    The web site looks great. The copy (word ad) should be more concise. Leave out the part about other facepainters not being good. The fact that "they may use acrylic paints which can be uncomfortable and cause allergic reaction" is good enough. Giving your opion on whether they are good or not sounds unprofessional. The line "I'm pretty good" is weak and not nessecary, I can see by the photos the quality of your work. If you want to say something funny and more positive say, "I'm the best face painter in the country, of course all the really good facepainters live in the city."

    This line is not clear and it doesn't have an ending parenthesis, "(call and I think you'll be surprised just how much so for what you get! Both most likely are typos. The pics are good I like the way they float up with the balloons. I love the butterfly face.

    I need better pictures, they're not the best work of mine by any means. I just haven't taken many good pics. The pics I thought were gonna be the best have usually not turned out :( Anyways, I wrote that up quickly and I changed what you noted. Thanks and blessings,

    Mark

    P.S. for example that butterfly is kinda not my favorite way to do it at all, both those butterflies are messed up LOL but they're the only butterfly pictures I've had that've turned out. That's what you get trying to snap snapshots at an event and get model releases. I need to get a few of my cousins to model for me some saturday afternoon when we can have the time to get good photos!

    It looks great. It definitely looks better than my website, but then again, everyone's websites looks better than mine!

    Hi Markie

    It's great you have your site up and running ... I hope it's beginning to work for you.

    How many 'hits' (visits per day) are you getting and what percentage are you converting into gigs?

    Because that's what a site is for, isn't it?

    I've only just jopined here and don't want to be over critical before people know what I am about ... but IF you are trying to get business from your site, there are a number of things you should change.

    Let me know and we can discuss it here. That may prove useful to others. If not, I'll happily give constructive comments on anyone's site ... along with solutions!

    Go for it John, I posted for criticism. Right now I'm at 0 hits per day with no conversion rates... The site and my whole business JUST launched.

    Markie,

    Forgive me if it's there and I just didn't see it, but is there a photo of YOU on your website? I saw lots of cute kids but no clown. If I were going to your website as a potential customer, I would want to see what you looked like. And maybe a photo or two of you in action.

    Markie:

    I just read on another post that you are not a clown, which explains why there are no clown pictures on your website! It still would be nice to have a photo of you at work though.

    Okay, I need a picture of me at work. I know that. There is a picture that contains me but it's tiny and hard to see. I just don't have the picture you desire. I'm working on it...

    Hi Markie,

    Very nice site, hope you don't mind me giving you a little constructive advise

    Here it is
    • you should put all your images in a folder named "images" and then link to them there. This avoids problems with search engines and other browser problems
    • inside the code for your images tags insert
      Code:
      style="margin:5px;
      so it looks like this
      Code:
      <img src="DSC00131.jpg" width="320" height="240" align="left" style="margin:5px;>
      - This will give you a little room between the text and the pictures for ease of reading
    • You want to make the titles of your page as descriptive as possible - this is how search engines are going to find you , and the best shot you have is in your title.
    I love the flash, very nice
    Hope this helps

    Its all about SEO my friend, about being seen on search engines... if you do it right you can get 500 hits a day in your first month after launching your site... SEO (search engine optimisation) is my side job (the one I do during the week)....

    I can help anyone with SEO advise....

    Thanks clowning around - I'd never heard images should be in a seperate folder before. Any reason why that is?

    I did add some image margin... 2px on most, 4 on the front page.. for that reason.

    Thanks!
