“The Big Reveal”…Revealed!

It’s FINALLY here!! The “Big Reveal” is a totally redesigned YouCanMakeThis.com website.  I think I’m about ready to “shout it from the rooftops” that it is done! 🙂  We started this project back in early Spring (even before the “Think Spring” challenge!) 

Without sounding too much like a techno-geek (lol!) it may take awhile for everyone’s internet providers to be updated to point to the new website.  This usually takes at least 12 hours, but will be done within the next day or two at the latest. You’ll know you’re at the new site when it says, “Welcome to the NEW YCMT!”

So what are the new features? Well, we’ve been listening to YOUR feedback for the past year and have strived to implement that in this new redesign.  Here’s what you’ll find:

  • Tons of new  categories and SUB-categories (much easier to find what you’re looking for!)
  • SEARCH feature
  • WISHLIST! (A HUGE request from customers!)
  • We will now reward you with YCMT PURCHASE POINTS!! This is the coolest feature! For every dollar you spend, the computer automatically calculates a point. Then you can use those points to purchase other eBooks! It’s easy to do and you’ll find more details on the website.
  • Easier way to submit “I Made This!” photos!! (Check out that section…it’s UPDATED! YEA!) And if you sent me one and it’s not there, please send again…I may have missed it through all the emails of pictures being sent in.
  • Easier way to submit product TESTIMONIALS!
  • Lower prices throughout the site!
  • YCMT-TV!! This is still “in the works” but I think you’re going to love it! More video throughout the entire site, too!
  • “You Can Make a Difference!”  A new way to raise funds for special causes. You’re going to love it.

Be sure to watch the 2 minute segment to find out how YOU can make a difference for our first charity, The Children’s Miracle Network. Also, click on the tour of the new site. I’ll show you how to log in with a FREE user account so that you can have access to all the new features.
