Some constructive critisicm for what it's worth:
There is a lot of text on the front page. So much that I'm not enticed to read it. I'd say chop it down and make the services you offer much easier to notice or pull out. Hightlight why I should use you over the next guy down the road.

The info is good but I think the specifics about what you offer would be better served in a page for services.

He makes a good point.......

On fliers, Business cards, etc.... Less is best.... Seems true on Websites too.... ;)

I would have the city, state, and a phone number Boldly on the the home page. I hate searching a web page for a phone number. Also, you want to include directions to you place of business. Other than that, it's a good looking site

May want to check with me after I sober up! All I see is page one. Should I be looking at your first post link? I think it looks very professional. No it has no bling and may not hit a search engine for awhile but I am guessing it is intended as a supporting site. Not driven by hits but referrals!

DooSPX
09-12-2006, 09:34 PM
exactly..... only the home page and auto link works for now

Hoosier Bob
09-12-2006, 09:37 PM
That is how I got it and sorry for the spelling I am editing as we speak. A card, flyer, referral etc and you have a site that supports the inquiry! I think it works perfectly! I am pretty lucky in that regard as well!

DooSPX

thank you much HB

thats the whole point of the site... I have cards, newpaper ads, yellowpages in local phonebook, and referrals

It is ok! State of condition recognition! I am way smarter when I drink! I can't say it all will make sense tomorrow however! I would trust my current condition over anything I will do tomorrow! Things just happen to be much clearer when I you know!

I second everything stated here, as it was going to be my input almost word for word.

I have a few people from India and China willing to make your business expand with less pay. If you like to give it a try give me a call. :D Like the work you did.

Hey Doo, this is a nice site and I do this for a living. I do have to make one suggestion. You have a few scripting errors that are visible in Firefox and Safari. You always need to check alternative platforms as they tend to reveal these. Site looks great but ask that your dev folks check cross-platform if you can. If you need any info feel free to PM me and I wall help you out with screen shots. Cheers - J
