Hi Everybody,
My wife and I started an errand running & concierge service. Our goal is to have a business that we can run so my wife can be home as much as possibile when we start to have kids.
We are geared towards the high income clients $250,000 a year or more. our goal of the website was to so the benefits of using our service. We also wanted it to be easy to read and quick to the point.
Plesae let us know what you think.

My wife and I are doing the same business like you do. So don`t give up. How was the business going? We got great critiques, didnt we? Thank to you all.

    I think that you are on to something, but your marketing is misguided.  Just my opinion, but you`re trying to serve wine and cheese using a beer and chips menu.You are targeting the high income clients, so you have to appeal to what they expect.  An executive wants a personal concierge for a day or for a few hours - not an errand boy.The website will appeal to the average soccer mom with too many chores on the plate, but I don`t think that you will pick up any executive clients except by referrals.  It`s all in the image.  Rent "Bob the Butler" and you`ll see what I mean.

    May I ask why all the pages are in flash?  There really isn`t anything "flashy" (like the other web site) going on and it will hurt you in the search engines.  I would go to straght HTML if you can.
    The high heel shoe threw me... I`d assume of you are running my errands you`d need sneakers

    May I ask why all the pages are in flash?Good eye - I didn`t catch that.All Flash - badSo are web sites that are all images.  The search engines have nothing to index so you are lucky to ever be found by Google.
