It’s a nightmare!
Because I am in the midst of changing my portfolio I also have to change my website and so last week I began the process with a phone call to Vista Print, the company I use to build my site. I like the service they offer and the easy to use and easy to build things that come with the service like business cards and brochures. That is until now.
My dilemma was that I wanted to rebuild my site in the background (out of your view) until I had all the elements together for the launch of a new site. After some figuring I thought we had a good option but when it came to doing the work it was harder to change the design of my site than I thought so I called back to find another option. They offered a free service of a rebuild for me, so I took that believing they might come up with a better look than I seemed to be able to achieve on my own.
Wrong! The new site they sent to me used the same colour schemes, but they changed the format and it was positively ugly. Thinking I still had a month before the site went live to fix their mess I proceeded to change what I didn’t like. Now I discover that because I started the fix it went live.
I suppose what I’m doing besides complaining about the service I got is apologizing for the dreadful look of my website. Another long conversation with someone is required to fix the problem and I’m not sure it can be fixed. It is a very time-consuming task to build a web site. If you don’t see me for a couple of days you will know what I’m doing. On the phone with tech advisers.
Wish me luck.
Back to the phone and see if I can find a solution.
