    Hi Guys and Gals,

    I bought Omeganames.com on NP a few months ago and finally have it set up to use as my brand identity for domaining purposes.

    Its not so much as a marketplace as it is a service list.

    Feedback would be appreciated, be brutally honest.

    good for shopping of domains, like there's domain sellers and domain buyers meet and match something like that.

    That would fall under the brokerage part but I am looking to assist small/medium end users more than sellers.

    omegausers.com
    or omegashop.com could be
    because of the suffix name of names attached to your brand omega
    that made it look to me like you're in favor more of domain sellers.
    imho

    Hmmm, maybe something to consider.

    Does anyone else see the name as being more investor based than marketing based?

    Great website - very clean look and highlights your expertise well. I like the wording "over two decades" and I find that the 4 areas of service are succinct yet engaging.

    Re the domains section, there are 4 highlighted and then some Brandpa ones below that. I am not clear whether the latter ones you own, or you just selected a few you could help someone buy. Also, you say highlighted but did not see a link for a larger list. I also find a some of your logos better than others on the 4 highlighted. GrandBean is superb but OUX without box and small does not work for me. Just MHO.

    Best wishes for future success!

    Bob

    Thank you Bob. Great feedback and I agree with your critique of the logos (current domains and logos are mainly placeholders and need to be replaced with better ones).

    I also see where the lack of clarity comes in on the BrandPa domains and will sort it. This is why I love having an independent set of eyes on new sites, they pick up the things you don't see yourself at first.

    "In our opinion it all starts with a name. Whether is be Amazon, Google or Apple, they all understand the importance of brand and your web domain is critical to this when showcasing your business online."

    I don't think you should say "in our opinion", you have to be convincing:

    It all starts with a name. Whether it be Amazon, Google, or Apple, they all understand the importance of branding. One's web domain is crucial when establishing an online presence.

    Great domain to develop and build your brand on. The site looks great, with very clean lines. It does have grammatical errors throughout though.

    Beginning with your opening paragraph, "There are over 1.9 billion websites in existence and the numbers is growing exponentially."
    You would want to change it to "the numbers are growing" or "the number is growing".
    I know these things feel a little trivial, but if you're asking for others thoughts, I know you're taking it seriously.

    Good luck with the project. You're off to a great start!

    Thank you both. I've taken your advice and corrected the text to your suggestions.

    Does show I need to do a final run through for grammar once I am happy with the site in general.

    Your website looks really clean and the design is very simple but still working as an overall result.

    Here is an overall review about your pages and some ideas if you have time to develop your website.

    Domain Names page looks really fresh and clean. There is nothing to improve in my opinion, everything is easy to find on that page and it's great that you have listed your Brandpa domains too at this site and tell a few words about Brandpa's service.

    Logo Design page has some improvement in my opinion. When we compare this page to other pages, the color world of this page doesn't fit to the overall color world of the entire website. I would prefer you to change the first section's background to transparent background, which is related to Logo designing or graphic designing. How It Works section you see that one photo is in bigger margin than 2 of those photos. Change the backgrounds for the descriptions under the the titles to white and I prefer to create a borders for each of these sections with that color which will fit to the overall color world and the yellow spacers between the title and description doesn't fit because I don't see much yellow color on the site. And then to the pricing section, I see that you offer only 1 type of pricing plans. Make some graphics to this pricing plan, it looks little bit lonely because every other section in this page has some kind of graphics or photos.

    Contact Us page is really clean. But I think you can improve this one little bit and if you are interested, send me a PM and I can show which can kind of contact us page I have created with the same kind of style.

    Things what is missing from the page.

    - About Us page. It's really important that people knows who are they dealing with especially when you are offering so many services. Tell little bit about your business and about yourself.

    - How It Works page. Like I said, you are offering many different kind of services, it's good to create a page where you tell to people what they have to do, example if they need Web Development services or domain brokerage services.

    - Footer. Create simple footer where is your contact details, most important pages, little text about your company and example social media icons if you have social media accounts and Subscription option if you are posting newsletters.

    - Blog page. If you want to drive some traffic to your website or you want to publish some stories about designing, I prefer to start your own blog and hire perhaps content writer to write 1 post per week for the start.

    - Testimonials. You are at highly competitive industry, so make sure you potential customers can see what your customers tells about your services - Are they Very happy, happy, neutral or frustrated.

    There is some development for the website, if you want really good result, but you have a nice base here.

    Thanks,
    Sami.

    Thank you Sami. Great in-depth feedback.
    I have to agree with most of what you have described. Time constraints were an issue when I put the site together (I had 2 hours free to make something). Once I get more time, I will implement quite a bit of what you suggest.

    Again, thank you for taking the time to look at my site and give such constructive suggestions.

    I feel that the logo does not fit into the design. It is something like the logo is from early 2000's and the website is in 2018.

    I like the logo to be honest. It is a greek font which fits into the origin of Omega.

    Is there anything in particular about it that you dislike?

    I am not that big of a fan of the outer glow, that is it :)

    The rest is ok.

    I do tend to use a lot of stroke and drop shadow or emboss filters. Might keep the outward stroke and have a look at removing the shadow.

    Thanks again for the feedback, it is much appreciated.
