    Hi Guys,

    Can you please provide some honest feedback on my site at http://www.whatawasteofmoney.com
    In your opinion what works (if anything) and what doesn’t?

    Thanks
    Richard

    I’m always happy to review websites. I build them and have a psychology background.
    The website is clean and responsive – great. Very visually appealing. Loved it. I happen to be after one of the products so I’ll look into it.

    I liked the Call to Action being different and can see it appealing to the cooler market you’re after but I did wonder if first time users might be baffled. If you haven’t already, I’d encourage you to ask 50 people, in your target persona/market, what they would do to buy one with “Use the Force” as a “Buy” CTA.

    Search actually brought up relevant products. It should be taken for granted but how many websites cock that up?! Well done.

    Try to fill your categories – it will look so much better because, unlike Pinterest, you’re maintaining a fixed height.

    You have Privacy but I couldn’t find Terms of Service. Protect yourself. Get it done professionally. If it goes wrong, you’ll regret it. I can recommend two lawyers who specialise in terms for online businesses. No commission or disclosures and I’ve used one of them so, if you can work out how to do it, PM me or connect on LinkedIn or Follow me back on Twitter.

    BTW, dispose of that warning that’s showing front end from WordPress for some reason. See attached. Footer, all pages

    Hope that helps Richard. It’s a great site and I wish you all the best with it.

    Thanks for the review. I am aware of the issue with the footer, I have decided what I will put in that section as yet, maybe I will use a placeholder for the time being.

    Not sure what you mean by “fill your categories” can you please explain that?

    Regards
    Richard

    You’re welcome. On your categories page, some of the categories had just one product and a lot of white space. You could arrange them like Pinterest so they only take up the vertical space that actually has products in them, or keep the fixed height but show more products. Not a major deal but emptiness can look like a work in progress. Just like a physical shop, it always looks better when shelves are full.

    Hi Richard

    From a legal perspective, it is important to have website terms and conditions in place. If you are collecting personal information and you are regulated under the Privacy Act, you will also need to have a privacy statement in place.

    If you need help in drafting these, I would be happy to help you.

    Kind regards
