Website logo is a part should be changed...I would suggest you change color of your website navigation to black color, it will be suitable to red color color so that website is more professional.
Overall looks good and simple and clean design.

I think it looks real nice. Clean and crisp. Seemed to load fast for me.

Couple suggestions..

Your social float bar is justified to the left of the monitor screen. On a wide screen it's way over. I have the same problem on one of my sites and I think it's hurting share clicks. Personally I wouldn't show count numbers until you have some good numbers to display. Showing a few clicks might not be best right now. Little thing, but a thought.

Could add more social buttons. I get clicks for stumbleupon, Reddit and Linkedin. You might be missing out.

Also, the content doesn't seem to jive with the site name, unless I am missing something.

Just my two cents. :)

Thanks. I will take note of the social likes button. Have been thinking about that though.
As for the site name, well, at first I subscribe that to promote a product that was rescheduled. Instead of wasting that, and think of that as a connecting socially with those value added programs, thus I used that as review website instead.

I would change the color scheme to something less "Salesy." People need to understand that the internet business models should reflect a research first methodology, sales second, unless your sales are coming from places other than mainly internet sources.

Blues and off-greens do well because they promote trust.

I would also recommend keeping a consistent call to action throughout the entire page. For instance, a minor change you can make is giving the navigation bar a fixed position so it stays with the user everywhere - that is really popular now.

This is generally good advice but I'm conflicted about using social sharing buttons. Although they are good promotional tools, and automated, I think they take away some branding of the site. You know, a "Tier 1" website, if you will, is Google, Facebook, YouTube, etc. They have their own branding and don't need anybody's help for backlinks. They are the standard.

Tier 2 websites would be sites like this with large community engagement. They got big using the system properly.

And Tier 3 or less are a smaller brand altogether again. When you add social buttons you are automatically classifying yourself as a "Tier 2 or less" I hope that makes sense. Of course, this is just fine for most people. But I believe if you really want to be "big" that you should market yourself quietly outside of the web in-front of real people and cold calls. What do you think? Then your brand becomes positioned for "Tier 1" standards.

Maybe this isn't the place to post a message like this. But food for thought nonetheless.

Guess I think a little differently. For most people, they work hard for every hit, click and share. So anything that get's any one of all of those can be a good thing. And like you said, it's automated. I really don't see how they take away from branding, they are just a tool to help increase a sites reach, increase it's audience. There are plenty of big sites, brands or authorities that have social sharing buttons.

Social is normal these days, it's a given. It's part of our lives, some more than others. Being such, I don't see how it takes away anything. Just my opinion.

Of course I am not suggesting any one plaster their site with 50 social buttons like we use to. I remember years ago, how many I use to use, that was a waste for sure. But hitting the big ones almost seems like a necessity these days. Doubt any visitor is going to be put off because a site has social sharing buttons.

Your website looks Good for me. I suggest you to add a professional logo to your blog. Make your site navigation easy for that you can use taxonomies. I also like to add one more thing. if possible move to premium theme from Mythemeshop as you are using free themes from mythemeshop.

Your website is simple and for me its working. I guess your logo needs a lot of improvement. Remember one thing that people usually remember is the name and the logo itself since its the one the will uplift your website. It is what the people will remember so make sure that it will be remarkable. For the content I don't have any problem with it, layout design its working for me but if you can look for a better design at theme forest that will match your blogsite then much better. Feel free to consult us once you made any changes.

You definitely make good points. I suppose I was saying that Google doesn't have a share button to Facebook. And Facebook doesn't hav a pin it button. Instead they have their own ecosystem. And that's what the big boys are doing.

We should really open up a discussion about what separates the small businesses from the big ones. It would really be a hit here and there are already plenty of great minds here to dissect it.

In the meantime, to the OP, consider most your value building elements, then SEO structure, visual structure, and social.

Your welcome to start one up :)

I don't mean to go off topic or hijack a thread, but social networks are so dang big.

I just got one of the daily emails from Pinterest, things I might be interested in types. Even though it's not my interest, they listed a board about neck ties, 124k followers. Really?

Just goes to show you, people can be interested in SO many things. Wonder if we under estimate the power of social most times? I think I do way to often.

Neat design, but agree that the logo need to be replaced with something more outstanding.
