Alec, I haven't sen your website for a while,
I am very impressed! your design skills are amazing.

I agree with daArch as well. Your picture and your truck has to go.
Handsome guy you might be, but only Real Estate agents market their pictures (why)
Unless you have a used truck for sale, that has to go as well.
Sure I know you are proud of it, and it is a nice truck
but it is proven over and over by now this doesn't work.
Logos have to go lower, way lower and be smaller. Only yours should stay there.

It's a good start...? Why does everyone say that? We won't hurt Mike's feelings
he asked for this. What a bunch of nice guys you are.

Remember this is the about page he is showing us, not the front page. I think we just need to see this as it gets closer towards the finish line. Right now I'm guessing it just past the start line.

I also agree, Alec has a great looking site.

Pat

- Everyone and their dog has the "licenced, insured, bonded" headline. It needs to be much better than that to attract any attention. I'm certain that's been advertised so much it no longer has any meaning. "Your house is ugly" would get more attention . I was guilty of the same thing at one time.

- I also don't care for the red link text. Too many bright colours can ruin a site and looks ameturish. Most great looking sites have only one or two highlight colours while the rest is neutral (white or black).

Other than that, like I said it's off to a good start!

I was thinking the other day you should help a few fellow painters and design a site or two! Mine is pathetic! You should Package one for Myself and Mike!

Thanks for the feedback. Im glad I posted it here now. Looks like its still a ways off from where it needs to be. I only want to do this one time. PWP guys site looks really good. Can someone post a link to Alec's site? I would like to see it too.

One of my favorite sites, he had a black template in an earlier version that was real nice as well.

Woodland....Stay away from that template you linked to or any flash website!!!

This goes to anyone else that's thinking about website redesign.

Google cannot read flash websites....they are horrible as far as SEO is concerned.

Unfortunately, you have to design with SEO in mind. These means having the right keywords in the right spots, at least the best you can without interfering too much with the design or the readability of content.

My new site is under construction, and not yet SEO optimized, but you can check it out here. This an example of a wordpress based site with a premium theme installed. I will incorporate a video blog that I will try to maintain regularly. Will be carrying around flipcam style camera on jobs.

Still playing around with colors, content, etc...SEO will decide what I will ultimately display on homepage.

http://www.painting-contractors-wellington-florida.com/


I will post a new thread for " constructive criticism " when I get more done.

Good Luck Woodland, feel free to PM if your interested in learning more about designing with Wordpress.

It's a start as already mentioned but a bit basic it's only one tiny step up on what you've done yourself.

It's hard to slate it from just one screen shot but first impressions looks like a template style filled out badly.

It all depends on how much this designer is charging you, if it's $3-400 then fine but if it's anything over that then I'm not sure it's worth the money. Find some one with real skills.

Did you fnd this designer or did she find you?
