Please may I introduce myself. I am the co-founder of www.castus.co.uk
the design company behind the site you are ‘discussing’ on this thread.
Feedback is always appreciated and I would like to thank you all for taking the time to share your thoughts. I will review all comments with the management of Chapter One Promotions but would like to seek clarification on one or two points.
Could you please explain this to me in more depth. Books available are shown at www.chapteronepromotions.com/book-cellar/index.htm
. Or do you mean a counter of how many have been sold so far?
Hello Dear Writer…discourage readers and potential clients
The site has a warm and inviting colour scheme with a rapidly growing community supporting it through the private log in area. To support this a ‘personal’ approach has been taken. Part of me agrees with what you say as I advise clients to use the initial <h1> tag (technical talk for main heading) to summarise in a few words what the page is about.
Obviously this is subjective and what is right for one person may not ‘switch on’ every body else. Can anyone else offer their opinion on what they read into this.

Regarding the comments about the sites copy, as previously stated I am a web dev so am not in a position to comment (please ignore any mistakes within this post) but will pass your thoughts onto the management of COP.
There is also a lot of feedback that I have not asked for further comments about. Please do not think that I have chosen to ignore it, I will review all in full.
One thing that I would like to point out at this stage is that comments as direct as some of those above can break an SME. Fortunately COP is already established with a loyal community behind it. The next site that suffers the same treatment may not be so lucky.
Whilst I understand that forums are fantastic to share news on scams or malicious traders, to my knowledge no one has suffered a bad experience with COP.
Please bear this in mind the next time you are putting finger to keyboard.
These are the views of Chris Harpin and not Castus Design or the client in which he is supporting.
