    Hi all,

    Love to get your feedback on this latest site, a customisation based on Appfinite’s Optimal child theme:

    Paradise Golf Tours

    Most appreciated!

    You did a great job. Love the green and usage of the video in place of the image slider.

    Hi Dan

    It look really good, I notice the logo is a bit blurry. You might want to try it as a .png for better quality.

    Again you did an amazing job.

    nice – how did you select a video for your featured image?

    Thanks Cynthia!

    Used a widget for the video, so no featured image. Found the code to make it responsive online somewhere (CSS tricks maybe? Can’t recall)

    Great job!  I really like the subtle color boost when you mouseover the shirts in the shop.  The colors are really soothing and clean.

    VERY professional looking and I too love the video right up front and in your face.  GREAT job!  I need to rework my front page, it’s getting cluttered.  LOL

    I love the professional look but I have a slow internet connection and the large images took a little while to load – have they been optimised?

    Thanks Kellie!

    Glad you like it – I was stuck for ages on how to draw attention to it as I did want to do something subtle, the rest of the site not really lending to anything over the top. Looks like job done then! :)

    Thank you Cheryl! The local competition for tourism based businesses can be a bit rough in this area, so we wanted to lift the game a little!

    For your own home page, I’d maybe suggest breaking the block of text up into a couple of paragraphs, it’ll make it easier to read…

    Something else I’m considering more at the moment too is the use of image galleries – Peep Laja on ConversionXL  had an interesting post on this a couple of months back, is worth a read (but of course, your mileage may vary!)

    HTH, and thanks for the feedback!

    Hi Kate,

    Thanks for the feedback and the heads up! The images have been optimised (via Smush It), but clearly some extra work needs doing. Was considering putting the site through CloudFlare once it was bedded in – guess that seals the deal!

    Thanks again!
