Even if you ARE an amatuer web designer (I know I am), get rif of them, don't tell them off the bat, make them think your at least large enough to hire a real web-designer, they'llbe more likely to trust you with their money.

Diane,



I agree with Patrick, he has a lot of great suggestions...



This is my 2 cents worth: Check out your competion. What are they doing? How do their sites look, feel? You want to make yourself look as LARGE as possible. check out AMAZON and EBAY, see how they look like LARGE COMPANIES by by the way their sites look? It's all in the design.



As an exercise, save AMAZONS home page, or any page that you think has great layout and interface, and open it in your HTML editor. Now, plug in your own information. Create small graphics that load quickly. Have fun! Eventually, you will come into your own design style.



Read everything you can on meta tags and search engines.



Keep at it and your web site is bound to just get better over time.



Godd luck,



Thad w
