I think is a great idea for those that don't have the professional skills or time to create a website that drives customers to them. I am an artist and depend on people to see the work I do to get more customers. I have loved Yola since I signed up with you all. I would like the chance to have my website made over, and see the traffic generate on a greater scale. I don't have a conventional job as many do and can't afford to have my website professionally done, which is the #1 reason I chose your company in the first place. I was permanently disabled as a member of the Armed Services and money is tight.

Thank you for your great company and an opportunity to help some lucky people, I hope I am one of them.

Great Yola,

Permit me to use this opportunity to appreciate you, few years ago, I start a Humanitarian and Sustainable Social Economic development Organization, and due to my Country of resident (NIGERIA), i was unable to obtain an Online Credit Card to register full website via Yola.com, when i saw free mini website offer from yola, i quickly use it as means of coming alive on world-wide-website.

I dont have any website hosting experience, but i took it as a challenge, and created my organization mini-website:www.uahdp.yolasite.com, however, i wish to have www.uahdp.org as my official website via yola, but, since i create www.uahdp.yolasite.com to start with, my social profession have been intensified, and my commitment to provide humanitarian basic needs, and bring sustainable economic development to the Africa communities, is becoming interesting, and i am now seeing my goal geared on the GREENER WAY of achievement, We still need more partners to make this happen in Africa.

Very BIG Thanks to you all at YOLA.COM
Ugochukwu Paul Ezeka.

I love Yola, I have been working with this website for several years now. I try to tell friends about it when starting a new business about how the service is free and it's a great tool to use and easy to navigate. I've been wanting to update my website for some time now but really don't understand the different levels and aspects of web design, so I continue to utilize Yola. I know I'm in need of an upgrade so I just go in my back office and try to stay up to date on the new Yola features and keep my site looking as professional and attractive as possible. Thanks Yola!

I am not satisfy with may website design but I don't have the ability to improve it, so I hope that your website expert can give me a hand to improve my
website's appearance in order to drive more people to visit my website.

Thank you for giving an opportunity to us and hope that I will be the lucky one.

Thanks,

Stanley

I am a novice, wife of a retired Air Force Fighter Pilot. Our group is made up of retired F84 & F4 Fighter pilots. The website: macdill12-15tfw. Helps to keep everyone updated on each other and reunion information. The reunions are held every other year in various locations hosted by its members.
I would love to have our site chosen as a tribute to these men.

Hello,

I have had my website for almost 2 years. I have put a lot of work into it. I have review many other website and I feel the mine is not professional enough.

I have paid for Google Adwords and have not gotten one order from it. I have done my own advertisements through passing out business cards and sending emails and have not gotten one order from it. I have even done some vendor shows and sold very little. I have done better doing home party, but that is not what I want to do. I want to work from home. I want a professional website that will attract many customers.

I have received many emails from companies who want me to pay them to get my website ranked first on Google and first on the Orgainic Page. I cannot afford them. I just need some help from Yola. I do not know if my description, keywords and alternative keywords are entered correctly.

Each of those companies keep telling me that I do not have the right Keywords, SEO, No Back Link, Submission to Search Engines.

I am commitment. I have put a lot of time into my website and I know it will take a lot more time to get it the way it should be. There is a lot of competition in selling jewelry and I am been told that my jewelry is very nice and the prices are good. I just need more people to see them. I need a website makeover PLEASE!

Yola has made it easy for me to build a website with lots of content, and to keep updating and developing it.

Within a year, and without employing anyone for "search engine optimisation", my site has risen to first or second place on page one of the organic search results for relevant terms in a Google search. It helps that my service is a fairly niche market.

While I am happy with the content, and find that people comment favourably on my site, I do feel that there is scope to improve design considerations and add to the overall impact. I have opted for a clean and simple look, but I am not a design professional.

Hi, and thank you so much for this opportunity. At Bubbles, Baubles & Wicks LLC we make all natural bath and body products, candles, and jewelry. We cater to two different demographics because we are vendors for Spooky Empire's Ultimate Horror Weekends.
We've found that our regular customers do not like the products we sell at the Horror Conventions, and vice versa. Our regular website is http://bubblesbaublesandwicks.com/ our Dark Side is http://bubblesbaubleswicksllc.yolasit.... We know that our site's both need work. Please help us, you are our Obi Wan!

Well, I believe I might be the only attorney using Yola and I always can use constructive suggestions to be better. I chose the grunge display because I was rather bored by the traditional templates....but I have received comments from attorneys out of state that clearly my website is intended for personal referrals. Now that's an interesting comment.
I am thinking I should look a bit more business-like but can't find a template that works quite right. Suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
Thank you for making such a great user-friendly interface. It's been a life saver.

The prices you are offering to add a shopping cart to world of trade website is to expensive and I have had offers to change my site. I need a online cart for the site at a cheaper rate for my customers and clients and make it easier for them to shop with the business.

Why do I need help? well this is a loaded question with no clear answer....but here goes....

as a "senior" lady, who is a little naive in the creation and popularity of website advertising, I would be delighted in some assistance.....

I have a couple of sites for my new retirement business....one I have upgraded to gold and the other is the free site.....I do not see the difference between having free or gold.....they have received equal (or close to equal) number of views, yet I am paying $150 for one....this I totally don't understand.....

So, please help me in capturing more clicks, enticing a larger audience....help me beautify and simplify my site....

let's do the one I am paying for....http://www.angelswhisper.ca/
and let's see what happens.

Thank you for this opportunity

Hello!

I started my own cake baking and decorating business a few years ago and I soon realised that having my own website to showcase my products was a must. After a bit of googling I came across Yola and I got started in creating my website straight away. Setting up my website with Yola was made simple by the various tools and guides available. After nearly 3 years, I would love to update my site, and have tried reading various books related to website development but I really don’t know where to start! My home business is growing and most of my time is spent in the kitchen so unfortunately I just haven’t had the chance to re-invent my website. To have the opportunity to receive a website makeover would be incredible! I have spent a lot of time and effort taking photos that look professional as I feel this is one of the most important parts of my site, and I would now like to look into setting up an online shopping cart but I feel that I need some guidance on this. I am so passionate about what I do, and I want this to be reflected in my website- please help me, I am willing and excited to learn more!

Yola, Yola, always making things better and offering great opportunities. I made a complete website on yola with it's design and tools and I am proud of what I have done with my site. But I need a more professional looking site for my clients. I do many things for others including cooking, laundry, and cleaning for the sick or elderly at no charge. I do not have the time, money, or knowledge to upgrade my site. If my site was professionally remade then I would find more people to assist with everyday living who need these free services. I maybe able to add somethings and take away what is not needed on my site. I am non profit yet I am not for profit.. All that I offer is from my pockets and my family pockets. All that's offered are basically free to the public. This would be a great help to have my site remade professionally..
