Hi guys,
Just wanted to share some good news for those of you signed up as Yola Experts. We have now created a forum for the Yola Experts to interact and get feedback from each other.

Many Yola Experts have found it useful to compare notes, share tips, and offer their services with other Yola Experts. Here is where you can find a PhotoShop guru, photographer, copywriter, or any other set of skills you need to complete that client program.

We've seen that a very successful model is for someone who is sales oriented to go out and visit businesses and then sub out the building of the websites on Yola to another Expert who specializes in design.

Have fun & Have at it !

Hey guys just wanted to let you know we haven't forgotten any of you. We hope to have you guys set up soon. We talked about having the YEP forum on Get Satisfaction but we want it to be private for Yola Experts. We are looking into a great fit so it will make life easier for everyone.

Thanks for your patience.

Hi David & rest of team,

I have recieved the second email from you and im looking foward to seeing this progress, I have a couple of suggestions, the first is something i will discuss further on the forum and that is 'teaming' ... at present the whole thing is set up for individuals to design the entire site and is mainly pointed towards designers - as we all know a succsefull website needs to be well designed but there is alot more needs doing, SEO, sales driving etc. and i would like to see the chance for poeple with skills in different areas to team up on jobs and create a more complete end result.

The other points i had are more Yola specific, the first is the lack of domains Yola sell, i would like to see a wider range of TLD's - .tv, .info, .eu etc. are all viable options of finding a client a domain that fits there business plan. Alot of the 4 you sell currently are often taken which means seeking something else elsewhere.

The final point is the program will be more effective when the footer can be changed but i hear thats on the way, if that feature could be pushed out to coinside with the start of YEP that would be great.

Anything else that comes to mind i'll save for the forum.

Thanks for listening - Lee.

Thanks I got the second newsletter and email which is a good read, and full of information! Though I didn't see any invitation to the YEP forum. Maybe I missed something??

Thanks,
