Hi All,

Due to not having a large budget for website I had a basic design done for me and have just recently updated all the content and images and am looking for feedback.

7 months ago I was made redundant and decided to start my own Computer Repairs & IT Services business as I have worked in that line of work for the past 12+ years. It has at times been slow but starting to get regular returning customers now and some commercial so business is picking up.

Perhaps there's a service you would expect from this sort of business that's not listed on my website or anything other sort of feed back would be greatly appreciated.

Look forward to hearing from some of you :)

Pricing seems a bit cheap? I would have expected business IT support to be more around the $140-150+gst? But then I don't know your target market very well. 


Why the different pricing? Doesn't seem to be any difference to paying 'business rates' eg no faster onsite service. What do I get for the extra money?
What do you charge a small business (1 man band) working from home? Are they business or personal? 


Website seems to load pretty slowly. What's it built in and where is it hosted? 


Good luck! Above feedback is just what jumped out at me.

Given my work recently paid $150/hour for a senior cloud/server engineer from a multinational, I think his current pricing is about right.

Information wants to be free. The Net interprets censorship as damage and routes around it.

There seems to be a bit of repeated content. Eg the pricing page states what your rates are twice. I would cull that out.
And yes, spell out the benefits of higher pricing as has been mentioned already.
