    Hi Gilbert -
    Sorry, I just saw this post and see that no one has responded to you yet. I believe I've checked out your site before.

    It looks a little more organized if my memory serves me correctly (I'm getting old so you'll have to forgive me). [​IMG]

    I'm not a big fan of the "electric" green and blue. The more subdued green of your blog page is a lot easier on the eyes and more "professional" looking in my opinion. I think, too, it would look better if you tried to coordinate the colors to match. What I mean is take the color code from your blog green and use it to make the template color on your home page and the other linked pages from your home page.

    Do you know what I mean? As it is, it seems very disjointed as you click to the different links. Each one being completely different in coloring and style. That may just be my own personal preferences speaking, but I like to see each page have a similar look and feel to it.

    Another suggestion is spacing. I would put a couple of blank lines between these two lines...

    Work from home only 2 -3 hours/day while Building a Residual Income
    I will walk you step by step through everything to setup today!!!

    Well, that is the only suggestions I could come up with on the spur of the moment. I didn't notice any obvious typos at first glance.

    Keep up the good work.

    I agree wholeheartedly and have for the past 2 weeks been designing a whole new site in dreamweaver(self taugh and let me tell you it was/is damn hard work) I stayed up until 2 in the morning last night trying to get a menubar working just how I wanted it. I didn't upload it but i definately feel alot better about the direction the site was heading in.

    Once the new site is completely updated and i'm ready to load onto my server i would definately apperciate more input like this.

    I looked at my page on day and said to myself, "WOW...this page sucks!"

    Then decided to do something about it[​IMG]

    Thanks Happywife

    Well, good job. I do love the new color scheme and layout. It is so much more professional looking.

    I discovered that I couldn't get anywhere with your Marketing tips links on the navbar. Perhaps you haven't added those yet?

    I'm still pretty leary about your prospects of doing well with this niche, because it is so competitive, but if you are determined to go this route then go for it in a big way. Add lots and lots of pages of content. That is really the only way you will rise in the search engine rankings and bring in some free traffic.

    You don't have to build pages that promote products or services in online marketing. You can simply do review pages on a whole heap of different products without linking out to them (especially if the review is negative). You can still add Adsense to those pages and get additional income that way. The benefit is increasing the content size of your site and making you more "real" to the search engines.

    Also, have you considered signing on as an affiliate with Sitesell/SBI? They offer a good commission and are a very reliable company to promote in your niche. You don't have to own SBI to sign up as an affiliate. They will let you join their 5 Pillar Affiliate Club for free at [Link removed - Admin]

    That would give you a lot more material for content pages too. You could add them as a possible income stream as well as use their free materials each as a marketing tip page. Just a thought.

    Hope that helps. Keep up the good work.

    Thanks for the words of advice. I agree this market is very competative, however I have had great success with a few very simple "tactics". I can't believe i'm gonig to say that it's not all that important for me to get top listings. Most of my recruitment comes from either my downline(which is quite substantial now)or from ads I post. (I really do have Craigs List all figured out)[​IMG]

    The site is not completely finished as the incomplete links show. I've just been so busy with my booking keeping job that I haven't had a whole lot of time to get around to updating the last few links and adding content. The great thing is that with dreamweaver the hardest part was getting my template the way I wanted. Now it's just a matter of setting down and doing a page a day and within no time I'll have it at 100%.

    What my idea with this is to get as many QUALITY income sreams as possible. I'm a firm believeer that you don't have to spend big to make big on the net, i've been doing well for myself and my downline so far. I'm just looking for more and more. So i definately will be giving your site a look when you sent me the link in a PM as Vishal as "adjusted" the link [​IMG] (way to keep vigilant)

    So please send me the link that was in your post.

    Oops! Sorry about that. I'll pm the link to you. I really do think it will be a really good fit for your site.

    Your plan is sound. If you are able to do as you hope and add a page every day or two, you'll be doing great.

    Sure, it is fantastic to rank in the top at Google, but in a tough niche like yours (or my insurance niche) it isn't as vital to rank as high for your main topic. There are enough additional keywords we can use on other pages to bring in some organic traffic.

    And, as you mentioned, you have your downline and your ads. Wouldn't mind knowing your Craigslist "secrets." [​IMG] pm me if you care to share.

    Keep up the great work.

    That PM should have gotten to you by now, the site is definately not "done" but it is and will forever be a work in progress[​IMG]

    Anyone else willing to chime in with comments on the site?

    'dlove to! Personally i feel it maybe a tad pushy. Given that people have landed on your site i would say it's safe to assume they're more or less interested in what you have to offer. This means that they're probably won't decide to navigate away from your page within the first few paragraphs.

    MUST READ ON, I PROMISE THIS WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE was a good eye-catching opener but you could save the subsequent motivational texts for paragraphs after. Once again, just my personal opinion :)

    Hope this helps,

    As a web designer, I like a site that has an eye catch. I personally thing your site it too old fashion. The trend these days for me are different, but again that is how the world works. Some people like what you do, and others don't.

    First impression take me out of the site. I'm just beign plain honest, but is not to offend ok.


    and good luck with your project[​IMG]
