Customer Showcase

  • Under Consideration
I used to have a website with office live and they have a dedicated section called Customer Showcase http://ask.officelive.com/smallbusiness/ where people could post their website URL and ask for constructive criticism etc. When building my first site I found this invaluable as several eyes are better then just two and even after double checking for mistakes and thinking my colour scheme was OK errors were still pointed out for me to correct. Maybe a Customer Showcase on this forum would be a good addition.

Hello David

Thanks for sharing this idea! I agree that having more than one set of eyes can be very helpful when checking over your site. Many of our users will just post their site asking for a review and our forum users are very glad to participate.

Hi David,

Thanks for the suggestion. As Sanja mentioned, a lot of Yola members use this space on our forum to post their site for feedback from both Yola staff and forum members. We agree it's invaluable. One of our champs has a hot topic on our forum right now where he was gathering feedback on a new banner for his site. We are all delighted with what he came up with after gleaning everyone's feedback!

That being said, I would love to understand your suggestion further. It looks to me that the Office Live link you shared was of a forum as well, so was it able to meet your website review needs in a way that our forum is not currently? If there's anything we can do to improve your experience, we're all ears!

Hi Sanja & Laura
The office live link is indeed a help forum but over on the right it has an image link to their dedicated customer showcase page. The advantages to this is the review requests do not get lost within the general forum questions, you wouldn't have to trawl through a long list of unrelated questions looking for a site to review and it would encourage people who find it hard to help people due to lack of knowledge to participate more in the forum as reviewing a website doesn't need any particular skills and can be a learning curve in itself.

Oh I see what you mean now David, my eye tuned that out as advertising. That is neat the way they have it separated. We'll have to look into how we might be able to execute something similar within our current framework. I can certainly see the value in it!
