Hi justMEworld. I have a couple of comments.
1. There are typographical errors on your home page, including incorrect word usage and misspellings ("patent" not "patend"), as well as some unusual sentence structure problems. One of my businesses is a writing service (www.uswords.com), and I would be happy to fix these problems for you at no charge as a way of introducing my service.
2. Too many words! Your home page needs to communicate what you do in as few words as possible. Most people will hit a web page like that and won`t bother reading past the first paragraph. Is there any way you can use graphics to succinctly explain your model? Based on reading your home page, you may not be ready to fully explain what you`re doing, but when you get to that point, I suggest relying on fewer words and graphics, if possible.
I think the visual aspect is an initial problem. Lots of words, but little line spacing (white space). If possible, break your message apart and focus on each specific component as a specific page.
What a lot of people forget is that hyperlinking information is quite different from paper and ink. You can put small bits of information on a page, then use links to allow readers to drill down into that information.
Otherwise, there`s just too much to read and it looks too compressed. Nobody wants to take that kind of time for something they don`t understand.
So right away, I`d suggest only two or maybe three paragraphs that quickly state the purpose of the site. That`s all. Then offer links to expand on each point of that purpose.
