This week, we asked our Vistaprint Internet Marketing Facebook community
why their website was important to them, and we received a number of great comments. It was difficult to pick just one site to feature!
The winning site for this week was submitted by Donan Mendez. Donan writes that his site
is an important educational tool, that helps spread the word about his business, Mendez Painting & Remodeling: "[The site] is a way our customers can learn about our services, photos samples and to
get new customers," he writes.
We agree...the homepage

Every Wednesday, we choose a Website We Love
to feature here, on our blog, and on our Facebook page
. This week, we asked our Facebook community how long they've had their site, and why they started it. As always, we received a number of great responses, but we had to pick just one!

When it comes to describing her site in three words, she says Petal Pusher's Wreaths & Designs
is a "dream come true." We loved that answer, and her site... especially the beautiful imagery, easy-to-shop homepage
, informative blog
, and numerous, detailed seasonal wreath categories (on display in the left-hand navigation). We think it's a site well done! Congrats, Amanda!

site in just three words?
This week, we asked the Vistaprint Internet Marketing Facebook
community about what one word comes to mind first when thinking about their website. As usual, there were some amazing responses and Websites to choose from--which makes choosing just one difficult! In the end, we picked Jessica Peltz and Myst Mobile Spray Tanning
as this week's Website We Love
The word Jessica used to describe her site was "resourceful," and we think it's a word that highlights what we liked about the site well. We were impressed by the amount of information found on the site, and how well the navigation pointed to and explained specific services. Whether looking at Frequently Asked Questions
or Scheduling An Appointment
, the site is well organized, and easy for visitors to use. Congrats, Jessica!
