Site Review Please

by Tsnyder 13 replies
Hey Warriors...

Thanks for taking a look.

Inspired by recent WSO's and other info I'm in the process of
launching a local business directory site.

That's not ready for review yet but I have put up the site for
the "parent" marketing company.

I'd appreciate your no-holds-barred honest opinions of the
design... colors... etc.

As you'll see I still need to put up one of the videos as well
as an opt in box for an email website marketing tips report but
the rest is pretty much ready to go.

Please let me know what you think...

Thanks for your time and consideration...

    I would suggest elongating your header. The man seems a bit squished. The footer need a bit of work too. In my opinion, the blue you chose to go along with the red text it a bit too strong and may become distracting. The background is dark enough as it is so it doesn't need competition from the header and footer. Try a lighter shade perhaps.

    I praise you on the fact that your main page is very shot and to the point. No one likes to read a lengthy sales page. It gets boring. Good job.

    Hey Terry,

    First thing, right off the bat...

    I don't like the header/footer... they low quality
    and faded, not too sure about those two!

    Other than that it looks great, I
    like the copy... seems pretty good!

    All the best,
    Jamie

      Header, Footer, and the Gray background in the copy needs adjusting, besides that sweet job!

      I agree,

      A bit more crispness is needed to make it pop.
      I would also contribute changing the background color by making it solid vs patterned.

      Good luck!
      Sean

      P.S.----NEVER GIVE UP!

      Thanks Laura and Jamie...

      I agree with you on the header and footer. This is was my first attempt at
      graphics... lol... believe me... when I sell a site to a real customer I'll have an
      experienced graphic artist do them... lol

      Thanks again... any more?

    The background color seems to be drawing my eyes away from your copy. Very annoying to me.
    As for the header, footer, etc. like others said, actually did not bother me so much.

      I've listed my phone number on the sales page before but haven't affected anything less by removing it.

      The phone number WILL elicit people calling you wanting to "pick your brain" even from Overseas but it wasn't worth it for me.

      You might experience the same.

      I wouldn't say... "Nobody likes it" though Laura. Some people don't like video, while prefer reading lengthy sales page.

      Hi,

      To start with I would say your copy is pretty good, its short and to the point, nice work.

      The colors and graphics are hurting you though I think.

      1. Kill the patterned background and make solid. Its distracting.
      2. Red is a poor text color for the header I think. You need a dark color and should not have it overlaying images. Images are good, but move to the side. Dollar bills are not very subtle... maybe a profit/sale graph showing an upward trend?
      3. I'd consider taking your photo out of the header and above the sign up box when you have it. Check out mindvalleylabs.com. They have tested that alot and say it works really well.
      4. The gray background under the text is also distracting. Always have black font on white background.
      5. There isn't a strong call to action. I assume you will lay it on thick for the email sign up and then AR follow up.

      You did say no hold barred
