    I think it's pretty simple, but nice and clean. Not bad. If it were me, I would probably add a little "depth" to it, like put drop shadows around the content area. And then give it a little more padding & margin, like...

    Code:
    #wrap {
    margin: 20px auto;
    width: 960px;
    padding: 10px;
    box-shadow: 0 0 8px 4px rgb(180,180,180);
    }
    ^ That's the lazy "CSS3" way to do drop shadows. If you want drop shadows that work in older versions of IE, then you'll need to use real images for the shadow.

    And I would also put the actual opt-in form on that page, instead of just linking to the page with the opt-in. You'll get a higher opt-in rate if you do that.

    My 2 cents.

    It looks pretty good, maybe a bit plain though?

    Put a secondary call to action at the end of all that text.

      I think it's a bit plain and simple, but it is nice. Maybe you should make your site more visually appealing. On the functionality, every component of your site should work quickly and correctly, must be easy to read, navigate, and understand.

        I'm actually thinking of what to add to the sidebar to make it more appealing...

        thanks

    Nice and simple - I would have expected a footer of some sort, though, because as it is now, you are wondering whether the page loaded completely or not. Hope it helps.

    The site is good on a whole, but you need to get a fresh Banner design. It will add more to your site.
