    Visit http://www.sockemtome.com. Spend no more than 5-10 seconds on the home page. What do you think the site is about? It appears to be a site that offers socks via a subscription service.
     
    Now go back to the site and comment on various elements of the site. Well starting with the download time, all pages appear to open instantly.  No waiting for pages to load.   I like the style of the website, colors are very clear, bright and eye catching.     The pages are very clean looking, fonts are the perfect size.   Contact information is up front and plain to see on the landing page.  The landing page makes me want to proceed into the website.   Ordering seems to be very easy, self explanatory.   All link seem to be functioning.  Shopping cart is functionable.
     
    What do you find bothersome? What do you like? I do not find any part of this website bothersome.  As mentioned above, these are all great features.   I like the ease when using this website.  I think it’s very functionable, flows well, attracts attention, overall, a great idea!  The site is very easy to navigate through.  I like the information on the About Our Services page.    Great amount of refund time.  I would feel very comfortable ordering.
     
    Is the buying process straightforward? Yes.  My order was placed and when I clicked on the Checkout link, I was instantly taken to the Paypal page.  It’s very self explanatory.
     
    Would you buy a trial (one-off sample) if given a $10 voucher? Why / why not? I would consider buying 1 paid for $5.00 after the $10.00 voucher in order to try it out.  I think socks are an item that everyone needs to buy anyway, so why not?!
     
    Is the discount voucher process straightforward (use code ‘startuplift2011′)? I did not actually proceed to through the Paypal screen, which I am assuming to be the place to put the code in.  I would like to be informed of the cost of actual S & H before I would sign into my account.
     
    Rank the following in terms of what improvements would you most like to see, from the following:

    Improving payment mechanism, such as an alternative option to Paypal

    Differentiating product graphics on front page.
    Animation slideshows on front banner, or better graphical work.
    Better explanation of value proposition.
    Cheaper/different product offering.

     
    Rank:  1, 4, 3, 5, 2
    Offering different options to customers other than Paypal, will always be more beneficial to the potential customer.   By offering credit cards, and even personal checks, you are opening your market up to a greater audience.
     
    The more information as to why the customer needs to purchase from your site, the better.
     
    I feel that your site is already attractive.  I can’t think of anything that would make it more appealing at the moment.
     
     

    Please share any additional feedback/comments you might have. I think that this is excellent work.  I love the website, I love the product and the value.  The ease of navigation of the site is commendable.  Great work!!
