    Our new website is up and we are still tweaking it so it is technically not ready for prime time but if anyone wants to take a look and offer suggestions here is the URL.

    http://www.acoustikmusik.com/

    Please let me know what you think. Thanks!

    The person who did our website, Taylor Shockizzle, IMHO is a genius when it comes to website design.

    FWIW

    Some pretty good-looking CSS-based layout. Should hold you in good stead for a while. ;)

    One thing I'd get Taylor to "fix" ("broken" being used subjectively this time) is the submenu navigation. It should show the sub-categories even when the main category isn't being hovered over.

    Nice website! (The faux latin is just place-holder stuff for now, right?)

    But if I'm reading this correctly, your mission statement, on your front/splash page, indicates there's a chance you MIGHT screw up and you'll do it again for them, for free. What a scary mess that would be - , the client's time has been wasted, and you're forced into a re-do situation; hating life, working for free.

    If it were me, I wouldn't be comfortable with the message that's sending???? (It would be the LAST time I'd hire a company, if it DID happen....)

    All work in this biz is certainly guaranteed, but IMHO, it's not something to put in front of a client's eyes the moment they click on your website: "Hey, if we mess it up, it's free!"

    Judging by all the wonderful services you DO provide, I think there are much better things you can say in the way of "Hello" to entice new clients visiting the site for the first time. A nice pic never hurts, either.

    Not sayin', just sayin....

    Oh, and maybe drop the "Created by Dreamweaver" & "Taylor" stuff....nobody cares about that kind of thing anymore, really. (Or is that a copyright thing with them?? Perhaps it is? Put it down the bottom somewhere, if it HAS to be there.) Unless he's working for free or something, I don't understand why "Taylor" has to have front and center eye-space, smack-dab in the middle of your front page website. Sure, he created it, (for a fee?), but that's PRIME REAL ESTATE and his name does not really belong there. (Yours perhaps, or something equally important, or a current event. It just looks like needless bragging, IMVHO.)

    This is one of the first things people see - middle/right-front of the page - when they log on, and it should pay out for you. ("Taylor" knows this, of course! ;-)

    I really DO like the site, but I think you could get more into the good stuff sooner, with a better use of the front/splash page than that scary caveat.

    Just my .02 worth. :cool:

    Nice looking site!

    I'm with Joe - lose that caveat.

    Also, just nit picking....but:


    I would lose this image and any incarnations of such an image. I know classical musicians who would not hire someone based on such an image. (They'd assume you don't understand music since notes are drawn incorrectly).

    Other than that - nice CSS!

    Good looking site. I like the navigation. Cute puppy. Yours? I like the clean look and the consistency of the color pallet. (I would have picked a different pallet - but that's just me.) I'm with Jeremy on the notation gif. I'm not a classical musician, but it just struck me as ... off.

    Nice a clean, right to the point. I wouldn't have a splash page with animation though. I would do that in the video section but not a front page. I find they take away from SEO and waste my time. But its only my opinion. Its very clean and I like clean. Your pricing looks spot on. Kudo's! Like your name too.


    Best wishes Thomas.
