    Hi,

    I’ve redone my website because I felt that the last one was too big, too many places a visitor could wander off. So when looking at my new website, put yourself in the shoes of a potential buyer and answer this – is there enough there to promote an enquiry? And if not – what’s missing?

    Cheers!

    Hi IncredibleCo,

    I’ll kick this one off by saying that I love the clean lines, but feel that you are missing a clear and compelling call to action.

    If I were you, I’d look to make the kind of impact that you have with the site you created for Thunder Training.

    Secondly, in the SheOak College site in your portfolio, I’d insert some real text into the bubble that currently says something like “You can insert your own text here”.

    I’ll be interested to hear what everyone else has to say too.

    Good luck with your review,
    Jayne

    I’m a fan of:

    • Your name – I think it’s fantastic.
    • The slider – your portfolio is really good so move it up so it’s above the fold. The first thing I look at on a web designer’s site is their portfolio.
    • Black and green.

    I’m not a fan of:

    • The giant Incredible Co image – your name (although it is cool) is already in the top left corner and the giant image takes up too much valuable above the fold real estate. Put the slider there instead IMO.
    • The text under the giant header – it’s a bit wishy-washy and not very punchy.
    • The circles.
    • The portfolio items not clicking through to give more detailed information.
    • Your contact details only appearing in the footer. Instead of a giant subscribe box, maybe a giant contact us box?

    Cheers,
    Victor

    G’day Phillip,

    I’ve had a look at your web site and this is from a visitor point of view with no credentials in web site design, I just know what I like viewing in my web travels. I like the colours, bold yet not overdone or confusing. Love the boldness of the top banner showcasing your business name, Facebook like, and contact details, but question if you need a Home button?

    I take on board your comment that your last site was too big, with too many places for the user to wander off too, but for me, single page sites don’t do it, I like to see some separation of a site’s components.

    The links for Portfolio, Testimonial, Features and Pricing simply dropping down to the appropriate section on the same page, offer me no further information than what I’d already read, so I felt a bit disappointed.

    Phillip your site, particularly in your profession as a web site builder is a showcase of your talents and it should entice the visitor looking for a new web site to see yourself as their answer. I like your portfolio of work, what I can see of it, but it transitions too quickly for me to get a decent look at it. For me, I’d appreciate at least a link to the sites you’ve created, you may have created the sites for someone else, but they’re still your babies, be proud of them and let folk who are potential clients get a good look and feel for the different types of work you’re capable of.

    Loved the use of the Testimonials under your Portfolio, it’s always nice to read end user comments.

    The use of the grey circles and one green for your features is nice, but they look like they should be clickable to somewhere else in my opinion.

    Sorry Phillip, I’m not confident I’ve been of any help and as previously mentioned, I have no credentials in web design, BUT we are great at finance :-). Hopefully others amongst the membership will be positioned to review your site from a more professional aspect.

    Kind regards
    Trevor Cox

    The all in one page is a bold and trendy move towards the growing popularity of infographics.

    To me it shows your creative, able to think outside the square.
    Admittedly, on my first visit I got a little lost trying to figure out how to navigate to the different pages – but now I really like the fact there aren’t any. Can I suggest an experiment with slower speeds on the slider and also slower speed in the scroll down after clicking a link to its anchor.

    Nice website. Looks fresh and efficient. Modern without being facetious.

    Great usage of your portfolio at the bottom also. Mmmm, Coopers Alehouse I see!
