How Monica90 started their web page design journey

Company name

Virtual boards - Advisory board services

Overview

Virtual Boards is a broker of Advisory Board services (between a large pool of Directors and the client companies from the SME-Small to Medium enterprises market). We want to assemble boards (3-5 people or mentoring with only 1) for these companies. At the same time we will also moderate the board meetings (taking place via voice conf) and guide directors and clients.
So the main service offering is for client companies; the second one is to attract high calibre directors that will list their profile on the web site and will be engaged in these advisory board meetings.
The test site is already there (test.virtualboards.org). The winning logo has been created by bbueno (see his portfolio). The main pages that MUST sell are Home and Services.

The site must give an impression of professionalism, trustworthiness, but must be striking and make the visitor call us. It is unlikely that we will sell the first package over the web (given the higher price - into the thousands of dollars); this will be a possibility for subsequent sales (after the first one was done)

What I need: the Home page and the Services page. If you have suggestions for the other ones, I would appreciate them.

What is important - this is NOT a content site - I will have links to content sites, but the main goal is to become a presence and attract clients to call us and discuss their needs with us.

The site should be geared towards SEO techniques. Any ideas are welcome!

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach

2 Audiences:
1. Small to medium enterprises that will book advisory boards or mentoring (the most important one - as this will bring in the revenue)
2. Potential talented directors that will be paid to sit in the board advisory meetings (and will benefit from the SEO implemented)
The meetings will be virtual (voice conference moving towards video conference later).

Requirements

Please have SEO in mind.

What can't be changed:

The site was created using Wordpress with a Chocotheme (a bit inflexible).

Your drawing board is mainly (unless you have a super idea that will convince me to move away from this) the white part, and pls take note of the fact that the right most mark in this white part is limited - look at the first page to see how far right the two tables can go (that's the limit).

I introduced the scrolling director list (on the Home page - although the first ones are fictitious) and would like to maintain that (although it can be vertical or horizontal).

I also introduced the scrolling industries pictures (larger pictures) and am flexible in keeping/throwing that out.

Something that I had in mind (although did not get to implement it) - if you look at the traditional chocotheme, you will see the dates as a tab on the left hand side; I was thinking of having them with links to the Services...(flexible about it)

There is only one page missing at the moment - the Login page, but we will create that later.

Number of pages

2

Page descriptions

Home Page:

Must sell the services (Client services for Advisory boards) and to attract directors to register with on the site.
If you have suggestions for other widgets on the right hand side (where the calendar is) - pls let me know.

Services page:
- must be crisp and clear about the services offered and easy to follow

The important pages are Home and Services, with About coming after that. The Book a board or Mentoring or Directors come below these one in importance. If you have a suggestion on the look of the other pages (although as you can see the databases are implemented with pods) I would appreciate them.

Existing website

test.virtualboards.org

Pls see the logo that I chose for the Virtual Boards title attached. This will replace the current one (Virtual Boards(T)).

Example websites

Please don't look at any Chocotheme sites, as they are blogs mainly and that's not what I intend to have on this site.

Not sure - I am not impressed with sites that offer consultancy or legal advice - usually they look boring or blend to me. Will let you know.
