    Looking at it from the viewpoint of someone who uses these services, the first thing I looked for was some kind of "Sign Up Now" or "Buy Now" button. Most of your target audience knows the benefits of directory submission and won't really look at the literature.

    They want three things (which should be obvious on the home page)
    1.) How do I sign up?
    2.) What directories will you be enrolling me to
    3.) Frequently Asked Questions

    These should be prominent (Especially #1)

    PS. On the end of the directory list where you have links to other listings, you should have Padawans as its pretty comprehensive ;)

    Copy that.

    Spell it out for the visitor.

    Change those three coloured boxes and give it a 1, 2, 3 header.

    1, What is it? We do diretcory submissions...

    2, Which directories? These 4 big ones and this list...

    3, Submit your site now! Only $30, click here and get cracking...

    And then top and right nav with full articles etc.

    I also don't like those cheesy stock pictures of people smiling. That may just be a personal preference so I wouldn't change it unless a lot of people agree.

    Personally I think they drain away the personality and your own design would be better for "Branding" purposes.

    I like everything on your site. The text , however, could probably use some work. They don't look very organized. The main body text have different font size, and that looks weird. Alos, maybe you should have the green, orange, and blue box the same size?

    I think the site looks pretty good. I don't really mind the smiling people...as long as they are cute girls.

    I would like to see the three colored columns on the bottom run the full height of that div or whatever they are contained in. It looks a little broken up as it stands (checked it in IE and FF and it looks the same in both).

    Also, I agree with YFS1 and Tops. I would also put something on the front about how many directories you submit to and if they are all cached in Google, Yahoo and MSN, I would say that. Something to give a person a reason to use you. Like me for example. Looking at your site, I realized how much I have been lagging on my directory submissions. So, maybe you should have "bulk" pricing for donkeys like me. :)

    Make sure you have the top image (smiling people!) the same width as the tables below it, atm you have a bit of table (the blue one) poping out.
