Please Review My Marketplace Website

I just completed a design of an online marketing marketplace - a place for buying and selling services. I've already asked for opinions on design so please now I need some opinions on the categories, Is there any other category that people would need when it comes to online marketing services? Should I rename any of my current ones? Here's the site: ExtremeRankup.com

Here's what I have:
Article & PR Submission
Blog Mentions
Bookmarking & Links
Copywriting
Get Traffic
SEO
Social Marketing
Video Marketing
Other

I decided not to take a percentage of each sale, it's too much of a hassle. Instead I'm charging $20 per service listing. The listing never expires and it can get bumped to the top for $19.95. I did all the design and development work myself, getting only 4 hours of sleep. That's what it takes though

Feel free to skype me at StarterIm if you have suggestions or simply want to send some positivity my way - text and video chat is available

Thanks Warriors!

    Landing on the homepage is like no mans land.... You need at the very least a Unique Selling Perspective ( USP ) statement and if not that then a Value statement of some kind. I would have no idea landing on your page what the function of the site is.

    Keep in - mind in general terms you have 3 seconds or less to get your sites point across or your visitors are gone.

    You give more context in your post for what the page is about. I land on it, and my brain is trying all over to search for what the site is about.

    "Get your link added to my PR1 website directory", I'm asking, "why would I want that?". I know why logically, but I don't see the value, not to mention PR1 is small, and all the effort I need to go through to get a link, and that saying that explicitly is just asking for Google to penalize or ban your site.

    Find the 5 things you want your customer to know, and get rid of everything else - your website isn't bad, it just needs focus, also it's potentially dangerous. This site would've been great in 2001, but today it's SUPER risky.

    It's like a thief walking into Walmart wearing an, "I'm a thief" sign.

      Thanks but I got 30 sales on fiverr for that same title ....but then again you might be a veteran warrior. PR1 is a good start for new sites - people have and will buy a service like that. Please refer to fiverr. Your suggestion is more for seo experts or people who need high page ranks. Thanks though Also all other responses can be towards my categories please as mentioned in the post. Thanks guys

        I never said it wasn't working, I was offering my thoughts, your niche must be different.

        I'm in the marketing/design field, I don't deal a lot in backlinks, but if you're buying and selling services, or whatever we do, there's always ways to improve, or something new to learn.

        I didn't mean for you to feel like I was attacking, or saying it didn't work. Just was offering my thoughts.

            That's all it is - whatever works & is best for your customers!

            I'm extremely intense, my concern and passion is more noticeable in person. In my writing it sounds aggressive lol.

    Why not also add a category of guest posting? I think people would love that too.

    Nice design and I like the marketing niche. It's something a lot of people are searching for.

    I'd be careful about getting banned by google though. Maybe you could monitor the quality of websites that are allowed to be listed on your website? Just my opinion

    Good Luck.
