The Wilson Law Firm

Win VIP Box Seat Tickets to this weekend’s WMZQ Fest at Nissan Pavilion

Comments (19)

The Wilson Law Firm has just launched a brand new firm web site and while we are very proud of the product, we would like to know how you think we can improve it.  We are looking for the 2 best suggestions: ones we can actually use, ones that will be most helpful to our visitors, ones that will increase our visibility to the public.  To find these superior suggestions we are giving away VIP Packages to the top 2 suggestions!  Each of the top 2 suggestions will receive 2 VIP Box Tickets and a VIP Parking Pass to the WMZQ Fest at Nissan Pavilion scheduled for this weekend-Saturday, May 9th

Enjoy the 2009 WMZQ Fest featuring Rodney Atkins, Little Big Town, Joe Nichols, Keith Anderson and Jason Michael Carroll from a VIP box at Nissan Pavilion.  In addition to the private box seating, the VIP Box Tickets include access to the VIP lounge with an upgraded menu and a full bar, as well as wait staff service for the VIP box so you don't even have to get up to get your food and drink.  As if that isn't incredible enough, the VIP Parking Pass entitles you to use a separate entrance/exit reserved for VIP ticketholders and will get you in and out in a hurry.  Really-what could be better!?

Entering for a chance to win is simple.  Leave a unique suggestion as a comment to this blog post or email your suggestion directly to us.  Be sure to include your contact information in your post or email.  We will announce both winners on Friday morning via blog post and we will contact the winners directly to arrange delivery of the VIP tickets.

Hello! I think the website is great and very informational and would be glad to send people your way. Keep up the Great Work. Sincerely Tammy Bragg

Just thought of something else... If you sent all visitors a beer/cup holder that could be attached to either their desk and/or laptop, I'm certain their website experience would be greatly enhanced and your traffic would increase substaintally once word got out:)

Ok I'm going to bug your blog one more time...I just thought of something else. A while back a certain lawyer I know ;) gave me this really cool little cardboard gadget thingy that let you slide/line up certain stats such as your age/weight and number of drinks, etc, and it would calculate your BAC. You should add some sort of calculator like this to the top/side of your page! It would be a cool, fun little thing to pull people in, and you could have it as a search option to have people sent to your pg from google, etc. :)

Wow, everyone already took all the good suggestions:( So, I would just like to see you make is easier for people to navigate when intoxicated and driving:)

Wow, people gave a lot of suggestions!! I already gave you my two...one via email about the contrast of the colors and one on the blog... but just to add/comment about some of the ones I see on here. I see some people have commented about shortening the information and I could see how some people would be overwhelmed by the wealth of info. But I'm sure you spent a LOT of time researching and adding it all, and it's all very useful information! What may not be useful for one person, may be just what another person is looking for. So, rather than ommitting some of the info, maybe you could just make it APPEAR condensed or less overwhelming by hiding some of it....show your topic, and if the person wishes to see more info related to that topic, they can click on it and have it drop down or something??

Like the website - hope I use your services but never need them for problems. My son is getting married in five weeks and these tickets would be a great part of his wedding gift. The surprise of him receiving this package is something that be a special part of his new journey.

The page is very informative but it's a little too busy. It could be a little easier on the eyes. The left side, like a lot of people have already said is too busy. I'd get rid of that part. I hope I never have to use you *wink* but good luck with your business!

In order or importance. The first five or six are kind "tied" for importance: 1) Way too much information presented to the user all at once. 2) Too much scrolling on the main page. Keep it simple: one page. Make navigation intuitive. 3) Typography leaves a little to be desired. There are better font choices but at least make the nav menu weighed heavier. 4) Left side sections is too long; it should be collapsible (this goes with #1 and #2) 5) The left side panel appears in the markup before the main content, which means web crawlers and indexing services will index that information as more important. Also, non-compliant web browsers will see all that information first, which is not what you want. When all styles are disabled the main content should come just after navigation. 6) Give the readers' eyes a break from all that contrast and text. Add more stylizing and images to all those words. Maybe add some more color and a little less contrast. Try sprucing it up with shaded borders, corners, or watermark backgrounds. Make it inviting. 7) The "Resources" page is insanely long. Needs better organization. 8) "Library" can probably be consolidated under "Resources" as long as they're organized better. 9) Banner is probably a little too big. Also, the text over the banner never changes but the pictures do? The text is way too big; it distracts from the visual appeal of even having a banner. 10) What is "Practice Areas"? From the main page how am I suppose to know what this link is? I don't want to blindly click stuff! 11) Having a link called "Profiles" is confusing. It should probably be "Attorneys" or something more inviting like "Meet the Attorneys".

One more thing the scroll bar on the side way to long it should be broken up and put into the top with drop down bullets.

First big thing I see Google, when you google DUI lawyer VA you are no where to be seen on the page you need to buy more google words or the cheapest way to get this but the most annoying is to get people to type DUI lawyer VA and then only click on your website every time they do, that will make google push your site to the top. Free consultation should be highlighted more the box its self and the words. Practice areas should have bullet points or something sticking out saying that you practice all over VA or the largest areas you cover. Profiles your pictures should be moved to the top of the page I didn't even notice them when i first clicked on the link people like to see and know who they might be working with you shouldn't hide the pictures, alot of DUI lawyers have their picture on the main site, no offense but the pictures should look a little more professional they look like pictures done at Sears, you guys look good but they need a little something more. When you click on the link for your background there should be more pronounced information about your credentials.There is nothing that really sticks out on why you are the best or why you should be picked over any other lawyer.Like I see the part where you have gotten not guilty for BAC as high as .29 that should be more pronounced somewhere. That is things people will be looking for. Actually instead of a link that says profiles you should change that to credentials then have your photos and links to each of your credentials.Also possibly some information about your staff. I may have missed it but I dont see anything that says what kind of fines or possible jail time you may get for each charge, I know that was one big thing on my mind and alot of my friends minds when i got caught what kind of trouble am I looking at. You should have some sort of link that has the possible fines or jail times they could face. There is a lot of good information but it tends to get a little to long in areas some areas could be shortened a little. There should be some sort of area that has suggestions on how and what to look for when deciding on a lawyer. Oh and maybe a good picture of the whole staff standing together in kind of a aggressive stance but smiling for the main page. People want to feel like they have a big team behind them.

All in all the website has good content that sells your services well. There are a few of issues that might make it look more professional. First, the links running down the left side of the page are just too long. It looks cheap, for lack of a better word. Tighten it up. Since you can link all that information at the top, you don't really need to space it out as you have. Second, the grey blob in the middle of the header looks out of place. The copy is good but there must be some way of making it stand out with out the grey blob. Is The Wilson Law Firm a franchise or a local lawyer? If local, perhaps a local phone number can be included. The free book giveaway is a good idea. People who are in a situation to need your services will want that information. Make sure you keyword it for all the search engines and start linking with sites that drinkers are frequenting. I don't drink so I don't know where that would be.

This would be an Awsome Bonus/Incentive to give away to my Guest(s) or Front Desk Associates...! I Hope we Win...!

Once I see the 888 phone number, I have no idea where I am calling. I suggest putting the address under "The Wilson Law Firm" logo. This will put future clients at ease, just knowing you are a local firm. The address would show up immediately on your home page. The web site is very informative. (I would love to attend the concert) Thanks.

Although I am no expert, I find your site to be very organized and full of information. One suggestion is to organize a site map to make it easier to get to where you need to be within the site. Good luck.

I have explored the site, and while it is excellent, I would encuorage you to shorten some of your pages. most website users will look at the information presented on the portion of a page that is visible when they first arrive. some of your pages are 3 screens long. consider subdividing those pages into several smaller pages. also, I would embed links within the text of your site, linking to other pages, or opening an email to the firm. this will breakup the monotony of the long stretches of black print, and afford the user a grater degree of interactivity. The content is excellent, and I wish you all the best in your future endevors!

Thank you for the opportunity. Your website has a wealth of information and I look forward to learning more when I speak with you!

This site is wonderful I dont know much you could do to improve it.Keep up the good work. Dawn Harlow

The website looks great. The only thing I would consider you add is in the profile section. Profiles on your staff. They are the ones that make first contact with your clients and it is nice to know how long they have been with your firm and their backgrounds also.

The website looks GREAT guys!! I've clicked on the majority of your links and browsed around a lot, and it's honestly difficult to find any suggestions..I may have to dig a little deeper! ;) The only thing I would suggest is putting your address/phone#/fax# under the "contact" links, simply because that is typically where I expect to find that info on a website. (I did see that it's under "directions" already..." Good luck, I will pass this around!
