Example Site Wednesday: The You Show

This week we are bringing you a very special Halloween edition of Example Site Wednesday with ‘The You Show’.  Check out their Halloween theme this month:

We love how ‘The You Show’ is constantly updating their website. They aren’t afraid to experiment with new apps and are always checking out new Webs features. Here are some recent features that ‘The You Show’ is using:

–          ContactMe App to help turn their site visitor to active leads.

–          Cafepress App to create and sell products to site visitors. The You Show has one of the coolest Cafepress shops that we have seen around.

By keeping what works for them and getting rid of what doesn’t, ‘The You Show’ is continually improving their site and offering the best that they can to their users. It’s no wonder that they already have over 150 members and growing!

Another thing that ‘The You Show’ is great at is throwing promotions. Promotions help to increase frequency of current site members, boost new sign-ups, and help get your site name out there. They are particularly useful if you rely heavily on social networks like Twitter and Facebook.

Want more tips to improve your site? Check out:

5 Mistakes That Spell Disaster for Your Website.

Leave a comment below if you want your site to be considered for a future Example Site Wednesday, or if you just have thoughts you want to share.

Stay safe this Halloween, don’t eat all of your candy at once (save some for us!).

    They certainly have all the bells and whistles going on! Happy Halloween!

    If you are looking for a calmer, simpler site that’s not selling anything, come visit mine. I am continually adding information and updates, and trying new things that are appropriate for my genealogy site. I’m learning as I go!

    Woah, I’m impressed with their Halloween layout!

    If you’re a loner in your neck of the woods, come visit Dance and Devour. It’s a site about four people (Raven, Claire, Seth, and Ty) with their own unique stories. Our mission is simple; we want to make you smile. If you’ve had a bad day, Dance and Devour is the place to go to turn your terrible time into a bundle of laughs and joy. We encourage unique people to submit their creative works and make new friends in our network. At Dance and Devour, you create and alter-ego and live the way you’ve always wanted to live. You can be whatever you want to be in our world.

    We currently have no active members, excluding the four moderators who constantly post stuff for our members to check out. We would love to be featured on Example Site Wednesdays for some publicity and traffic. We have no budget, and it’s been difficult for us to promote and advertise our website for free. All we want is for our faces to be noticed, our voices to be heard, and our words to be remembered.

    The Dance and Devour Team

    Can I please have my website as the Sample site for this week? Its http://izytron.com/ Its a place for teens to hang out and socialize, much like Facebook and Myspace. I have a custom template and I spend at least 4 hours everyday on my site editing and adding new content. Please choose me! And by the way, I had the login bar at the top first, and alot of sites copied mine.

    Hi! I used many apps on my site. The main app is the “arcade” I got from heyzap. I installed a guestbook. so far, no members. but I have heard some people snoopin’ around, looking fore some AWSOME video games, via the new “clicky” service. Webs has done much for me.
