Opinion wanted (Updated)

  • # July 15, 2013 at 10:34 pm

    Hi,

    I’m a newbie here, is it all right to ask for opinions of two pages?
    If so, I’ll post them here.

    Thanks.

    Yep, go for it.

    Thanks.

    Of the two following two pages, which one do you guys like better?

    http://www.knowledgenotebook.com/
    http://www.knowledgenotebook.com/index5.html

    [ edited, it was index4.html ]

    Much appreciated.

    I like the white background better than the gray… it comes off kind of dingy in comparison, but on a wide screen I kinda prefer not having it boxed in.

    I think the second link (Index 4) looks more modern, the first one looks dated to me. I would say add a wrapper to the second link with a drop shadow and you’re off to a good start!

    @janet4now and @npav, thank you both for your thoughts. How interesting girls seems to like the first one better!

    @napv, could you elaborate a bit on ” I would say add a wrapper to the second link with a drop shadow” ?

    Thank you all for your feedback.

    And index4.html has been upgraded to index5.html.

    And for a more systematic opinion gather, I’ve created a one-question survey, I’d appreciate it if folks would continue to offer their opinion, here we go:

    The site in question doesn’t describe why your product is better than others, it just says it is. It doesn’t show how easy it is to use. It doesn’t show statistics about your claims. The typography is all over the place. I think you have some stuff to work out before asking random people to take a survey of which design they like best. You need to do some research for your target audience, most importantly.

    IMHO, I prefer texture for background than one color, you can try too http://subtlepatterns.com/

    @chrisburton, “It doesn’t show how easy it is to use. “, good point, one of the old versions touched on that and yet its presentation (feel and good was totally inadequate), will address this point soon. Thanks.

    @chrisburton,

    Please take a look at this guy (it tells more about the software), and ignore the layout for a sec (not my strong suit, will have someone else to improve it),

    With regard to ” how easy it is to use”, we’ll need a short and clean video to demonstrate that.

    Thanks.

    “An image speaks a thousand words”.

    Though I’d also advise engaging a good copywriter.

    @deeve007, “Though I’d also advise engaging a good copywriter.”, now you’re talking, thanks.

    And here’s a new candidate,

    It literally appears as if you’re just changing the colors. The content is what is most important.
