I haven't asked a question in several days, so here goes: Do all of you guys have websites? I have one that's "under construction" (been that way for a while now). :(
I would like to see links to some and I'll admit it now: I'm looking for ideas. Now I'm not looking to copy anybody's style but I might "borrow" :rolleyes: some ideas because I'm in a creative rut. Any particular design styles that you guys suggest? I am sticking mostly to the K.I.S.S. philosophy.......

Here's mine (www.smg-computers.com) :)

It's pretty simple if you ignore the expanding navigation menu. The design part didn't take too long, but i've spent probably days changing the content until I was happy with it. I also get alot of my business through my website, so get yours up and running ASAP.

Thanks Simmy,

I like it. Clean, uncluttered, nice! This is what I'm shooting for, simple with not a lot of "bells and whistles". I was thinking of learning flash so that I could add some. But now, I think that I'll just keep it nice and simple.

I too was looking for ideas and I like the SMG. Short, sweet and simple. Gives me plenty of ideas too.

I am working on a new site for a side project / second company. Me and a couple friends will be doing this one together, mostly programming for small businesses.

Thats what it looks like so far. It has some information, but I am not done filling it in.

Another "Under Construction" for the last 2 or 3 years or so. Since I do pretty much only local business and word of mouth has kept me fairly busy I have had no real impetus to fine tune it.

Any aspiring web designers want to use it to learn on?

Thanks for the kind words :)

Looks good gregg. How long did it take to design that?

I did that in about a full day. Some of the javascript took another day to get working right.

His might be fancier but yours takes a lot less time to load. Both good sites that serve their purpose well.

Hi Sorry for the delay Bryce, i was having unexpected issues with my forum username and password..

They seem to have been solved now.

Well, regarding the SEO its all a self taught process, while ofcourse trying to learn from the best *hint* ; we service basically in melbourne but our office is located in hawthorn.

Do you find your DDR2/Flash Drive offer brings in more customers? How long have you been running this offer?

Well it certainly does help, i've noticed people go "AHH really" when i mention of my special offers to them..

And they seem to not have any reluctance fixing a time for appointment. But i will monitor my website stats closely..

You can actually monitor the click thru rate using google analytics, which tells you how many cliks a particular link has recieved.. and the offers seem to be the higest clicked followed by the contact page. :D

I don't actually have a repair website just the hosting site shown in the sig. I tend to get alot more customers by word of mouth. Havn't seen any real turnover using a website for local repair. I find it better to just list yourself in google maps and so forth.
