Hi Netship. Well I like your name and I like the fact that you were able to get your brand as your domain name, which isn't too long, so that's good. I think your site looks pretty good, actually. It's very clean, looks professional. The only thing I would suggest adding is maybe some examples of the savings a business can expect after signing up for your service. You might list a few companies without using their actual names and show their rates without using your service and their new rates with your service. I think that will answer a lot of people's questions immediately when they visit your site. Otherwise, it looks good. I wish you the best.

Hi klevin. Well I think RJ did a nice job at hitting the main points. The only thing I would add is that I think the "noisey" header, footer, and background are a bit too much. So I would maybe think about varying that a little and perhaps making the header background just one clean color. I also think that the home page has a bit too much on it. You don't want to make the mistake of trying to say everything about your business on the home page. That's what the main menu is for, so that visitors can explore and learn on specific pages. So I would recommend that you eliminate some things on the home page to clean it up and condense it, and also list your weekly specials on the home page prominently instead of having a link to them, making visitors do more work than they may be willing to. So those are just my opinions. Hope it helps. Wish you the best.

Hi Wishy. Well, I like the concept and I hope the site does well. But my initial impressions are... I think that you need to add some color to the top to break it up. The home page just keeps scrolling and scrolling, so I would suggest that you organize the titles a little better and condense everything. Your target market is going to most likely be younger males, so the design needs to appeal to that demographic, such as in colors, fonts, images, etc. It needs to have a "cool factor" to get people to come back and recommend it to others.
So is this just a site that lists video game music videos or do you actually sell anything or have plans to monetize it in some way?

Hi WM. Well, it's a clean website, so that's good. It doesn't seem too crowded or confusing. But I would suggest a couple of things... first, you should probably change the sidebar widget title from "Recent Jobs" to "Recent Posts" or the like. I also noticed that your social media icons are not linked to their respective pages, so that should be changed. And on an SEO level, your meta title tag is not optimized and you're missing the meta description tags, which will kill your rankings in the search engines. So I'd make sure to add unique title and description tags for every page of the site. Hope that helps.
The above comments mention good points about the benefits of website redesigns. I do have to add, though, that sometimes a redesign can hurt your rankings if you don't do it correctly. You want to make sure that you set up your new web pages with either the very same title and meta tags as the old respective page or use better optimized tags, and try to maintain close to the same keyword density (although don't try to over-optimize that). And any old URLs that are not a part of the new site should be 301-redirected to an appropriate page of the new site. --David @ Touch Point Digital Marketing
