Hi! As a new and independent published author, I would love to find a way to increase the traffic to my Yola website: http://www.jennifergibson.ca/

Also, is there anyway to provide a "subscribers" feature to my blog? I don't want to make the entire website private, simply one page - I want people to sign up to view the "Chronicles" page so that I can keep track of who is reading it.

Thanks!

Jenn

I would like to get our web site looked at mygreenbabies.com

I am not selling much off the web site at all and need help.

I am a new Mum and need some part time income while looking after my 3 year old and 9 month old.

Can you help?

I have a visual heavy site to encourage runners to sign up for our race at

www.leadkingloop25k.com.

I have a hard time sizing the images and using videos correctly so the site flows well.

Overall I could use the help because our school (the race is a charity for our small 2 room school house) could use the help in the face of budget cuts. Many of our competitors use professional designers because they use town budgets and rec departments to produce their sites. Our town is a bit over 200 people and our school has 30 kids. This event is our biggest fundraiser. It would make a good story of how professional our site could look compared to some others that cost thousands.

Thanks for the help.

I would love to be considered for a website review. I have worked very hard to keep my website up to date and am always tinkering with it to add pages of information and keep special offers up to date. I always feel that I have too much information on the home page, but don't really know how to change it. I absolutely love the banner photo that I chose and I have designed the site around the colours in the banner picture. I love those colours and feel that they suit my business, which is complementary healthcare provision. The green is soothing and calming which hopefully gives the idea that relaxation helps with the stresses that people feel in today's busy lifestyle. I do wonder whether using the same colours makes the site look a bit boring and have no idea what to do to change or complement it! I would love some help with the design of my sales page - I sell vouchers for treatments and I'm never sure whether it is simple to use for the customer. Also, I rarely get feedback from my contact me form and I would love some input and help with how to get that feedback as I don't really have a way of tracking who is visiting my site or contacting them with new special offers. This is my second year in business and the website has been a great way to find new clients but I feel that there is always more that can be done - to me, my site never feels quite finished - please help - it would make such a difference to my business. Thanks for reading. The website is www.holisticblissburton.co.uk and my name is Cathy Fernie.

Our website: www.englishlanguageinstruction.org, could use some fresh ideas. I'm not sure it captures our students' attention. Pictures and color schemes need improvement. We are getting students, but we want to engage them on the site. Thanks so much...Matthew

thank you for giving us this opportunity,
I created my website www.spachezvous.com & i had some difficulties putting things on place, some features that i need were not supported easily in your platform.
I will appreciate that you check it for me especially that it might bring helpful tips to others or even give more options in your platform for the future.
the biggest problem i had was inserting a logo in the baniere.

Regards

Hi,

I have been disappointed after using Yola for free and then purchasing my domain name. I changed templates and now none of my widgets will line up with the correct width. I have tried everything to correct this and would like a free makeover to bring out the true potential and restore my faith in Yola, that I may continue to recommend you to my friends and colleagues.

Hello,

What's the website address for the site you are submitting to be reviewed? I do not see an account associated with the email address you used on this forum. Also, did you try reverting to your old style? All your previous work would be restored if you revert back to your original style.

I would love a professional makeover of my website - thebeadlady.co.uk. It is purely functional and contains information which I would like people to read - but it is not very appealing to look at and it does not really stimulate interest from people. I would love to be able to put some things for sale - such as gift vouchers for jewellery making workshops, and some of my hand crafted jewellery with pay pal buttons - but it is totally beyond what I can do - I would love some help as my site is there - but feels as if it is not complete. Can you please please give me some help, which may make a difference to my business.

Thank you in anticipation

Hi - I would love my site to be considered for advise on how to direct more traffic to my Pilates site. I am aware that I have a lot of information on my first page and as I live in Paris I need to have it in both French and English. This takes a lot of space and I am aware that the page probably looks rather cluttered.

I have been successful in attracting clients but know I could attract more if my site was more professional in presentation.

Thank you for the opportunity to apply for this assistance.
Anne

I'm very hesitant about anyone critiquing http://hpamconsulting.yolasite.com after a great deal of professional work has been established. There's no guarantee makeovers will step up demand. Makeovers may wash away the essence in an effort to clarifying meaning. But, if makeover will reinforce overall structure, design essence and meaning instead of taking away, I will considered tweaks.

Hi, My first website www.moneyrollbeats.net could really use a professional makeover! I have tried several templates styles etc but i am never happy with the outcome. My site needs to be entertaining and functional so that my product and services are clear. The music player/store is the heart of the site and social media plays a major role for me as well.The product i offer is unique (music instrumentals that i produce, & mixing/mastering services)
I really like the Yola platform i'm just not very good at this and could use some help!

thanks!.

I'm not an expert in web design. But, I am a professional. Although, no one stepped up to volunteered to create our first website for free. All of a sudden, some outfit decides to solicit a free makeover service. I am very leery. It has taken extensive effort to create our website. Now, some outfit volunteers free makeovers. What's in it for you?

Please, excuse contrary vibes. www.hpamconsulting.yolasite.com possibly can go for some makeover. After all, we are being touted by commercial designers. Can you makeover without completely tearing down or disfiguring our website?

Lol, Hi

Yes, we are a very tiny small business and welcome any efforts YOLA can provide that can be of benefit to both parties. There are others who would be interested in doing business with YOLA, based on word of mouth.

As you can read, no one is perfect. But, I am an perfectionist to a fault, maybe. www.hpamonsulting.yoladite.com marketing efforts are not perfect. We can use YOLA' s make over efforts with guidance.
