Hello Konstantin,

Your services may be the best in the world, but your website looks very template based and the pictures are low quality and grainy. I would work on improving the look of your site to look more clean and professional. Check out a few of the top Business Consulting Firm Websites to get an idea of what works.

Also, the writing does not connect with the reader. I would look into hiring a professional sales letter/copy writer.

Just my opinion. Hope it help with improvements.

I took a look at the website and although the chosen theme is nice, the content needs a bit more structuring and copy writing. Here are some comments:

• "Press here for contact" button should just be "contact us". It's like saying "To ender store, walk through this door" instead of just "Enter"
• No footer info was setup at all.
• I am not too fond of the company name, though it may not matter as there are a log of ugly company names out there with business that are successful (google)—but the company name reminds me of the word children use "bestest", a bit amateur sounding
• Poor image quality in the home page slider. The text is skewed, but not proportionally, someone who does not have any knowledge of 2 point/3 point perspective put this part together.
• Typography on each page is poor.. someone just copied and pasted the text and did nothing with it. There is no hierarchy and there are too many big gaps between the long winded paragraphs.
• Navigation - OH MY GOODNESS! Where do I even begin?? Terrible structuring. Too many links. I am completely lost.
• Why is contact created with so many different drop down options? Should it not be all on one page? (though it all looks redundant because it connects to the same page on your site)
• News page - you need some excerts, images, dates associated with it.. all you have is a long name that links somewhere.
• Any reason why "our partners" is in 1 column and seems to go on forever? Clearly just copied and pasted without any thought.
• Out clients - the top photo has a picture with the people's eyes cut off?

In general. It's clear it is just a template, and everything was just copied and pasted in. There was no designer associated with this website to organize any of this information.

It's pretty bad all the way around. I agree with everything Woz said and then some.
It definitely looks like it was done quickly, cheaply and without any thought or knowledge of design, or web marketing.

The overwhelming use of free stock photography is really depressing.

Sorry to be so harsh, but it's just not professional enough to get anyone to do business with you.

Thanks for spamming my email address with your garbage — Konstantine Nesterov ^^

I did not reply to your message for you to spam me with your services of "business planning" —which clearly you can't even do yourself looking at your website and your poorly edited email signature.

Thank Elwira for advice)

If it's your first website ever, then it looked better than my first website ever. But aside from that, you might want to hire a web designer. If you're trying to convey professionalism, you're not quite there. It looks very generic and homemade. But then again, it also depends on your target audience. Most people here are picky because we're familiar with websites and see a lot of them. 99% of web users aren't so picky. Who's your audience? Micro businesses? large businesses?

You may want to seek for the help of a professional designer and content writer for your business website. Here's a few I may add along with their suggestions;

*The template is just so basic and try to improve your content.
*The image is pixelated, try to produce an image with quality.
*In my SEO's point of view, you may want to rename your URL to a search engine friendly instead of /node/47, so the page will be easily distinguished
*You may also add a footer to your website including the sitemap, and also try to add more contents on your homepage

Hope that helps!

I notice that you use "Business Consultancy" as your home title..
I think it's best if you use longer words so that you can get some extra traffic for the keywords.
Home keyword is quite easy to rank. But you need to choose it properly.

I hope you aren't referring to keyword stuffing your title tag?

Hopefully my advice wil help as I've specialised working on web strategies for start-ups and small companies for several years. So I took a look at your site - and basically did what I'd imagine most od your users are doing (Analytics will tell you), which is leave, becuase it looked unfinished, like a work in progress, or like a very amateur site. Apologies for the blutness! But I just want to advise you as best. You need to get a decent design - you can do this very cheaply with one of the many template sites out there if you have a low budget.

In terms of marketing, what are your plans?
