    Anyone intersted in doing link swaps? Obviously it would be better if the items are relevant to what we sell!

    I am a mum to 3 girls and am currently trying to get my business off the ground while staying at home with my youngest daughter.

    Looking forward to any useful tips hints and advice!

    Thanks

    Julie.

    Hi Julie - we have sent you a couple of private messages, so please check your inbox. We would be interested in a link swap.

    Hi All

    I am Colin and I run a company called fire training videos - I've been in business since 1988 and I am a tv/video/multimedia/graphics producer. We film, edit, produce graphics and so on as the company name suggests our main work involves producing fire safety training programmes, but we also produce all sorts of stuff.

    We've played around with web sites - mainly designed in-house and generally not what I wanted. When I discovered 'Bluepark' I was looking at putting a on-line shop together, but didn't like most of the sites that I was being shown by web developers, I didn't go a bundle on their prices either!!!

    I personally would like to congratulate Bluepark on their product, the ease of use (although I've been pretty thick on occasions), and their support which I have used regularly.

    I'd be pleased to offer any pointers on graphics etc and now I've put the core of my shop toghether I may find the time to design some new stuff.

    Colin

    Hi Guys,

    Our business has now been running for nearly 4 years.
    We sell Ford RS/ST tuning and styling products, everything from a badge to a full exhaust system.
    I switched to Bluepark about 18 months ago which is a vast improvement over our old site.
    This year alone weve had over 1.5 million page views!

    Great to see a forum added where we can hopefully share views etc.

    Thanks

    Martin

    Hi Martin

    Very impressive page view numbers. What do you put the success of this down to? Do you advertise a lot?

    Hi Pete,

    I only advertise in 2 Ford magazines each month and these are only UK based.
    We're sending orders now all over the world, in particular Japan and South Africa.

    Since switching to Bluepark our hits have soared and I think this is mainly due to the fact its so Google friendly. Most of the stuff we sell, when searched for, usually ends up at at the top of page 1 on Google which I feel is the major contributor on how weve grown over the past couple of years.

    As with most businesses you have to get your name out there and within our own field of car parts, a lot is down to word of mouth and returning customers.

    Thanks Martin. There's hope on the horizon then - I have seen our placing move up the Google rankings since the new addition of a descriptive url for product pages, which is great.

    Interested to hear you sell to South Africa, as I was born there, and my parents live there still. I would like to get into that market, but have assumed because of currency restrictions and the high exchange rate of the Rand that it was a no-go. How have you coped with that?

    Hi, I'm Gill and I run www.ever-so-sexy.com where we specialise in luxury lingerie. We started the business this time last year, initially using Actinic Lite, but lite turned out to be a very accurate description - it could not get more basic and the support was minimal. Then I found Bluepark and the wonderful Richard, switched over to Bluepark in October in time for the Christmas business and have not regretted it for a moment. Apart from saying hello and introducing myself and the business - I'd just like to take this chance to give a vote of thanks to a great product and service (and no I don't have shares in Bluepark :-) I just think it is great.

    Cool Hi from Angella

    May I introduce myself and company - I run www.internetwigs.com with a great team of staff. I am the head consultant. We moved on to Blue Park in May this year with our personal graphic design, which has been integrated successfully. Rich has been brilliant - I wish him and his team a great future, don't loose your hair by being too busy - if you do, please visit our site.

    Hi,

    I'm Andy my better half Caroline runs www.babybeesknees.co.uk I just do the technical stuff and help out when needed.
