Post your landing page here, I'll roast it for you.

Hi, I'm Sewell Stephens. I'm the owner of Sewell Stephens software. More on that at https://sewellstephens.com. I am roasting landing pages here since I don't see other people doing it as much as I wish.

Just post your landing page below and I will give you an outline of what I think looks good, what needs changing, and what could be improved.

Here are the guidelines:

First, make sure the link is actually a link. I see where some people forget to put the protocol before the link. For instance, if I just sewellstephens.com or www.sewellstephens.com, that may not be recognized as a link since webpages aren't search engines. To ensure the link actually works, type https:// before the link.

Second, please only post landing pages. This group is called "Landing Page Feedback", not "Web Page feedback".

And that's all. Now it's time to post your landing page. Have fun.

  1. 4

    @Sewellstephens Thanks a lot for doing this post!

    I would love to hear your feedback on my product ruttl.
    Here's the link to the landing page -> https://ruttl.com/

    Thanks! 👋

    1. 2

      Ruttl would be a nice tool to roast a landing page with. Maybe it could be the official roasting platform of IH :)

      A couple of bits of feedback if that's ok..

      1. The video above the fold: it plays automatically, which took my attention immediately away from the header and subtitle I hadn't finished reading. I'd have prefered the option to start it myself. Secondly on the same video, its quite long and not pulling me in. Without any sense of time and no obvious visual pacing, I'm having to work hard to take it all in and figure out what you want me to take away from this video.

      2. You give an option to watch a Demo video above the big GIF. It's not clear how this is different. Why have both? Which one is better (as in - leads to more conversions?). Test it and I'd bin the other one or at least move it somewhere else in the page and use more space ATF to test other content-conversion rates.

      3. "ruttl is a website feedback tool that helps you to comment directly on live links and make real time edits." I would trim the excess off this and keep it super super simple. Something like:

      The <differentiator> feedback tool that works the same on ANY website.

      Where <differentiator> is 'fastest' or 'easiest' or whatever you claiming is better than your competitors.

      1. Why "Review Live Websites" and not "Review ANY website". The word "website" implies to me that its live anyway. The selling point of Ruttl seems to be that you can review any site - your own or someone elses.

      2. I don't see much positioning against your obvious competitor's tools. Might be worth getting ahead of this because people will be wondering this from the second they understand what Ruttl is. A the end of the page you position Ruttl as "whiteboard", but this feels at odds with the initial positioning of LIVE website feedback at the top. Pick your position and make it super clear.

      3. You say it is the future of feedback tools, but I'd push to spell out why this is true. The site looks great, I trust the message i'm getting because the design is so tight, the typography and colour choices - all communicates the right thing to me.

      Is the fact it works on LIVE websites the main differentiator? Is no one else doing this? Who actually are the competitors.. ?

      Hope that helps :)

      Hi, the site looks really good. The first and only thing that put me at all off guard is the "Contact Us" button on the header/navigation is a bit out of place. Other than that your product looks good. I hope this helps

    3. 1

      It looks quite good man.

    1. 2

      Hi, just signed up since it seems useful. Anyway, your landing page looks good. The yellow color at the bottom looks a bit odd. Other than that everything looks good.

  2. 2

    If you're doing any marketing or promotion on reddit let me know what you think: https://replytool.app/#/

    1. 2

      As a potential user of this in the future after I release my MVP, I won't use it because it is only an app. If it would have a web version, it would be a no brainer. But forcing people to work from the mobile phone, I think it will drive quite some people away.

      I can see it being a popular marketing tool, for marketers, but not many people feel very comfortable working on their phone all the time.

      1. 1

        Thanks for the feedback Vlad. I appreciate it. We'll have a web release soon. I'll be sure to ping you when we're ready!

    2. 2

      I think this tool looks great. Maybe one thing you could do like a lot of Indie Hackers suggest is add social proof. Like maybe add some testimonials. Other than that this tool looks great

    Hey @Sewellstephens

    I would love to have your feedback on my product Collab-n-Learn

    Link => https://collabnlearn.com/

    Thank you in advance for your effort & time.

  4. 1

    I'm working on a Feedback management service https://productroad.com
    Could you review the home page?

  5. 1

    Hey @Sewellstephens would love to know what you think about my landing page https://cryptofonts.com/
    Thanks :)

  6. 1

    I'm a bit late to the party but curious to hear your feedback on https://inboxtarget.com -- we're hoping to "launch" in the next 2 weeks so the more eyes we get on it the better. Thanks in advance!

  7. 1

    I'd love to have mine roasted https://bien.ee. I've tried to make it so simple that it couldn't be roasted, but any improvements I could make, I would still like to make.

  8. 1

    Hey, need your feedback for conveythis.com if you have time.

    1. 2

      I clicked the how it works expecting to go on a "how it works" page, but it wasn't a link :D

      1. 1

        Great catch! Should be fixed now.

    2. 2

      Hi Alex, I think you should change the images because that is not relevant to the big picture or context. And maybe you can move down the website traffic chart for makes same line with the "web sites translation grow sales". And if you do the same size the grids in "our integration" chapter that will be cooler. Best Regards.

      1. 1

        I changed some wording and tried to move the chart again.
        But, that's a good point. Thanks for sharing!

  9. 1

    I run a project all about skipping small talk to make more meaningful connections:

    https://makebigtalk.com

    Roast away! :)

  10. 1

    This is the landing page for a course I just launched:

    https://codewithandrea.com/courses/flutter-animations-masterclass/

    I would appreciate some “roasting” as that will tell me if I’m missing sales due to some silly reasons (I’ve been learning but I’m not a web developer/copywriter/marketer).

    Thank you!

  11. 1

    Hey @Sewellstephens, does it have to be a landing page ?
    I have a one page web app tradeplan.io in early beta. Would appreciate all the feedback I can get. Thanks

  12. 1

    Hi,
    Great idea !

    You can check my landing page www.thegaragestudio.co

    Thanks

    1. 1

      Hi Lamacorn, Thats so simple, basic landing page and thats cool. I love that. Congrats.

  13. 1

    Not posting as it takes lot of time for those who posted. Nice effort Stephen. Hats of you for replying to people who commented.

  14. 1

    It's more of a template but appreciate any feedback :D

  15. 1

    Hey Sewell,

    Thanks for doing this! My landing page is 👉 https://notosite.com

    1. 1

      Hi, I think your site needs some work. The first thing you might want to do is capitalize the letters at the beginning of sentences. That one problem draws attention away from your product. The next thing I would do is maybe make your logo in the corner more readable. The logo is too hard to read. Although please don't do that by making the logo bigger because that would make the header look weird and lopsided. Instead, I would recommend maybe in your case create a more readable logo or adding text in the corner instead. Also, you need to cut down on menu items. Preferably add a more icon that brings down a dropdown with more items or maybe a page if you can't do that. I also can't read the text in the image on the homepage but I don't know if that counts since that's a different page. Those are the main things I would fix preferably and I hope this gives you a good rundown. anyway, I need to go since I have a big chunk of comments I need to reply to so bye for now and have a great day.

  16. 1

    Would love you to roast www.thebold.app ;)

    1. 1

      Hi, your landing page looks great. The first thing I would fix is the slideshow at the bottom is formated wrong on the homepage. The only other thing to note is your link didn't work. Please put the protocol in front of your links so they work properly. More about that above in the post. Other than that everything is great.

      1. 1

        Thank you, appreciate your time and feedback!

      Hi and thank you, your landing page looks great. The only thing I would change is the button colors look a bit weird. The blue and brown granite colors don't really go together. Other than that everything looks great.

      1. 1

        +1 on the button colors. And the UI of the product looks pretty similar to Postman. (although this has nothing to do with the landing page)

    1. 1

      Hi and thank you, your landing page looks great. I'm going to tell you the same thing I told the person above you. Your button granite colors don't really go together either, unfortunately. The dark blue and white look a bit weird together. Other than that everything looks great.

      1. 1

        I will give a review to the colors, Thank you! :)

  18. 1

    Thanks @Sewellstephens for doing this.
    Here's our landing page: https://botamp.com
    Would love to have your feedback on it.

    1. 1

      Hi, your landing page looks great. The only thing I would change is the profile pics in the testimonials section look like the people maybe had forced facial expressions. I've never really been a fan of forced facial expressions but that's your call. Other than that everything looks good.

  19. 1

    Thanks for doing this @Sewellstephens!
    We made an add-on for syncing bank data with Google Sheets and this is our landing https://tryhorizon.co

    1. 1

      Hi, your landing page looks great. The only thing I'm going to note is the bottom of the page looks a bit bare. Other than that everything looks good.

    1. 1

      Oh hi and thank you. Your landing page looks good. I think the only thing you should maybe change is that the button text isn't as readable as it could be. I think a thin font would be better. Other than that everything looks great.

  20. 1

    https://www.telephony.cc/ thank you in advance for your feedback!

    1. 1

      Hi, I think your landing page looks good. It looks a bit bare although. I think maybe adding more elements would be nice. Other than that everything looks great.

    1. 1

      Hi, your landing page looks good. I'm going to tell you the same thing I told the person above. I think adding more elements would be nice for you too. Other than that everything looks great.

    Would be great to hear your feedback -- deepgratitude.tech

    1. 1

      Hi, your landing page looks good too. I hate to say this for the third time in a row but your landing page looks a bit bare too. Also, your link in the comment didn't work. Please make sure to add the protocol to your links to ensure they work. Other than that everything's good.

    1. 1

      Hi, thank you for submitting your landing page. The only thing I would change is the above fold area is too thin. I recommend widening the div in the top area. Other than that everything looks good.

  22. 1

    Hi, been struggling to get feedback, thanks for doing this!

      Hi, thank you for submitting your landing page. I think your landing page looks a bit bare. Other than that everything's good.

    2. 1

      What source of authority are you for giving out nutrition plans? Are you a doctor? I hope you know what you're doing, playing with people's health just out of money or passion is risky. Just my 2 unsolicited cents (nothing to say about the design though, the page is light and cute, I like it).

      1. 1

        I am not a doctor (although I think the proper authority on nutrition plans would be a nutritionist).

        I'd encourage you to try the product before making knee-jerk reactions such as playing with peoples health.

        Those with particular dietary needs shouldn't be consulting anyone but an expert in the first place.

        What we provide are extremely simple boiler-plate nutrition plans that give people an outline which they can use to adopt their own healthy nutrition regimen. It is a guide, just like any general (keyword: general) nutritional information that's out there, they are guides, not exhaustive and are not meant to be blindly followed.

        Our guides are just more refined and as custom they can be based on generic biometric data.

        You should maybe think about how you word questions, if you're not intentionally trying to be condescending.

    Thanks @Sewellstephens!

    Would love to get feedback on https://smol.pub

    Thanks :)

    1. 1

      Hi, I think your landing page needs some work. I recommend adding more information to the homepage. I would also recommend adding product images. Use a service like the Icons8.com Vector art creator. If you use the free version make sure to add a link to their homepage in the footer since services like that require you to do that. Adding testimonials isn't a bad idea either. I hope this helps you and bye for now.

    1. 1

      Hi, your landing page looks great. I think maybe adding more information isn't a bad idea. Other than that everything looks great.

    1. 1

      Hi, your landing page looks good. I think the company logo centered in the above fold area looks a bit out of place but other than that everything looks good.

    1. 1

      Hi, your landing page looks good. I think the color scheme is a bit off-putting and the call-to-action button looks weird. Other than that everything looks good.

      Hi, your landing page looks good. just signed up since this looks like something I could actually use. The only thing I have to say is the page footer is a bit bare-looking. Other than that everything looks good.

      1. 1

        Thanks for your feedback. I will see what I can do here for the footer. Btw, the site is still not production ready as still in development and not launch to public yet. I will come back to you again soon maybe you can be my early adopter?

    1. 1

      Hi, your landing page looks good. The design needs some improvement and the slide show navigation looks a bit dated. Other than that everything looks good.

    Thank you!

    1. 1

      Hi, your landing page looks good. I'm not a fan of the default HTML font as the headline and on the button on the right-hand corner. The Contact option in the menu seems unnecessary as well. Other than that every thing looks good.
