WWW.LINGSCARS.COM is possibly the worst looking “professional” web site that I have ever seen.
It is mainly for car leasing – but it may also cause headaches, epileptic fits and nervous breakdowns due to its cacophony of links, plethora of adverts and myriad of colours all assaulting the person looking at the site….
The thing is, it may hit you like a rainbow painted truck – but like that rainbow painted truck, you’ll always remember it.
I originally mentioned her site to a friend of mine on Twitter (Daiv Russell http://www.ninja-nerd.com/) – and I mentioned her as an example of a bad web site…. BUT now I will go back on my words…. (I live and learn!).
Ling actually posted a comment on Daiv’s website about the explosion to the visual senses that her site is…. and the figures are amazing….
…70,000 uniques this month, FYI. Best ever figures. Most UK car dealer websites struggle to do 2,500 and that’s with loads of adwords.
Would YOU remember my site in 2-years? I do my utmost to build emotional goodwill. And the customers (potential) who move on really save me a lot of time dealing with people who will give me grief.
I am very busy day-to-day. I want customers on my wavelength who don’t take life so seriously – it’s only a car, not life or death.
And which other UK car website owner would ever notice you have been twittering and blogging, never mind bother to reply?…
You know what – she’s right. If all websites were like hers, then it would be a total and utter disaster – but as she is the only one (that I can think of) that has a site like that – and it really does stand out! Looking back, she is the first person I turn to when I look up lease cars – she’s the first person I point people to if they need lease cars – and now she’s getting even more hits because I mentioned her site for its “badness”…… She hasn’t done too badly by me has she!!!
As an update – Ling has pointed me to a small link on her site (very small) that makes the front page look sane!!!
This one is actually physically painful!!!! (Warning – flashing images)
So Ling, I take my hat off to you – Your site works wonders, it pulls people in and has proven to be very successful for you – and that’s what counts! Congratulations!
