Here's my reply: I hope you don't mind me posting it in public view, but the crappy email service here wouldn't let me send you a reply. There was no send button in sight!!! I looked everywhere for it!


I've had a quick look at it. I'd say the biggest problem is that you are trying to promote the site to too many different people. This is a classic marketing mistake. You should focus on one thing and be very good at it eg. jobs; not jobs, shopping, games, photos and forums on religion and politics. Also, it looks like a site that no one goes to. It is easy to see that there are no photos posted, no forum posts. You could have at least got a few friends to add some comments. But no, don't do that. Remove the forum!!!

Furthermore, on the pages where you are trying to sell jewellery, saying this: "Special Instructions: Do you have enough money for the shipping cost to your country? If no, please contact us to see what we can do.", makes you lack credibility. It speaks of desperation to me. Other things that reduce your credibility are the domain name - it needs to be something like http://charyjobs.com. The extra .webs part makes it look like a free hosted site, which someone who had a real business would never consider using. Also having outside advertisments on the site makes it look spammy - especially having some ad like this flashing at me "Winner: You are the 1,000,000th Visitor: Click to claim your prize!!"

Another thing is that people can't see the benefits of the jobs part of the site, because you make them sign up first before they see anything. They have to see something of value to want to sign up.

Okay, I hope that helps.

Thanks a lot, by the way, i don't mind you pasting your reply here as the question was initially posted to the public. I will try to renovate the site according to your instructions as they are really value adding. As for the domain name, it will take a while before I shift from the free hosted site to my own site. However, i will try to edit the contents of the website so as to focus on one thing. Feel free to visit my site at http://charyjobs.webs.com/ after a while and comment on the changes I would have made, be it good or bad, I will really appreciate it. Thanks again for the help, you are one in a million initially posted to the public. I will try to renovate the site according to your instructions as they are really value adding.

Hi,

I went to your website and I agree with Greg. You need to define who your website is for. If you want people to come in, register and post jobs or look for jobs, then your website should have a professional look. There should be a visible sign up page on the sidebar. People should also be able browse through your site's content freely. Make only certain parts of the site "members' only". For example, a non-member can browse through jobs but can only apply for one if he is a member. Or someone who is looking to post a job or project can do so after registering. Bestjobs USA is a good example of a job site. The site has a clean, organized layout with fonts that are easy to read. The advertisements are all about finding a job too. You do not have to register to apply to a job post but you need to be a member to post your job ad.

Hope that helps. Have a good day!
