Feedback on my new website

22 replies
I have a new website and it is completed.

Looking for feedback and suggestion to make it better.

Just concern that if I post a link here, this post will be deleted.

What is the best way to get fellow warrior feedback?

      I checked the way back machine and you weren't listed so I know
      it's a new site and your not just looking for clients.

      Here is my 1st impression...

      I had no idea what you do, or what you were offering.

      After I looked around to try and figure it out, I am thinking
      you do web design?

        Agree, the website does look very professional and nice but you should definitely make it more clear on what you are all about.. Maybe saying something like "we design professional websites" in the header..or something better of course but you probably get my point..

    Design looks good i think, one thing i would add are hovers (on menu/buttons etc)

    Anyways I think you should use your box below your menu better.. now it only says get started here.. but get started with what? I think you can keep the slider at the right, but use some text on the left to explain what you do.

    Hope it helps

    Site looks nice and clean, but i agree with giving more of what your high points, or services are. Maybe in the header area where it says get your free quote today, you can say get your free website development quote today.

    to left of slider maybe say what you do whether its web design, re-designs, etc.

    i know you have a what we do section but you need something that stands out right away and grabs the attention of the readers thus wanting to look deeper after their attention has been caught. If you aren't trying to rank this website but just have it for clients or craigslist etc. then thats a different story i guess and you will already be projecting what you do in your marketing efforts.

    btw, nice logo very clean and professional.

    I think it looks fantastic! However, I do think that website design or designer needs to be more prominently displayed. Great job!!!

    Hi aaron:

    It is an excellent web site that looks very professional and probably took you a long time of hard work to create it.

    However, all web sites have a purpose. That is, to sell your service. I believe you should high light your service more.

    Also, have a monthly special as that one really brings in the money.

    I went into your e-book covers. This is because I need an e-book cover soon.

    OK so your page says - Contact Us For More Information Now!

    Please add some sample book covers that you have created so people can do a comparison. Also, a rate sheet with how much you charge for each type of cover.

    Overall it's a pretty good looking site.

    But really - before anybody can provide any useful constructive feedback we need to know - what's the objective of the site ?

    If the purpose is to have a simple "brochure" site for your business just to provide online validation for your biz (since people are 70% more likely to do biz w/someone they don't know who has as website than someone they do know who doesn't), I think you've nailed it. Simple (but interesting), clean (not a lot of distractions), easy to navigate, all the right information - it's exactly what I would expect for a site of this nature.

    I do agree with Blase though in that when I first landed I had to assume you were in web design and look around to confirm it.

    If web design is your primary focus - you need to make that blatantly obvious and "in your visitors face" immediately when they get there.

    If it were me, I would work on your USP. I like your "we listen to your needs" and that's important - but from the prospect/visitors perspective, if they can respond with "So what? What's in it for me?" then your not connecting with them or delivering a strong enough message.

    You may try something like: "We Listen. You (insert a benefit your audience is looking for here) or "Your Website Vision Made Reality" or "Websites Designed on Your Terms" or "We Build The Websites You Want" -(just a couple off the cuff ideas to get your creative juices flowing). Whatever you end up with though - make it crystal clear what you do and what benefit the customer receives.

    Also, where you've got the "Get Started Here" button, I would insert some compelling copy related to your services focusing on the benefits...then follow it with the "Get Started Here"....but I'm not sure what you're trying to accomplish by sending them to your portfolio page to "get started" (it's great to show your work - but that's saying "hey look at me - aren't I great?" - and really, you're prospect could care less at this point.

    They have a need or they wouldn't be on your site. Address their need and offer a solution FIRST (share their pain / solve their problem). They will find their way to your portfolio and testimonials on their own terms - I definitely wouldn't push them there to "get started."

    What I would suggest though is having the "Get Started Here" button take them to an opt-in page so you can capture their email and start building a list. If you want to use the "Get A Free Quote" as the enticement to get folks to opt-in, you can, but you're going to need to "sweeten" the offer a bit and add a discount, coupon or free upgrade for them to opt-in. It's too easy for people looking for web design quotes to find 1 million + sites in 3 seconds or less that have pricing right on them - so if they find what their looking for somewhere else, without having to request it from you - they will.

    But honestly, I wouldn't even use the "Free Quote" as a means to build the list. People want instant gratification when they're online - that being the case (if it were me), I would probably come up with 2-3 "Website Packages" to offer. Make them a GREAT value - but simple, and make sure each lacks something your audience would want that either a) prompts them to ask for additional "premium" services or B) that you can upsell them to later.

    So then, when they click "Get Started Here" it takes them to the page where they can view & select a package OR request a free quote for custom design. I probably wouldn't list that page in the nav menu...just have it linked to the the GSH button (and put the button on EVERY page) - but you can test both ways).

    Once they're on the "packages" page, I'd give them about 3-5 seconds then do a pop-up offering the discount or free upgrade to their site - and all they have to do to claim it is enter their email address - so now you're building a list and creating a time sensitive, compelling reason for visitors to not only opt-in, but also BUY NOW (ie: you can make the offer good only if the place their order by (insert date).


    But in reality there are a lot of considerations and just as many different directions to take this - BUT it all starts with defining your objectives, how you want to position yourself in the marketplace, who your target market is, what service/services you want to offer as your primary "bread & butter," etc, etc, etc....

    My observations and suggestions are based on how I'm interpreting your site as it is now - which may not even be close to what your intent/objective is (but is good to know - because if I as an objective visitor interpret it differently than you intended, you either need to A) change your objective or B) fix the site to deliver the message and serve the purpose you wanted it to


    I hope all that makes sense and is at least somewhat helpful. Feel free to PM me if it doesn't, or you want to run something by me. I'm happy to help.

    Aaron,

    Mark's a smart cookie, read what he said and do it.

    You have to find the void in your market and fill it.

    You are competing in a niche that does work for free
    so if you plan on making money you have to figure
    out what will make some one get out their wallet.

    Take you tag line for example,
    "we listen to your needs"... SO WHAT?

    If I were going to hire you I would expect that you would listen.

    Do you get my point? Mark said it also.

    Every business needs to stand out from their competition
    with a USP. The niche your in you really have to stand out.
    Man, you need to glow in the dark!

    Take care
