Anyone want to share either their web site address or anyones web site?

My marketing guy needs me to share ideas with him about what my web site should look like, however I am about the last guy in the world to come up with something like that.
I was hoping maybe some of you have come across a really cool website or maybe you are proud of yours and would allow me to "steal" some ideas from you.

Some of the "flash" intros look neat.

Thanks

Dnk....

Shouldn't a "Marketing Guy" be telling you what your website should look like?

I have the same problem. I got some that will set me up with a site but needs my input on how it should look.

I wish I had more pictures of what we did. I don't like taking pictures when the customers around. My pitures don't look all that stunning. It seems hard to get good lighting pictures. Maybe I need a wide angle lens.

Scott,

He does tell me, he throws Ideas at me but none of them strike a cord with me. His ideas are not based on my trade, he can put buttons and graphics on there, but the text has to come from me, the ideas have to be mine.

Once I give him a platform to work with, he goes to town. It is like a lettering guy for your truck, he can give you ideas for your logo and lettering, but you have to live with his ideas then. You have to come up with the idea, he can go from there.

Active, I have alot of photos of some stuff I did, but I forgot to make "before" shots. I got plenty of "after". That was one mistake on my part, not doing the before shots.When I started taking pics in the beginning,they turned out like crap. I didn't know how to properly light the object at first, but I am still learning. Thank god for digital cameras, they are awesome, once you figure out all the bells and whistles.

Dnk
