Please critique my website: http://christina-pertz-lmt.massagetherapy.com/home

I already got a good one, include the city/state where I am practicing on the homepage. So I will be adding that soon.

I have not started working yet, not until I perfect everything! I'll be going to people's houses and doing massage in their homes.

EDIT: I cannot get rid of the stupid double spacing! That seems to be an automated response to RETURN buttons or normal paragraphs. So unfortunately I cannot change that, even though it really bugs me.

Hi pear!

So far, I really like the look of your site. I felt it was very informative and I loved how you mention your technique and that you don't offer DT. I really should have something like that on my front page. ;)

I know you're not finished yet, but the one thing I noticed right away is that I got no feeling from it that you're a mobile practitioner. The only place I found mention was your FAQ's.

Don't worry about it being too perfect at first. Just make sure you have all the facts and basics covered. I am a perfectionist and I am still finding things on my site that I want to change, or reword. At one point I was making changes to my site everyday, and finally had to force myself to start going for longer periods of time with out looking at it just so I didn't start obsessing again! :roll:

So keep up the good work and I'm sure you'll get some more helpful responses from others here!

I would also mention where you are willing to travel with rates. And don'tforget to keep you content keyword rich.

I don't know anything about "content keyword"

I haven't decided where I'm going to go yet, and I don't know if I should post my rates. I might pick certain days of the week to go to certain cities nearby. That makes sense right?

And I made it before I totally decided to go mobile. I'll write that down as a To Do on my never-ending list....lol! Thanks

I like the site, the design is nice! But I have two pointers that will make it even better.

1) The start page should give the clients what they are looking for like a summary of your services and your contact information and maybe a nice image of a massage. You can actually skip the "Welcome" text. I'm already on your page, ready to see what you can offer me. Here's my quick suggestion:

---
Are you looking to enjoy a wonderful Swedish/Relaxation Massage? Or do you want to rejuvinate your body with a Therapeutic Massage?
Give me a call at 419-874-1986 and I'll be happy to help you!
---

The magic is actually to write text that mostly contains the word You. This engages the client in a conversation. What I mean by that is this:

You will get a wonderful massage and you will feel great. (You are talking with your client)

COMPARE IT TO:
I give wonderful massages and I make people feel great. (You are talking about yourself)

2. Would you like to get a nice domain with your name? You can get christinapertz.com for just $10 per year at http://www.namecheap.com and get a nice web adress to be proud of. You can use the site you already have, just point the domain name to your massagetherapy.com site.

Let me know if you need help with anything. :D
