Do You Suck At Ideas To Expand Your Aviation Hobby

Sat Aug 15, 2009 10:47 pm

I don't know if this is the right forum and I am certainly not trying to advertise anything - so here goes...   

I am attempting to put together a small website to offer hardware for sale to enhance the personal flight sim experience (this is my first foray into this). I am trying to come up with ideas for website content, in addition to the actual item for sale. I would like any constructive ideas as to what I can add to peek interest. Thank you.

More detailed descriptions, product reviews, product Frame results with certain configurations. Just some that I can think of. Look at others site then set to make yourself different.

I reviewed some other sites during my research (I can't reveal their identities of course) and apart from the products they have for sale - they are very devoid of interesting and attention grabbing content!

Quoting USAirways787 (Reply 2):

Thank You USAirways787... the input is greatly appreciated.

Again I researched sites similar to what I am looking to do, but there isn't any real content on those sites to capture the attention of visitors... just an observation.

Besides visiting a site to make a purchase (be it a add-on DVD or a download), what other kind of information content do you think would arouse your attention (besides perhaps the most obvious - reviews of the latest aircraft add-on or airport scenery)?

I have no purchased some flight sim hardware in a long time. I just do not have the time with school I think when I am out of school when ever I finish and have a job I will have some spare money and maybe buy a nice hardware add on or two. So when I think about buying stuff number one is large detailed pictures of the hardware. Second I think videos would be great showing how it works, the lights, the movement, sounds etc.. There should be reviews both professional and from people who have the product. As long as it has those things I would like the site.
