I really wonder how much a site like this, and many other sites
gain by "new style" development. If the site is interesting,
informative, has a strong sales pitch and customer action message, so
what if it`s "boring" to those in the leading edge of development? I
see a lot of these new sites that don`t actually work very well in
terms of moving product.
I took a look (seeing white dots, not pink) :-D and got the idea
immediately. I was a bit creeped out by the third picture to the far
right of three, up there on the main banner, just under the "IES" of
the Blinkies logo. The lady`s eye looked like she`d jammed a needle
into it, all red and about to bleed red tears. :-) Maybe a better
image? Even the first picture is showing that red-eye and could be
cleaned up in Photoshop.
Are these waterproof, and can someone go swimming with them?
On the visibility, you might take a look at something Kathy`s just now gotten involved with: Buy it Sell it
We`ve been increasingly disappointed with eBay, and a lot of commerce
communities are trying to develop something better. One big problem is
customization, and this particular site makes it easy.
The reason for the recommendation is that it does some automated submissions to places like Googlebase.
Another thing we found that seemed to help get us more visibility was to install Google Analytics
on our site and pages. It just seemed that when we did so, we began to
climb the results pages more than before doing so. It`s also free, and
you can do it yourself.
Read the various forum topics here about Search-Engine Optimization
(SEO) writing, and see if you can do something in your own writing. In
your meta-tag "description," if you can keep it to 150 characters
(letters, spaces, numbers), you`ll have a more concise message when
someone finds you in a search engine results page. Your current
description uses 323 characters:
Everyone can wear Blinkies sexy,
glamorous false eyelashes with a permanent eyeliner! A revolutionary
new product you have to see to believe. Several styles of premium human
hair lashes. Designed for Chemotherapy and Radiation patients and
others with Alopecia Areata and other medical conditions that result in
This will be cut off at 150 characters, with a "..." at the end.
What you`d want to do is sell your product right from the results page.
Just tossing out a general idea:
Blinkies: false eyelashes for chemo
& radiation patients, alopecia, and other conditions resulting in
hair loss. Reusable, made of premium human hair.
You want something that explains the whole idea in those 150 characters, then
use your landing page on the site to go into it further.
The only other thing I didn`t see that might help on the first page, is
a quick link to "How to Order." Even if people scroll only halfway down
the page, they should have that fast option to buy right away. Maybe right below your list of basic features?
