My New Site Is Up And Running!


Wahoo...my new website is up and running at the original address http://www.aaqualitypainting.com Check it out and tell me what you think. I'm extremely pleased with the overall look and feel of the site......and not to mention all the content. There will be more customer testimonials on there soon and the logo is going to be a little different, so that will change some. Other than that the site is done and ready to rock.

I usually don't put my name out there for other companies, but I don't mind being an advocate of companies that offer good service and treat me good as a customer. Footbridgemedia.com has done all of this and more, but the best part is they did it all at a very economical price. There are sure to be some who can't afford or don't want to pay someone else to do their sites...I was one until recently, but I would honestly say to seriously consider them for other contractors on this site. Unless you have an enormous budget and can afford whatever you want..you might still want to consider them.

Nice job! I may try a site again someday. Note total lack of commitment.

Re: My New Site Is Up And Running!


The site looks GREAT!

More proof of why I keep recommending FOOTBRIDGE MEDIA

Yes, they are a sponsor of this site but I they have also proven themselves over and over again at a good price.

AA: Did you get the one time price or did you sign up for the monthly deal too?

AA .. I would recommend getting a better copy of your logo on the site. Just a thought.

Re: My New Site Is Up And Running!


No, I signed up for the monthly deal as well....how can you beat having hosting, email, and an automated newsletter service each and every month for sixty some dollars? ***sorry, maybe it's thirty something....I forget it was so cheap.

Like I said, I don't usually brag for anyone else but my own company, but when you end up with something so great, with awesome on-going support, what more can you say? This isn't spam at all...I shopped my arse off looking for a better deal...boy was I silly.

EDIT: Logo is being changed by the company doing all my signs, biz cards, and t-shirts....update on that soon.

Re: My New Site Is Up And Running!


Oh hey, I noticed when your in the site, you can't get back to the home page from the other pages, there's no home button or logo to click that brings you to the home page
You have to use your browser to back track
You might want to have FB remedy that

Re: My New Site Is Up And Running!


I noticed that too....there is the link at the very bottom where it says AA Quality Painting & Pressure Washing LLC. There are a couple of small things that aren't perfect as of just yet, but with the on-going maintenance program it's no worry. I can have anything changed or fixed at any time...and that's a nice benefit.

Re: My New Site Is Up And Running!


Yes, they sure do. If you look at mine, the back priming article is one I wrote. They seamlessly integrated some of the content from the old site into the new one. You can also add your own personal touch to the newsletter each month, which they recommend you do. You get one for print that you can mail, and the e-mail newsletter can be set to full auto....It's up to you what you want to do with it. They also update my site for me monthly with news and articles and other content...and I can have things adjusted as need be at any time.

Re: My New Site Is Up And Running!


Nice site AA... however I noticed a few errors on your Frequently Asked Questions Page...

"Can you repair holes in drywall and fix water stains"

"With water comes mold.. what do you do about mold"

Something doesnt seem right with those questions....

Also on another page it says something about California... you live in Florida right?

I would proof read your site over and over... you want it to be perfect for your potential customers.

That company does a good job...

Re: My New Site Is Up And Running!


Yes, I've found those. I have a list of a few minor things that still need tweaking, and like I said, there are a few other small items and/or updates that will be done, but for the most part it's in it's complete form. (minus corrections) I tried to catch all of them earlier while I was on the phone with them, but it's hard to see them all in a short period. I think I have finally read all of the content that is on there within the last hour or so.

I'm very excited to have had the opportunity to do this. Thanks for the comments!

Re: My New Site Is Up And Running!


Do this take your pages and put them in 'SPELL CHECK" option IESPELL works great. I would make your w/designer also misspell allot of words in your source in the META HTTP section. Say like this. Constructun,const,constuction,remodul,ect you get the picture.

Very good advice..We all miss spell but you still want them to visit your site.
