We have no problem guaranteeing the contest once we get some good designs. We just did the logo contest where we did guarantee after we got 10 designs.
There are a ton of online gold buyers. Most of them have horrible web sites. The few we listed above seem to do what we are looking for (more or less). My favorite is gold-cash.com.
We like the copy on our existing site, but we can’t seem to capture the visitor’s attention because we have a lot of copy instead of graphically presenting the information. We only have a glance (like 3 seconds) to get their attention.
Above the fold and at a glance we need to convince them to do business with us. If they like what they see, they will give us an additional 30 seconds where we can hit them with more copy and content.
Also, take notice of the particular elements on our web page. We’re trying to work in all of the same stuff (and copy), just presented differently.
We like a color scheme of dark blue and gold to match the new logo, crisp colors, not too much clutter. White background please.
Stock Photos are okay with us, but please do not use the same images as competitors web site.
