Hi there,

I have been home sick today and decided to see what I could do to add some "Oomph" to our website. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Debbi,

Here's a few ideas to help:
* For better results with Google searches, convert the image with text at the top (club name and location) into actual text: - that makes it searchable.

* Add more text about the club, anything about meetings and members (friendly? professional;-oriented? any special interests?). A short paragraph would be a good amount.

* add a photo or two showing members. It could be a group photo, or a couple of action shots of someone speaking.

* Move the list of officers to a new custom page. That accomplishes two goals: 1- gives you more space to work with for the other items above, and 2-creates an additional page for Google to index and visitors to possibly view. Plus, the list of officers is of more interest to members than guests, so put something more guest-oriented on that valuable home page space.

Think about adding your Facebook feeder page to your home page. That way, every time you write about your club on the Facebook page, it will show up on your home page. Nice colors too!

Add a little something about your club on the home page, such as: where you meet, what guests could get out of coming, maybe a photo or two of club winners and/or meeting information from the TI site and a link to the contact us page and directions page.

I saw your Website, very nice. One thing I suggest is to have the Board list in "Main Menu" with a picture of the members of the board, but without the email addresses. Personally I don't like to make emails public, I get enough "spam". You can use the space you used to list the Board Members for a Group Picture. Aida.
