How Do We Look? We’d Like To Hear From You!

Hello Searchers!

It’s been about a month since PCHSearchandWin got a brand-new look!

Actually, around that same time I was also in need of a new “do” so I found myself perusing the pharmacy aisles in search of the perfect shade of “do-it-yourself” hair dye.

It seemed simple enough. I donned the enclosed plastic gloves and followed the directions …

Imagine my surprise when I dried my hair to discover that what I thought was going to be a lovely shade of brown was instead a funky shade of red! Please take no offense my red-headed friends !  It’s just not what I was expecting … and apparently a change my two school-aged children were NOT comfortable with. In the following days I endured such comments as:

“Mom, your hair almost looks PINK!”

“Mom, WHY did you do that?”

“Mom, could you PLEEAASEE get your OLD HAIR back?”

However, unlike my hair debacle,  I am happy to report that the initial responses to PCHSearch&Win’s new look were HIGHLY FAVORABLE!

Now, about a month later, we’d love to get your thoughts on the PCHSearchandWin homepage redesign. Personally, I find the new approach more visually pleasing and I like the fact that the featured contest is easily identifiable. I also think it’s cool that the homepage changes every day … but it always includes details of great prize opportunities!

Here’s an example of before:

 Old Search&Win homepage

And after:

 New Search&Win homepage

Fellow searchers, please tell us:

1. What do you like best about the new site design?

2. Do you find it easier to identify the contests available?

3. Does it make you want to search more? Why or why not?

4. Do you have any other feedback that you’d like to offer?

Please take a few moments and respond.  I promise I’ll share your thoughts with my friends at PCHSearchandWin.

Have a GREAT weekend!

Elaina R.

    Hi Clifton,

    What should you search for? Anything! Just use PCH Search & Win the same way you’d use a regular search engine, like Google or Yahoo. Looking for a birthday gift? A recipe? Doing research for a home improvement project or a school paper? The Internet is the place to find whatever you’re looking for, and PCH Search & Win can help.

    Here is a URL that may be helpful: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iPAb7_6uTEQ

    Hope this helps!

    Regards,
    Rod @ PCH

I use a certain brand of hair color, I tried a different brand one time and instead of brown I ended up with coal black. My daughter thought I was going goth.
Sometimes change is not good. The PCHsearch and win sites’ new look in my opinion is good. It’s bright and easy to read. It has the flare of being updated but not downgraded.

Carolyn Lockhart said...

forgive me for not knowing, however,what do I type in on the PCH Search Site to enter. Is it a secret?

[REPLY TO THIS POST]
    Victoria At PCH said...

    Carolyn,

    You can type in anything that is of interest to you into the search bar. You should use PCHSearch&Win just as you would use any other search engine like Google, Yahoo, or Bing. Your first search gives you an entry into the PCH Sweepstakes, and the next 25 searches enter you for a chance to win the PCHSearch&Win prizes of that day.

    I hope this helps!

1. The new design ROCKS..! I love how the Prize Patrol and the balloons POP! The way the rays of light blue surround the PP throws in excitement!

2. Yes, anyone can clearly see the contest available along with the important date!

3. Sure it makes one want to search because it looks inviting..

4. I really LOVE the PCH Search & Win BLOG look! The magnifying glass on the word blog is cool the colors, the stars… way to go! Nice designs! (I never did like that ‘orange’ search bar!) OK, so those are my thoughts in answer to your request. :D

    Dear Guillermo,

    Each entry has the same chance of winning, whether processed with an order or not. If you do not wish to make a purchase with your entry, you may click the “Continue” or “Skip” button on each page until you see that your entry has been confirmed.

    Best Wishes,

Hey Elaina {waving}

I love what the creative team has done. :)

1. What do you like best about the new site design?

I most love the size&colors because they serve as the first impression when I visit. So when the colors you choose shout, “Party over HEEEERE!” it’s believable. lol…the fun feels big, really big like a major BLOWOUT kinda fun. lol…it’s really not like we’re being invited as much as the pch party has happened upon us the moment we see it. nobody just clicks away from that search page, because it’s like you gotta climb out of the party search box just to close it out. that’s why people can’t even think of what they really searched for, cause all you wanna do is click into the box and “FIND,” search for a reason to STAY a while. lol…it’s cool.

2. Do you find it easier to identify the contests available?

yes I do. the pictures of what is being offered as a win like the house for winning 3mil to fix it up. like the green truck for winning a vehicle, and posting the amount super large helps me remember WHAT sweepstakes I’m aiming for. you hit them all because you can’t confuse them, and they all COUNT YOU IN ALREADY, and you have to NOT play just to get out of the game. just think of all the moaning when folks don’t win….it’s proof we’re hooked, and you are very good at what you do. {yep, pet yourselves on the back creative team. you’ve done your homework. lol]

3. Does it make you want to search more? Why or why not?

I think it mainly encourages the first search, but if you forget what you saw after your first search, your done for the day. in fact once the first search unfolds it’s like the music stops and a regular search page is there. ho-hum. I think if there was something more calling like unto when the search box first appears, something at the top of the page, maybe next to the box. pch flowers,or colorful balloons people may search more because the feel of the part carries over just enough for the searcher to remember why they are there. to search and to win. it’s the win people most wanna think about …I think. :)

4. Do you have any other feedback that you’d like to offer?

other than offering people one or two fun topics to search at first showing, can’t think of a way to get them to search more. your offering a couple topics to help them begin to springboard their own fun things to search. they may hang around a little long on their pch search page. {smiling} they might.

ok, hope I helped my pch creative team out there! be good to your team Todd cause their great! bye Elaina lol

Hi Elaina!
hope you’ve fixed your hair by now?!

1. What do you like best about the new site design?

I like the deep background colors!

2. Do you find it easier to identify the contests available?

Yes, contest info is even clearer / concise.

3. Does it make you want to search more? Why or why not?

Yes. the bright in your face colors & hard to miss search bar seem to motivate me more. ha ha ha.

4. Do you have any other feedback that you’d like to offer?

A. have you ever considered including your mascot Edwin on the site somewhere? might be a nice addition.

B. Re. the “old” pchsearch, I enjoyed seeing the graphics of what was on the “back burner.”
