Default Tell me what you think so I can make up my mind?

Hello guys,
Will you please take a look at my website and see where I can improve or just make it a bit better? I am using Google sites and administrating it by myself so need your critique on this.

I have to say that of all the "look at my site" requests I have seen in posted in the last few days, yours is the first one that might not need a total redo. Not a terrible start.

The first thing I would do is make the icons smaller. They are huge right now. The logos themselves are are clearly something you downloaded from a clipart site, and you ought to look into changing them out into something a little more unique in the future. For now, though, they will work, but only on a much smaller scale.

It looks like you have a logo, find a way to use that as your title on each of your pages, rather than the plain text title you have now. I also like your tagline "When your computer is crashing, we will be dashing" (might try "we'll" instead of we will though). Get that tagline at the top of the page, next to your logo. Logos and taglines should be roommates.

On your services page, you have too many logos/services. Almost everything you offer can be summed up into Repair and Setup. Clearly your services are much more detailed than that, but you don't need to make each thing you do a separate category. Try to work with just 3 main categories. If you like you can show some detail about the service options under each of those main categories. This way, after you shrink your logos and add services to fewer categories, your logos won't take up more space than your services.

Oh, and I don't think your customers need a "recent Activity" link that you have at the bottom of the page.

That's all I have time for now. Good luck!

Agree with pretty much everything 'putertutor said.

But, add a nice big phone number at the top of every page so they've got no excuse not to call you

And also, a tad too much whitespace for my liking.

Ok shot thank u very much for all the suggestions, I will need to look at how it must be done with certain suggestions as I dont know much about websites haha

@ Parker.Casey thank you for the compliment.

@ iisjman07 I did what u said in making my phone number more visible for people to see.

@ Cambridge Support I know don't like the white space too much as well will need to find out how to make it better.

@ 'putertutor first thank u for the compliment, ok I will have a look at the logo's thought it looked cool and I decided to put it on ile make the icons smaller. I will definitely check for more customized logos for the unique feel.

I tried that but it is way too small and won't it clash with my first page with my logo? I will definitely put the tagline next to my logo thanks for the tip.

Can u give me an example of what u mean? With the below?

"On your services page, you have too many logos/services. Almost everything you offer can be summed up into Repair and Setup. Clearly your services are much more detailed than that, but you don't need to make each thing you do a separate category. Try to work with just 3 main categories. If you like you can show some detail about the service options under each of those main categories. This way, after you shrink your logos and add services to fewer categories, your logos won't take up more space than your services."

I don't know why it's showing a activity counter on the website ile have a look at that....

But thanks again for the advise made it much more simpler....
