Sound Plaza compares HiFi speakers throughout the UK. Including price, specs and other info such as reviews. It mainly focuses on floor standing and bookshelf speakers.Sound Plaza
I originally created it due to my interest in HiFi gear. Improving my PHP skills were high on the agenda and I loved the idea of getting a big database full of speaker reviews, specs and other interesting info.
Once accumulated I could then play around with the styling of the content and optimising it for UX, SEO and generally act as a test bed for all my digital marketing questions.
Given that the HiFi industry isn't exactly the most lucrative of them all, I would say that this will stay as a side project and I probably won't push it too far. I may look into hiring some external help from the Philippines to keep things up to date whilst trying to keep costs to a minimum. This could also open up the site to a wider range of product reviews/ specs/ prices etc. Also going 'international' could be interesting and that will open things up to bigger traffic.
Turning it off would be a shame but keeping it as it is isn't exactly providing the best service. It's a tricky one!
Once I have this site up to date and Spectrum revamped, then Sound Plaza will get a new lick of paint.
