Yes, it is. The only problem I have with the "Made in USA" label is that it also applies to American Territories. My work in Anti human trafficking programs made me aware of this. A major clothing factory in American Somalia victimized hundreds of people while producing "Made in USA" products. I personally would like to see "Made in USA" and "Made in USA Territories" to differentiate between the two.
When I come across landing pages like this, I tend to hit the fast scroll just to see how long this ridiculous page is - then I quickly exit.
Personally, I think your landing page should welcome your visitor and give an introduction to you and your serivces. A well placed navigation menu will direct visitors to the pages which appeal to their needs.
- well, that`s my two cents.
You didn`t mention this, but I hope you remembered to factor in one very important expense for this business: author royalties.
Failure to pay royalties based on multiple users could and most likely will result in lawsuits from the Authors Guild, the publishers, and the authors. Unlike libraries, you will be sharing these books for a profit, which can leave you open to copyright infringement lawsuits. Make sure you purchase a multiple user license for each book you acquire. You can do this by contacting the publishers of the books. It would probably be in your best interest to buy the books directly from the publishers, along with the license.
As an author and a publisher, I can tell you we take copyright issues very seriously. In fact, there has been a movement (for quite some time) by some authors and publishers (not me or my company) to charge libraries for multiple-use licenses. Most authors do not make enough money to quit their day jobs, so royalties are a touchy subject with them. Good luck with your venture.
Irish? Don`t tell me you can see my red hair through the computer? Yes, I am Irish, first generation American. I chose Claddagh because it has a very special meaning: love, friendship, and loyalty.
To pronounce Claddagh think Klad-duh or with a NY accent imagine "ladder" (pronounced ladda) with a "C" in front. Now before I upset or offend anyone - I am from NY; so I feel qualified to make this suggestion.
Hope this helps, Craig.
