    ·      Visit http://www.PosterMyWall.com. Spend no more than 5-10 seconds on the home page. What do you think the site is about?

    I think the site allows users to customize and create poster collages that can be printed and shipped to them at high quality.  It’s digitizing the photo walls we all used to make in high school and in our college dorms.  It’s a neat idea – especially given that you’ve provided backgrounds and templates that can be incorporated into the posters.  As far as I’m concerned, the concept is straightforward and well communicated on the home page. 
    ·      Now go back to the site and comment on various elements of the site.

    You seem to have a lot on the homepage.  I think that you could move some of this material – especially anything that requires scrolling, to secondary pages.  Consider adding additional tabs to the top navigation bars to increase organization, and reduce homepage clutter.  Too much makes a site looks less professional.  If you’ve laid out your concept well, which you have, consumers will click on if they’re interested.  If they’re not interested, they’re still not going to be even after looking at everything you have to offer on the homepage.  I’d consider putting all the stuff about popular posters, backgrounds, and themes in an entirely separate section – it doesn’t need to be on the homepage – that’s stuff that is a consideration after the consumer has already been sold the main idea.  I’d also remove your pricing from the homepage – that seems like TMI upfront – make them search for it!  You don’t want to turn someone off immediately by the pricing, even before they’ve had a chance to explore.  Sell it to them first, then they’ll see the value in your pricing scheme.

    I really like the scroll – I think it shows good examples of your work, how the software works, and it’s fun!  This is great. 
    ·      What do you find bothersome? What do you like?

    Bothersome features, some mentioned above, include:

     

    Too much on the homepage – too much clutter
    The pricing should definitely be in a separate section
    I wouldn’t want my poster automatically showing up in “Recent Posters” – I’d make sure you communicate that your poster will only show up there if you choose to allow this.  What if you make something personal/private?!

        Features I like include:

     

    The connection to social media.  Definitely keep this on the hompage – I think this is a huge selling point.  It makes the software so easy!
    The press box is good – it shows your relevance.  I might put this on a separate page within a “News” or “About Us” tab – it’ll get more exposure there.  I know it seems counterintuitive that removing something from your homepage will get it more exposure, but when you have an easy to follow and read navigation panel, users will click there first, as opposed to scrolling!

    ·      Try to make a poster. What do you think of the backgrounds? Are you able to make an attractive poster?

    The backgrounds are good (mostly aimed at children and young teens).  I’m able to make a poster.  It’s easy to do, and especially easy to upload photos.  I love that I can search the web for photos. 
    ·      What would help you to make a better, more interesting poster?

    If I were to use this software I’d like to have some backgrounds there were a little more professional.  I am of course able to make posters for business or professional use, but if you had examples of more companies using this in ways that attract adults, I’d like that.  I did see a few – but perhaps you could add a “small business” section – it reaches an entirely new target market whilst not alienating your primary audience (assuming that is children/teens/parents/etc.)
    ·      Are there any parts of the Poster Maker that are hard to use? Which parts?

    It wasn’t hard for me to do, although, I’ve used computers forever and this comes naturally to me.  Even so, though, I’d imagine this would be straight forward for those who aren’t familiar.  You’ve made your site, your concept, and your program easy to do. I might add that onto your bullet point on features on the homepage: “Easy to make!”
    ·      Please share any additional feedback/comments you may have.

    I really liked this idea.  I could have seen myself using this when I was younger. I don’t think the prices are outrageous – I’ve paid much more for art that I like – and if you print pictures through Kodak or a drugstore, you’d pay a lot more for prints those sizes.  I think you should compare your pricing to what it would cost to blow up a personal photo at a print shop like that.  You can’t compare to Wal-Mart’s posters, as the review above did, because those are mass produced images – this is not what you do. I think you have a unique idea and product that many will use.  Now you just have to reach and market to those audiences!  Good luck!

    I need some posters for my band. I’m wondering if these will work. Would be nice to make a collage of all our shows.
