Marquee Hire – Have various types of Marquees

Posted by on July 25, 2012 | Comments

Marquee hire has become quite popular these days and more and more people are opting to go for marquee hire when it comes to throwing a big party, be it a casual corporate, a wedding or any function. Now for all those who are planning to throw a party, is the place to inquire for marquee hire from Marquees Direct. Additional good news is that they not only give marquees for hire, they also provide furniture hire, linen hire, dance floor hire etc.

One look at the homepage and you do not need to guess what it is all about. The homepage looks exquisite and appealing to the eyes. Introductory paragraph defines the purpose of the website very well. The format is easy to eyes and has an amazing aesthetic look with some great content and eye catchy photos of different marquee setups. The pictures of different event set ups make the homepage look extravagant and instantly arises an interest of exploring more in the website. The pictures are so beautiful that any person would give it a thought to make a fast enquiry. All the menus and headers are placed at the right positions. The page “Pricing” gives information about the charges that is based on the kind of marquees one is going to hire. The section “Events” has detailed information on the type of marquees provided by the company. There are different types of marquees, wedding marquees, corporate marquees, themed marquees etc. The section “Service” describes all the marquee hiring services offered by the company. The section “Venues’ of the website provides one the facts of the existing venues at various places to organise events.

There is a list of products offered by the company which appears on the left and each option has been hyperlinked. This is a great feature as it allows any interested person to choose the desired product without having to go through all the web pages. Then, there is list of links coming under the header “information’. Every link takes you to the page for the relevant information. I liked “FAQ” section as it gives answers to all the common questions related to marquee hire. “Booking with us” guides you on how to book their services. I liked the Facebook widget right on the homepage that lets the customers know the latest updates. The only thing that I missed is a blog section which would have been a great place to share the latest news in the marquee hire industry.

Content wise, the website has some great content apt for every related topic. The website clearly reflects how well it has been planned and designed. The website very well reflects the actual essence of the matter which shows in the layout and the content. All the pages are downloaded fast. I am also happy because there are no pop up messages or advertisements that takes your attention away from the actual matter. In a nut shell, the website is great in terms of design and layout. The owners must keep up the good work.

Marquee Hire

Posted by on June 5, 2012 | Comments

There are a number of websites that you know exactly what they are before you even get to them. Marquee hire is quite simple and straight forward and had it been anything but that I would have been taken aback.

So, one aspect which leaves me mad is when a site is littered with ads all over it and it prevents your access from the meat of the website. This site doesn’t do that and, in fact, the ads are positioned where they ought to be. Major crutches for that.

The basic objective of the website is to make you hire marquees directly without having the hassle of going round the town to select designs and colour schemes. The site displays a variety of products which includes marquees, lighting, heating and furniture too. In short, it is a one stop destination for making all your arrangements for any kind of events – marriages, birthday parties or even corporate events.

Now coming back to the website (which of course is the topic of this review!!!), it has got a very simple three column layout. The content is placed in the centre with links on both sides. Although most of the links are pretty interesting and useful, a lot of futile links have been also added towards the bottom of the page. The left side contains links regarding products and several other frequently visited links. The right side is filled up with the Photo Gallery links and archive links beside some other links.

Talking about the content of this website, there is no shortage of information on it. In fact, the home page itself looks so full of information that the readers will have to keep their eyes wide open to take in the content. On the home page, a lot of claims by the company are listed (I’m sorry I have no test to establish its genuineness!!) underneath a flash slideshow of some really beautiful marquee designs. The flash content, in fact, helps the readers to take their mind of the boring claims.

Navigation is pretty simple through the site. The navigation bar at the top is well positioned and visitors can easily access all the pages of the website. The site also loads pretty fast and this shows that the website is well built from the scratch.

The website appears pretty drab and boring at first instant. There is not much use of colours. In fact, the entire website is built with a single colour. There is no banner or poster to distinguish the site at first look. In fact there is not a sign of uniqueness. The only good looking thing about the site is that it is completely loaded with loads and graphics. There are beautiful pictures of marquees posted all over the web site.

Another pretty boring aspect of the site is its blog. It is rather for promotion purposes and not for blog writing at all. Overall a 3.2/5 for this site.
