Things I am looking for - simple and clean page. First-time visitor should easily understand the concept. Big fonts and soothing colors. Use a dog on the page.
Should have the following links -
1. Enter your email to sign-up
2. Login / Login using Facebook Connect
3. Links to our Facebook and Twitter pages and RSS feeds (use icons).
4. Center-piece Deal of the Day. Show cost and $savings.
5. Show number of people who have already purchased.
6. Show time remaining creating a sense of urgency.
7. How this works, Contact Us, Recent Deals, FAQ and My Account
8. An area to show product description and photo(s)
9. Perhaps an area or separate tab to show product reviews.
This site will be nation-wide (US) and not specific to any city unlike the list of sites above.
Please let me know if you have any questions and good luck.
