So this is my new site, Champagne Gifts, this little link should get the site kick started. I have got a few pages up detailing various champagne related articles, and covered everything from personalised gifts right through to ice buckets and anything else I could think of that related to sparkling wine.
The site design is fairly minimal, this is intentionally so, I like the idea of letting the text articles speak for themselves and encouraging people to click off when they find something that interests them. I have tried to keep the site informative and useful, not only do I want the site to come across as a useful resource but I do actually want people to find the site useful for helping to chose a gift! I do get annoyed by sites that are just overrun with links and ads. As a user I click back quickly from such sites so I hope this new Champagne site gets the right balance between useful and commercial.
I must admit I registered this domain before thinking too carefully about competition. Having looked at the competing sites it might be hard to get anywhere with this one. Looks like there are a few PR3 sites to beat and although possible it is much harder. Ideally you need to compete with PR0 or PR1 sites for “easy” results. So on this basis I’m working on a couple of other ideas right now, but lets see how this one goes!
