Hi Karen :-)
First thing I noticed when I went to the site, was that I didn`t know
what it was about. So BOOM!...there was a blurb, "What is Oddpodz?"
Perfect, I thought, and read the sentence. I clicked "Read more..."
Yikes! I run into an About Us page that has no more than what I already
knew, then goes off into legal disclaimers and something. Reading a bit
more, I ran into a bunch of confused jargon. Hey....all I wanted to do
was know a little bit more about what the heck is Oddpodz, y`know?
I got a "sense" that Oddpods somehow involved creative something, and somehow involves blogs.
The big questions are, "So what?" and "How does this matter to me?"
I saw the test to determine if I`m creative. I really don`t care all
that much. I`ll assume I`m creative "enough," and here`s a site that`s
supposedly going to be useful to me, offer me something, and get me
involved in a creative way.
But what is it?
I think that`s your main issue of the moment. I discounted your above
list of things you`ll remove, and I agree with the list. But to replace
it, I`d suggest having a much more direct approach, talking to your
At the moment, you have no "voice."
One of your problems (above) is narrowing down your target market. That
could be anyone creative. Will you focus on inventors, musicians,
painters, crafting people, magicians, alchemists, nuclear physicists,
theoretical mathematicians? :-)
You must have at one point had a "Eureka!" moment. That`s the big bang
that started the entire idea of having a Web site. Remembering back to
that moment, what did you envision? What flashed through your mind in
that instant that spawned the initial overview of The Idea?
