John Kremer

Tonight, I was reviewing some of the referral sources for where our new members came from.

John Kremer, Book Marketing Maven of gave us a mention back in February in his Book Marketing Update. I surfed his site and while it was not very hip-hop, it was a mile deep on quality content of interest to authors who are learning how to market their books.

Gosh, what do I have to do to be hip-hop? How could I make my web site more hip-hop? I’d really like to know.

Perhaps you could consider turning your site-design to a webdesign team to come up with some thumbs sketches of new designs for your site to consider. Pay them to create a template and new look-n-feel that you can then put all of your data into.

I’m not an expert on web design and I was really trying to give you a compliment of the depth of your site above in my comments…

Perhaps the clue that said your site wasn’t keeping up with the current styles is the Cyan color and it looks like you designed the site by yourself (different size tables, varying widths (site doesn’t look good in 1280×1024 but does look ok in 800×600), etc).

Best way to describe your website design: Lots of meat and potatoes all stacked up on the ground.

You’re not a newbie and with the sheer depth of your expertise, you should have a site that is designed by web designers who have equal knowledge of site design, graphics, databases, etc.

Lastly, let me share a perspective: Even though I owned a website design firm at one time (WebSitePro’s Inc) and an ISP and all kinds of Internet related ventures over the past decade… I still know that I should not design my own websites because website design & coding is an expertise all on its own. I turn this function over to experts who template everything up for me so all I have to do is fill in the blanks for the content.
