I looked at the site, and it doesn't quite say that. It seems misleading to me. "Insta" plus "ship."
"We do not promise shipping dates. ."
Instaship... yeah right...

+1 to both points.

Jerry ....

Use the usrockets.com domain name (or have something simple like usrockets.com/store that redirects to the store). People very rarely type a URL verbatim into the address bar. Most of the time they enter what they remember into the address bar or Google. So, they actually do a search for the web site. A simple URL is easier to recall and more likely get the person to the site if they do a search.

Photos are a big issue with small manufacturers. I know from experience that it takes some effort to get good photos (and, of course, you have to have good models to photograph). But, good photos are important. (And, you might "cheat" by using 3D renderings.)

I'm just stating what he has advertised in the past. You need to relax.

I would make the InstaShip banner smaller and include pictures of the finished rockets that are in the ad. Also, try to set up and advertise a simpler url like USRockets.com

If you can work out a deal with K'Tesh from TRF, he could make up some really good 3D renderings using OpenRocket.

See, this is why I seek feedback from folks I respect.

K'Tesh hired on request.

To Wolfram v. Kiparski I respond we do not require advance payment and we do not promise ship dates but the average shipment goes out in 2-3 days. Average. I remember you from rmr.

I did not get that from the ad, but it's certainly a unique method, which would stand out from the competition. Perhaps this could be more clear in in the ad.

It's not in that particular ad, but Jerry has posted the terms and it also says it on his website.
