    Hey there,

    I have a new website I'd like feedback on, you can visit it here: johnimsecrets.com
    I'd like your opinion about:
    • Performance
    • Layout
    • Appearance (how beautiful my website is, or if it's ugly xD)
    Those are the main things I want feedback on, but will appreciate anything else.

    Thank you in advance.
    John

    Hey Jonathan,

    The site looks good overall.

    I would decrease the top margin on the header. Lots of wasted space there that would bring more content above the fold.

    Add move color. Maybe use one of the colors in your banner to dress up your h1/h2 tags.

    Your site and blog are similar, but way different (did that make any sense?) I would either style them the same, or completely different. Otherwise it looks like a poor attempt at matching the design.

    wow it's a simple site but more information about IM, I viewed your video on the homepage and feeling great with your explanation on IM.

    why don't you make the image under top header as a slider, it may contain more images and look better

    Hey John,

    The performance of your site is average
    The layout is simple but clean and professional, You should make the layout of blog the same as homepage.
    The Appearance, I like it.

    A small issue when staying at your blog I couldn't back to homepage when pressing Home link on navigation. It still keeps me at the blog, you can need to change Home link there.

    Great, thank you for your feedback, I've changed the margin of the header, added color and will change the blog throughout the day.

    Couple of items.
    • Spacing of the header at top seems to be too much in my opinion.
    • Might want to look at going responsive
    • I would suggesting integrating the blog to match the website. It feels as if I have left the website to somewhere else.
    Other than the above. The website is straight forward and simple. Very nice.

    Hey Jonathan, reviewing your site on mobile here ;) everything looks great, but it would be even greater if you have links to other parts of your website on the mobile theme's footer. As of now, I have to scroll all the way back up to reach them.

    Overall its a great start! Just some quick observations:

    1. The main banner should be a link.. I would change that to either promote your newsletter or main product offering if you have one... The current design looks bland with it repeating your website title on the top corner.. So its redundant..

    2. I think your font needs to be either bigger or darker...

    3. I also suggest that you map out your content strategy with it being reflected on your main menu...

    4. I also suggest that you think about your branding, logo and website colours and have that reflected in your website with it standing out... At the moment the website is not really appealing with colours with it looking as if it was unpacked straight from the box...

    Personally I would first focus on providing great, awesome content and once you reach around 20-30 posts to put some efforts with layout and design etc...

    Wishing you best of luck!

    Cheers,

    Sid

    I would recommend to update your website to be utilizing more traditional website standards. If you designed the layout yourself using basic HTML/CSS you're already on track. Utilizing a framework like Twitter's Bootstrap Framework will allow for you to give your website a more traditional look and feel with very little effort put in place.

    I would suggest you add more categories and a list of posts to the home page instead of using a page content on it.

    Just my 0.2 cents!

    Your content seems well written but i'd change a few things in your layout. For example, I'd leave my picture out of the front page and remove the duplicate. I'd make a point to make my articles come first and not my products.

    Hope it helps!

    I just checked your website, and I really liked it. The landing page is great, it makes the visitor click the links. I checked some of your articles. The theme color is also good. The website has a great loading speed.
