Discover YOUR Online Poker RoomWritten by Robert Myer
As all poker sites on internet call themselves poker rooms so that is what I’m going to call them too.
The first thing you have to do to check out a room is to download their software. You should download at least five rooms but ten is better. Set up accounts in each one so that you can enter their rooms to get an idea of how they operate.
The first thing to look for is layout of “home page”. Does it make you feel comfortable? Is it easy to understand? These are not important points but they need to be thought about.
One very important point is ease of navigation inside room.
Can you find game schedule easily? Is help readily available? Do they break down free games from money games? Do you have to search through entire list of games to find what you want?
Write down your impressions of each room so that you can make judgments later .
Now play in some of their free games to get a feel for how software works. This will help you decide whether you want to play at room or not. There’s no use going any further in checking a room out if you don’t like playing there.
After you have done above you have probably eliminated one or two rooms. Now you have to decide what games and what type of games that you want to play.
Do you want Hold’em, Stud, Omaha? Do you want tournaments or ring games? Do you want freerolls or money tournaments? Or do you want some combination of all of them?
Love at First Site: Giving Your Written by Sam Serio
Website Visitors right Impression Think of people who visit your site as blind dates. When you open door, your blind date usually knows whether they are attracted to you within first minute. How do they know? Easy. By how you look, what you say, and how you treat them. If you open door wearing same clothes you wore in 1987, say, "Wow, from my friend's description, I thought you would be a lot better looking," and sneeze in your dates face, not only will you never get a second date, your date will run for his/her life. The same rules apply to your website. When people do a search for something they want to buy, they usually have many sites to choose from. If yours does not impress them right off bat, it takes about five seconds for them to find another that does show them what they want to see. There are plenty of other fish in sea. You are just one among many. So what do people want to see, you ask? There are 3 standards of website excellence, and they are same standards you would use to judge your blind date: 1. How it looks: If I visit two different websites with purpose of buying something, and those two websites sold exact same product at exact same price, I would buy from site that looked better--the one whose design made me think, "Wow, these guys must be making good money if they can afford to hire a good graphic designer." The more money I think business makes, more I will identify them with value and professionalism. The bottom line is, you need to make web design a priority. There are plenty of people out there who have graphic designer friends willing to design their website for next to nothing. Those people have advantage because, even if they aren't superior business, visitors will perceive them to be superior. If you don't have any connections with graphic designers willing to do you a favor, see if you can find a starving artist willing to design layout of your site. If anyone has an eye for aesthetics and is willing to work cheap, it's a starving artist. Once you know what your site should look like, either you or a web designer can bring artist's vision to life. Take time to design something that represents your business or product well. Don't just throw up a website with gaudy wallpaper, out of focus pictures and graphics placed at random. Remember that first moment when you open door to a blind date. Remember how much appearances count for in this world.
