Hi Yola
I am a small accounting firm and have grown in the past year to approx 150 clients in my first year.. Some of my client have found my website but I would like for more traffic to come through as I would like this to be a major form of advertising for me.
The site is a first attempt of building a website and was put together by taking ideas from other sites in the industry- a fresh look at the format would be great

thankyou

Heeeellllp!
I am a mother of 2, and my business is word of mouth at the moment. I am actually very busy from recommendations which is great but still have the 2 kids at home. Everybody goes to my website, www.gyrogems.com to see what my body of work is like. I have NO time to improve and update my site and I desperately NEED to!
I feel that it is my most important marketing tool and I am not using it to its full potential at all. In fact its getting embarrassing!
I know nothing about designing or improving my website and would desperately like some help from Yola.
Thanks so much for your time,
Katherine Kemp

I am a small and developing business where the key in gaining New customers is person to person recommendations. At this time I am having a massive response from my Facebook page www.facebook.com/owlsnesttearoomdiner but my website in comparison is a flat and dull unfinished work www.owlsnesttearoomdiner.com.

I am very aware that my approach to business suits facebook but it does mean the Website is a poor excuse for an advert. I have re-arranged altered and tinkered for hours and patiently waited whilst uploads and pictures are stored and posted but in comparison to other sites I have seen your team produce I am obviously lacking the talent needed to enhance the appeal of my website.

I am just breaking into the local market and the only part of the business to disappoint is the website.

I read your tips and tricks and have tried to import ideas but on screen in my attempts they fail to impress me.

I wish I could afford to spend time or money on the website but sadly with a disabled wife and daughter and two other small children time is not free. I work at the business seven days a week and keeping facebook momentum and the family going takes the rest of my time.

I hope to continue with Yola for many years to come but with the site detracting from the page I am currently more focused on giving the facebook page details out over the website.

I appreciate this is a waffle of an answer but it is the simplest most honest reasoning I can give.

Many thanks for your consideration.

Hi Laura

ON TRACK DRIFT is us we are a adrenalin based experience and we want that enthusiasm and wow from our website! Our customers are impulsive and we find our site is lacking the excitement to keep our clients interested.

I put together the site and have been searching for a design /template that will be easy to maintain yet look and say what we offer - excitement - thrill rides and an experience they will never forget.

I would love to see Yola work their magic on our site and will sing your praises forever more.

Warm regards
Cecilia

Hi Laura
My website (lucindabrant.com) supports my wife's self-publishing efforts. As Lucinda Brant she has a loyal following and sales are building strongly. I do the website and love Yola. However, I'm no webdesign expert and the site has evolved organically. A fresh set of (professional) eyes would be so incredibly helpful. The website is essential to her now blossoming career and we'd be so grateful for a guiding hand at this point.

Desert Diamond Crochet would love for Yola to come poke around! I am currently a Silver member and would love to upgrade to gold but haven't done so just yet as I am still trying to get my site organized. I have only made 1 spontaneous sale through my site. The other couple of sales I made were sending people there from my Facebook page to get them used to coming here instead of Etsy for their purchases.

I just published my first book. It was released on 30 April 2013 and I am working on a serious advertising campaign for that which will direct people to come to my website here on Yola to purchase.

I work full time at a day job and run this business by myself on nights and weekends and get a little intimidated at growing too much to fast and getting out of control but with a potential layoff looming ahead in August 2013, I am really trying to put effort into getting all my sites and advertising in order now before I lose my basic income.

Please come take a look! http://www.ddcrochet.com

Thanks so much!

In 2003 I travelled from the UK to Indonesia where I met and married my wife. We have had 10 years of total happiness with never a fight and I have never known her to be in a bad mood or not smiling. We receive lots of email from guys stating that they are fed up with the selfish type of women that they are currently meeting. I know that there is a market for our service but don't seem to be reaching much of it.

Hi I would love a website make over. I have done all I can with it, I like the colors and energy of my site it's fresh , but I would like it to be a little more professional with smoother colours I would like my navigation to be vertical on the left hand side and bigger for ease of moving through my web pages. I am currently in the process of set up my own Counselling & Psychotherapy office, I got the keys a week ago and my budget is tight so I would really be grateful for any insight and guidance a professional designer could give me, to help me connect with new clients, so I can get across a clear thoughtful message that I want to listen, that I can offer help and support and encourage positive change and growth.

Thank you .

Hi guys

I'd like to have a 'makeover' of our site.
I think it looks ok considering originally I had absolutely no idea of what I was doing.
I do think it could look a little more professional and would be interested in what a professional could do.

My website www.getfitwithjodelle.com is going great, but I started one for my husband's Archery business, and haven't had the time to devote to his, like I would like. I think it would be cool to have a forum on his site where all his Archery clients, buddies, and hunting enthusiasts can chat together about all things Ozarks and hunting. His website is www.ozarksarchery.com and I would love to surprise him with an archery website that blows his mind, and blows up his pocket book with business:) Thanks - Jodelle Fitzwater

I would love a makeover for my website. I have been with Yola for a few years now and crested my own website using their fantastic templates and easy to use formatting. It looks tired now, and a facelift would really help raise the profile of my business. With shaper, clearer images and professional help with content I believe that my newer, improved website could draw more clients to the business.
As a sole trader I wear many hats. I am an aromatherapist who has tried to start a business from scratch and learn as much as I can about implementing trends, IT information, SEO's, key words and sometimes it all just gets too much.
Your help would be invaluable to me right now and I would greatly appreciate this amazing opportunity.
Warm regards,

My website is www.KeyStrokesTS.ca. I am a lone entrepreneur trying to get my business off the ground. I would love a review because I feel there's more that could be done to optimize my site for search engines and drive more potential clients to my site. I have previous website experience but have fallen off the tech wagon and simply don't have the time to reeducate myself AND redesign my site AND run my business! Please help.

Hello,
I make and sell handmade baby hats, shoes and nursery decor items. I also have a full time job as a pastry chef at UMASS Dartmouth. I am trying my best to be able to quit my job and make my business my only job and source of income. I need more sales and visibility to be able to do this. I sell on Etsy and Amazon but would like the majority of my sales to be through my own store. I have not had any sales on Yola yet. Please help me to achieve this. My website is www.sweetlullabiez.com

Thank You,
Rosa Pereira

yes, we would like to be considered for a website make over, we need your help to improve our SEO and to bring more traffic to our site ( Dog-safety.com ), we have a new product that solves an old problem, our biggest problem is that people know they need something to fix what our product was designed to fix but they don't know what to look for and they don't know what our product ( a Fence end spacer) is called. Thanks Robert
