Default Hi from Olathe, Kansas

Hey,

I am a painting contractor from Olathe, Kansas. I have been painting houses for almost 15 years and have only begun to realize the potential the internet has to benefit my business. This may not be the right place for this, but check out my website at http://odysseypainting.com and let me know what you think.

Thanks,
Doug

P.S. Can someone tell me the correct way to enter anchor text? Can't seem to get it working.

Welcome to the forum.

To hyperlink, highlight the text, click on the world/clip symbol and enter the URL in the pop up box.

You can go to your User CP (upper left) then Edit Signature and do the same thing in the box. That will set your signature/link in all posts.

If that does not make sense, holler and I'll post a pic.

Hola from South Florida.

Your right, the internet does have alot to offer, but it takes work to get people to find you on there. Check out the technology area, and look through the threads for some ideas on this.

Good Luck

Welcome, I was wondering after taking a peak at your web gallery. What are all those white stripes on your exterior repaints?

Doug,

I had to drop back in this thread and say after looking at your website, I really like how you have the pics of the testimonial letters displaying on your website.

I had not seen that before. Most websites have just some permanent ones displaying, or like at my site, I have a section where clients can come back and type into the site directly to make a testimonial.

What is happening more and more are blatantly fake customer testimonials, just like on all the reviews sites and even sites like amazon, where fake reviews are obvious. With time, more and more people will stop trusting those type of references.

Displaying those letters as you have, seems more genuine. Good Work.

My work around on this will be implementing video reviews of my company. I am currently designing a new site and will incorporate this on a video blog. I think this will give me an edge.

Good Luck.

P.S. - so what are those stripes about?
