Marmite does alright and thats a love/hate thing too
Thanks for warning people to be sceptical as i am only affiliate of this site pal. I am the UK partner for the company and that is why it is called www.sitepal.co.uk. I started out as a affiliate for the product and with years of working for next to nothing i was given the partnership by Oddcast. I would like to thank you for your comments as they help us to improve the product for all.
I am sorry if my sceptism is missplaced this time.
This forum suffers from a high level of spammers, and so I have become more and more suspicious of anyone who makes claims to increase sales and then sends people through to a website with an affiliate code divert.
I can see that your offering is a genuine product and you were honestly looking for feedback so I am sorry for any offence.
However my comments on it still stand and I'm sure we discussed it on another thread on this forum which you may be able to find and see what we said when we didn't know you were going to read it!
Good luck with your business.
Following on from SillyJokes comment about having a button to switch in on, my thoughts are that it could be useful as a Support tool for guiding people through a complicated part of a website ... which is where I am considering its use
You lost my attention within the first few lines of your marketing spiel
I too surf with sounds off.
Well i listen to loud Music so always have my volume up, when i hit a site with one of the talking charectors on and they speak and it always comes through the speakers really loud and i end up with my head through the ceiling!
Im like that have my PC pluged into a 220 watt amplifier.
We chose to remove the lovely lady from our pages after just 2 days.

Thanks for trying out the product.
Feedback from clients and potential clients was very clear
One thing I would add is that just because it didn't work for us - doesn't mean it won't work for others.
The customer services team replied very quickly to my email and assured me a refund would be with me within 24 hrs.
Thanks for trying out the product.
You will receive your refund so no need to worry there.
I want to be honest with all of you with regard to the sitepal product and thank you all for the feedback given so far. On Rob site the character was using text2speech which is ok but can never sound like the real voice. I would suggest that from the sites i have seen your own voice works best with the product.
With regard to the character becoming boring and annoying i do agree with those comments. However there is a feature to stop the character repeating itself when you return to that page. I have found that from feedback on other sites most do not like the animated cartoon look of the characters. Some feel that this look does not fit with their business image and will affect sales. There are now New photo realistic characters that are far better for that professional look.
I think that is clear from everyone that you want the choice to select character to speak and not have it start talking as soon as you go to a site. I do agree with this myself and have passed on the comments back to Oddcast in New York.
Overall this is a New product and it is early days - maybe in a few years it will be gone or with better improvements it may be used by many who knows?
I do think that it will used more when you can upload your photo and the software turns you into a virtual character
I think it has massive potential once it is developed more.
Yes that service to use your own picture does look very promising. I'll keep an eye on your service and see how it progresses.
There is a program already made called DigiMask. It allows you to create a digital head of yourself using 2 images one of your face and one of the side of your head.
This can then be turned into a 3d model and be used in gaming and potentially could be used with this SitePal software, i think you should get into contact with digimask.
The technology is impressive if a little creepy...I can see how it may work on some sites though, particularly educational sites!
Make Rabbits and un-realistic pandas - they'd go down great with small kids. You could probably get some amazing response from sites dealing with small children. Try a site like CartoonNetwork, that has its "membership" areas. They might be interested.
But replace the american accent. That wouldn't go down so well on an English site Give it a really strong west-country accent.
