Anybody interested in such a thing ?

I do not have one yet but if there is such a demand I am willing to have one done.

Just a little project I had in mind for those who want to get started on a website

E-mail me if you need more information

Hi Justin,

Would this be a guide on how you can create your own lawn care business website?

I'd love to see you post it.

Or even a video.. similar to GopherHaul...

What kind of software do you use to make GopherHaul anyways ?

I am looking forwards to seeing it!

I have used a lot of different software but right now I am playing with adobe's premiere.

You can make them with simple microsoft video editing too.

I am sorry Justin, I totally missed this post!

That is very good! We constantly see new lawn care business owners needing help on how to upload files. I bet you will be making mention to this video a lot in the future when others are looking for ways to do this.

Will you be making any more videos?

Video was helpful...but it might still require some explanation of FTP etc. for those that aren't familiar with it.

Very good. I think these videos definitely are helpful.

You know what would be neat too. Showing the process of downloading one of the free web templates from here and how to unzip it and upload it and maybe make a few simple page edits or something like that. That a topic asked quite often.

I was thinking of that the other day. I might do one pretty soon since I only have a 30 day trial on my software

I don't know if that would be too much to do, maybe it could be broken down into a couple of segments. I am not sure. But it would be helpful I think at least.

I finally fixed the voice so I'll be adding a video shortly how to upload a template to a website

I think this video link should be pinned on the forum http://www.gophergraphics.com/forum/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif http://www.gophergraphics.com/forum/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif

I think they need to be mpg or mov?

I just made a blog about it too and directed everyone here to see your movies. Great job Justin!

Out of curiousity, if you want to edit the templates in Dreameweaver, can you only edit the code, or can you do it graphically?

Both...

You can choose to do both.. if you need to fix a button let's say.. well you can go in the code and change it

Youtube video coming up

What video file formats can I upload?



YouTube accepts a wide range of video file formats such as .WMV, .AVI, .MOV and .MPG transferred from most digital cameras, camcorders and mobile phones.

We've found that files converted from .wmv to one of the other formats our webpage accepts generally have a lower playback quality than other file formats. If you have your source video in a format other than a .wmv file, you may want to encode directly to MPEG4 (DivX, Xvid, SVQ3) at 640x480 resolution, with 64k Mono MP3 Audio. If you have a source .wmv in high bitrate and larger resolution you may want to convert to MPEG4 at full resolution and then resizing to 320x240 using a high quality resizing algorithm - this can help reduce the number of artifacts you end up with.
