One thing I think you should change is your image Size. I would recommend w 160 and H 106 . You want to grab the attention of the buyer they have to be attracted to the models to be enticed to click the link. Im assuming you use a resolution close to 800x600 or you just made the images small . The majority of internet users use a higher resolution.

Another thing I recommend is that your contact page also includes an Email address for direct contact. And your business address and phone number. Other wise it looks great.

As far as getting your traffic going. I would suggest Google adwords. Yes they do cost money. But they are good for bringing targeted traffic. Also advertise on as many free post sites as you can and even on blogs.

Hi Darryl
Like your site color scheme.

i would add an About Us page, so buyers get an idea of who you are and what your company is all about.

You shoud add contact phone numbers and a mailing address, otherwise, buyers would be wary to purchase from you.

The product layout is user friendly, and the Logo and company images are professional.

Keep it up, you should start marketing your site and begin making sales.

Good luck.

hi darryl,

one more thing, the larger images should have a scroll bar, otherwise, you can not see the entire image.

Actually one of the best programs I use for website work is Dreamweaver. You can change the image sizes by basically drag and drop and get a real time feel for what your site will look like. Its not a cheap program so you may want to consider the trial version or using a Bit torrent version.

I dont mean change the image size itself just the way the html is sizing the image.One thing you can do is just before the image name add these in the link where the image code is th_


The th_ will make your image a good thumbnail size automatically. Example of a normal website link. Notice the th_ right next to the image name.And the width and height commands.





If you really want to manually resize all the images there are image re sizer programs everywhere just search on google and choose the one you want.
