  1. Hi Interesting site -- lots of extras -- cannot decide whether i like the cursor feature or not -- but i'm guessing there's only upside with the feature I am not an expert but i question the use of blue given the "party" and "fun time" sort of approach you're taking with the brand. Blue seems to conflict with the brand. I've chosen a shade of blue on my site because it's supposed to convery calm, trust, intelligence, responsibility, etc -- and that's important to my brand Your goal seems primarily to be support your sales efforts with wholesalers, distributors so maybe that's why you chose blue? I'd consider a more party and fun color -- but it looks like your labels are blue as well. You are "Party" Sloth -- consider carrying that theme to your brand colors. Some quick articles on color: Color meanings and the art of using color symbolism Business, Sales and the World Wide Web Are In Color Color Theory for Designers, Part 1: The Meaning of Color Only other thought -- more Product Value Concepts content on landing page? Put the 3 primary values your niche wants on the landing page -- I've become an advocate of using "Google Keyword Planner" to gain a deeper understanding of what people are searching for in your niche -- can you frame your product using some of the most popular keywords your niche uses? If your target is wholesalers and distributors -- have you set up the site to sell to THEIR most sought after needs? Keyword Planner can tell you what they're primary issue is -- my guess is they only want to add product they know will MOVE. Maybe add a page just for wholesalers that addresses their primary concerns -- you have penetration in your local market of X -- etc. Your brag points. I'm going to say wholesalers could care less what your product is -- only that the market wants it -- so you have to create regional demand in the vegan community -- then push to regional wholesalers? Hope some of this makes sense! Hey -- if you want to bounce your business development strategy off someone, let me know -- I find what you're attempting to do interesting
  2. Hi Jay I haven't done much to concern myself with speed and performance other than follow squarespace guidelines I've made some images as low quality as i can while ensuring they don't look poor -- that's about it. One thing -- I've taken some images and overlayed them with opaque white to make them less crisp so that the black font would be more easily seen You can do some free photo editing here -- Pixlr Another beginner tip -- I was able to add some CSS code to highlight some area of text -- all i did was google what i wanted to do and some sites have the code right there -- you copy and paste the code and voila! -- you did it. Key thing -- you need to know what you want to apply the CSS code to. You want to add "Squarespace Block Identifier" to your browser -- it ID's the blocks on your webpage -- its a great productivity tool.
  3. Bangank Looked at your Freelancer page -- looks like you are a power developer I'll keep you in mind when i need real work done!
  4. I see i responded to your pm and not here -- decided to share my workaround here as well -- I put an Image Block into the footer with the logo i wanted to add. Then used the social block for FB. Not the greatest, but it works ... Now I wish i could put a proper FB Logo in the Image Block section! 🙂 Could i replace the Squarespace FB Logo with a proper FB Logo?
  5. Hi Derrick Clicked through to your site -- I used to have a thing for Annie Lennox 🙂 But who didn't ... Easy to see you love writing and you write well -- that site is about giving yourself a place to express yourself -- right? In a sense, The ShareLife concept takes what you do today, keeps it 100% private and gives your "recipients" the option to someday buy their own subscription and "share forward" your writing and images to their children and grandchildren -- and so on. Everything we post on FB and other social media will get lost over time. Technically, whatever people post in ShareLife could be "shared forward" as long as there's an internet. 🙂 The Form in the Header -- I know -- I was not thrilled to put it there but the people helping me pull this project together insisted i put it there. They also insisted i have a pop up. Having a sign-up form in that location is very common (I made it as small as i was able) and they claimed the pop-up will increase conversions by 35%. I don't know if it gets me anything but about 10% of my conversions come from the pop up. I don't want to be a pushy site in any way -- prefer to respect my subscriber base which i assume would mostly be >40 and have seen everything -- but sometimes you have to compromise a bit. With the forms, I'm just doing what I'm told. 🙂 I've thought the writing community would be a very good subscriber segment since writers love to write and this gives them a chance to have their writing passed on over multiple generations -- doesn't have to be family either. I've wanted to engage the writing community to gauge their reaction but haven't yet had the nerve to post a link on Reddit or Quora. I don't want to be tacky -- not sure how to proceed -- I suppose I'll figure it out eventually -- maybe this post will push me to find a way. Thanks for the feedback! Bernie
  6. Site URL: https://www.sharelife.plus/ Hi I've seen some other posts with very similar requests but the responses weren't clear (to me, yet another beginner) I simply want to add a badge to the footer, and want to link the badge to the badge's website I think it belongs to the right of the current footer links but wouldn't want to change the center-aligned look of the footer links I assume this requires some css ... Is this possible?
  7. Site URL: https://www.sharelife.plus/ Would be interested in any feedback you folks could provide on my site The saas product is in development -- the current objective is to collect "early adopter" email addresses I've been advertising on Google and have an okay CTR -- Conversion Rate is Okay -- but i'd like to improve my conversion rate I don't want to hard sell -- rather respect people who generally would be > 30 years old and have some experience I believe establishing trust is needed -- are there obvious things i could add or delete? Anything small? Obvious? I have one badge i can add to the site -- will have to create a separate post elsewhere on that since i'd prefer to add a linked badge in the footer -- and see no way to do that! Thanks in advance!
