Default My Team's Website!

Hey all,

I just joined RC Tech and I have to say that I'm impressed. I'm trying to better my and my team's abilities as drivers. In pursuit of that goal I have created a website for my team: Z Main Racing. It is www.zmainracing.4t.com! Check it out. On the contact page there are several cool features. A survey on which RC car you like to race, and a message board for visitors to leave ideas, comments, and suggestions on.
I will continue to browse this very informative site and hope you will browse mine! Thanks!

Red Z - a little advice -

I've added you to the listings on my site, but your site has one problem that I have seen on a LOT of sites.

Not everyone knows where you are. I had to dig a bit to find it, but I did find your address. The operative here is "I had to dig."

Rule one of ANY website that wants to be found - place your business mailing address, city, and state on every page of your site, or at the very lease on the main page.

I know how to make a marquee, but what are some other things I can do to text to make it more animated? How can I use a .gif animation?

Red - Flashing lights and animated goobers are not what makes a website hot. CONTENT. That's the king. That's what's going to attract visitors. That and patience. *

But if you're determined, the Gif Construction set will do animated .gifs, and Flash is always good for lightweight vectored animations.

*By patience I mean it can take up to six months after a site is established to begin generating traffic. You have to wait it out. I work for an ISP and do this for a living.

rocknbil hit it right on the head. Content is more important than a flashy website. Sometimes flashy will turn a visitor away. I use adobe image ready for animations.

Ok i guess i was just thinking of trying one simple animation. What do you guys think of my content? Anything missing or is there too much of something?

A small animation will not hurt your site. There is also not too much of anything, mainly not enough. Add more content like setup tips, paint masks, reviews, video clips of your races. Whatever you for see that you want to have, start getting ideas.

I like the parts you have added. It is a start just keep adding things you want people to know or see. My rule of them is tell them about me, how to get a hold of me, pictures of whatever subject it is. place to tell me what they think. you have got that going.

Peace Aaron
