NuTang.com - the Ultimate Weblog Community
Another good idea, that could be improved.
NuTang is a blog site that allows users to collect money based on how popular their blog is. The siteâ€™s revenue is generated by Yahoo ads, at the bottom of the page. If your blog is viewed a lot, you generate more money.
NuTang is invite only, so unless you know someone who has a journal there, good luck getting a code. Not that itâ€™s a big loss. I have been using it for a couple of weeks, (a few posts here and there) and it appears to be exactly like every other blog site you could use, and possibly even lacking in some style points. There arenâ€™t very many templates, and unless you know their proprietary code, then you are wasting your time by making your own.
The money you â€śearnâ€ť is a very small amount. In roughly a month, Iâ€™ve made 26 cents. So, if you are thinking of joining the site based on that detail, donâ€™t. You canâ€™t even cash out until youâ€™ve made at least $20.
The community itself, seems to be comprised of rather intelligent people. There are, as with any community, a few morons here and there, but overall, good people. The â€śInfamous Shoutboxâ€ť gives you some added exposure, as long as you are active on the site, and can keep up with what scrolls through there.
The ability to recommend posts allows the other readers to make your posts more â€śfavorableâ€ť and possibly gain enough momentum to get onto the front page.
Overall, NuTang seems to be just another blogging site, that is lacking in features that the big boys have, such as detailed templates, and a larger following. The unique feature that would entice someone to join, doesnâ€™t generate enough money to warrant leaving your current blog behind.
- 2 out of 5 for design
- 3 out of 5 for features
- 4 out of 5 for stability
- 3 out of 5 overall
yea.... I think we all need 2 fix that ASAP... lol

Maybe (?) the reason for lack of customers is the fact that it looks more like a web design site than a hosting site, which tend to be more conservative in appearance (photo of man standing next to uninteresting hardware, etc, etc). Therefore it's too much overload for people looking for hosting?

Looks good.. actually too good, more like a web designer's page than a hosting company..
remember your visitors ar looking for hosting not design

As for a web hosting company.. emm.. pardon for being frank, it looks more like a personal homepage to me, especially when i saw forums such as "Relationships", "Asia Pop" on your business site, kind of weird but who knows your customer might like it.. a new generation host?

It is a good looking website, but totally wrong for a webhosting company. At first I thought it was a personal portfolio site for a webdesigner. The webhosting link is a small font 1 link in the menu and the domain made me think it was a wutang fan site or something. I'm not going to get into the other stuff (i.e. forums) as they have been pointed out earlier in this thread.
Get a new more webhosting related domain. You don't need to get a domain that has "hosting" in it, but at least nothing that remind if a hip hop (rap?) group.
Make a totally new website that is a lot more simple, clean and that looks a lot more boring (business like).
Only have webhosting/development related forums in your message board.
That's all I can think of right now.

I agree with Mr. Amazon. The domain comepletely doesnt sound like a hosting company.
The site design is very nice, I'm not a fan of flash, but I like to see nice looking flash sites :). If you created that site yourself, you should concentrate in the web design industry, rather than try and fail in the web hosting market :D.
While in a sub page, I think you shouldshow the text for each green button link. I know you're using the ALT to display what the link is, but sometimes people don't wait for the ALT tag to show up, some people might not even see the green circles as a button to your other pages. You can find an area on the left and make an image change with the section name on it, as the mouse moves over the green cricle.

Thanks a lot for the feedback.
The reason I designed the site like I did is 'cause my site also offers web design. I will actually make most of my money through the web design, since I'm a reseller.
When I bought domain nutang.com, I just was thinking of something different and easy to remember.
I'm gonna modify the design I have now for nutang, keeping in mind all your suggestions. i agree, the navigation is a bit poor, and more on the abstract, than conservative side.
After I'm finished, I'll put a link in this topic again. I hope you will all repost suggestions and criticisms. ;)
Some more questions: do you think it would help if i offered webdesign/hosting special packages? e.g. 50 percent of web design with purchase of any hosting deals.
Also, how competitive do you think my prices are? This is actually about as low as I can offer, since I resell.
For the forums, I will remove the forums to the other sites.
I used macromedia fireworks4.
Thanks again for the feedback! :D

Great site, i don't like the colours though, to bright.

Great site designing.I suggest that you should also start the webdesign business.
Best of luck.
