A collaboration of business owners (myself included) are attempting to get together and form a tour de force company to handle all things web. Redefining Internet Service Provider from meaning what it meant in the 90’s to meaning a Provider of Services concerning the Internet; web design, copy writing, social media management, analytics, ad campaign management et cetera. A, dare I say it, one stop shop.
Anyway, currently we’re purchasing retail space and building the brand on Twitter and Facebook — in the interim I’ve put up a info collecting page to send people to (from the social networks) to build a mailing list we can use when we formally launch. I’ve never made a page meant to do that and wondered if I could get everyone’s thoughts on how well this might or might not convert. Thanks!
**EDIT: Keep in mind people will be directed here for more information from our social networks and Google and FB ad campaigns, I’m not looking to convert accidental visitors so much. **June 8, 2011 at 12:45 pm #73831
I think the splash page is a little difficult to read. The signup form for the newsletter should be much more prominent (probably on its own in the middle of the page).
Something like this: https://banksimple.com/ Information is easy to read, the signup button is clear, etc.June 8, 2011 at 12:51 pm #73832
Could you elaborate on “a little difficult to read” – do you mean the font, the text alignment, the line-height, letter spacing?June 8, 2011 at 1:08 pm #73824jamygoldenMember
I agree with @TheDoc on the difficult to read comment.
I find justified text difficult and the custom font difficult to read.
I feel this is easiest to read:
font: 14px/1.5 Verdana, sans-serif;
I usually leave the custom font for headings.June 8, 2011 at 1:12 pm #73825
Yea, a combination of the font and justification for me.June 8, 2011 at 2:20 pm #73798June 8, 2011 at 2:22 pm #73799
Probably a little too big, though that might just be the image that you posted.
I would update the subscribe button – looks a bit dated.June 8, 2011 at 2:26 pm #73784
just the image. Suggestion for “updating” the subscribe button? I’m not a form guy so I don’t really know any great design rules for forms.June 8, 2011 at 2:29 pm #73785chrisburtonParticipant
What about putting the goose in between Flock and Geeks? Also the kerning seems a little off on Geeks.June 8, 2011 at 2:35 pm #73771
@tannercampbell – I’d just look at any CSS3 button and try to go from there. To get ya started: http://webdesignerwall.com/tutorials/css3-gradient-buttonsJune 8, 2011 at 4:12 pm #73742June 8, 2011 at 4:18 pm #73745
Now @TheDoc, here’s a question for you: In many forms online I’ve seen forms preloaded with data that disappears once the user places a cursor in the field … I’m assuming this is JQuery — easily done? Rather, easily incorporated into what I’ve already done here?June 8, 2011 at 4:57 pm #73704June 8, 2011 at 6:02 pm #73713
Hm. I do like it. I guess it’s just a preference at this point … vertical is better for narrower monitors, but I’m worried about things being “above the fold” so to speak. I do REALLY like the search interface you did though. I love the little email icon that’s in the field as well as the non-disconnect between the field and the submit button. Also I LOVE the fact that the form has data in it before the user clicks it. Is this possible through a standard form like I have, or is this JQuery? Thanks @TheDocJune 8, 2011 at 6:06 pm #73714
