Welcome to our new website. Over our 10 years in the grilling tool e-commerce business this is only our 3rd major site design overhaul and it is coming with a new focus. After months of working on the back-end I finally decided to launch it as a valentine’s day gift to my wife, after all without her any of this wouldn’t exist. We will be tweaking the look and adjusting it as we go but it is fully functional so please enjoy and we would love your feedback.
Our new focus:
Great Grilling Made Easy
We are shifting our attention towards our blog and YouTube channel because it has been getting a lot of attention. What we will be trying to do is: focus on showing/telling you how to grill foods properly and with only a few ingredients turn it into an awesome gourmet meal. This site is built on a WordPress engine built for blogging. All the blogging links are to your left. We occasionally may post something outrageous or silly, that will mainly be to entertain ourselves.
We will continue to sell all of the awesome grilling tools that we always have. With this new site we can actually place the items into the posts. This will minimize the 3rd party (Amazon and Google) ads that you have to see. All of the links to our store are to the right.
We want to hear from you:
This site supports comments, product reviews and easy social media links you can login without registering from Facebook or twitter. So tell us what you think and please like and share what you find here. Just a couple of rules: No political comments and do not abuse other users. We have to approve comments before they will so up. We are not above criticism but after slamming us please explain why your way is better. People will be reading to learn.
We are using a three different site monitoring-security software’s. Each one is designed to watch different parts of this site in real-time to keep you safe and secure while ordering or just visiting. If that is not enough for you the site is also scanned every few hours for malware. We now force SSL. What that means to you is everything you do and see on this site is done over a secure connection. Sacrifices had to be made so we gave up our cool little icon in the browser bar for a padlock.
Responsive and Built for Speed:
One of the main reasons for changing up the site was so it would look better on your phone or tablet. Our old site had a mobile version but it looked like a website from the 80’s. With mobile in mind we chose a template that was built for speed, so those pages load fast. This is function over form but well worth it I think.
In other news:
We have been selected to participate in a program called Retail Revival sponsored by E-Bay and the city of Akron Ohio. We are exited about this and really do not know what to expect. What I know about it now is that E-bay will be hosting a series of seminars and webinars about selling online and how to sell on E-bay. “Retail Revival will provide Akron startups and established retailers with services, training, and marketing to help them expand their businesses through the eBay platform.” We are so excited to be a part of this look for blog posts about it along the way.
Thanks for stopping by
