Update 24/12/2015

Hello again warriors,

I hope you are all having an awesome Christmas holiday! After all of your constructive criticism I decided to start re-build the site from scratch with all of your comments in mind.

As a result the site has been stripped down to it's bare essentials, and yet again I would very much value the opinion of yourselves on the new design.

Cheers guys and girls!

    Get rid of the massive blurry picture I say. It's even more annoying on mobile.

      Site doesnt suck no is fairly laid out modern responsive theme.

      I agree though background images could be better and needs more colour.

      Footer area seems a bit dull and could do with livening up a bit.

      Checkout process is quick but maybe add more payment methods.

      For this site would benefit with an SSL certificate and you could use Stripe.

      Hope this helps.
      Very good points, thank-you for that. I already have an SSL certificate on there, is it not visible. Also does anyone have any experience with Stripe VS PayPal?

      Cheers.

    First impression is good. But the blury image is not the best solution.

    I would also differientiate the pictures of products. Diifferent prices are not enough.
    Even a number on custom background would do the thing.

    And a proof of real person will help to gain trust of potential customers.

    These types of sites are all over the place. You can buy one on Flippa for next to nothing.

    With lots of competition, you can't expect anyone to buy from you unless you give them a really good reason.

    I hope you are not buying your own junky traffic to send to it, lol. That would be pretty counterproductive. Traffic purchased from those resellers is next to worthless.

    If you don't start treating this like a real business, with some personality, more authoritative content, maybe a real blog, etc, you'll probably never get real traffic - and therefore customers - on it.

      ^^^^^^^^^
      This is the truth. Sellers on Flippa sell these sites for a dime a dozen and the market is absolutely flooded with this type of site.

    I was wondering if some of you more experienced Warriors in this area may be kind enough to point a newbie in the general right direction? Mainly highlight anything that is wrong, constructive critisism and all that!

    I am more than happy to return that favor.

    There are many famous websites to buy social websites fake like/friends, there is no point to believe your new site to buy exact same products.

        I take it that this is because you don't understand the site context? We sell Twitter followers, Facebook likes etc.

        Anyone arriving on the site will already know this because they'll arrive via relevant search terms or adverts.

      Not sure about that one! The old site theme was a clothes store so it's possible that you saw some left over demo content.

      I've really tried to cut the purchase process down to the bare minimum, with this audience they know what they want and they want it fast - they don't care about anything else.

      I appreciate your input though, cheers!

      Not quite sure what you mean, could you expand a little?


      Also, how is everyone finding the site speed - are the pages loading fast enough? I have moved the site over to Digital Ocean so any input would we greatly appreciated.

        I think you've got it backwards here.

        The extra content is not to sell the concept. It is to persuade them to purchase from you.

        Besides graphic design, how exactly have you differentiated yourself from a thousand similar sites? And what do you expect search engines to grab onto without any unique content?

        It may look nice, but this is destined to be a lonely site without any usefulness or salesmanship attached.

      Good point, although the people buying these sorts of products REALLY do not care whatsoever about who's the best provider. To them all of these products are the same.

        My point exactly.

        Have you ever tried to sell a commodity service online before? What makes you think anyone will respond to this? What reason have you given them to buy from you?

        I get that you don't want to hear this, but have you ever heard the term lipstick on a pig? If not, google it.

        You have two big problems. The graphic design is not one of them.

        1) The product sucks. You probably won't be able to overcome that.
        2) The site does nothing to establish credibility, authority or relate-ability. Whatever market may exist for worthless traffic is very likely to skip you and find someone they feel they can trust.

          Quite the opposite actually, the whole reason I started this thread is to get feedback, and I thank you for it.

          As for the product, the product is good because I have successful launched, run and sold one of these sites in the past for automatic income of around £10,000 per month reliably.

          Just curious, have you checked the product pages? Any customers will not land on the homepage, they are going to be landing on the relevant page for their search term. It is on those pages that they will get all of the information they are looking for in order to be assured their purchase is a safe one.

    The problem for me is that I don't immediately understand what you're selling. I just see a load of huge social icons and assume you're desperate for friends. Nobody is attracted to desperate brah.

    BUT... if you had a major headline at the top, something "LIKE"...

    DO YOU HAVE TIME TO WASTE ACQUIRING FOLLOWERS... HELL NO!
    NOW YOU CAN BUY YOUR WAY TO AUTHORITY AND DOMINATE YOUR INDUSTRY OVERNIGHT!
    BE A CHAMP, NOT A CHUMP! ORDER YOUR INFLUENCE BELOW AND START WRECKING THE COMPETITION!

      Yeah good point! If you check the actual product pages (click the icons) you'll find out everything you need to know about the products.

      People arriving to the site will already know what they are looking for, because they will land on the product page that is ranked or advertised, not the homepage.

        It still needs to be made clearer. It will increase conversion and improve bounce rate. You can test it, and when you do, you'll see I'm right.

    Actually, I did not see the product pages. I was just looking at the home page.

    That does look a bit better to me, but the important elements that would build trust and authority are still missing. Are you building something to sell, or something to run?

      This is going to run, currently gaining momentum in Google UK rankings and should hit £10k per month anywhere in the next 1-3 months with a new investor coming on board in the next few weeks.

      I agree that some elements are missing, I definitely went for a more visual design than practical design in marketing terms - you are on the money.

          The site has been absolutely rammed with content in it's previous form, I opted for an all visual design to take away all of the needless 'salesmanship' everyone seems to keep mentioning.

          Users hitting my site know exactly what they want, the homepage will not be the main landing page. Each of the product pages has all of the information anyone needs to know about that product.

          So, I'm merely intrigued by what text/info people would put on the homepage if they were in my position, because I can't really see a place for it on the homepage. I'm trying to learn and better myself.

          No need to get so peeved about it.

    LOL I'm not angry or peeved about it. I just keep getting email notification about this post and had to put my 5 cents in. It's just an opinion. I'm not saying it for my benefit. I'm saying it for YOUR benefit. You need to be able to think for yourself. Not rely on what other people have to say as fuel for your dreams.

    No offence but this is a shady site anyway. Any site that sells twitter tweets, youtube views etc is shady as fook. Chances are you are selling these to people and buying the likes/views etc from somewhere else either you have a social media panel or from somewhere like fiverr/seoclerks etc and they are all shady as hell about how they get them. 9 times out of 10 they are using addmefast or something and after a while a lot of those providers views/likes etc drop which means you get angry customers. Also when you're doing that, you're at the mercy of those sellers and constantly have to chase them up for your buyers which is a massive time suck and huge pain in the arse. Unless you're making a lot of money from this site and your sales which I doubt that you are then its going to become an even bigger time suck and pain in the nether yaya.

    Trust me, listen to the voice of experience lol, I've been reselling social signals, likes/views etc myself for years. Be prepared to deal with many paypal chargebacks, angry customers and scammers that will try and rip you off. You have to expect that because it "goes with the territory".

          YES your site DOES suck!
          There's no need for that, I appreciate your input and thanked you for it. I asked for feedback on the site in terms on design/functionality, not the business as a concept.

          Thanks anyway.

            Well don't be rude to people then by brushing them off when they are only trying to help you out.

            I'm telling you now, this site is never going to be a success. Design sucks.

            This is how it looks on my pc http://i.imgur.com/VUh8eG8.jpg

            And on my fone http://i.imgur.com/NYWHbHI.png

            Honestly, just delete it all and do something else. Something that doesn't involve ripping people off.

                Okay maybe I was a bit harsh earlier and calling you a scammer might be a bit harsh too. Buy lets make no mistake here, even if you think you are being transparent with people (your buyers/clients) at the end of the day buying social signals likes/shares etc is purely blackhat and is akin to buying links which google is completely against. In fact, G hates sites like this because of that reason. Selling +1's is an abomination to them.

                And now they know all about it because you have posted the site here for them to see.

                Regardless, you will only ever be acting as the middleman and you will be buying them at bulk/wholesale prices from sources that provide fake social signals. By fake I mean all of the accounts used to generate them are not real accounts. They are eggs, bots if you like. After a while, many of these fake accounts get deleted by the sites and then they drop which is when you get your customers coming back demanding a refund or opening a paypal dispute which is just hassles and too many of them can get your paypal account frozen or end up getting limited so you are restricted from using it in certain ways and have to wait to get your funds etc. Get too many and they just shut you down. But thats another story and there's way around it but still hassle for not much return.

                Oh but by then you would have made enough money from it all to live with that right?

                It's not going to happen man. You're flogging a dead horse.

                That said, I don't know what other kind of services you might have planned to sell on there. If you sold some actual genuine SMO/SMM services then that might give you a little more merit but as it stands now don't look like that.

                  Your feigned moral outrage is a bit much. Everyone has fake "likes" from Pres. Obama on down. Poor webdesign aside, if people are willing to pay for OP's 'product' more power to him. If you have a business with no facebook or twitter followers people will question its legitimacy and it's harder to make sales. People(marketing groups, agents, publicists, business owners, etc...) do buy these 'services' for their clients and themselves. As far as bots, OP can create his own fake social media accounts to ensure that they a don't close and cause customer complaints.

                  OP is on to something, but that said, he's extremely overpriced.

                  Obama has millions of fake Twitter followers
