Opinions on my small business marketing blog please

12 replies
Hi,

I've been working hard on my small business online marketing blog called Search Blogger.

It now has over 100 article and I would love to get people's feedback on the look and content.

The site can be found in my signature.

Thanks in advance.

Jamie

    Hi Jamie,
    you have indeed been working hard, there is so much content on your site you must be due for a break.
    I like the site its clean with not to many distractions from the content. Purely my personal choice but I would opt for a lighter color for the side bar as lower down the page where there isn't anything in the side bar it narrows the page quite a bit.
    This is a good resource to bookmark.Lots of solid information.

    Brian

    If you are looking for an accountant in your area,goto Accountant Finder and search for one.

      The site looks pretty good visually.

      However, I'd recommend eliminating the light blue bands
      at the bottom of each post as they don't go well with
      the Red, Dark Gray and White color scheme of the rest
      of the site.

      Stick to the color schemes of Red, Dark Gray and White
      to increase the color co-ordination and add strength to
      your site branding.

      Less is more.

      I'd also recommend that you have a prominent opt-in
      box above the fold so that you can build a list and
      convert more visitors into subscribers and buyers.

      Dedicated to mutual success,

      Shaun

    Overall the design is beautiful, nicely modern and simple but not too minimalistic, I love it.

    However, on this machine (im in a libary, using Internet Explorer) your writing which is directly above the image in each post is mixed up with the larger writing of the post heading.... It needs to be positioned slightly lower.

    I hope this helped,
    Peace and love,

    I couldn't find any kind of opt-in, it's a good looking site, but how are you capturing your audience?

    Great job on the articles.

    One thing is that you hae lots of great information on your blog. I love the layout. A little dark for me but very professional.

    I would have a Facebook Widget and your Twitter Logo together and higher up on the right. I also agree with Derek, offer a Free Report/E-Book/Consultation in exchange for an email address and name.
    I would also brand yourself more on the front page instead of About Me tab. People want to follow and read other people that are leaders in their industry.

    Thanks again for all your comments - if you take a look at the blog you'll see I've implemented a few of your suggestions. The blue comments bar is now red, the Twitter logo is on the top right of the page and I've made the site a bit brighter all round.
