I finally got round to creating a little website/shop thingy where so I can make my stuff available to a wider audience. I would greatly appreciate any feedback so if you get a chance please have a look and post comments here.
the site is http://www.modlab.co.uk

I didn't have a huge amount of time so I used a bit of free software which has a good CMS on the back end for managing the catalog etc.

Edit: I am looking for feedback on stuff that's not working, plain wrong or is difficult to use and any negatives or positives. Go on be honest!

Congrats!

I like the layout, and it looked good on my Nokia.

The pages seemed a bit slow, but not extraordinarily so.

@mhectorgato - Yeah the performance isn't great, I haven't enabled disk or mem cache yet as i need to get the hosting service to enable it on the server for me.

@Justin - Excellent news. I'm going to be adding more ModLab modules too over the next few months plus building out the bargain bin etc.

There's more categories than products. Big things planned? Smiley

I was drinking the other day, and thinking while drinking... There's http://www.modlab.co.uk, there's http://www.ingenuitymicro.com/, then there's my site which is, thankfully, not open yet, GHI creations section, and probably there's more sites where somebody sells a few hand-made Gadgeteer modules. A webshop with 1-3 modules doesn't get much attention, and, unless somebody quits his/her daytime job, those small sites will never get its product list populated.

Maybe we should all go under one hood? That should benefit everyone, I think, by both attracting customers and spreading Gadgeteer spirit. Tindie.com? Ebay?

@Simon from Vilnius - thinking and drinking can be a dangerous habit Wink. But I've already been thinking long the same lines. The more of us that make and sell modules the better.
We all know our base costs and we should work with a recommended sale price but always have a reseller price too that way we can all make something buy selling others modules too. Great idea. Maybe we should start an offline discussion about this ?? Any other module makers interested??

I'd also be interested. Being based in Indonesia some people are a little skeptical on dealing with this country even though my company is 100% foreign owned and I have big oilfield service companies as my clients.

It would be great to have a European based sales point so count me in. I've a few more ideas other than the LCD that could be added to the list if I had a sales outlet.
