    check out www.craneva.com and let me know what you think. There are some things I'd like to change but I'd love some opinions

    It looks really good Steve. How did you put the web page together?

    I didn't. I'm paying for it. There is grammer and punctuation issues. He probably copied what I sent him and pasted it. I don't think it highlights the truck as much as I had wanted. I had thought about the engineering drawings and load charts as my home page. Maybe they didn't pan out like I had wanted. Waiting for an email back. I feel like it sends the message of climbing more than crane work. Thanks for the feedback though

    It looks very professional. I’m sure you will get it dialed in. A website is next on my list as well.

    You highlighted my first thoughts Steve with your comments here already. I personally found the "About" page difficult to read, just didn't flow smoothly. You did the right thing by hiring a guy, but he needs to fix a few things. I agree it was probably cut and pasted from your words. Nothing wrong with them for the rest of us, but I think the clientele you are hoping for is going to be critical of the little stuff.

    Obviously no disrespect to you Steve and as anyone who reads my writings anywhere can see, I am the last person who should ever comment about the proper use of the English language. :birra:

    Need some explosions with fire trucks screaming in. Dudes doing 100' wheelies why some music plays and the girls all dance. And a puppy. Everyone likes puppies.

    I'll definitely check out your site when it's viewable. Did you decide on a logo yet?

    I will. The logo I went with was the one with the boom on it.

    I don't see the word 'hoisting' anywhere. You seem to use 'lift' consistently. Maybe some of both would be better.

    Couple typo's. Otherwise, Looks Good.


    I don't understand the website name.


    Is it like, "I can crane whattevva!"?

    Websites aren't all about technical exactness. Web searching stuff, SEO stuff, that I don't know about, is also involved.

    Seems like you need to start an advertising campaign to all the tree services in your area. Letter of introduction type of thing.

    HVAC companies, spa companies, arena builders, Kboom rides for kids parties, ...

    Totally agree. I have already started my campaign. Had reached out to 25 key companies a while ago via email. I will do so formally once the site is up as well.
