Describe your website.
Water Rockets are a lot of fun. They are also very useful for educational purposes. I wanted this website to make people aware that on this site, they can learn and purchase the best water rocket launcher in the world. There is nothing else even remotely close to the performance and quality of a Bigfoot Water Rocket Launcher.
Also, this site will be a premier exhaustive resource of water rocket construction ideas and tips. I have about 40 more pages of water rocket construction ideas and tips about to be uploaded. This part of the website is free part for anyone to learn and enjoy.
Who is the target audience for your website?
Science and math teachers are my largest audience worldwide. Many have already been disappointed with other brands of launchers that easily break, are unsafe, and just don't launch the rockets more than 100 feet up. Also, many teachers don't want to be burned with buying junk, so being in the information age, they do research. Many other websites, including Science Olympiad, recommend and point to the Bigfoot Water Rocket Launcher as the best.
What is the advantage of your website over others?
This is both a business and a resource website. People can freely visit and learn all about building a huge variety water rockets.
Of course, I hope that as they visit, they might look at the other pages & buy a water rocket launcher, too.
Tell us a story about this website.
Actually, this Sandvox version of this website went live on March 6, 2016. For the last ten years, it's been a crippled up mess, yet I've been making a lot of sales anyway. So the content was substantial and able to meet the needs of my customers. But is was really an ugly website, till yesterday.
Why did you use this Sandvox design?
I picked the SQUARE PERCH BLUE design. Of course the blue goes with the "water" theme of my product. I also like the animated navigation menu.
What techniques did you use to build this website?
When generating the BUY NOW PayPal buttons, I found the application HyperEdit very helpful in injecting HTML code. In HyperEdit I was able to see both the HTML code and on the right I can see what it will look like on the web site.
Also BBEdit was helpful in cleaning out gremlins when doing copy and paste. It lets me also see the invisible characters.
