Hello Wendy,

I just took a peak, pretty cool. Every time you visit the site different design pops up.

How did you do that??

Do you plan to use images that are more related to your specialty??

Thanks, Sharon. I believe I chose random header so that it would change.

Wendy,

I think the image is too large for the page. The most important portions of your site should be 'above the fold'. This is the most important piece of internet real estate you will own.

Having your marketing message placed 'above the fold'...meaning the impact message that will get people to view more of your site... should be at the viewing level before users have to scroll down.

Employing such a large picture, which doesn't really say anything important about your company or give any visual branding message about your company in my opinion, doesn't serve any purpose. The large size also means people will have to scroll down to see the important information about your business. In many cases, people won't want to do that and you may lose potential business.

I would suggest that you put in a smaller logo header that brands your company name and tagline. Then pull up the text that states the most important features of your company and the benefits and solutions you provide to your target market.

A agree that the pictures are too big. Keep working it and maybe try different themes. You might also want to look at other VA sites to get ideas.

You should hire a graphic designer to design a website header for you so that your website is more personalized.

Wendy,

If you can't hire someone to do the work for you, consider using Logonerds or Fiverr just to get you started with a custom logo.

@Paulette, I am not very creative even though I know what I want and hiring a designer is not in my budget right now ( I wish it were) or my site would look much better.
@Janine, I actually hired someone at Fiverr to do a logo, but I am having difficulty resizing it and getting my name and tagline to look right. I am actually considering Logonerds. I don't know how to get everything to fit in the header. Any suggestions?

Hi Wendy,

If you don't have PhotoShop to resize, you can download Gimp which is open source software similar to PhotoShop. Here's the Gimp link http://www.gimp.org/ and here's a blog post how to resize an image using Gimp (I am sure you can find a tutorial too if you Google). http://www.novell.com/coolsolutions/feature/11503.html

You can also resize in FotoFlexer http://fotoflexer.com without downloading any software.

You will need to know the best size to resize the photo from the template you are using. If you don't know, you may need to experiment with the sizing. Most template sites have a community forum for support. If you check the forum, you may find the answer you are looking for. If not, you can post a question there or in most cases you can contact the template designer and ask for the size that you need. Also check the user documents that typically accompany a template purchase for the correct size for the header.

I've used Logonerds for a few projects with much success. Let Logonerds know the size you need and they can resize the final copy for you.

Janine
