Hey @Sam00 -

Overall I think it's better than most sites 🙂 A couple things stick out to me though -

- Include a call to action button in the top navigation

- My first impression when I landed on the page was that y'all were real estate agents lol. Maybe if the first image is y'all in action, that might tell people more quickly who you are..?

- I like the Watch Video button...neat effect. I would make "Professional live party band UK" bigger.

- Also I would be sure the buttons have the same shape. This top button is square, but all the other ones on the page are pills and a different font size than the top one.

- I think you will get more video views if you do 2 things - a) embed the video on the site so that the button doesn't take people away from your site to youtube. Once I clicked on it, I realized it was a lightbox, but people don't know that without clicking on it and I didn't click it at first because when I hovered over the button and saw that it was Youtube and I thought it would take me away from the page. and b) If you have an image of the video, people are more likely to click Play because they have an idea what the video is about. Images captivate people. Buttons don't.

- Instead of a Get In Touch button, I might call it "book your gig" or whatever they need to do.

- I would add another font so that you have some variation between headings and paragraphs.

- On the last picture/text in the About section, I would align the text left instead of center and then center it with the image instead of having it aligned with the top of the image.

- Good testimonials, but I would probably lay that section out a little differently and use more of the blue/pink colors in this section. And also take off the dates because it makes it look outdated.

- Same for the Experience section - add some color here...you could make the icons different colors. Also be careful with text that is centered - it's hard on our eyes, especially when it spans so much of the page horizontally (like "our 5-piece band.." section).

- Let's Get Specific - I would remove one of these so that you don't have an oddball hanging out on the 3rd row. Also it doesn't look like the width is the same on all of these columns.

- Add your logo to the footer as well as social media links and links that are in the top navigation.

I'm a musician too, so I love what y'all are doing 🙂 Happy to talk about any of this more in depth if you have questions.

Hey, I agree it looks better than lots of competition out there and is clear to use. A few points for improvement: 

  • Check your heading tags (H1, H2, H3, etc) as I've noticed that the homepage the main heading is actually 'client testimonials' and not ' PROFESSIONAL LIVE PARTY BAND UK'. I've attached a screenshot to show you. 
  • There's some padding/spacing issues that could be neatened up.
  • On the homepage SEO title and description your keyword isn't present, which I'm assuming is  'PROFESSIONAL LIVE PARTY BAND UK'. 
  • I'd move the Contact page in the main navigation to the far right hand side, as I almost missed it. 

Overall, well done!
