Suggestion and help on my site

10 replies
Hello my fellow warriors, this is my first time posting here, and Im a new :rolleyes: warrior. I wanted to know if you can help me out with my site I do not knwo what am I doing wrong :confused:. I mean I do the free advertising on craigslist and backpage, even went lil beyond that and paid to post on multiple states and cities (not all of them though). I made some changes to my wordpress sites, got pretty much lil plugin crazy. I had a press release made and started distributed to some free press release submission, also paid just once for a express submission services. Can anyone help me out here ? what am I doing wrong, or what do I need to change or keep on diong? anything? Oh and my website is www.amazingwebsitesecrets.com. Thank you if anyone can point in the right directions.

    You need to lose the bold on your site and I'd suggest here too. It makes both hard to read. I kinda like the template you're using but that's about where it stops. You've got a lot of formatting issues, especially all the bold caps. But that's not the main problem.

    Landing on your page I have no idea what the site is about. You need a benefit-oriented headline to grab the attention of your visitor. Your sales copy might actually be decent but no one will get that far until you straighten out your formatting and headline issues. Good luck.

    Hey welcome to Warrior. I'm new too. Anyways on to your site. I'm just going be straight with you, I don't mean to be rude or anything I'm just trying to give you legit advice, okay?

    -The domain name is great. It might be hard to rank for, if those are the keywords. But the name is great. So good work there.
    -The header looks like 3 images sort of mashed together.
    -I assume you don't have rights to those pics, in which case they could get you into trouble. You need legal permission to use photos on your site. You can buy on stock photo sites etc.
    -The theme is less than perfect. I don't know, just maybe try some different stuff.
    -You can't read teh text on the header. It's too small and you can't see it with the background...
    -Bottom right phone number thing is glitchy on my computer, and I personally find it annoying
    -Content could be good, I didn't read it all, but it doesn't grab your attention. If this is a squeeze page you might as well go all the way and do it like everyone else. You can offer different stuff, but they've got it down to a science. It can still be effective and all.
    -This Amazing Web Design Secrets logo thingy is a little hard to read and not too professional looking
    -Unclear on what you're selling, Android stuff or website secrets?

    There's other things perhaps. Hopefully you didn't take anything I said personally. I love the effort you put in and that you just went for it--I didn't have the balls to make a website (which failed miserably BTW) for months. Anyways good luck and welcome

    I agree, get rid of the bold font. Bold is for emphasizing. It's like how you don't put EVERYTHING IN CAPS, because it's like you're shouting at people. Bold has a similar effect.

      I edited my post because it was very mean.

      So, I'll be a little nicer. Your site is hideous and you're selling a "create a website" product.

      Think about it for a minute.

      You must know that your site is awful. You shouldn't need to ask why it's performing poorly. It should be blatantly obvious.

      What do good sites looks like? What does yours look like? Do some of your own analysis before asking other people.

    Your site can definitely use a good redesign. And it looks like you made a sales letter out of a blog post. Come on now... gotta do better than that. First start with a basic sales letter style website (or squeeze page), and consider a different niche to sell in. I'm not sure if the "website design" or "website creation" niche is something that you will be profitable in.

    And your chat box says: "Type and hit Enter to chat with our robot".

    Come on man... get rid of that.

    Most people will tell you that many visitors will not scroll down at all on your site so make the top good. The top of your website is a train wreck. I get what your are going for by covering up amazing website with the word secret, however, covering it up like you have makes it incredibly hard to read.

    I suggest making the secret part go diagonally, so it's covering the middle part of both words, amazing and secret, your eye will connect those words, but right now it took me quite a while to even make out what it said, no one is going to spend that long trying to figure it out.

    Also, the text that says "learn the secrets of the trade..." is even harder to read, it's essentially invisible. Get that out of these and move it down, make it a little bigger, and bold.
