    Looks pretty good IMO but I am no expert in sales pages yet.

    It takes a very long time to load. I suggest going to gtmetrix to see what you can improve on.

    Taking a quick look, the site looks nice but as the others have stated , the load time definitely needs to be addressed.

    Bandwidth limit exceeded, that's epic xD I"m betting you're hosting on a reaaaallly crappy shared hosting provider. Get a cheap dedi or VPS or something ^^

    If you keep your page blank any longer the Penguin update might give you top rankings!

    For anyone wondering, his tagline means: "Come and get it" :)

    I think so.... Let's try it and see if he gets angry. If he does... well, should have been more specific.

    Aesthetics: 6/10
    Loading time: 5/10
    Content: 7/10
    Video: Brilliant 10/10.
    Payment page: 4 /10

    My main concern is the payment page. It's a mess and there's no summary of what you get. I got bored after reading a few paragraphs.

    My suggestion would be something like this:

    Near the first call to action (PayPal try it now) have some nice green .png ticks in a grid, titled: "What you get"
    Next to each selling point - have a bright tick.
    Basically a summary of how mouth-wateringly awesome the premium package is.

    Hope that helps. Good luck!

    You need help with content for your pages. I would suggest doing a little more keyword stuffing. Also, make sure to add your "H1" "H2" tags etc etc... I would also put your main keyword in your footer. More contextual links in your blog posts might help too.

    Loading time is indecent (but you knew this already)

    You are calling more than ten .js scripts, plus there is some javascript directly inside your code, in head and at the end of body. What a mess ! Clean this up a bit and use wp_enqueue_script() to load them properly, this should already improve your loading time.

    Also put all the css code in a separate stylesheet, not into the html (you have two <style> tags on the homepage with some css inside of them, which is really messy) :)


    Fix the title tag, right now it looks like
    Code:
    <title>ARCS Self Defense |</title>
    which will look weird in SERPS, add a tagline or remove the | :)


    I'm viewing your page with chrome on a mac, not sure but it seems like the footer container needs to be fixed, right now it looks like

    Code:
    (grey main container)
    (approx 20px black) <-- is this supposed to be here ?
    (red line)
    (grey footer container)
    Hope this help a bit :)

    From his nameservers it looks like he's using Hostgator reseller hosting.

    Everyone seems to love HG but they're actually pretty slow.

    No, HG's reseller crap is slow. Limited everything. It's stupid.

    thanks for all the comments...had not had an issue with hostgator in the past. the site has too many plugins which I believe is also jacking with the load time.

    thanks again for the comments

    Add a bit more colour and maybe some images to the sales page. I'd say use Impact or a different font for headlines as well.
