    Nice design but some spelling mistakes on this page.

    Should be "If you're not online you're losing customers"
    your=you're
    loosing=losing

      Hi Dougie, Nice simple design, my 2 cents though (you are looking for some negative feedback correct?). Design wise, (not including the previously mentioned spelling errors)
      • I think the banner at the top is a bit too big. I would consider going with perhaps a video off to the left side and an element with your headlines(like Problem then Solution) to the right of that
      • The slides have so many words and go by so fast you can't read them, I think it is ironic that one of them states "Are You Losing Business"
      • You need a strong call to action above the fold, Big Bold "Call Us Today For A Free Consultation"
      • The font color for your text is too light, hard to read.
      • Your call to action on the inner pages is better, up top, but is hard to read the tiny print in that circle.
      These are just my opinions by giving it a quick glance. Don't want to come across as harsh, just offering my thoughts. Do some split testing and see what converts the best.

    visible is spelt this way, not your way, and there are a few other spelling errors too. Fix them before anything else. Honestly, I can't go past the errors.

    1. Navigation links are too small.
    2. Slides are fast, make them slow a bit.
    3. Make boxes in slides align in center.

    Aside from what's already been mentioned:
    Your pricing table is extremely hard to read as the highlighted column is not in line with the row headings. It would probably improve if you removed some of the features which are common to all plans.

    In the footer, I'd suggest keeping it to two columns, or put something else in the middle column. I'm pretty sure you don't have a returns policy, right?

    In your sub-pages, the black button with the call to action in the header is too small to be easily legible. I would remove the bottom text completely and up the font on the Call and phone number.

    Nice site. I quite like it, but I would make the menu links font bigger. And I would also have a better logo designed.

    Really think it looks good. Incredible actually. You fill everything out and there is no missing piece, at least for me. The website says something, and that's what a website is meant to do, besides the main offering. Everything looks sleek and balanced out to its right proportions, which is amazing. Congratulations. Simple.

    I have just bookmarked your website as i like the style, Simple and effective.

    Your text in the <div class="two_third"> needs to be bolder or a slight change in the colour of the text. (hard to read)

    My eyes arent as good as they used to be

    Overall great looking design.

      I like the design. It looks very nice. Down at the bottom in the black section where it says contact you got two contact buttons. Are those Flash or have you done this with css or java-script somehow. If it's done with css or java-script. I'd like to know how you did that part?

      Thanks for your feedback. I tried bolding the text bit some how it just didn't look right. I've made the text darker but might make it darker still if people are still having reading problems.

      Hi Scott,

      Yeah I was looking for some negative feedback, so thanks for taking the time to post your thoughts! You don't come across as harsh mate so no worries.

      I've put a big call to action like you said on the homepage, removed the small text on the inner pages on the call to action at the top and also made the text darker.

      At the moment I think I am going to leave the slider, I might get a video done but at the moment all my funds are going on uni accomodation so we'll see. I've slowed the slider down anyway.

      Some great advice! Many thanks again.

      Thanks so much Karen!

      I've taken your advice on the pricing table and made all the columns line up. I did want to emphasis the elite package but I think I'll just do that another way, the column size change was a bad idea ha.

      Changed the black button at the top as per your recommendation, I wasn't too sure if it was readable myself so great to get your opinion on that.

      Really appreciated Karen, Thanks

      Thank you very much. It's CSS at the bottom mate, here's the code:

      -moz-transition: all 0.2s ease-in 0s;

    On the first slider, I would position the text so it isn't under the navigation arrows. I would also dress up the line below the slider with the phone number, make it really stand out. Looks very nice otherwise, very professional.

    Few suggestion for you from my end -
    1 - Background image is very deep. If you could make it light then website looking will be improve.
    2 - Top part menu botton font should be improved.
    3 - Add favicon.

    It has been well-structured and easy to navigate. However I would like to point out some things. In the banner section, please change it to "Need advice? Call US Today". You may also want to change the picture of your banner that is related to your offered product/service/solution. So, visitors would know what you are actually offering from looking at the banner. You may also want to add video or audio in your services or home page. Also, you may add a section for testimonials -people might want to know more about the quality of service you are offering so give them some references through testimonial pages.

      I really like this site. Very attractive, clean and logical.

      Only thing I would suggest is perhaps adding a currency to the prices?

      I automatically saw them as dollars, even though you are a British site, simply because so much online is in dollars.
