BTT's Opinion for Jim Syyap CopywritingDesign 1/5 ★★★★★
There is nothing wrong with minimal design but sometimes too plain is equivalent to boring. Looking at the site feels like I'm in a white walled room with no doors and windows. Just a tip, we are now leaving in an era where sites doesn't need to be just ordinary sites. Users and visitors needs action, a clicking move, a wow factor! Try adding more colors to your site and it would really help. Now if you're sticking with white, then I'll tell you a secret, in designing there are different kinds of white (dirty white, lightgrey, very light grey etc), though they may not be the whitiest white, I'm pretty sure that you'll find the right shade for you and achieve the same effect for your taste. :)
Branding 2/5 ★★★★★
What's with the banner? What was your blog all about? Though I love the tag line "Insider information on how you too, can grow your business with effective marketing" since it gives all the information that I need to know, the title itself was missing. Where is the title? The current banner appears to be an advertisement for me.
Content 5/5 ★★★★★
I'll give you a perfect score for this one. Taking your genre in consideration, I must say that you speak like a pro. Reading your blog teaches me a lot of things, You have a gold on your posts so make sure to make it shine even more!
Audience Impact 2/5 ★★★★★
Honestly I find it hard to judge this one since the statistics are confusing, why? It's because of this, you are using a blogger stats counter and as far as I know, the starting value of that could not be set. That means that the value 13K+ is the actual visitors you have for 5 months. Making a calculation, that means that you're getting a fair amount of visitors. But seeing your site, I find a less activity around it.
UPDATE: I just thought that blogger's statistic can be cheated by using the auto-refresh page script and setting the configuration to track your own IP.

Design 1/5 ★★★★★
We consider less is beautiful however, being plain is another story. I understand that the blogger needs to be in a formal mood to send across his message effectively. nonetheless, the white background and the black font color did not help in achieving that mood. I suggest that you play around with different font sizes to emphasize valuable points. you might want to check malcolm gladwell's blog (http://gladwell.typepad.com/), paulo coelho's blog (http://paulocoelhoblog.com/), daniel pink's blog (http://www.danpink.com/), just to name a few, on how they effectively use font sizes to attract reader's attention to read their entire posts.
Content 5/5 ★★★★★
The content is impressive. It is very informative. The blogger has superb writing skills.
Branding 1/5 ★★★★★
Boring as if I am on a newspaper column. You have to be distinct from other marketing blog and you can only do it if you have your own brand that would represent you just like the swoosh in your cross trainers, the champion on your sleeves or the marker symbol on your fountain pen.
Audience Impact 2/5 ★★★★★
It did not catch my attention at first. You have to be catchy to get viewers. It would be better if the reader could get the gist of your post in 15 secs otherwise they won't bother to read it.
I'm a little confuse with this blog, my tools says that it is using IIS and ASP but the page is hosted on Blogger. Anyway, reading your content, I found a nice term called 5-second test. On what I know, it is the time needed to attract the user on what he or she is seeing. Taking that in mind, even though you have great contents, you will fail this one. I greatly recommend to read this review for your own good, and hope you take this one positively :)
