
The phrase "This Website was built from Blank Website by WixDemo using wix.com" is placed in your meta description.
That is not going to help you much.

google Rank 2.82 DomainRank 1.65 0.88
google Trust 0 Domain trust 1.04 0
Total Links 5 Total Links 5 5
External Followed Links 5
External Followed Links5 5
Internal Followed Links 0
Linking Root Domains 1
I know these numbers don't make sense

The data is from a tool that shows how Google rates your pages for trust and gives you low or high ranking.

The google trust rank is 0. This doesn't mean your site is not good.
It just means that Google cannot verify anything.

When you search lawn care southgate MI. this is what customers see without the bottom numbers.
You are at the bottom of the page.
The two other competitors on the page below you do not have a website.
