Hello Nishi,
  • Your license conditions are not placed well on your index page. Front and center is a distraction.
  • The auto-start music isn't a good idea and has been discussed many times on this forum.
  • Your slider should have images of the same dimensions which can be effected by the use of image manipulation tools,
  • Your home page has information about who you are and then you have another page "About US". Best to keep it all on the same page.

Hi Nishi
  1. Your You tube images you need to edit the margins to create space between the images
  2. Your image gallery needs to be more organized, use the image widget and again set the margins and have a more uniform size of image
  3. Your main slider banner is 1. Too fast 2. The second image has some how captured part of the first image chairs
  4. Remember your site is a true reflection on how customers view you as a company, if the site is disorganized and does not tell a compelling story, this is how the visitors will consider you as a company. For instance I read your testimonials, I would not grade your website with the same glowing referals.
  5. On your about us page there is no volume control for your audio, this can be frustrating for the visitor.
  6. On your "contact us" you have *** PLEASE PROVIDE DATE OF FUNCTION AND VENUE *** you need a field for them to give you this info.

You have a volume control set up in your "Picture gallery" for your mp3 you need to do the same for your about us page.
In your "contact us" page for the "Request a quote" at the bottom you have a line ***PLEASE PROVIDE DATE OF FUNCTION AND VENUE****
yet you don't have a text field for them to include this info. You need to add .
It looks like you used the form widget to create the contact form, if you used the "Blank Form" you can add as many text fields as you like
  1. Date of Function:
  2. Venue
Good luck

What great feedback Gop and Peter! Nishi, I suspect these suggestions will keep you busy for awhile. :) I would also add that your background image might be improved by adding some transparency so that it's more subtle. This will improve readability of your text.

It's coming along Nishi! I suggest changing the colors of your Call To Action buttons and possibly making them solid to help them stand out as well.

Hi Nishi
one more thing you may want to consider is using a mobile responsive template, as a high percentage of your visitors will be using a mobile device.

can't see where to change to box outline color, you may want to get Laura to answer this.
Your "welcome to our official site" needs to be centered.
And the use of the word "remembarable" needs to be changed to memorable

Hello Nishi,

The box outline is done through your Button Widget modifications. Please follow these steps:
  1. Go to your Style Designer (Style > Settings > Style Designer).
  2. Scroll down until you see "Medium Button".
  3. Click on Background Color and adjust the color as needed. 
  4. Click Save.
Please let us know if you have any issues with this.

    Auto-start noise will increase your bounce rate and potentially drop your site in the search engine rankings. Auto-start music on websites  has been researched by a number of groups.


    Disabling right click on your index page reduces functionality for many people and is not recommended,eg:  people who are visually impaired cannot use text readers, or text enlargers. It is also very easy to break through and offers little security. It may also violate the conditions of your CC License, since technological methods that restrict others from doing things that you are permitting within the license.  



    Your CC license is meaningless in this instance. It basically says that anyone can copy your site and use it somewhere else as long as they attribute it.

    You are free to:
    • Share — copy and redistribute the material in any medium or format
    • Adapt — remix, transform, and build upon the material
    • for any purpose, even commercially.
    • The licensor cannot revoke these freedoms as long as you follow the license terms."

    Attribution — You must give appropriate credit, provide a link to the license, and indicate if changes were made. You may do so in any reasonable manner, but not in any way that suggests the licensor endorses you or your use.
    • No additional restrictions — You may not apply legal terms or technological measures that legally restrict others from doing anything the license permits.
    Following this CC BY license you have a Copyright "All Rights Reserved" notice. The two contradict each other.


    
    There appears to be a lot of chaos in the underlying code added to your pages. There are metas and scripts which only complicate the function of the site. It would be of benefit to simplify this. Less is more.
