    Visit our Website: http://www.omni-ag.com. What is your comment about the general look and feel of the site?

    The site look very confusing. The background of the site is a screams yellow-green field.. It is very anoying and disturbing – You have to change background!
    The logo is pretty simple, but it looks nice and professional.

    What do you find irritating?

    Except the ugly background that I mentioned before, the picture behing the logo of the company is very unclear and confusing – it looks very blury and unclear, the coloros are awful and it disturbs my eyes very much.

    what do you like about our site?

    I like the fact that the site is very simple and small. It makes it very easy to navigate in the site. The main menu is down to the logo, and it is very easy to choose what do you want to look at.

    What can we do to better showcase our products and services? What would you change?

    Well, at first I would change the design of the site, because it looks very unattractive and unprofessional.
    A professional site should look very simple, white etc.
    I would change some pictures, and the coloros of the sites.
    I think I would mention other companies and theirs high prices, and that will convince people to but your products.

    What can we do to better serve our customers(farmers, ranchers) via the site?

    Like I mentioned before, I think you should compare your low price with other companies that thier prices are very high, and put it on your site.

    How does our site compare to similar sites/competitors?

    I never have been surfing in sites like this one, farm’s equipment…
    But I searched for some site and I found this one – http://www.gardensalive.com/default.asp
    I don’t understand a lot in garden and farm’s equipment. But, this site looks very professional. I admit, the design is not very beautiful and attractive, but – there is a list of prices in the front page! It seems to be very useful. Use it.

    Please share any additional comments you might have.

    I don’t have any..

    Visit our Website: http://www.omni-ag.com. What is your comment about the general look and feel of the site? I like the opening Omni-Ag logo.  I think it captivates my attention.   After the logo, the screen automatically goes to the green cornfield landing page.
     
    What do you find irritating? I find the Miller Condor red ad that keeps displaying immediately under your tabs to be irritating to my eyes.  It’s too overwhelming for my attention.
    Also, the Miller Condor and the “Welcome to Omni Ag” displays need to be centered.  They are presently left justified and it just makes the page seem a little off.
     
    what do you like about our site? I like the initial display of the Omni-Ag logo.   It’s very captivating.  I like how the screen immediately changes into the landing page of the website. I like the cornfield background.  I like the “Welcome to Omni Ag” box in the middle of the landing page.   I like how the font is easy to read and see.
     
    What can we do to better showcase our products and services? What would you change? I would suggest a video presentation of your new equipment.  Maybe once you click on  New Equipment, it could open onto the page, and then have an option for a video presentation as well.  It seems to need more product market presentation.
    I would also suggest you moving the Red Flashing Miller Condor ad to the bottom of the screen.
     
    What can we do to better serve our customers(farmers, ranchers) via the site? I would suggest you set up a forum type page for your customers to be able to ask questions that they are seeking answers to.  Maybe so they can help each other as well as seek your assistance, even to ask questions on the products your offer.

    How does our site compare to similar sites/competitors? I am assuming your company is a small business.  I compared it to larger company sites such as MFA, etc.  Your website does not seem to have enough to offer the customer.  It needs more information, a better presentation of your products and more options for the customer to use online.
     
    Please share any additional comments you might have. When I open up your equipment pages, I would suggest stretching them out instead of having the side bar scroll.  It would make the site look bigger overall.  Also on the Contact Page, I would like to see the “Click Here for Map and Directions” to be in a color other than the blue.  It’s very hard on the eyes to see that contrast.    Again, I think the screen contents need to be centered instead of Left Justified, including your address and contact information at the bottom.  I would also like to see the Red Flashing screen at the bottom of the page, if at all.     I would like to see a little more information added to the About Us screen to help personalize the visit.

    Visit our Website: http://www.omni-ag.com. What is your comment about the general look and feel of the site? I like the background of the farm.  It gives the site depth.  The graphics that are scrolling are a bit large.  In the filmstrip of the individual parts there are two pictures of white part against a white background making it difficult to see what the item is.  The first picture is a steering wheel, but the third picture looks like some kind of commode.  I like the red tractor and then the zoom to the logo.  I don’t like it that the filmstrip pauses and disappears for a few seconds before beginning the cycle again.  I think that having the logo twice on the page and the same font size looks unusual.  I would prefer that the top logo be smaller and up in the right hand corner.  The logo in the grey box is prominent enough and makes the top logo look unnecessary.  I am also a little bothered that the grey box, filmstrip and contact information is not centered.
     
    What do you find irritating? I’m not sure that I would term it “irritating”.  But I’m not fond of the green color chosen to accent the tab words when you mouse over them.  It doesn’t really accent the tabs in a good way.  Although I do like that feature.  I think that the background is beautiful and the grey black and white should be the only colors used for the words, tabs or logo.  You have a great start.  Let the red from the tractor photos be the dominant color, take out the greens from tabs.
     
    What do you like about our site? I like that your contact information is so large and white.  You can’t miss it!  I have seen recently and I really like it when websites put their 1-800 number in the top right hand corner of each page of their website.  It seems to say to me that you really want me to contact you with questions. 
     
    What can we do to better showcase our products and services? What would you change?
    On your equipment page I wish do not like the picture of your office.  It doesn’t evoke anything professional to me.  As I look at it I am thinking, is this someone’s home?  Why is this picture here?  Did I click on the equipment tab?  I like that the two tabs for used and new are so large.  That is what made me realize I was on the right page.  I would change the picture for a logo or your top selling machine.  Again,  I would make the tabs for used and new not change to that green color.  I might even make them boxes- black, grey, or white.  When I clicked on “New equipment”, the words-“New equipment” at the top of the page became too large and came off the screen, so now it says- “New Equipm”   But, the equipment list is now centered.  I think that the equipment list is most professional looking part of this site.  The same issue with the words at the top of the page justifying too far right is on the “used equipm” page.  I do like the slideshow option for the used equipment.  I just realized that the building on your site is your office building.  I would take that picture completely off of your site.   It is not impressive.  Use pictures of the equipment and even pictures of your friendly staff.  The internet is a tool to sell your product all over the nation.  Don’t limit yourself to the Texas dynamic and demographic.  What looks like success where you live, may not look as impressive to the national audience of consumers.
     
    What can we do to better serve our customers(farmers, ranchers) via the site?
    I think if you gave them the option of signing up for an rss feed to their email for new products that you are featuring, new or used. 
     
    How does our site compare to similar sites/competitors?
    I think that with a little more design toward the successful features of your business, this site could be comparable to the larger equipment providers.
     
    Please share any additional comments you might have.
    I think that you have a great start.  I want really think that your equipment needs to be the selling point of the site.  I also would love to see a friendly face.  Either the owner or the staff, a friendly farmer waving from one of the implements, something to humanize the site.
