People don't read my menu! - Page 2

post #16 of 27
all techno-babble aside, even great looking menus don't get read! so don't feel bad icon_wink.gif there's always going to be someone who doesn't think to look for the info themselves; they feel more comfortable just asking you directly.

to WickedGoodies point, though, it's hard to ignore a nice lookin' picture ... yum!

Hey ScratchSF
I can help you and anyone else with their website. But I must tell you that you do not own your domain. I usually do not work on a site that is not owned by the person paying to have the site designed. Your domain is owned by a company from Az

Domains By Proxy, LLC
DomainsByProxy.com
14747 N Northsight Blvd Suite 111, PMB 309
Scottsdale, Arizona 85260

I am in the process of recoding all of our sites. We have changed our domains totally. But I can work on it if you really need me. I would suggest that you get away from Go Daddy. That is not a good ISP at all. In fact, the worst. First thing that I suggest is trying to talk the owner of the domain into moving the domain to another ISP. Then we can talk about working on your site, and getting you what you want and need. I can work on it and recode it, or re-design it for you.

Yes I do, I am listed privately. Please email me your website (for web developing) and I'll take a look at your work!

But back on topic, people don't read. My old website had a ton of text on it - I dumped it all and with the exception of a few pages, I changed it to be as simple as possible. But even so, people don't read and they most certainly have no intention of ever doing their own math!

Amen! Some lady contacted me after looking at my site and asked "How much will you charge for 50 xyz (exact name of the flavor) cupcakes?" My prices are listed RIGHT ON TOP of the flavors in bold. No way anyone could have missed that. Sometimes I wonder if people do that so that the cake decorator will quote a lower price. How much will I charge? The exact amount I stated on my blooming website!

Elcee, I knew what you meant... I was joking.

I have two flavors of cupcakes due next week that I have not developed. So I get to spend tomorrow night experimenting until I get it right.

That customer is looking for a quantity discount.

You're very talented Linda, and I love your Dahlia cake! But your website Menu and Pricing page is difficult to read. People looking for a cake are not interested in also looking through a menu. I wish I could offer more advice, but my techno skills are exceptionally limited.

Thanks, Mimi! I am planning on revamping it over the next few weeks or so.

Oh, I never considered that. Thanks for pointing it out MimiFix.

I have to agree with Jen that people don't read, except for me. LOL. I guess having an IT day job means that the geek I am, I read websites. Jen - I'm the one that proof read your old and new websites for you. icon_smile.gif
