    Even with a wordpress theme you can still make it look outdated... Dang I didn't think that was possible.

    - No Logo
    - Poor header graphic (makes it look and feel outdated)

    nothing pops out at me showing me I should go with you. No thrills or excitement.

    I normally never comment on web designers' sites since design is highly subjective and since most designers have absolutely no idea what the hell they're talking about, but I'm going to break my rule in this case. Not because of the layout, but because of the BS.

    What BS?

    1) You're claiming to have a "team" of "professional designers" and yet you only have four "sites" in your gallery, of which one is clearly a template and quite possibly someone else's (it looks familiar to me for some reason). A team would have more than four sites.

    2) You're hosting on a free web host (000webhost.com). You expect people to pay you for professional services and you're on an amateur web host? (Yes, they have a paid option, but you're clearly not using it as I've experienced an "error establishing a database connection" 3 times in the last 5 minutes. Come on.

    3) You're using a cell phone as your contact number. "Teams" don't do that. You might get one from a member of a team, but then that team would at least have one VoIP and/or POTS office line, and likely more. (VoIP preferred because a decent VoIP provider will stomp a mudhole in a POTS provider's *** and walk it dry, but either works).

    4) Basic math. If you sell a site for $600 and you want partners, then you're going to have an extremely difficult time finding a decent partner that will customize W*rdPr*ss for a rate that will justify you making what you think is fair to interact with the client while giving them what is fair for their work. By the way, those aren't developers...they're designers. Developers actually know what they're doing.

    Simply put, you're a kid trying to make yourself out to be a big businessman. Come clean, admit you're a small-time freelancer, and you'll be better off because there really isn't anything wrong with that.
