Very nice website. Your video took quite a while to load up. You might do better with a video page and have it load when the customer clicks the play button.

I like that better.

You should also consider making it about 30 seconds and have you in the video welcoming the customer and letting them know about all the great services you offer.

That could really help you sell more because people would get to know you before they even met you in person.

Ideally, I think no one will watch a video that is a commercial for more than 30 seconds or so.
