Built an e-commerce project. I am so excited. 😀

Materialized an idea which came during my visit to a maker workshop. This is a rough MVP. https://www.wordlaser.com

    I my opinion, it would be more trustworthy if you had a picture of an actual laser cut word somewhere on the page so I could see for myself how the final product would look.

      Very true. As mentioned before that's already in pipeline. Where in the homepage do you suggest i put it?

        Made a quick wireframe of what I would do: https://www.figma.com/file/KDAibhMI9Tt7VjxocBl96GQY/Untitled?node-id=0%3A1

        Basically, there doesn't need to be an image on the page necessarily, for me it would be enough to have a button somewhere to see a gallery of examples.

        One other thing I would do is condense the whole page so that it fits on the screen. The placement of things maybe isn't the best but I believe the whole service is more understandable when you can see everything at once.

        Everything I said is of course my opinion so feel free to disregard it completely lol.

          Thanks for this. I did want to use columns like any editor. Was just unable (read lazy) to do it for the MVP.

          Totally agree.

            Haha, I get it. I'm in the process of building my portofolio so let me know if you'd like some free help on the website.
            I do webdesign and front end dev.

              You have already helped me. :)

    Good approach! How do you get targeted traffic?

    1. 1

      Currently, social media posts, friend circles, commenting on gifting blog articles, every product ordered has a link on its back, requesting customers with text template, to post their ordered item on social media, with a back link.

    Looks like a good start.

    Have you thought about using a theme (bootstrap, foundation, etc) instead of designing your own? I've found that an essential shortcut.

      I am using bulma.
