I am in the field of early childhood education and would love to have a more interactive web site for the children and families that I we serve. Our parents can currently pay tuition on line, but often have a problem finding that section on our website. I would also like for parents to be able to log on some sort of way and see pictures/videos of their children in their classroom. I would also like to for perspective parents to be able to be able to obtain enrollment forms and see a more eye popping site that is located on most search engines. Our current site is not bad, but it does look boring. I think that making these few changes will help us to become more visible on the internet and help our program to improve our relationship the the current families that we have.

I'd really love to have AughrusPeninsula.com reviewed by a fresh pair of eyes! It's the first site I've ever done, and a bit like Topsy, it has just "growed and growed". It's now the 'official' website for my community, and it receives great feedback. But I can see it growing, and becoming more cumbersome over time. That's happening already. And I can also see a tendency for the number of menu items to grow and grow and get out of control. I want the site to be as user-friendly as possible, and for it to REALLY work in attracting visitors to our area in NW Connemara. And to ensure that it 'works' in an optimum way with things like key words, and our Facebook page.
PLeeeease choose my site....

Well we are a professional football team but the market is very competitive market and with a beautifully presented website we can attract better players and show we really mean business. Its a hard market to make money or even stay a float and especially being based in the Caribbean but with our hard work , dedication and youth development program we can become a good solid club with good foundations.

I started a law firm www.khannalaw.com. We are getting zero clients through our site. People click on our google ad but do not stay on the site for long. It would be nice to get some professional help revamping the site. Plus am not familiar with the tools yola has.

I would absolutely love to have a professional make some suggestions for my website www.snaphappypbc.com This wasn't my first attempt at making my own website, but I do think it has been my best effort. Even then, with limited knowledge of html and coding, it's missing some key ingredients. I would love to strengthen the interaction with the site's viewers by adding a "Book now" button like the one shown on South Sugar Hill's makeover - as well as adding a drop-down menu, which I've tried to do, unsuccessfully. I would also like an attractive alternative to show casing my photography, rather than using flash player app or having photos all over the place. And I've been unable to find a professional (and easily installable) calendar to showcase open/reserved appointment days.

Thank you!

Chelsea

Hi Yola,

What an answer to something that has plagued us for a while. We have a great thing going with our site on Yola but we are inexperienced in the presentation. We believe we have a lot to offer to help others and we have been told if we could just get it done more professionally our impact would improve. I have thought about starting over with professionals, but then stopped right there.
We love our YOLA site and domain name which is secured for 10 years.
All we need is a makeover.
We have the time to invest in this process with you and currently are involved in our facebook makeover which will match the timing of this 'gift' should you select us.
We hope so.

I would love to see what creative ideas you could come up with to improve my website and any business ideas to increase sales. I have no prior training in creating websites so it could be very easy for me to overlook many simple steps and forward thinking ideas. Please assist me to help make my website the best possible!

Thank You for your time,
Craig Gillespie

Will definitely appreciate having one of your experts provide their expertise in updating my website. In starting my entrepreneurial endeavors, this past year; after leaving my full time job and relocating from Houston to San Diego, I am building a platform to help others by integrating a variety of skills from the professional positions shown in my LinkedIn profile. In the process, I have uncovered some very important insights. Finding it is absolutely essential; to reach out to the talent of former colleagues, network with like minded individuals, seek innovative college interns and form new partnerships since I am a sole proprietor without any employees. Also am working diligently to prudently manage my financial and technological resources as I develop the administrative infrastructure.

In employing the above strategies, it has been tremendously energizing and has helped me to accelerate pace. Out of the six initiatives I want to roll out in the next 12 to 16 months, currently have two major projects I am focusing on for third quarter completion in 2013. One is the publishing of an e-book about life lessons from my mom and dad that is targeted to be published this summer. The other one is a financial literacy program focused on changing managing money behaviors, creating, implementing and monitoring a savings and/or debt reduction plan created by the respective participants. My website www.launchinglifestrategies.com is in need of redesign to market the e-book and seek individuals for beta testing the financial program. Having an overhaul of my site will give me an understanding of what it will take to maintain the site and will position me to outline a detailed work description for finding a college intern(s) to assist me in managing my marketing, communication and ongoing maintenance. Will have an immense amount of gratitude for the help your talented staff can provide. Thanks for this opportunity to seek Yola's assistance and have a wonderful rest of the week!! Wishing the best for all of us who are seeking the chance to have a professional review and valued time commitment for a makeover of our respective websites from the Yola staff!!
Thanks,
Jean Harris
Helping others reach for the stars and achieve their dreams!

Hi Laura,
I am a sole trader and literally do everything in my business from cake making, pot washing, PR, marketing, books, delivery....the list is endless! If you were to be kind enough to overhall my website this would take a huge chunk of pressure off me and help make my company more professional. In addition I'd love to add an online shop to my website.
Please please please pick me!! I'd be dedicated and willing to spend as much time as it takes to make it THE BEST!!!

I'd be interested in seeing how much better my site could look, considering the number of writers there are in the marketplace today.
Because of this high volume, a writer has to have everything working in his/her favour, including their website. It is no longer good enough to be a better writer than those around you, and social media plays a big part in selling your work...just as big a part as actually writing each novel

Please consider my site kennelina.com.

New customers constantly tell us that they like our site, but I think it is long over due for a freshen-up. I've started the process a couple times myself, using yola templates, but I don't feel capable of making and executing the right choices on my own. The things I like about my site: the photos. Great pictures of happy dogs is what customers want to see. And I like the simplicity. I don't want a site with 50 pages, macros, and fill-in reservation forms, etc. I just want to give potential customers the basic information about my business, so that they call and make a reservation, or ask to visit. I like that a customer can read my entire site in 5 minutes. Now I just want to make it so that he/she WANTS to stay the 5 minutes. Things I don't like: the tired, blah design, the tiny links to other pages on the site (some customers call and say they didn't know my site had more than one page). If you decide to help me, I will do whatever it takes to work with you to make my site the greatest!

As a business owner I wanted to have a user friendly site that appeals to everyone. I hired a professional web designer and after thousands of dollars I was frustrated with the continued attitude of the designer thinking I was going to be the one to put his kid through college............
Then I found YOLA! An easy to use affordable sitebuilder that I could create my own site the way I wanted it to be and make changes when I wanted. It is so easy to use and affordable. The only problem is that I don't have the technical knowledge to fine tune what I created.

I would be able to commit to the significant investment of time and effort required. I would be available whenever needed and dedicated to learning from Yola, any tips and tricks to tune-up or optimize my site(s). I will welcome with open arms ANY assistance YOLA would like to offer to make www.SantaVisits.info OR www.BunnyVisits.com better sites.

Thank You for this chance. I believe that I am qualified to be the next business owner to receive a professional site makeover! I will hold to the commitment to work with YOLA through this process.
