- For the header, let's do a black or dark gray background (I think he'd prefer black) with a slight sheen or shadow to it. Logo, tagline and his photo. Beneath his photo let's add "with Tom Rubens" and his phone number "937.938.0004" - with periods in between numbers
- Top nav: We want the text links to the left (with separators) and the social media buttons on the right in that same row (facebook, twitter, linkedin, rss). I hope we can find some cool icons for this one - maybe that'd be too much, I'll leave it to you. Like a stainless brushed steel look could be cool. Just sayin' :P
- Right sidebar: There will be three main sections. 1) video, 2) optin box, 3) links section. I was thinking we could do something neat (like a wrap around maybe) for the sidebar headings. The text is as follows:
you need a coach
[youtube video - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yVfeezxmYcA]
for our free 3-part series, "Embrace Your Inner Control Freak"
-- the next section will have 3-sub headings but I think they shouldn't be as prominent as the top two heading bars (maybe a slightly duller color, or something..)
strategic exit planning
(Those will just be links under the subheadings - maybe we have a cool bullet graphic?)
-- Then, for the middle content area, the top will feature a "slider" just like this site http://www.dalecarnegie.com -- so it'll be a place for rotating slides which will include a graphic on the right, a heading, 3 lines of text and a "read more" link. If you just follow his look and feel we'll be good. Below the slider, we can add checkmark bullets or whatever - just some placeholder text there really.
That's everything!! If you have any questions please let me know.
