    Default My Online Shop is now Officially Open..Comments Pls..

    Hi all!!!

    I decided to launch my site on this date (8-8-..so even though I am still adding more items, I will launch it now. I'll do my very best to fill in all the categories. As of now (12:30pm-UK time), the only categories working are the WOMEN"S FASHION - CLOTHING AND ACCESSORIES.

    Without all the help I got from this forum, my site would not be possible.

    Please try my site out and if there may be any improvements or changes I have to do, please feel free to inform me.

    I have one more problem, but it's out of building a site. But if anyone can help me out, thank you so much! It's about Royal Mail Delivery. Would anyone advice me on how to properly charge my customers on the delivery rates within UK? When you read my site, most of the items are in pre-order basis, so they are not on-hand yet. So there's no possibility I can the the exact weight of each.

    Special thanks to Marincky, Karen Mac, Navaldesign & Lcoisas for all the help. God Bless you all! God Bless this forum!

    Looks gorgeous!

    I noticed that the separators (flashing lines) were running across the headings in a few places (eg. the 'Women's Accessories' page)
    I'm using IE today as my browser, if that helps.

    I did personally find the flashing lines a little busy and distracting.

    Your 'about us' page just needs a little rework of the grammar.

    Best of luck with your new shop! :)

    Hi Pink Basket. I just love the painted bracelets. They are gorgeous! I too can do without the busy (moving) lines. For me, they detract and are almost hypnotic while trying to look at the items below it, (basically, they move the eyes away from the product). Other than them running through the word Accessories under all of the categories, the site appears well planned out and organized. Good job Lady. Good luck with your business and your site.

    I know you wont like me.. but get rid of those flashy bars and scrolling marquees. If im a shopper im totally distracted by watching what all these things do.. they flash too much.. Use something solid to divide your pages.. the all pink is flashy enough by its lonesome...dont make it guady.. go professional..

    I agree with above about the marquee. Also your banner on the other pages are way to big with kbs at 105kbs added with the images it took a while to load some pages to much empty space. color wise right now is good your footer banner looks streched out goo start but needs work with keyword phase titles and optermized.

    Hi Pink Basket. Wow, what a difference. But on a couple of your pages (believe Men and Kids Clothing - can't remember), that the separator runs through the text. That should be an easy and minor fix though. Not sure if you've noticed but you have some text running away from the page on your FAQ page. Other than a few minor issues as I've mentioned, I think that it looks good-It's very pink. I'm not one to really be drawn to the color pink, but knowing that you have those cute bracelets, will make me come back again.

    Hi,
    Not sure if that's the effect you want but some flowers are overlapping the 'we would love to hear from you' text on the left. Keep up with the hard work!

    Cheers,

    Those things all have their place.. I have hundreds of animations.. flashy bars etc etc.. but they dont go well on a sales site.. except in a few instances.. like special sales.. FREE SHIPPING.. something like that..

    When you are doing online sales.. remember a couple of things. Lots of people shop while at work.. They want your page to load quickly and quietly.. They want to shop quickly and quietly.. You dont want to wow them with flashy webdesigns.. but with CLEVER web design to best show off your product.. If the flashy stuff overpowers the senses.. they cant see your product cuz they are looking at that.

    I think your slide shows are fine for the items themselves.. and.. I would consider slowing them down just a tad...when you have some time to go back and work a lil here and there.. dont rush out to do the whole site at once.. just here and there.. and see if makes any difference in your sales for the items you slowed...if it does.. continue working thru the codes.

    Very pretty front page. Bright and cheerful.
    You have some flowers separating your sections on the right of the page that are covering the script. I would take those out, as your page looks good without them. I would also move all that side up just a little so that there was not such a big gap between your 'Happy Shopping' scroll and your 'Web Design' Banner.
    Your pictures of items are great and well put together.
    Just thought - you could add a size chart? What's **** size 50 in English?
    Good luck. I'll be back.

    That missing word is 'what you wear on your foot'. Why does BV do that? - it's not a naughty word!

    You have a fantastic looking site there, really nice design and layout well done.

    You just need to work on the optimisation now. Look at doing your page titles, descriptions, meta tags etc.
    Don't aim for success if you want it; just do what you love and believe in, and it will come naturally.

    Your site looks great! You have made most adjustments from what I could see.
    Your prices are also very reasonable. How much for the 2nd model in page 10? j/k
    I love looking at these new sites and their corresponding critques. It is most indirectly helpful. Thanks!

    Thanks! Yah..I think that's what I have to do now..I ignored those thing first as I thought viewers wont see them.. But I do know that I have to go back to each page to fix those things..

    You've been a lot of help..Thanks so much!

    Oh..you're very right..reading other's posts and critiques, helps us all a lot..we learn from them. Thanks for the comment about the price. I need it so much! It's my 1st time to sell and I really made sure that my price would be reasonable enough for customers to patronise.

    Have a nice day!

    I can still see the flowers and no Vodka - honest!
    Two rows of dots with flowers in them.

    Hi Patsy!

    I really don't know how to fix that problem as I really can't see them..

    I viewed it both in IE and firefox and I've seen no problem. What browser do you use?

    Can I ask others to see if you also can notice the same problem?

    Thanks so much!
