    Hi guys.
    Just a quick request to anyone with a little time on their hands. I am designing (ish!) a new shopping website way behind schedule and still incomplete.

    Would really appreciate some feedback from those in the know. The site is alop.co.uk Many thanks in advance for your help.

    Way too much ads, I would instantly drop off the page. Get a bit more system into you navigation, it looks like just a bunch of links put down after another ;)

    Good quality and relevent content is what you need to engage your potential customers. If you're unsure about writing then why not check out some of the Buy / Sell services threads or Fiverr.com

    Another method if you don't want to spend is to try and mimick the sales message on other review type websites.

    Too many ads. Go easy on the ads, and heavy on the content.

    If you're looking to turn this into a multi-product review site, why not have your brief description under the nav, and then pictures of reviewed products listed below, to help draw people into your site?

    You might also break your nav out into a top nav containing your main info (Home, About, etc. etc.) and a sidebar that breaks it out into the smaller categories. Right now, it just looks like a mess.
