    Hi All,

    I am in the process of rolling out this new site, I am probably going to roll other sites into this one soon.

    Atm it is just built off a theme trust theme, I have put some standard content on it ect. Nothing is really optimized atm as its a work in progress.

    Let me know your thoughts/ ideas ect.

    http://prosperitymedia.com.au/

    Thanks all.

    Isn't that like buying a new car rolling it out of the yard and asking a car enthusiast if they like the modifications you've done?

    Seriously...

    first glance it doesn't GRAB me, to much wasted "real estate" up top , image goes below the fold before any content is seen.

    lacks professional appeal and social interaction buttons

    guessing it will be added to in the future

    Thanks for the feedback, I agree site does need work.

    I might start from scratch and report back with something new, might out source the design as I am not a designer as you can see from attempt one =)

    Thanks for the messages every one I thin the plan is as follows:

    1. Get professional logo done (current one sucks)
    2. Get new theme and then get designer to pimp it out (current one does suck and I am not a designer)
    3. Add more content

    4. Report back to DN Trade members for feedback.

    Appreciate the advice, messages and honest opinions.

    Added a few changes, I will try to get rid of the white space at the top.

    - New logo
    - Lower size images
    - Added 1300 number
    - Added 1 click social buttons
    - Changed the content around.

    I may also cut down the content on the home page.

    But yeah slowly moving in the right direction, still know more work to do.

    i'd remove the right column duplicate menu and put it in the footer, then move yor contact form into that space so the call to action is seen quicker "quick contact" or something like that, remove the "recaptcha " for now, if you have problems later then put it is but at the start of a site its just another hurdle

    Too much whitespace above and below the navigation.

    Clients images must be aligned or remove the images altogether -
    [​IMG]

    Add space between rotating image banner and gray banner "Prosperity Media is a high performance search media company based in Sydney"

    Pages Navigation on right column is a different color.

    Some would call it clean, personally I am not feeling it. You're a corporate, go for a corporate look...

    All depends on how much budget you have to develop the site and bring the design up to very high quality.

    Personally, I think that for a search related company, the design looks fine, and it will be the content that makes all the difference to the success of this site.
