    If you are going to sell webdesign services.. maybe you should create your own theme?

    I prefer to use this theme which looks great in my eyes, ut i get your point thanks

    Thanks for the complement


    I notice that many sites are like that, but i have designed long content for seo value and sales value.

    Think many sites are not very sales friendly. So i try convince the user and give them more confidence to use our services by trying to reach them on a personal friend level. When testing i will keep that in mind. thanks man

    I really like the header of the page, maybe i would put the logo more on top and a little left, now its too near to the categories in my opinion;)

    Peeked at your site, but IMO it's really bad for a business offering design services. The logo is too big and the copy is too long. I suggest that you divide them into pages with drop-down menu navigation and make the logo smaller.

    Look around for good web designers websites and see how they do things. I'm not suggesting that you copy other websites, maybe just to look for inspiration. It's not good enough, I think.

    It is decent.. I'll give it a 7/10, could defiantly use some work: IE: original graphics (not common images everyone else uses), content CSS (it looks like a low quality sales page), and possibly consider displaying your portfolio with past work to give people an idea of your quality and style since it is hard to base your skills off a premade WP template and images you did not create..

    I like decent sites. But it's a little bit to plain. Maybe style the sidebar to get an highlight for it. Read more button is incomplete for me. <h1> style doesn't fit really.

    The main page content is a bit long (or is it only me??)

    If you are offering web design service, do remember that your site's first impression plays a vital role..

    There is far too much 'white' on the page.
    Shrink all by minimum 50%.
    And bring the really important things _above_ the fold.

    I would recommend improving the copy (text) on the web page. It reads like a young person wrote it.

    I would also strive for greater continuity between your graphics. It looks like you grabbed images from various sources and just plunked them onto your page. The ratios and colors don't jive.

    If you are claiming to have expert web design services, maybe you are outsourcing to professionals? That's cool and I'm sure it will work. But I would get those professionals to build your site for you. If potential clients don't love the look and feel of your site, they won't want to pay you to create theirs.

    Good luck and keep getting better!
