Default Site Samples online now

I worked a little this morning and installed some sample sites/templates. They are not industry specific but there are 14 different samples to look at and they are not wordpress sites.

This page has a link to all the samples.

A few of them are not for lawn care but on the other hand what kind of image do you want to present?

When you look at a design you have to look beyond the content and look at the design. For instance with a few changes of the content #8 would also make a good lawn care site. So would #1.

Change a few photos and change some colors around and you have a great looking site.

There is a 4 page minimum.

Pages 1-5 $70 each
Pages 6-10 $60 each
Pages 10 and up Call for Quote.

Little 5 page mini site for smart phones around $75 (Working on a demo for that, should be online tomorrow evening.)

So with this, your site would be something like www.bigjimslawncare.com and the mobile version would be mobi.bigjimslawncare.com no sense is buying the .mobi domain when you can make a subdomain.

This is NOT for ecommerce sites or those pages where you have to scroll for a week to get to the bottom of. Average page is anywhere between 300 and 500 words with some pages nearing 1k. There are other page types that fall under the multiple page category like the ones you see with multiple tabs etc.

I think you are looking for a little more advanced then a program like wix.com can do. To have a pop out picture you need to look at wordpress or joomla with a template you can use. you would need php or java scripting to do it. Otherwise you would have to do the code yourself.

You mean like this page?

http://xtremeseoconsulting.com/ss15/...o_gallery.html

Not exactly the same but it is a photo gallery.

The problem with most, if not all, of the free website builders is that they have limits placed on them. My very first site was a google site and it was pretty good for what it was but it too had it's limits. For instance, I could not put a paypal button on the site at all as they wanted you to use Google checkout.

You have to use their templates and there is no way to manipulate the HTML code if you need to on most of them.

Wix in particular I have a problem with because of the crap they put in front of your web site that slows down the loading.

Ok the Mobile is available now

http://xtremeseoconsulting.com/ss15/mobile1

http://xtremeseoconsulting.com/ss15/mobile2

Check it out from your phones.

Nothing real fancy, just formatted for the mobile phone screen. Working on a script that will take you to the mobile version automatically if you are on a phone or the full site from a computer.....
