First and foremost. Many thanks for taking the time to do this. I have studied Site Review 101 V1 and believe my site falls somewhere between Level 2 & 3.
I am trying to put together an online marketplace where advertisers and business owners can connect with vehicle owners to display the ads on private vehicles. This is by no means an advertising ploy and I am genuinely interested in finding out what all I can improve in the site to make it better. All the links are working (except sitemap)
I am taking Dean's suggestions and using his proforma to request the critique.
cashURwheels is a registered Australian business. It is currently registered in my name as the soletrader. I hope to take it to an point where it can afford being an incorporated entity in near future.
AS far as I am aware of, this is the first of kind online rostrum where vehicle owners can directly connect withe advertiser, advertising agencies and business owners big or small to get paid for driving with an advertisement. The idea being, making outdoor advertising more affordable and customizable to advertisers and allowing vehicle owners to add another income stream.
In a bid to make it affordable, one of the feature os the website is reverse bidding to drive the prices as low as the vehicle owners are willing to go.
The wrapping agencies are also considered an integral part of this process and have ben included on the website. they can potentially create a mini portfolio with pricelists on the portal and can bid on projects too.
I do not have an IT background and have not designed this myself. The deisgn has been worked and reworked upon several time until the final product as seen on the url and has taken nearly a year to complete since it's inception.
the website was launched earlier this week, but am not actively seeking users before I find out what I can do to make them stay. The bounce rate as seen on Google analytics has been high and I am trying to understand why. I know one area that needs attention is the copywriting.
I invite your comments on the overall design, ease of navigation, content and its presentation and change I can make, things I need to consider and change to ensure people stick around longer.
I appreciate your effort and taking the time to review the site beforehand.
