Well, I'm tired of paying Etsy over $100 a month in commissions! :x I am very interested in someone helping me build a web site for my TOG Soap Tools! I would be willing to barter my trade for your help. Want a TOG Mold, a TOG Cutter, or beveler? Lets talk........ :wink: :idea:

Paul,
Their is a bright side,all of your hard work has paid off.I always thought to myself "why doesn't he have his own web page?".. Etsy is a great site,but in reality you have outgrown it.I'm happy for ya... :)
I think with all the molds you make,and Phyllis's soaps,and you also have the bonus of her photography skills.. I don't know many that can say that.
Combine the two.. with the actual finished soaps.. wow! I can see it.
Just wish I was a lil' more savvy with HTML to help you and everything else thats needed for web designs.
I was just looking at your TOG'S yesterday,I have a lot to learn about them and soaping,but where to start..
I wish you the best,I know that whatever the outcome is,it's going to be outstanding.
Good luck :)

Munky.

There are lots of click & build websites out there you can build in just a few hours. They are simple to build like listing on etsy. It is a fill in the blank type format. You will pay around $20.00 a month to get it hosted though. Then there is advertsing. Do you have a plan to drive traffic to this site & what that expense might be?

I use www.internetbasedfamily.com for my www.texasrtspot.com It is an easy fill in the blank webshosting site. It runs $21.00 a month & there are 100's of *skins* to choose from. They have shopping carts, newsletters, etc all built in as well as a large stock photo lot you can use. They should have a 30 day free trial you can play w/ to see if you like it.

That's so much money going out of your pocket. A good place though as it has made you well known for your wonderful craftmanship. Keep us posted on your website adventure please.

I'm sure there are many newbies to this site :wink: who would be interested in learning how the process went.

Take care and good luck.

Hey Paul I think this is step in the right direction for you. I'm excited for you. I just received my mold and am going to order more. I wish I could help with the web site. I need to build one myself and am not that knowledgeable, but if I do get some tips from any of my "techie" friends, I'll be sure to pass it along.

paul, look up a program called site spinner, or something similar (you can go to download.com..but dont try to pirate it...get lots of viruses like that ( i learned the hard way....)

that is if you want to do it yourself.... i heard that globat.com is good for hosting...kind of cheap so thats good...thats my 2cents :)


anyone have any site building software they wouldnt mind sharing???

Id be willing to barter as well :)

Really? I find it to be the easiest program there is. I love it. If you're interested I can try to look up some of my stuff from my class. I took it online through my college so I have it all somewhere on my backup drive (which is so unorganized I should be ashamed, lol).

ooh, yeah, I like Dreamweaver too. I used to be a Frontpage fan, until I tried Dreamweaver, and now I can barely tolerate Frontpage...
