I have been with Yola for a few years now and did my own website using their templates and formatting. It looks amateurish now and a professional look with a easier to use site would really help the profile of my business. With a one person operation there are just not enough hours in the day to devote to redesigning it.

Peace & Blessings,

I believe my site should be selected because I serve and volunteer my services to schools, non-profit organizations, and those with limited funds. What do I do? I am a Mobile DJ, Photoshow presenter, and Online Radio Announcer. During the day I teach and I share my Media experience to my class and colleagues. The number one question..."Why is your site so,NOT YOU!?". My answer, knowledge, time, and $$ to get it done. With a Site that can reflect me, I can help serve more people and attract customers who can afford a top DJ/Photoshow presenter!

Hello Yola,
I am a dance instructor in Vancouver bc and I just start my company last year and struggling to get new students. I have been working with yola builder since April 2012. i learned how to make the used of seo a bit but I am not even close to be professional at doing a website. I would love to have a review + tips of my website so it can grow and become more awesome! Thank you for giving us this opportunity, I think it's very graceful of you. Good luck everyone!

Hi Yola,

Thanks for the great idea. I would love Yola to review and makeover my site. I have a unique service in my area in the pet services industry. There are dog walkers then there is www.sweatydogfitnesscompany.ca. My clients own high energy breed dogs and I take them for runs ranging from 5Km to 20Km. This business is my calling and I know it will eventually produce enough revenue to provide a better life for my family. I have put a lot of time into this business/website but feel my efforts have not been rewarded by the search engines. I see some very static sites and sites that really shouldn't be listed through the search terms "dog walking", "dog walkers" etc. that are higher than me. I have made it to page two on google, for example, but feel by this time I should be on page one. I update my site on a regular basis and thought it would lead me to at page one. Can't figure it out though.
I believe your review and makeover could help push me to the top and help bring success and happiness to my family sooner rather than later.

sincerely,

Rob MacKay

Well, I love my business and my website represents it online. But for some reason I have not been able to attract viewers to buy my trips online and often think it has something to do with how I designed it. It's a small business so I don't have the time or money for a redesign or good SEO, so a pro tweaking it and improving it would be absolutely awesome. If that were to happen, I think I'd cry. Well, here it goes. I might be lucky after all. www.my-adventuretours.com

Thanks!

I feel that I am still in the start-up phase of my business. I am trying to make a living at providing counselling services, but it is hard to continually generate new contacts. I need a web page that will speak to people, because often that is the only chance I get to make an impression. I really could use some help, on a shoe-string budget..

I am a 2014 Olympic Hopeful for Bobsled, and would LOVE a facelift for my website. Primarily I use it so that people can follow my journey. I also use it to encourage sponsorship so I can focus on training. Eventually I would like to get involved with different Women in Sports foundation to encourage female athletes to stay involved in sports to teach organization, positive body image, and problem solving. It would be great to have a little help to boost my website: www.theblueunitard.yolasite.com

Hi, I work with small start up businesses who usually can ill afford very pay much for what i do. I am retired and if I weren't, I could not afford to help those that I do.

I am a one man operation and with the knowledge I have, I try and share it with those that I can who are start ups or struggling small companies. I always tell them my website is on Yola and suggest that they use your web services. so far I don't believe anyone has yet.

Since I know very little about web page design, I have been very pleased with the ease I have had putting information on the website. However, I know it does not look very professional and I wish that it had more pizzazz. I know that if your designers could take some time with it, the website could look a great deal more professional.

Thank you
Robert Ferguson

Hi Yola,

We're a small online retailer that sells kids clothing and growing rapidly in just a few months, with the help of Yola Online Store. But the problem is, most of our customer reach us through Facebook instead of ordering directly in our webpage.

Professional make-over to our website is very much appreciated, because it can improve customer shopping experience through our webpage:

Thank you!

Cheers,

Yuni

Hi Yola Team, I run a small brokerage in Financial services and I have tried my best to make my website look professional but still I feel its not upto the mark because (1) Lack of Imagination (2) not able to use full potential of Yola framework. would you be kind enough to give it a fresh professional look.
I love to be with Yola because this gives me Total flexibility of changing topics and write blog without having a problem of writing codes and other complicated stuff and I see my other friends dealing with that issue everyday and relying on IT team to make changes.
Kind Regards

Dear Yola Team,

I would love to have my Phil Coffee websites to look even more attractive and professional www.philscoffeecompany.com is there any suggestion that you could give or help out with? Designing wasn't my strength so the design template was not as easy to adjust for me. Any easier way to manage update it like blog messages using just mobile phone? Thanks :) Much appreciated !!

Best Regards,
Phil Coffee

I would love for the Yola team to review & make recommendations to improve my website. I've been a loyal Yola customer for several years now. I love Yola, it is super easy to use, was easy to get the search engines to pull up with keywords. I would be grateful for a makeover though, always ready to change & update as needed. I'm confident with some expert advise that my website could be awesome before the end of 2013.

I would love expert advice on www.markstutoring.com
I have built the website the best I could but I am sure I am missing something! I'm trying hard to help my husbands business grow. He enjoys helping people and I love seeing him happy! Tutoring is very competitive so any helpful advice would be great. I'm all ears!

I work in the Natural Health field but offer a number of different modalities. I can't call myself any single type of practitioner so I'm more an artisan. How do I create a website for an artisan??? How do I make it unique???

Hi
I would love a website make-over. We are a community based coffee farmers in one of the primitive and remotest parts in the world and I think my website could use some help. I need the good coffee buyers for both parchment and green bean to help purchase them. This will surely help change our standard of living for a better. The coffee is organically grown no fertilizer, pesticides, weedicides, etc are added. This is in the tropics of the South Pacific at the northern tip of Australia Thanks a lot!

Dear Yola,

I would like some more creative insight into my website. I've loved my Yola account and all the features from having an account. www.getitrite.co.za

Just I'm a bit lacking in the creative department. It's no use having all these features but the creative juices are lacking. It's an exciting time in my business, we are expanding and being asked to collaborate with corporates and non-profit organisations. Thus I want to up my game and would love you to pimp-up my site!

Pick us pick us!!

This website is intended for my business, so to get a make over would be so wonderful, I can not afford a professional, due to the costs involved in building an eCommerce website. In order to get a designation for Visa and MasterCard there are so many compliance issues to be able to have that ability, I'm really struggling with that as well as how to be visible on the Internet, sending traffic to my eCommerce website. www.yaceteyac.ca

Hi there,

I have not only created one site but many with professional domains for friends and colleagues. I adore Yola and have used it for 5 years now. We are currently in the process of getting our book published which will be a photographic, travel and cooking inspired travels book indigenous to southern africa. I want you to give me a fresh idea and makeover for this site as it will be an international published book published in USA and shipped to Africa and all over. The book's name is Rods, Pots Pictures and the domain www.rodspotspictures.com. I have designed a simple site for it but want to give it a boost and are so interested in having your fresh ideas as this site needs to be attractive and a travelling feel of Southern Africa. My other sites will be linked to this site. My other main sites are www.catfishjoeproductions.com, www.flyfishingsouthafrica.com, www.joelategan.com and www.kgalagadiphotography.com. As you can see I spend ALOT of time on Yola and I have marketed Yola in South Africa to all I know. I look forward to see what you have to say and hopefully be a lucky one in having a makeover.

Thanks for your great support over the years in making my business successfull.

Best Regards,
Hardus Lategan

Hi Yola great supporters.
I am a visual artist and I want to believe that my work is quite exceptional.
I offer commisioned conceptual portraits but unfortunately with not any success yet.
My Yola site www.smyrnios.com is a bit older than a year and it hasn't got
as many visitors as I was expected. Of course, I haven't advertised
enough to promote it, as I cannot afford to pay regularly for any ads.
I also believe that the style I have chosen is not the best for the kind of my business, (there weren't so many better choices at that time), so I would be delighted to get a make over. I really appreciate your expertise.
Best regards
Nicholas Smyrnios

Hi Yola Team,
I have been amazed at what I have learnt from not knowing anything at all about websites, much less building them, to creating my own website from scratch, to designing my own brand. I thank Yola for enabling me to do the unexpected.
I recognise that I am constantly learning, and I would be ever so greatful for assistance from the experts at Yola to take my website to the next level.
I run a Casting Agency that I formulated and run single handed. My website is looked at by many professionals in the industry but I would like to make an impact with my welcome age and the photos that I have uploaded.
Being a single mum of two teenagers, hopefully future entrepreneurs!, I want to lead by example and show professionalism in all that I do, and stand for. My business being the face of one of, hopefully, many crreations.
I appreciate your consideration.

My website need a free review, instead of receiving sales, I getting cobwebs. Instead of site visits, my site seems to have the close sign up.
Instead of helping customers with online gift ideas, I'm like last years news.
Please help. New ideas, new eyes, new design, fresh looks.
