As a young gothic mother of 2, I moved (with my family) to a remote island of Australia 3 years ago. Living remotely has it’s challenges, particularly in the field of entrepreneurship as we have limited access to resources, networking and exposure. This hasn’t stopped me on my mission to be a successful business woman. I am one small Gothic lady with enormous drive and tenacity.

What is different about Goth Clothes to our competitors is the way we have included the blog and forum where we can have interactive access to our clientele. The purpose of the forum is to provide a platform where we can build a strong relationship with our customers, to get them involved in the website and build an interactive community within our site. The blog is structured to allow us to showcase our products through written, pictorial and video reviews. People can comment, vote and generally lead the way with the type of products they want to see in the store.

    Please visit http://gothclothes.com.au. Please give your first impressions.

    The layout is very nice.  Home page has all the necessary links to successfully browse what you have and what the customer needs to make a satisfying shopping event.  However, I am tired of looking at half-naked females with sultry expressions, but that’s just my opinion.

    Please have a look at the News link on the top menu bar and comment on the features of the blog that you like or don’t like.

    Again, I have a problem with the sultry expressions and the half-dressed aspect of the slide-show.  I like the “weird ads” feature although it doesn’t look weird to me.  The Facebook and Twitter links are a must have so that’s good.  The Quill is a nice feature that keeps the visitor updated on what’s current.  The font used in the block at  the top right is a little hard to decipher and a little ambitious looking.  I could read Gothic, but I can’t understand the second word.  Maybe if you lost the shadow aspect, then it would work.  I looked at it a second time and could finally tell it was a dictionary entry.  I like that.  The other two features, Live News Girl and Product News & Reviews are good additions.

    Would you sign up for the $25 discount voucher? If not – why?

    If I wore Goth type clothes and had extra money to spend, sure, I’d sign up for it.  I was a bit confused how to sign up for it, though.  Would I sign up for the VIP Member to get it?  Some people like me need to see things like, “To get a $25 voucher, sign up to become a VIP Member.”

    Please take a look at the Forum (top menu of the shop) and comment on the features of the forum that you like / don’t like.

    Yes!  The forum looks Goth-like lovely.  Nice use of colors.  Great avatars/graphics.  The War Room is a clever title for what it will be used for.  All in all, if a customer/visitor is a forum user, this will be a welcoming place to socialize.

    Would you use the forum? If not – why?

    I generally don’t use forums, but it is a lovely lay-out and I think once it catches on others will use it.

    How do you think the site compares to its competitors?

    I’ve got to be honest.  I took a look at other sites to compare and yours is nicer to look at with the exception of the “Girlie” slideshow.

    Please share any other feedback / comments you may have.

    In conclusion, you have a nice workable website that is accommodating to the customer.  The only drawback, again, is the slideshow.  I would take that down and put up a slideshow with how people will look in the clothes out on the streets instead of in the bedroom.

    Hi Sierra12346,
    Thanks for taking the time to check out my submission and for your thoughtful feedback.
    RE the links to return to the homepage, the logo image provides that function on the blog and forum – however, I am grateful you have brought this to my attention as this is obviously not obvious enough!
    Lots of good food for thought.
    Thank you.

    RE your question “Is there goth lingerie?”, the answer is no, the images relate to the category “Stripper Shoes” as the scantilly clad models are all wearing amazing shoes.
