What is all on your website to help potential customers?
1. I have a skype link
2. I have a online chat.
3. Photo gallery
4. A page of what services I offer..
5. A page to send a estimate request..

For current clients..
1.. Online billing system where I give the customers a login/password so they can view there invoices, payments ad history..
2.. Online support system
3.. a Survey system which everyone really liked..
I did have a client calendar, but have since lost the database in my last server upgrade..

The billing system worked great for those of who wanted to use it over paper invoices..
No one used the support system (a good thing)

Sorry if some of this is missing letters, but my daughter like to use my laptop with sticky fingers...

1. I have a skype link
2. I have a online chat.

Those are two additional features I don't see often. Do you find that customers use them?

What do you find is the benefit to having those services on your site?

So far, there is no benefit... I have yet to use either one other than for testing..

I thought about adding a link to my facebook and myspace pages on my website, but my wife thought it was tacky. What are your though and experiences with this.

I just bought a second domain name to point at my site
www.procutturfmanagement.com
www.theprocut.com
this way I could have a shorter e-mail address

I applied for google adsense and they turned me down
said my site was hard to navigate and there were pop ups
I think they are just trying to keep me down. lol

That is a very interesting question and it does make you wonder if there are some technologies that are worthwhile to utilize while others aren't.

The online chat thing intrigues me because I would figure if you have that on your site, a visitor is going to expect that someone is manning it? Do you feel that way too or no?

I have an information page for the products we use, couple of reasons it allows me a new page with different key words for the search engine and allows clients to see what we use, an equipment page and believe it or not this brought in a few jobs last year, mainly wood chipping.

There is a Blog, it is spelled Bolg for some reason Soho will not hyperlink properly if I spell it properly.

Latest News, this gives me a chance to tell prospects what we are doing, i.e. spring spraying etc.

Other than that, just the basic's
