Hi everyone, and thanks for your help in advance
I am a English to Spanish translator who is relatively new to the freelance world. I have just launched my English website and I would like to have some professional opinions from colleagues. As you can see, I'm keeping it as simple as possible for the moment.

It looks good and professional to me But maybe you can make it more appealing with videos.

Sound Jun 4, 2015

Maybe the best word I can find to describe your website. It looks clean, essential and extremely bright.
I read you are a SEO and marketing expert, so I believe it would be easy for you optimizing your content according to the potential client (I bookmarked your site; I could ask you for advice, one day )
As I'm nuts about pics and graphics, I can only suggest to find a logo or a dominant theme to add on.
Good luck from a relatively newcomer in the business like you!

Silvia

Thank you both Jun 5, 2015

I do agree some graphic elements are missing. This is something I definitely have to work on, but I will have to invest in outside help as I'm not skilled in design.
Silvia, glad to help At the moment I'm mostly testing the waters and seeing what kind of opportunities emerge, but once I have a clearer image of my potential clients it will be time to tailor my content to fit their needs.

It looks really good. Jun 5, 2015

A couple of points:
You shouldn't use abbreviations unless everyone who reads your site is guaranteed to understand them. I think you should spell SEO and SEM out in full.
"Feeling classic": I don't understand this.
"Interest in", not "on".

English needs tweaking a little Jun 7, 2015

I think the structure is fine, but a few of the phrases (in addition to those mentioned by others) should be tweaked. For example,

"show your business best side" (suggestion: "show your business to its advantage)
a postgraduate course on Advertising Creativity and Planning postgraduate" (suggestion: leave out the second "postgraduate"
" Do you want your brand’s message to get to your clients loud and clear" (suggestion "Do you want your brand's message to get across to your clients loud and clear").


Good luck!
