    Are you selling web design services?

    Your site is not cohesive. The design is all over the place making it feel very disorganized. Your choice of font colors is odd and again, not cohesive. I am not sure what you're attempting to accomplish. It just looks and feels very unfinished, so unfinished that I am not even sure which direction to point you in so that you can finish it.

    The "sell" button seems to go to the same page as the "buy" button.

    I think it will help tremendously if you tried changing the fonts and their sizes so there is more of a structure, it is indeed not very cohesive, I stared at the homepage for 15 seconds and still couldn't understand what is going on. It is off to a good start of an iweb site though!

    Okay, take no offense, but it now looks even worst. The paragraph you've added is badly written by a 10 year old, very unprofessional in my opinion. I'd reduce it to a quick sentence and consider placing it elsewhere, it looks extremely out of place right below the "buy" and "sell" buttons. Also a bigger and more interested font might help.

    Also, I'd erase this "Buy a listing package ⇒ List your website or domain "

    The "buy " and "sell" icon buttons above goes to the exact same page, you have created nothing but complexity and confusion.

    First thing that jumped out at me: "Marketplace" not "Market place"

    It looks a lot cleaner now, I like it! Remember just experiment with different ideas you have, see what looks good and what doesn't. No one gets it right on the first try!
