Good luck! I'm not much of an authority on the subject but I'd say the website needs to be more visually engaging, at the moment it's just text

Hey @SheikhNaveed you might want to double check for spelling errors on your site.

Also I noticed it took a while to load (using a mobile) so I ran a quick check and turns out it takes a little over 6 seconds to load, might want to speed it up a little.


Good luck though!

Check what it looks like on a mobile. Things seem a bit big.

Also switch from UPPERCASE (I did that with your thread subject line).

@Andy Black I'm going to work to optimize mobile version as well as the copy for SEO purposes. I've used SEO Premium Pack.

That said, I don't understand what do you mean by
(I did that with your thread subject line).

On top of that, AdWords related links in your HOT TOPIC - Lead Gen for Local Service Businesses seem too advanced and it will take time to understand those concepts and apply them.

I'm thinking to use facebook target marketing as a first concept testing as that is cheap as compared to AdWords.

Do you have any clients?

Get 10 clients first, focus on the website later.

I subscribe to this mindset. Create sites for clients and try to generate them leads. Take my guidance as a starting point and iterate from there.

10 years later and I still don’t have a website. I have andyblack dot net that redirects to my LinkedIn profile.

I spend my time building relationships and trying to generate leads for clients. Just doing that over the years brings me more inbound leads than I can deal with.

So you could build a site for yourself, or build one for a client and likely get paid in the process?

Keep going. Kudos for reading, implementing, and putting it out there.

Thanks for mentioning. I've disabled all plugins and activated Fast Velocity Plugin and site takes around 3s in loading.

At that homepage, I expect clients to come and select any divi layout and order. Those layouts are for inspiration of clients.
Perhaps you as the service provider/expert should know what’s best for them?

IMHO there’s too many choices: Overchoice - Wikipedia

Clients will see the enormous amount of template options and click off.

Not to mention templates might cheapen your brand. I wouldn’t associate a quality web design firm with using website templates.

I would keep the templates on the backend and create a little quiz/form clients can fill out so you know what’ll be a good fit.

The fewer steps customers will take to make contact the better.
