After a couple of weeksrepparttar new site was ready for my first appraisal. With great curiosity I opened it up. First impression? Nice!

The colors of blue and grey were just right for complementingrepparttar 134686 site theme of goal achievement and personal development. Serious and business-like - that's repparttar 134687 effect I wanted.

The menu system and categorization were brilliant. It made navigation so easy and piqued a visitor's interest to investigate further from any page. Instead ofrepparttar 134688 previous mish mash of doorway pages, ads and serious articles mixed into an undefinable soup, there was now purpose and order torepparttar 134689 site.

Now began an intensive period of communication with Micah as we worked together onrepparttar 134690 small details. His input was invaluable.

Out went some 'cheesy' looking bullet graphics to be replaced by plain but professional list items.

The body text color was changed to black.

A small paragraph introduction was added torepparttar 134691 top of each category section.

The color and formatting ofrepparttar 134692 hyperlinks and article boxes was fine tuned.

Atrepparttar 134693 end ofrepparttar 134694 day do I miss my very own do it yourself web site? Quite honestly NO. I now have a professional web site I am pleased with and one which is now set up to accomplish my business goals.

Have I got any results to boast about yet? Yes. My visitors' behavior has changed radically. The tracking records show visitors are now hitting an average of 4 pages per visit as opposed to 1 before. The navigation system with categories has made sure of that.
