Sorry, persoanl preferrence i guess, I leave any site instantly if there is more flash than website!

You say your going for a site with personallity and I think you acheive this with the landing page. Possibly a little bit too off the wall in that it took me a minute to realise what the 'graffitti' message was relating to. How many
But I think its flash well used imo and I like the boldness of it. Other than the graffiti page the flash screens are very effective in getting across the idea of what you do and they made me interested enough to have a quick scoot around the sections themselves.
One thing I thought was a bit wierd... why does the home page appear half way along the nav bar? Can't see any benefit to this and it threw me slightly at first.
I terms of SEO, the only thing I'd say is that your titles look click through related rather than SEO related - no keywords in the index title for example. Not that that's a bad thing if your not focusing on SEO, but I can't imagine many people will be searching for GoZapIt as opposed to "web development, SEO" etc.
I think you could do with a little more in the way of encouraging people to get in touch. At the moment it is very clear which links to click to get info from the site, but nothing made me want to get in touch or look for the contact us page. Some clear call to actions would help imo.
But on the whole, it's clean, very professional looking and fairly interesting to look at. I'd have no problem requesting your services based on visiting the site!

But my gut reaction was to initially leave when I hit that flash home page!,
Is it just me that really hates the way it's all flashy , enough to give someone a siezure when you hover back and forth over the three main sections 'website,marketing,applications' , infact i'm going to stop doing that right now, i'm starting to feel rather sick!

I appreciate everyone taking time to review the site and look forward to more feedback.
for scouseflip...I have a quick question, you mention...
Can you give me some more detail or a screenshot as I am not sure what you are referring to? Thanks for the extra help.

I just mean that the home page link is in the middle of the navigation/menu. I am used to seeing the home page as the first link in a menu so it threw me having it where it is... when I went to return to the home page first time round, I almost clicked the website button on the left. It's not a big thing and the logo still clicks back to the homepage as you'd expect, but I thought I'd throw it in there anyway

13 errors on the website page : http://validator.w3....%...ine&group=0
most seem like simple keying errors such as an extra quote mark.
You have the google analytics script in between the HTML tag, it needs to be between the HEAD tag.
the rest are ID defined errors, you have multiple elements with the same ID , an ID is a Unique IDentifier, and thus there can only ever be one element with a specific ID.
If the ID is used for CSS purposes, you need to change them to classes instead if they need the same CSS applied.
Hope this helps
