Example Site Wednesdays: FrenchBarn

Another Wednesday means another example site! This time, we’re showing off the, rather lovely, FrenchBarn.net. FrenchBarn is in a network of sites, all focused on selling items. Although the site is built for eCommerce, the design still has a personal style and artistic feel to it to help the site stand out.

French Barn

This site takes full advantage of the Webs Etsy App to display and sell the items. This App helps to pull in all the items (including images, information and price) from your Etsy store, and puts them on your site seamlessly. All you need to do is install the App, enter your Etsy username, and voila! Your Etsy items will immediately appear on your site! Best of all, the items still link to your Etsy store so your buyers will still make purchases through Etsy.

FrenchBarn has a very simple navigation bar and also uses these other great features:

  • Custom Domain name for a professional image, and to help search engine ranking.
  • Web Store to sell non-Etsy items. A great way to make money on your site!
  • FAQ App to answer commonly asked questions and help build buyer confidence.

Check back next Wednesday to see another Webs site showcased. If you’d like to see your site up here, sound off in the comments! Make sure your site is looking great, uses unique designs and we might just have your name on display next week.

    This is really a creative design work. The best part is very clear and direct to theme site. We inspired from clear look. thanks webs. If the owner use the site name in home page meta tag setting . then they will get more search engine credit.

    nice and clean – simple to the point and does exactly what is needed without all the extra.
    like the logo
    my only comment would be that they should lock their background wood – which I like a lot – cause on some longer pages the wood does not seam and doesnt look as nice. if it was locked it would add one more level of professional feel to it.

    Awesome website! Like the lettering very much. Would be amasing if next week you could feature http://www.ducksonskates.webs.com/ Seeing as ducks love the countryside… and the city,and the town, and the villlage,and the hamlet. Ducks love pretty much anything, including marmite 😛 So if you also like or despise marmite then feature this site and we shall nominate you as a duck-liker of the free world.

    Aspiring Litigators of America (ALA) is an association exclusively designed for scholars throughout the nation who are interested in pursuing careers in the legal field. The association will have weekly meetings with its most active members in our expected headquarters located at Lehigh Valley Academy in Bethlehem, PA. During these weekly meetings, members will learn about the different fields of law, discuss current legal news and topics, create and participate in mock trials, research past cases in our nation’s history and decide if the rulings and convictions set forth by the court were unconstitutional, and possibly have an opportunity to meet local attorneys and ask them questions about their occupation or just about law in general.
    The ALA’s website surpasses the expected qualifications that must be met to be featured, by all means and indefinitely possesses the degree of quality a website needs in order to be featured. The ALA displays a wide variety of different pages including: Home, About Us, Spread the Word, Chapters, Members, Upcoming Events, Photos, Links, and a Buzzworthy App for Legal News/Topics. The ALA would greatly appreciate being featured in next week’s edition of Example Site Wednesdays.

    Ahoi, your post here surely got me interested up to the last letter, so I just had to comment on it. Incidentally I noticed it through Google and I must confess to you I nearly never read the complete review of a blog as I more or less always get tired of the “gossip” that is offered to me on a frequent basis. Yours is totally different and finally well researched or written. Will for sure further check out your blog! 🙂

    Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of this website. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s very difficult to get that “perfect balance” between user friendliness and appearance. I must say you’ve done a great job with this. Additionally, the blog loads very quick for me on Internet explorer. Outstanding Blog!
