Building Out A Mini Site

I haven’t started re-designing yet, a site about unique tattoos and body art, but I am really excited about how it’s going to look when finished because I received the design template last night. I know the age old (and proven theory) is that design doesn’t matter when it comes to generating revenue, but I am going to put the theory to a test.

One of the nice things about working for myself is that if a fun project comes up, I can put other things on the back burner for a day. I have quite a bit of other development work to do, but it’s always fun to work on a fresh project. My interest in re-designing and re-launching the site will help me stay focused and hopefully complete the new site by the end of the day.

When you have a chance, please check out to see the “before site,” and when the re-design is finished, I would love your feedback on the look, layout, and design. I will also be happy to report how the site is doing in a few weeks.

  1. Hi,
    That is good looking minisite. However I think you have missed one important point. There shouldn’t be scroll on minisite. Visitors will scroll down the page and will leave the site without clicking ads. Also all your ads are on first (upper) part of site. In my opinion you should shuffle it over the page, one on top one on bottom and one on sidebar.

      Thanks for the feedback. That is the “before” mini-site. I have a completely new design for the new one, which I hope to publish later on today.

  2. Hi Elliot,

    I like that you set up “something” with content to feed the spiders. I see it’s already got a PR1. I like to launch sites and twist and tweak as I go. Looking forward to your new design.
