Websites for Magicians – A Critique

I know a lot of people feel lost when it comes to building their website. Rather than speak hypothetically I decided to critique Magician and Balloon Artist Perry Yan’s website.

In the video I talk about wordpress, wordpress plugins, browser compatibility, CSS, graphic design, search engine optimization, click paths, and more.

Part one: (The “before” website)


Part two: (The “after” website.)

Browser Testing

Sometimes browser testing can be a frustrating experience. But its better that you discover the problem instead of your website guests.

Problems that were fixed:

  • Website now displays correctly on any browser and device. This is huge, because before it would easily mean he would lose a sale because the page didn’t load correctly.
  • Broken images and links have been fixed
  • Search Engine Optimizated using the Yoast WordPress SEO Plugin.
  • Improved customer clickpath (homepage -> Show pages (magic shows / balloons) -> Contact form)
  • Website contact form has been improved
  • More consistent branding across website graphics and text
  • Fixed spelling and grammar mistakes. Improved website copywriting.

I think you’ll agree that there’s a huge improvement in this new website. If you have any questions about your website, please let me know in the comments below.
