Les,

I am impressed by your design and the ease of navigation...

As for the advertising company...I'd write immediately to the BB Bureau
they have an on-line branch which handles such discrepancies:

As far as promoting your site, seems as if it's doing a very good job
of promoting itself...but if you felt the need to up your numbers even
more by buying banners, then I'd look into power promotion on a business
level, like the kind they offer here at deadlock…at least you get proven
results that way.

Certainly if your looking to make an impact in the world of + sizes it
would behoove you to advertise in the areas that most influence this
group of individuals (again target marketing is everything). Try, adding
such tips as shopping links (don't know if there are on-line stores specializing
in plus sizes, but certainly Spiegel.com should). Also, perhaps a newsletter or
monthly articles written by 'successful' BBW (& men) could offer insights
into the secrets behind their successes, while enhancing levels of self-esteem
amongst your followers.

Realize there are a number of issues at work here, health, media influences,
psychological ramifications, etc., as the issue of acceptance of ourselves
for 'who' we are vs. 'what we look like' has become a universal conundrum, and
should be of interest to people regardless of their gender, race, creed or size…

Best of Luck,
Deb
