      Hi

      I am rebranding my website for 2009 as I hate the current one! But I look at other websites and cant decide what should and shouldnt be on my site. I would really appreciate some feedback and/or suggestions. Please be as honest as possible. I have a thick skin.

      Actually, my blog also needs some comments if you feel like it. (it isnt even linked to current site - can you believe it?)

          Wow. There's a lot going on. I'm not sure what you want me to see first...or last. I spent a minute on it before I had to move on to your blog. I spent much less time there. Narrow your focus and say lots with less. Well, at least you'll get some visitors.

            Julie... There is just too much going on there, overall. You need to try to keep it simple. On the mainpage try to re-organize all content. You can also break it down into sections. Use more pictures as well. The white background and bright colors theme doesn't work so well. The text colors, backgrounds, etc... They all should match and compliment eachother.

            I'd get a professional re-design if I was you. It shouldn't cost more than a few hundred bucks.

            Good luck!

                On the home page, the flashing "call us now" on the left side and the flashing business logos on the right side make it very hard to focus on and read the content in the middle that's important. I would turn the flashing elements off.

                Also, those logos have the nasty look of paid/click-thru/affiliate ads, but they aren't (when I clicked on one, it turns out they are your clients -- so something that SHOULD make a positive impression up-front actually had a negative impact on me initially). I would add text that says: OUR CLIENTS at the head of that right column and put all the logos beneath that (static).

                On the positive side, the site is well-organized, describes your services very effectively, and demonstrates good copywriting. It seems to lack a comparable visual element, however -- very plain. If I had to sum up my overall impression of your firm, based on its website alone, I'd say, "These guys definitely have the intelligence to handle my project, but I'm not sure they have the creativity." Hopefully, that feedback is useful.

                P.S. I thought posting "I hate my website" was an especially clever way to get people to check it out (I was thinking, "Well then, I have to see THIS!).

                    Hi Lighthouse24

                    To be honest I have hated it since it was created - it just doesnt look professional to me.

                     


                    Thanks for the feedback, I was worried if I put "I hate my website" people might think it was a scam to somehow be selling viagra but really I am just trying to get as much opinion and feedback as I can so build a professional website and get traffic.

                     


                    Please keep the feedback coming - I am really taking on board what you all are saying.

                     


                    Julie :)

                    Hi Julie,

                    I would get the content and the navigation a little bit more organize, and definately redesign the site to something more modern. You want to make sure your site looks like a professional and legit business.

                    I don't know who your hosting company is, but if you're looking for something new I host mine with 1and1. They have really good prices and comes with lots of free features. You can get the link from my web site at http://www.couponclubdeals.com/1and1.html. They even have some professional templates you can choose. I'll be more than happy to help out if you need any help setting it up.
