With the posting of this blog comes the opening of the Website!!
The amazing team at Webber Design has been working on this website over the Summer and I am a very happy customer. They listen to everything I have to say, and if I have a difficult question, they research it first and provide me with informative answers. From what I have seen, they seem to be a team who are invested in learning things for themselves too, so although they are all experts in web and graphic design and SEO already, I can see that they have had to acquire a couple of new skills in order to get my website to work smoothly. Instead of fobbing me off and saying ‘we can’t do that’ or offering an alternative I wouldn’t have been happy with, they have used it as an opportunity to expand their skills base. I do really feel that they have invested in me and my company. Not only did they design my website but they also designed flyers and my new business card and organised a photo shoot for pics of me for the website – Rhys the owner of Webber Design is also a professional photographer.
I have spent the last week and a half uploading all the pics of the items and descriptions of each item to my shop and making sure you all have enough information to make the right decisions on your first toy purchase with me. Remember though, that the main reason I have started this company is so buyers of my ‘wares’ can be fully informed on their purchases and the website can only help so much. This is why my primary services are my consultations and soirees – an opportunity for me to bring these toys to you so you know exactly what you are buying before you commit to it.
My website is thatsthespot.co.uk and I need as many of you as possible to check it out and tell me what you think of it. I want it to be as informative and user friendly as possible so I encourage feedback and constructive criticism. You can either email me this feedback on firstname.lastname@example.org or fill in the contact form on the website. This calls for all the pedantics!
Being a Welsh speaker, the website is available in Welsh too, which has meant the website has taken a little longer to build. I’r siaradwyr Cymraeg, mae e’n bwysig i fi gwybod os yr rydych chi gyd yn hapus efo’r gwefan Cymraeg. Yn anffodus, mae ‘na cwpl o lefydd ar y wefan sydd yn Saesneg yn unig, fel y siop a’r blog. Dwi’n defnyddio WordPress i’r blog a mae’r ‘plugins’ Cymraeg yn ddrud iawn! Gyda’r siop, mae’n mynd i gymryd lot o amser ac arian i gyfieuthu’r holl siop. Hefyd, does ‘na ddim gwefan fel hyn ar-lein yn y Gymraeg neu gwasanaeth fel hyn yn y Gymraeg, felly byddai’n gobeithio bod y faith fod rhywbeth fel hyn ar gael i siaradwyr Cymraeg yn ddigon dda i ddechrau ‘da?! Mae’n gwych i ni gyd cael y cyfle i ddefnyddio ein iaith pob cyfle J Hoffwn buddsoddi mewn i wneud y gwefan yn hollol ddwyieithog rhywbryd yn y dyfodol, ond yn gyntaf, dwi angen gwybod pa fath o alw sy ‘na o’r siaradwyr Gymraeg. Felly adborth adborth adborth os gwelwch yn dda!
I will constantly be updating the website over the next few months – ironing out any creases and using your feedback to make it better. I will add some new pages with advice and information, but for now, the best way to get advice and information is to book me in for a consultation or a soiree! Who am I kidding; this will always be the best way to get the best advice and information! Remember, if you book me in before the end of October for a soireé, the hostess will receive 25% off her purchases and the guests will receive 15% off (in exchange for feedback and the fact that I am still perfecting my skills) and if you book me in for a consultation I will come to you for free and also give you 15% off any purchases you make.
After October, the hostess will still get 20% off but I will not be able to offer a discount to the guests.
So please to check out the website and tell me what you think! I can accept comments on here, on Twitter and on Facebook.
