This reply is for LindaW. No offense intended to you either and I'm no expert. I'm just like you. Your pages are really wide. I have to scroll across to see it all. Is there a way to fit anything in one view so it's not so wide? if not, just leave it alone. I felt like the text in the upper left of your home page was very small and I found myself wishing you had a logo there. You can make one for yourself using clker.com or perhaps just an image would go well there and the name can be on the right where it says Parenting Today's Kids....This is just personal preference, but the gray link boxes looked kinda institutional to me. Is there another color you could pick to fit with your other colors? You have some pages which lack your copyright thing at the bottom but that's minor. Overall, your site is choked full o' info and I commend you for putting in so much effort. Bravo.

I see a lot of websites with their phone numbers and email addresses posted on their site instead of neatly tucked away behind a "Contact Us" button.
There are spammers and phone solicitors searching the internet for such information.
I feel it is best to make it where the client leaves you their information and you contact them.

As I have told others, these are my impressions as a user just like you. Take ‘em or leave ‘em as I mean no harm or offense. I like how it opens up with the movement. Very catchy. Your links on the left (Home, Showers, Closets and Backsplash) have text that’s a bit large for me. I’d suggest making the text smaller. You may also want to have separate pages for Closets and Backsplash which contain just images of those things. When I see them using Firefox, they don’t quite line up with the three images you have there and I’m not sure if you wanted them to line up or not. I know you have a contact link on the home page but I was looking for an About & Contact page to know more about your business. Where are you located? What’s your service area? Are you licensed/bonded and insured? I don’t own a business but I would use the home page for some information overall but then have a separate page that tells me more about why I should hire you. Your images are terrific and show great work. I guess I was just look for some more text to tell me more beyond the pictures. If you did separate the closets and backsplash pages and added an about page, that would still leave you with only 5 pages which is likely the size of the package you bought.

As I have told others, these are my impressions as a user just like you. Take ‘em or leave ‘em as I mean no harm or offense. I see two links on your home page - Home and About. When I try to click on About, it doesn’t go anywhere. Same with the Contact us Link next to the video. It isn’t linked to anything so I don’t go anywhere. The video is a nice touch but I would set it so it doesn’t autoplay. There is a setting so the viewer can choose to open it. That’s helpful because if their volume is up too high, it may start going really loud with no notice. I presume your package allows you at least 5 pages. I would use that ability. As it is now, you have a ton of stuff just on one page. You could have a home page with the video and some basic info and then create other pages to divide up the content like maybe rates/packages, services, about and contact, etc. I was confused about your domain name also. It’s HomeBusiness123. org but it looks like you’re encouraging people to become agents for Motor Club of America. I guess I expected the names to coincide in some way.

I don't know if it was my laptop or your layout but the website was off center. Also, you should try to reduce the size of you amethyst necklace so that the entire image appears on the screen so that the customer does not have to scroll down.

Your creations are lovely! May I suggest, that once you run out of an item, that you move it to another page? You could call this page something like - "Sold out but back soon" or "Suggestions" Then on that page you can explain that if someone likes an item on that page, you'll gladly make them a new one, And explain that each one will be slightly different, as all are handmade. Or maybe you can allow people to pick that style of a piece of jewelry they like, and suggest the color of their choice. Then you and the customer can exchange
emails till you find just the right colors for her.
Hope this helps. Nice site and nice creations!

No offense intended, as I am like you and design my own stuff. Feel free to disregard anything I type. I found the amount of bright pink to be a bit much. If you could go with another color that blends withe the backgrounds better, I would suggest that. It would look smoother with the print background (like you have now), the floral background (like you have now) and then text boxes of just one color. On your home page, you have a number of small boxes of all different colors and I found that distracting. I think your text on the left is too large. You could reduce that box size and use a smaller font. Also on the home page, I was torn between looking at the scrolling image v. the still shots. For that page, it might be best to use just the scrolling image or just a couple of stills and save your other stills for your gallery page. Regarding all of your pages, I think they’re a bit long. I had to scroll down to see everything. I know you’re using a template, but I think you could set the length of your page to be shorter and still have it show a lot of stuff but without us having to scroll to see the whole page. I can tell you are very creative and you make beautiful pieces so please - no offense intended. I comment as someone who does not know you and just has an impression from your web site.

I need feedback on my site, I'm #1 on Google, I get over 100 hits per week but I my inbound calls are not reflecting the amount of visitors we get. I need some opinions on how to keep customers at my site, what's wrong with it?

We do CPR and First Aid training, I've tried to make it very simple for them to connect to what they need, but they still leave the page. The site is designed for students to either sign up for a class or call us to register.

Rebecca - The site is very professional, but I think the subject matter leads to fewer buys. People are lazy, and most won't indulge in cpr or other things until they see a need. Great site - good luck with your endeavor!

Blossom, actually the people who need CPR training are Dr's, Nurses, Medical students etc. They need it for work and clinicals. CPR training is not an indulgence and sadly you're right lay persons (those who aren't in the medical profession) won't get it unless they have to. But, focusing on the site itself I'm trying to figure out how to get more of our visitors to commit to calling us. So far I've added an instant chat and that's has recouped about 10% of those visitors but I need to know what else I can do to bring them in for a final sale. Great feedback, thanks!!

Hi Dave, Thanks for your patience!

I think you've done a nice job with the site.

You've done a great job listing the towns and surrounding areas that you service in the footer. I'd work on making each of those pages more unique. The page names are longer than they need to be. For example, you could rename "Ashby-MA---Painting-contractor-Ashby-MA.html" to "painting-contractor-Ashby-MA.html." Don't have extra ---'s and I wouldn't repeat the city/town name. If possible on those pages, include either a picture or a testimonial from a customer in that town. That will count as unique content and will help with your Search Engine Optimization.

I'd also put your contact information near your logo. I'd make it so that it's consistent on every page. That way if a customer has clicked through to different pages of your site- they'll know where your contact information is regardless of the page their on. If I'm on your gallery page and I like what I see...I have to click to another page if I decide I want to call you. Make it very easy for your potential customers to contact you if they want.

My final comments would be that you need more content (text) on your pages. We recommend 250 words on your home page and 100 on all your other pages. That 250 words needs to be unique content in order to help you with the Search Engines. Talk about why you're the expert in painting in your area. Instead of providing links to pages about Wallpaper removal, Ceiling and wall repair, etc - take a couple sentences to describe the type of work you do and then link to those pages!

Overall, I think you've done a great job. I love the video and the multiple pictures and how you are able to convince a potential customer that you really do have a strong attention to detail just by talking about outlet covers!

Great job and keep up the great work! As I mentioned in a separate post to you- we have been falling behind in offering feedback to our customers through this topic. We'll work hard to improve this experience but we do need help from our community members!

Hope that helps!

Angela

At first glance, I just noticed that your spelling in the first paragraph - under From the Owner, it says "If your tired of looking..." your should be you're. Because what you are really asking is - "If you are tired of looking...." Always keep in mind the full word usage when using those kinds of abbreviated words. OK, the librarian in me reared its ugly head.

I looked at this site too, what video are you talking about? When I went to the site there was no video playing. The site is kind of wordy and it's hard to focus on because you have white font and a grey background. Try to organize your links in rows of 6 so you would have them at the bottom of your page and it would look like 4-5 columns with 6 links in each of them. Don't have links on either side of the page too because it's making your page off center.

Hi Mike - Your site looks wonderful. If those pix are of your work, they show that you do good work. I only have one question about one of the pix. Number 6 in the gallery, it looks like the sidewalk ends before going around to the driveway. I'm thinking, hmmm, I've walked to the end of the walk, but now I must jump over the bushes to get to the driveway. Or maybe it's just the angle of the picture. Otherwise, great site!!

Hi Drrylshafer - Nice page. At first I was thinking you need more pages, but then realized it stands alone very nicely. Or maybe a testimonials page? When you have LA on the page, I had to wonder if you meant Los Angeles, or Louisiana. I had to go all the way to the bottom to figure out where you are. A suggestion: under where it says "No job too big or too small" can you take a cue from the last line on the left and put it up under the No job... Something like CALL TODAY AND THE JUNKS AWAY! Also, take out "Your" on some of those lists on the left. To just say Unwanted furniture is somehow better than saying Your unwanted - - - because it seems like you're telling people that THEY are junky people, and some times, people may want you to haul other people's stuff away. See what I mean? Very nice site. Now you need other ways to bring people into the site...

Hi Roger - Site is good, but needs work. Like Geri said the picture at top is too busy, and the background pic is also. On your second page, the photo of the silver items is so out of focus, I would suggest you immediately remove that pic or take a new one to replace it right away. To have such an out of focus pic makes your site look less than the quality that you want it to look.

Jim - Love your site, and I think it's a great idea! I've already put it in my phone. (smile big) When we go into the STL area, we're always trying to find something new and different. We live on the Illinois side and this is great. I would suggest that you make links to those websites of the restaurants, but have their pages open up in a new window. That way, when people are finished looking at each site and they go out of it, they'll be back at your site. And to have the mobile link is a fantastic idea for those of us who don't know where all the good places are. Congratulations!! I know I will be telling my friends about your site and mobile link, and word of mouth will get it around.

Garrett - Nice site. When looking at your gallery, I found the explanations on the pics a bit confusing. Maybe that's carpenter lingo, but it's not useful for most customers. It's a good idea to have a write-up though, so don't just delete those, rather, include the write-ups in all your pictures.

Hi Lynn, A great site, and very informative. The only suggestion I have is that you add some color to background and give a bit of margin around the edges. Some pages, the words sit right at the bottom of the screen, and it would feel more balanced if there was a little space below that. Great job!
