As I create, review or enhance websites, I always keep this guiding question in mind, How can I make this website better for attracting clients?

Key points for Calvin’s basketball coaching website:

  • I love the energy of colors and font choices. Feels great for sports for kids. Nice.
  • The logo and menu are nicely positioned at the top.
  • The drop down menu, while obvious enough, overlaps text and is a bit clunky for me. Get a background on the drop down so it shows above the page content when it flies down.
  • The thing I struggle with the most is the wide range of headings and buttons and boxes. It confuses me as to what’s clickable and what’s not. I suggest you make buttons look like buttons and consistently use that style. Like green rounded buttons, perhaps with a drop shadow so it pops out like a button.
  • On the various classes pages, I’d like a summary of what it is at the top of the page instead of having to scroll 3-4 screens down. I’d simplify those pages and use fewer fonts styles. While the colors and bold lettering is fun, I think it becomes too much. For me at least. Try sitting with someone on their phone and see how much scrolling they do and clicking they do – if it’s a lot, then yes, simplify.
  • Make it clear where your classes are available, which appears AKL or perhaps North Shore only.
  • Videos of kids in action would be great, but I expect that will come in time (not mentioned in the video).
  • Love the vibe, colors and images of kids. Nice.
  • A few other smaller tweaks are mentioned.

When you hit the LIKE button, I get an electric jolt sent to my cell phone.

This quick shocker puts a smile on my face knowing that I’m helping someone ;). Thanks for that!
