Website bullshit general...
What the fuck should I write on my crappy wordpress site for my consulting business? I can only list the stuff I do so many times.
Where do I get fucking pictures? How do I fucking pick pictures in this sea of grabage stock photography? I have a single product that I make and plan to sell, but it has very limited market appeal.
Where do I get a logo that isn't shit and isn't $100?
1. Write articles on the easy parts of your consulting business. Shit people are googling for that is easy to do. Then of course, at the end of each article, recommend your own services that provide way more than the article described.
2. unsplash for some general stock photos.
Or go actually take pictures of people using your product. Call your family if you are desperate.
3. I know some people that do logos
I will try to write some articles to fill out the site. But even the front page is difficult. There's only so much generic bullshit that I can write. I feel like SOMETHING needs to be there.
I have the camera and lighting gear needed to take good product shots. I'm mostly referring to filler stuff. I'm not sure whether my product should take center stage, as I mostly do engineering-related consulting.
Screenshots of Arduino/PLC/VB.NET code don't make for interesting content. Neither does some breadboarded crap I'm working on.
Do any of these people you know have sites? I've been on fiverr, and it seems like a scam. Everything is based on getting you in the door for <$10 and then upselling you to the $75-100 mark with the shit you actually want/need.
I would buy the photos.
Was making steak and eggs. Absolutely delicious.
It all depends on how much you have to spend. 99designs is a good place to get a logo made if you have a general "feel" for how you want it to look.
If you want to design your own website then start asking for help in >>>/g/wdg
otherwise just hire someone for 30-40 an hour that has a good portfolio.
Fill in your keyword in Google Keyword Planner. See what other keywords are related to your keyword. Write new articles with those new keywords.
And don't waist your time/money on a logo, nobody cares. It's all about the content.
is it wise to put various things that have no relation to each other besides being things you want to make and sell on a personal website? example: say if i wanted to build grand pianos but then also did landscaping
I have a personal site where I hose source code, applications, and projects I've made. It is separate from this one which serves my business venture(s).
I'm not sure that a product I have designed and made is unrelated to the design/development and automation services that I provide.
