  • website critique please?

    I am launching my new mobile grooming service this Sunday at the local pet fair and boy am I nervous...gee after ten years of working for other people, it sure is more nerve wracking being your own boss! Anyway, take a look at my website and let me know if you think anything needs changing/tweeking.....I appreciate you guys' input so much!!

      The only issue I have is when reading the services page it gets annoying having the information presented like a dog is reading it, plus...you'll go broke doing your lowest priced service.

        I really like the website. It's crisp and clean, easy to navigate, and I love the dog on the homepage!

            Fix the indentation. Either all paragraphs are indented or none are. (Home page, second paragraph is indented, no other paragraphs are.)

            Aggressive is spelled wrong on your web site. (cat section)

            Captions interfere with the copy and put in an extra space, breaking up the paragraph (Groomer and van section, van picture and caption) This can usually be fixed by defining the space used by the picture and caption as a table, so that the text wraps around the table instead of breaking up.

            You also need to consider that different browsers will display your web site slightly differently. I'm looking at your site on a Macintosh running Firefox 3.5.7.

            Aside from that, rethink your prices. They seem a bit low. It cost more to mobile groom with less pets available in a day and more maintenance costs on a mobile.

            Quite an impressive resume! Good luck on your new endeavor!

              overall I think it looks nice, I like the colors. I would move your phone number on the front page to a more obvious spot, so people see it instantly when they go to your site. I also think the services page is a little bit messy, but I don't really have any suggestions to improve it lol. I know every area varies for prices, but those do seem pretty low to me for mobile.

                  I like it.

                  Very nice. Clean, easy to understand, nicely worded.

                    I agree with others about your pricing... Too LOW! although your question was about the website, which is nice

                      I like the website, I didn't proofread it, but nothing stood out as bad. I'd wanna give you a try for sure!

                      I'm not too familiar with wilmington so I can't say much on pricing. I'm sure you've figured out your expenses how many dogs you can do a day, and how many you need to break even. Grats on the new van and business, I wish you great success!!

                        I noticed on the Services page, under the Fluff and Trim Treatment, the very last sentence should say Ideal not deal... I think Also, I'm not sure if you did this on purpose or not, but on the FAQs page for the part where is says "Do you need my water or electricity?" you made the next sentence in the same large font, rather than shrinking it down to match the rest of the response. I am also with everyone else, your prices are too low

                          I really like it, the presentation was very nice. Easy to navigate. I did not read through everything, but what I did sounded great. as with prices, it's all relative and YOU are the only one who knows whether your prices are where they should be. Those would be high for the area I used to live in! Love the slideshow!

                            Thank you all so much for your input. I'm going to go back and make a lot of changes you have suggested. I will also rethink the pricing structure. I am coming from a shop setting and I know what shops here charge and I KNOW I can't think about it and let it influence my prices...but of course I have. Let me take a deep breath and try again.....!!
