Landing Page Feedback September 23, 2019

Share your love or hate to me! Need feedback 🙏

Victor Ribero Guasch @devictoribero

Hello friends 😀!

After giving a lot of feedback to the community I'm here to ask for it!

😬 If you don't want to read, this is the website : https://www.chooseyourplant.com/

👉 For the ones that want to know the idea:
🌱 Chooseyourplant is a houseplant marketplace where the user can find in a natural way plants that match his criteria (plant size, size or color of the leaves, features such as not toxic, for terrariums, for the bathroom...).

📝 All the data related to the plants are being collected manually .

If you want to learn more, I'll be talking about the product increment such as https://twitter.com/devictoribero/status/1176238882356170752

Bests,
Victor

    No need for hate here, we can criticise constructively without being hateful.
    Now for the feedback:
    Great website... just that I'd reduce the image the plant on the right... it would look great if it were just below the header.

    1. 1

      I redesigned the header of the landing page. See the result here https://www.chooseyourplant.com/ 😀. What do you think about it?

      1. 1

        Sorry but this looks worse that what was there before. You have taken away the modern style from it.
        Go back to what you had before... font and all.
        Just crop the plant image or reduce its dimensions and, in my opinion, you will be set

        1. 1

          Solved after deploying more than 15 times. That's kind of annoying... https://www.chooseyourplant.com/

          1. 1

            Hahahaha! The life of a developer... You never really know anything until you've deployed, regardless of how many times you test it

            1. 1

              absolutely hahahahha

        2. 1

          LOL I don't know why, sometimes when I deploy, the styles are broken (something is wrong with NextJS and Netlify...)

          I have to deploy a couple or three times until the styles are OK.

    2. 1

      It was a joke 😝.

      Yes I agree on that. The image looks off compared to all the design.

      I will try it!

      Thank you so much 😊

    Hi Victor !
    Nice fonts and screenshots!
    2 points to think about:

    • header illustration can have smaller size and right margin.
    • texts and screenshots can have more space between them.

    Great work !

    1. 1

      Yes, definitely the image has to be replaced hahaha

      On the other hand, I'll try about the space between text and images!

      Thank you so much for the feedback :D

      1. 2

        Anytime :)

  3. 2

    Design is very nice and clear. Great that you have in app photos on the landing page

    1. 1

      I'm glad you liked it and thank you so much for the feedback!

      I thought it would be a good idea to show the things I have done. Which is almost all the MVP!

  4. 1

    Love the page design - very floral!

    Actually very excited about this, my wife and I were just talking the other day about what we can/should plant for autumn - this should save us a couple of hours on Google!

    1. 1

      Yes! haha It should. I haven't thought yet about a feature related to temperature but, after the MVP I could add "frost resistant" for plants and then, the temperature.

      I thought about lot of features!

      1. 2

        That would be super useful - we don't want to buy plants that will end up dying!

  5. 1

    Hey there!

    Design is great. Very neat.

    I kind of had to read the pitch twice. “ We make plants easy” doesn’t make so much sense to me. Maybe “ We make choosing plants easy”?

    Also instead of “searching fast” for plants, I’d be more interested in searching accurately against a number of of options. Maybe you can highlight that first?

    Finally, once you’re able to, do put up a video! :)

    1. 1

      I did the iteration and the result is live! I updated the copy and the whole hero section!

      What do you think about it 😀?
      https://www.chooseyourplant.com/

      1. 1

        So much better! :)

        1. 1

          is it 😀? thank you so much!

    2. 1

      Hiii! First of all thank you for the feedback!

      You're right about the "slogan". Everyone says that haha. I thought about : "the plant you love, for the spot you have" which suggests that we will find a plant. What do you think?

      On the other hand, I already filmed a video but there is not many varieties of plants right now, only about 65. I think a great number would be about 300.

      Again, thank you so much for the feedback!

  6. 1

    I like the landing page and believe the service is very useful. When I go to Lowes or HomeDepot, I just pick up a plant that I like the look of and look at the tags to find out if I feel as though I can take care of it. This service will make that process a whole lot easier.

    My feedback for the landing page is as follows.

    1. Replace illustration with stock photography of someone maybe watering a plant. It would fit better with the landing page.

    2. I don't like "We make plants easy". I think it should be changed to something else maybe "Find the right plant" or something I don't know, but "We make plants easy" doesn't sound right too me.

    1. 1

      Thanks to your feedback and everyone I updated the header section and I think it looks better! What do you think about it?

      Hello @tholloday!

      First of all, thank you for the feedback provided!

      As you pointed out, something that would improve the look and feel is to change that image. I'm working on one so in a week or so I will change it. The reason I went LIVE it's because I wanted to validate the idea!

      Related the second point you made, right now I'ts not the best but, I'm planning on filters super handy so it's going to be easy to find plants. Like:

      • hanging plant
      • big plant for the corner
      • mini plant for the table
        And things like that. I'll include a blog, newsletter, etc... And try to create a community.

      In that case would you thing it's still off? I have too: Find the plant you love, for the spot you have.

      Thank you so much again for your feedback @tholloday

      Have a great day!

      1. 2

        I really like "Find the plant you love, for the spot you have". It's much better than "We make plants easy".

        1. 1

          Sure! I'll update it then! But I want to give it at least a couple of days so I can receive more feedback. Do you know someone who could help me improve it?

          1. 2

            Besides here and Reddit, no.

      Ohhh thank you so much for the feedback! I'll try to do with Adobe another image to replace that one which I did quite fast.

      Related to when I'm going live, I don't know. The reason it's because I'm looking for full-remote jobs and it takes me a lot of time

      To go LIVE I still have to ask and receive the images to people who want to collaborate because I don't want to use images without permission.

      Leave me the email and I'll notify you ;P
