I must really like torture after reading all of the negatives for the last review.
But mine only has a good looking guy on it.(It`s me!!!)
Nikole, I know you already gave me your feedback, sorry for running it again.
I appreciate everyone`s honesty!!

    Web site looks nice and I like it and your product idea seems good too.  I think you need to consider a couple of things that should be done for all web sites.

    Bert,  Thanks for the input.  I guess I don`t know the right avenue for selling on the web.  If you hae suggestions, that is why I am here.  We do offer dircet sales on our website, however they are phone orders only.
    I am going to work on doing some of the stuff you suggested in the mean time and I welcome any of your advise on selling on the web.  We do have them on ebay and a google search brings up the ebay and our website.
    Thanks again, Trent

    Trent - have you considered using PayPal?   I`m still in the process of building our website, so we`re starting with PayPal (www.paypal.com</A>) and if future sales growth justifies it, then we`ll move to a more robust solution -- something like Quickbooks that will easily interface with our Quickbooks accounting software.Your site is very clean, attractive -- good format and good choice in color scheme (bright, bold) ... I think this has the makings of a good business venture!!  jimnewman752007-6-29 16:25:31

    I would suggest unique titles and keywords in your meta tags for each page.Also, link exchanges with related sites would help, such as pick-up sites, tool sites, etc, to generate more traffic.Otherwise, nice looking site and easy to navigate.

    I`d think twice about using paypal as a payment processor.  You cannot edit the checkout page.I use PayPal - why would I want to edit the checkout page?

    How is Google Checkout different from PayPal?   I took a quick look at it and it seems no better than PayPal -- and PayPal offers an array of processing tools like the Virtual Terminal.And what do you mean by "you can`t edit the checkout page"?  The checkout page on PayPal is "customized" to the point of having your company name in the header of the page without giving the customer the feel of "PayPal".
