I have just put a new site online. Only about half the pages work, but I am hoping to get some feedback.

http://www.w3roi.com

The content and pricing are not final, I mostly needed to fill it in to do the design.

And I know it has problems in IE6 still. Hate that browser!

But what works? What doesn't? Should I change around colors/layout anywhere?

Also, does it load quickly? It feels sluggish here but my connection has been acting up.

    First of all:

    The site looks amazing! and I love the concept.

    (I hope there is a wso in the future of this project)

    The site loaded quickly for me.

    What didn't load quickly was the video.

    Maybe you could sacrifice a little quality for speed.

    Otherwise,

    I might loose the twitter and blog parts on the bottom because seems to me like those things are more for people who are already users, whereas the rest of the homepage is obviously a landing page for potential new users.

    Best of luck,

    Everything looks awesome. The only thing I hate it that pop up window asking to sign up or something like that. People tend to find that annoying. So, u might wanna consider removing it.

      Yeah, it's basically an "under construction, sign up to be notified when the site is done" form, so it'll be gone when the site's done

    Hi Dan,

    great site! Very well designed and pleasing to the eye. Well, at least my eye.

    I got some suggestions you might consider:

    1. Test asking only for their email address. Since this is a product for the IM niche, than most of your prospects know for what purposes you ask for their name, so it kind of looses it's effectiveness on making your emails more "personal"

    2. Test throwing some arrows on your page that point to the optin box.

    3. The video screen shot is perfect, that's probably the first thing that most people will look and click! So you really need to make that video start as fast as possible. For me, it really loaded much slowly than usual. Try brightcove.com for hosting your videos.

    4. I'd change the text below your headline and add bullet points. It will increase the readability rate. This way I actually skipped reading it.

    5. As far as your copy, I'd really emphasize more that your products main benefit is actually combining traffic tracking and sales tracking. Otherwise your prospects could get confused to it being a Google's Analytics clone. State on your landing page that in combines Adwords and Clickbank and giving you a cool new feature that shows your average profit per click, overall profit, etc. - ie. all the report you don't get from Google Analytics or Clickbank.

    Wish you success with this, it looks very promising.

    Take care,

    ~Davor

    Thanks for all the tips. I will work on the home page copy. I've tried using a slightly lower quality video, I hope that loads faster

    Looks nice but loaded pretty slowly for me. I have a solid cable connection, so you might want to tweak that a bit.

      I just set up a cache so that the pages aren't generated on every request. Faster now I think

      Read a study once about huge bounce rate increases as page load increased, so speed's important

    I used Animoto for Business, substituting Photoshopped images and screenshots instead of photos as the input. Had to spend a few hours remixing it to get a nice video out.

    I'll have to play with the video some more, when I go any lower quality the text starts getting hard to read
