View Full Version : muse created - website critique
08-04-2009, 07:23 PM
hey, I have put together a muse in a small niche market that is geared towards professionals taking a particular test. the test is broken up into 5 separate sections so i have one product for each section. can anyone provide a critique of the website overall and the text in each section if possible. any help would be greatly appreciated.

I just took a quick read of the home page and noticed in section B there is a typo: "suprise" and also that is the only section that does not end in a period.
I'm not sure you want to start off with "Shake and Bake Publishing..." - it's not very compelling, but there are others here who are much better at that kind of critique :) Good luck!

I like the picture and the feel of the page.
Just a few ideas :
Do you have any testimonials that you could put up on your front page ? Or is it just a test ?
Could you have any sample from the test in a form format rather than in pdf ? If it s a multiple choice, why don't you offer a free 10 questions sample that people could fill and that would compute a score after that ?
Where is the newsletter / email capture part of the website ?
Do you plan on offering a package for the full 5 parts of the quiz ? What differentiates each part ?
I agree with Marcie on the company name, it might not have to be the starting point of your sales pitch.
It s a great job anyway, and I really like your payment interface it looks very professionnal. I hope this will sell a lot !

I like your site and the simple, bold layout with concise text. Didn't read the section samples (and I'm not a Landscape Architect), so I can't comment on content. One commerce-related item I like to see is a direct "store" link with all products (your study guides) shown so I can add all to cart on one page if I want multiple Sections.
On the multiple Sections idea. As a consumer, I'd be looking for a "price per item" reduction if I were to buy the whole set of similar items (this line of thinking may not apply to your market). I see you have Sections A, B, and D listed for $29.95 and Sections C and E for $39.95. Do you plan to offer all lessons as a set for, say, $149.95...or some other price/combination of Sections that might convince your market to buy more than one or two Sections and present a greater value to customers who would buy all in one transaction? If you can ring a higher average dollar per sale in fewer transactions you can reduce some costs and free more time.
A concern with testing a more favorable pricing structure would be upsetting prior customers who bought at the higher prices (this was mentioned in another thread).

thanks for taking the time to look at my site. Marcie, i can't believe i missed the simple spelling error. thanks.
i currently only have a contact us part on the website. i am working on a faq section that will also contain a email sign up within it.
in terms of the products themselves, the a, b and d sections are all taken at the same time of the year and the c and e tests are taken together as well. my ecommerce site allows me to group provide discounts and cross promotion within their website so i will definitely take that into account. would it be better to allow for the site to get a sampling of test data in the original format before creating cross promotions/sales or just jump into it now?
