    Which Design is Best - A, B, or C


    Please help me win a bet if you would. Which of these sites make the first best impression? No need to click around, I am only after your view of the homepage.

    A. Broadway Transmission

    B. Certified Transmission

    C. Freeway Transmission

    I think it's a great design myself. My graphic artist did it I must admit. The site is very inviting and builds instant rapport with a potential customer.

    I don't think it is very close. I like B considerably better. I don't like A at all, and on C the tabs look very clunky.

    Thanks,

    I really appreciate your feedback. Some time back I consulted with site A and basically told him that professionally speaking his site did not measure up. He had a really hard time accepting that opinion from me saying I don't know what I was talking about...I think both of us do. T

    Have you ever found a good way of telling somebody there site doesn't measure up? I've recently found one right in the field I want to be in that would be great for my portfolio, but I am unsure of how to approach him. He does his own site, but it looks like it is ten years old(which it is).

    Thanks,

    I specialize in seo and my best approach is looking at their site's stats and ranking before I even touch the design. You can have the best design in the world but without traffic it is worthless. Once I persuade them on my services based on my SEO skills, then I go for the design considerations. If they have good traffic and a weak design, then I focus on their conversion factors. How many cha chings in comparison with visitors. Make sense? T

    It can be tough, though another way you can approach a person is by offering your services in a light manner.

    "Dear Sir/Madam/Who it may concern,

    I have been browsing and comparing your websites to others in its related field. Though, I can not help but to say that your site loses the extra first-impression impact that the other sites contain. I would like to say that I will help you give your site that extra boost by designing the site to surpass your competition! This will increase your traffic, which will conclude to possible sales for yourself. Take a look at my portfolio and I will even help you out by cutting you a deal (MAKE UP A LIE ) and bla bla bla..."

    That is a possible way, and somewhat the way I approach websites that I think need help, badly...

    Huh. I don't think Site A is all that bad. Certainly could be a lot better, but as far as small business Web sites go, I've seen a lot worse. Site C trails at number 3.

    Design B is neat and quite attractive and seems substantially better than the other two designs. However, there are perhaps a few tweaks that could be made here and there to Design B. For example, the yellow on the bars on the testimonials page seems a bit too bright to me.
