New Website Launch

New website home page

My website,, now runs using Magento ecommerce software that makes the website easier to view and use on mobile and handheld devices. The new website went live May 4, 2015, after an intensive three-month conversion effort on my part with the help of talented programmers from Hens Teeth Network, my long-time internet service provider.

The new website software also provides the increasingly complex product data required by Google merchant feeds so my site’s advertising can effectively compete with other online advertisers and my products can rank well in internet searches. Additional new website features include:

  • A slide show of featured products
  • Larger product photos
  • The ability to zoom in on product photos to better see details
  • Pictures of best sellers
  • The ability to compare products side by side
  • The ability to search and display category products by price range
  • The ability to save products to an online wish list
  • All products related to each work of art are available in a single product record
  • A slide show of pictorial testimonials from SteedBeads customers
  • The ability to submit SteedBeads testimonials and accompanying photos
  • Free shipping for orders over $75.00
  • Free shipping for orders shipped to Elko, NV, area addresses
  • The ability to become a registered customer to speed checkout, store addresses, save wishlist, and review previous orders
  • Gift wrapping services
  • Free gift message with order
  • Optional PayPal Express Checkout to speed the already easy checkout process

The website conversion was expensive, but necessary to be competitve in today’s online marketplace and prepared for its future requirements. Please check it out and leave a comment below or let me know what you think of the new website. Do also submit bug reports and suggestions for the website’s improvement. I would especially welcome online purchases of my creations to help pay for this expensive project! ;o}
