An all new www.Lifetime.com

www.Lifetime.comOver here at Lifetime Products Mission Control, we try to keep our flagship website up-to-date not only with the latest content, but also with the latest in techology and design.

When we visit websites we tend to like the ones that frequently update their content; have a clean, easy to use navigation scheme; and are fun to interact with. We think these kinds of sites encourage people to come back (that's called "repeat viewership" in web lingo) and to explore the site (that's called "multiple page views").

 So, we added some flash, we added some interesting articles, and much more before wrapping it all up in a fancy new design that we hope you'll love!

 Why don't you head on over to www.Lifetime.com, surf around a little bit, then come back here and let us know what you think!

Wow! That's an awesome website! I love how well you've separated the content (html) from the design (css)! The search engines must LOVE that!  Kudos to a job well done!

Hi!  I have a Lifetime shed (8x12) and truly appreciate its quality and function.  I have another location I would like to install a shed.  I am wondering if there are any future plans for a 10' series of vinyl sheds (the 8'series is too small, the 11' series too large)?  Specifically I would be interested in something close to 10x14?

Thank you.

How about listing/showing the shed accessories that are available for the shed interiors.  If I'm to buy a shed I want to know what's available before hand; not last minute or find out there out of stock.

Hey Roger! Thanks for the comment, and you're in luck!

I just got off the horn with our Sheds Expert in our Marketing Department.

We have two options that might work for you. We have a 10x8 Garden Building (www.buylifetime.com/.../PID-60005.aspx) and a 15x8 garden building (www.buylifetime.com/.../PID-6446.aspx).

These two would be the best options that we have available at this time.

Take a look at them an less us know what you think!

Susan! Thanks for the comments!

Speaking as one of the developers that worked first-hand on the new Lifetime.com website, I can tell you how difficult it is, at times, to write really well built page (pages that not just look good, but have a solid foundation). Separating content (xhtml) from design (css) was one of the goals of this version of the site. We're hoping it will not only help with load times (making the pages load faster) but also with search engines and screen readers as well.

Interestingly, even though we use Flash and dhtml throughout the site, it's still functional and readable without javascript or Flash turned on.

Thanks for the kudos! And thanks for the visit and comment! Why not subscribe to our feed while you're at it? (feeds.feedburner.com/Lifetime365)

John, thanks for your comment... I couldn't agree with you more. I'm excited to tell you that we are developing a flash piece to do exactly that. We will soon have all shed accessories, including details on the sheds and storage buildings that they are compatible with. These updates are coming soon to Lifetime.com.

After not visiting the blog or the corporate site for a while I have to say, well done! I'm impressed with the clean design, friendly copy, and overall appearance of the site. I must also say kudos to the continuity between the blog, corporate site and BuyLifetime.com site. It looks like ONE company now rather than three separate identities.

And I can FINALLY find and search for products across the sites. Nice job!! I'm excited to see what Lifetime will do next to make my life easier.

Tetherball Comes Around Again - In a New Portable Version
My son is in kindergarten this year and I love hearing what fun things he does in school each day since its all so new to him. Last week he came home and couldnt wait to tell me about gym class - they had played tetherball! Wow, does that bring back some memories. Apparently, Im not the only one that remembers standing in line during school recess waiting for my turn to take the big swing. A few weeks ago, one of the popular Twitter topics was #whenwewereyoung. (BTW, you can follow us on Twitter @Lifetime 365!) I was surprised to read how many people tweeted about tetherball memories! Some fond, some not so fond...guess it depends on if they were hit by the ball!?! Well, good news! Tetherball is no longer limited to school playgrounds! Lifetime has made a new portable tetherball you can have in your own backyard or drivew...

Backstage at Lifetime's Semi-Annual Meeting
Peering around the curtains, I began scanning the auditorium. It was quickly filling with around 800-900 Lifetime employees (judging by the seat capacity of 1000). Just a few more minutes until starting time... I told myself. Before I knew it, I felt the stage crew manager tapping my shoulder. Time to start he said. I looked at my laptop and queued up our opening video... here we go Welcome backstage to a behind the scenes look at Lifetimes Profit Sharing meeting 2011. If you read this blog 6 months ago, you know that our Profit Sharing meetingis a semi-annual tradition at Lifetime. This January marks the 44th time weve gotten together to share company updates, new products, and more often than not, a lovely bonus check for every employee in proportion to our profitability over the past 6 months! Pretty sweet employee perk, ...
