    Guys and gals,

    I am asking this kind and cool community of domain professionals to help me:

    1. We are just in the middle of making a new website design at www.brands.international. Please go through the website, and comment below on what do you think should be improved. Is something loading slowly for you? You do not like the design maybe? Are there any grammatical errors? Would you add or remove some content?

    I am looking for criticism, as to what should be improved, so do not be afraid to list as many problems as possible.

    2. At the end of this exercise, I will select 1 Namepros member who had the most helpful comments IMO and will send him/her a mini $50 Thank You gift (I can pay only via PayPal, so if no PayPal is possible with the winner, I will then select another person). It is kind of urgent for me, as we are in the middle of development, so please comment in the next 3 -4 days.

    Your comments are very appreciated, THANK YOU :)

    I think Marek is talking about the design of the website, not where he has posted content and quoted at other websites. He is now a contributor at TLDinvestors.com.

    I don't own or have any affiliation with Online Domain, Greek Domain Investor Konstantinos Zournas owns the site.

    I like TLDinvestors.com more. hahaha

    Hi,

    Writing a well articulated description of site that engages clients is a completely separate topic and its more related to the quality of writer.

    However, a quick view of the site gives following impressions.

    Logo:

    i) Either the whole "Brands.Internal" can be shifted to a new logo,instead of the B.
    ii) "Invest" in the logo gives a sense may be you are targeting domain investors instead of startup companies looking for a good name.So it can be given a second thought. But I see in the next part of site, you have a broad audience.

    Color Combination

    Its definitely different color scheme but the combination is more seemed to be associated with children bedsheets,toys and clothing. Offcourse, upto you.

    Target audience

    On the home page. Perhaps, change Business owner to business owner"s".Like domain investors and Marketing experts.


    Your online success starts here.

    May be you can put a hyperlink for here, that takes to your blog, where the success track for potential customer is mentioned.


    Learn All About New gTLDs

    Again, on main page, the image under the headline has different color combination, than the buttons mentioned above. The best would be to have a consistent color scheme to give more professional look.

    knowledge-center page

    In the opinion and advice section, the size of the icons gives impression its a different huge something while the first look gives an impression that may be these are repetitions, so instead of having big icons, another method should be used, may be remove icons and adding small tags.

    Sold domain section.

    In the sold domain section, the picture at the start is not fitting in, and all the pictures moving around on the page,are somehow not adding any value. The color combination again needs to be reconsidered.

    Check OUT inventory

    What if you use "inventory" or "store" instead of ...Check out inventory.

    Hi Marek,

    Great looking website. I went through it on my phone during my morning coffee and found the following things I would improve:

    1. DBB22544-85DF-4A74-A6B0-968864728F2F.png CF977B35-CF4B-4B96-86F6-819F755B63FB.png
    On the “About us” page, your contact info is displayed after the photos ( it should be photo 1- description photo 1, photo 2 - description photo 2 instead of photo 1, photo 2, description photo 1, description photo 2)

    2.
    8324AB74-662F-4CA1-8713-22F8340C5958.png

    I think it is a small mistake here: It should be “ We have a number of domains” instead of “number of domains” and “in a potential joint venture” instead of “potential joint venture”.

    3.
    106B4374-9FEC-4671-9642-C365429F8A72.jpeg

    Here I think you wanted to say “registered in a domain extension” - FaQ section.

    4. 342FD26A-11C1-4E70-A7D5-E1A7C2620304.jpeg

    In the FaQ section - Purchasing process , there is no link to Escrow.com on the word “here”. Also it seems that all the domains are redirected to dan.com landing pages. Why don’t you advertise dan.com escrow instead of escrow.com?

    5.

    In Potential Uses- Business Owner, it should be “ radio ad” and “TV ads” instead of “radio add” and “TV adds”. As far as I know, “ad” / “ads” is the correct spelling.

    6. 2DDAC69B-EDB1-4024-9EC3-1766AAA821AD.jpeg
    I’m not a native English speaker, thus I’d like one to correct me if I’m wrong, but I think that on the bottom of the page it should be “ We will help you get” instead of “We will help you to get”.

    7. For most of the domains, I can’t see the logo, only the name of the file: ex: massive.gold.png or her.gold.png ( unfortunately, I can’t upload more than 10 files in a single post) This might just be my internet connection, but I thought I should share it.

    8. When browsing through inventory, I think it would be awesome and easier for the buyer to have a table with filters instead of “Domains by Extension” and “Domains by topic”. Also, that means that a visitor can view more domains at one time, not just one extension or one category.

    Apart from that, I haven’t seen anything unusual or that I’d modify.

    Hope the above helps. I’m sure you put a lot of effort designing and structuring the website! Congratulations!

    I wish you a great day,
    Radu

    This is a pleasing Pink, but while it looks nice, pink doesn't look very serious. I would really look at the color scheme. If you like that hue, I would try orange. Orange has a good reputation in sales copy writing books.

    I would like to add a slider with domain names with a lifestyle background style that SH uses. Instead of that scrolling text. Names in text don't look as powerful as they do as a logo or with a background. I like the way Riz M shares his names on twitter,. A slider image is powerful.

    The top navigation bar Home > Knowledge center etc.
    It is repeated again above the fold with the list if Check Inventory, our newsletter etc
    I think that is redundant.
    You can fix the top navigation and take away that section.

    Newsletter sign up can be done as an exit pop with a hook, like a free ebook or coupon. No point casually putting it out there in the middle.

    SOme links your interviews podcast etc, maybe a video would look nice around that area.


    I don't like the usage of "investment domain names". Maybe something like Investment grade domain names.


    All in all good job :)

    Amazing feedback so far from @its_different @Radu054 and @blogspotter

    We have enough to think about.

    1 more day before I close the thread - and will send $50 price, so if you have some ideas, pls share.

    Thank you!

    PS: 400 people viewed this thread and 3 contributed with helpful ideas - that is less than 1% - confirms my recent thoughts that 99% of people on domain forums are more less just consuming content, while that 1% is creating content.

    Not complaining or anything, just sayin :)

    Thanks, everyone who helped me to improve my website :)

    All 3 inputs were great, but the most helpful was that of @Radu054, who also becomes the winner of a small amount of $50!

    @Radu054 please PM me your payment details within the next 72 hours, and thanks again for your help!

    The 'Sold Domains' page definitely needs improvement.

    I'm not a designer so you can get better suggestions elsewhere but less effects would be a good start. Too many boxes and the shadows are unnecessary. Something simple - the data is the most important thing.

    A good example: https://enaming.com/recent-sales

    Thanks, @Illuminated for the feedback, much appreciated! I will check the link your provided, and we will probably tone the effects down a bit :)

    Hi, Marek
    Why use .International as a domain name suffix,
    Instead of using .com, co, net or other

    I think this suffix is difficult to remember, it can only save bookmark access permissions,
    This is my intuitive feeling, it may be a bit direct

    I am providing Brands to International audiences, therefore Brands.International.
    I am using it for years and I have yet to meet a person who is not able to remember it :)
