I mentioned before some possible changes to Tylonproducts, which would make it a more professional place focusing more on the brand, name and products. I would like to include you- all of my supporters, in this big change I am planning.
The Home page I want to be super catchy, different, showcasing the products right there- all the different kinds of stuff I do. Seeing now I will be collaborating and affiliating with some local companies- I would like to incorporate them as well. As much as I ADORE this theme- I worry it will not be as professional as I need. I would like an area in my products to showcase clients, details on their project (like a form), and offer alternative photos in a nice, orderly fashion as a part of the site.
Seeing I enjoy hearing from all of you- I would like to move the postings over to the BLOG area of the new site. Perhaps I will trial it out and make a blog.tylonproducts.com if the database entries can convert. I enjoy feedback on new products and also receiving your valuable ideas and advice as well.
I would like to allow the option on the new site to have a mini store. While ETSY and Storenvy (trying that out perhaps) sounds like fun- I think the option to have my own store would be a benefit in the future.
Seeing I will also this year be selling my products at local events- I would like to offer an area for a calendar/ events section.
I am going to also post the services I do on Tylonproducts- like design and everything, however I am going to limit it towards small businesses. I will not go too in depth with this and that, I want the photos of what I do to tell the story.
I am in debate on how I want to lay out the site. So far I have as a rough:
- Featured slider- think pinterest- but all different products
- About Us & what we do
- Our Product Promise
- Quality Materials
- 100% hand made
- 100% made in USA
- Become a Fan
- Our Clients
- Plush Animal & Soft Sculpture
- Metal Art
- Custom Work
- Design (make it based towards helping small businesses)
I want this site to be out of the ordinary, creative- walking that fine line between professional but also fun. If I hand out a business card at a craft fair, I want them to check out my site and be like WOW! Look at all of these different, cool, unique things!
I will be making my own business cards for these events as well.
