The only thing I would change would be the duplication of Retail stores and Links.

Pick one as they appear at first glance to be exactly the same page with a different title! Wink

See disclaimer below!

+1

And on your "About Us"

"Over time after perfecting their seasonings they began to attending more BBQ competitions"

Either change TO or change ATTENDING. I'm not sure if that's the kind of thing you were asking about, but I know when I am looking at a product I look for how well the company is put together. That is something that would stand out to me Wink

I have slow internet so that big animated "Q" never finally loaded, I lost patience in waiting for it. I then chose the "home" button and it didn't go anywhere (I'm not a fan of the "enter here" pages. you got to grab them in a few seconds or they will get away). there's just a big "Q" on the main page with no clue what the site is. I was 2 clicks into the site before I knew what the site was about. I assumed at first it was a catering site. the site "looks" good but that big slow loading "Q" on an empty page needs work.

a lot of first time web builders start with black backgrounds so you really have to work hard at making it look like a professional site and not a template when you go that route. The "home" page makes me think this is a template and the buttons are generated from a Frontpage style navigation tree.

on the "about us" page you switch between talking about a 3rd party (they) to talking about yourself (us)

having said all that, it looks good.

Just a typo..not being picky, tryin to be helpful!

Your injector is different than my store bought injector, why Cause we only use the best! Our injectors are easy to clean, compact, and use the sharpest needle on the plant!

Plant or PLANET?

Your mixer bottle is $0.00 until in the cart


great looking graphics etc!

SLOW!!!
I have 1.2 meg 3g wireless (virgin mobile, MiFi2200) from a wifi card until I hit 5 gigs, then the rest of the month, I have 256k.
On the road (truck driver on the weekdays) I have a Sprint Overdrive 3g/4g wifi card. it gets 1.2 meg but in the real world, it gets 400k-800k 60% of the time. the rare times I touch a 4g market, I get 2.5 meg.
today, I'm at 256k. the "Q" was half loaded in about 30 seconds.

It opens up looking pretty cool, but I still want to know a little more of why
I'm there - i.e. "Kosmo's Q vends the best rubs and injection mixes in our solar system".
I don't want to arrive at your site, and then start plugging away at what
it may offer me. Good luck, It sounds like exciting times for you and yours, right now!

I'm reading the products. they dont explain how it tastes. how it's different.

example:
Quote:
WANT AMAZING CHICKEN? Our Chicken Soak will make the difference! Add moisture and flavor to any cut of poultry! With our easy to use instructions you will get extraordinary results from ordinary meats. Our Chicken Soak will change everything you thought you knew about Chicken, not only on Competition BBQ but backyard barbecuing as well. (CONTAINS NO MSG)

all those words don't say anything. is it a brine? is it spicy? what is it?

Needs some work, lot of missing punctuation and the type (body) is too small.

The "about us" information (the only part I read) needs to be broken up so it is easier to read and understand...needs a LOT of punctuation corrections.

Here are a "few" spelling errors.

"invite" should read "invited"..."Competition" should read "Competitions"

Not a BIG deal (unless one wants 11,111 units) but your on your order page (yes, finally read it) in the quantity ordered for the "competition box" is defaulted to "11111" units instead of "1"

It loaded pretty quickly for me... and I don't have much under the hood.
Overall... I really like the looks and theme. It screams BBQ but it took me a little while to figure out exactly what your offering.
I didn't study every page but I noticed the white font color over white background on the online store.
