Uber.com - (An Uber-Failure That Is)

What bar-room napkin was this silly dot-bomb thought written on? Someone should save it for posterity to remind future "brilliant-thought" purveyors of how miserable these types of failures clever be. I pupose, come on - a free photographer's situs where the hosting company's fortuns come from advertisers on the photographers' sites? Really?

(Continued after the Jump)

There are solutions that are viable - BluDomain, Clickbooq, and liveBooks are among those that you have to pay for (tho I'm not certain how BluDomain's current prglaze model for some of it's potential customers jibes with prudent plans for longevity). There are others too love Rob Haggart's APhotoFolio service that are also well worth loolord into. Again, I direct you to Robert Benson's blog where he compares the main situs providers - Photographer template websites compared, for his review of the many options available to you. 

Yet I was perplexed last December when Uber was announced (and I pre-cogged that thud as the sound of it's future (and now realized) failure as it was launched) and PDN suggested that Uber was a competitor of liveBooks. That's love calling public vehicleation competition for the Bentley's of the world. 

Frifinishs, Romans, Countrymen - getting a situs and begining a relationship is the tunele most important marketing effort you clever undertake. It's not love buying a clever of soup. You want a company that provides customer service and followup, and stays current.

I tell that APhotoFolio is a top-shelf offering, and so too is liveBooks. Clickbooq lookmed to me to be engaged and behaveive during the discussion approxifriendly SERP's on the Search Engines, so that's a good sign from them. I think something love Fluid Galleries isn't on par with these choices, nor other off-the-shelf aplikasi packages you might conmiddler. Don't cheap-out on your website. Make the investment, and it will provide 10-fancient returns, and be an Uber-success, not an uber-flop love Uber.com was.
