That's only correct if each individual icon represents all of your services. I doubt that's true. I assume that one icon represents one service, another icon represents another service etc etc.

There are nine images/icons on the home page - each one represents a different service we offer.

english_learn, please read the Posting Guidelines.

Thread titles should include all or part of the word/phrase being discussed.

'There are nine images or icons on the home page' would have been a good title for this.

Again many thanks for your advice. The feedback you have provided me will definitely help me to correct myself. If everyone is like you, I would have corrected myself long time ago. Really appreciate your help. Please see my full contents below. I have followed your instructions. It would be greatly appreciated if you could give a quick check. And more advice/feedback on area where I want to more focus on. Many thanks again.

"The website site for CHALLENGE LIFE is developed, but there is no contents at this stage.
As you can see, there are 9 images/icons on the home page each one representing one of our services.
Clicking on this icons will take you to respective service pages. As I mentioned before, these pages need some contents, and I hope all of you got a print copy of the page which is relevant to you or accountable for providing contents.
So, when you ready with the contents please let me know, I can assist you in uploading to the webiste.
We can make our website as a first point of contact for our customers and they can come to us if they can’t find anything on the website. So, the more we put the contents on the website the less we need to interfere with them.
It would be good if we can make this happen ASAP.

See above. Note that we generally refer to website "content" (not "contents").

Many thanks again. Thanks is not enough for this help, but I don't know better word than this to say thanks. I wish if I had you as my teacher. Big road block for my career is English. Everyday I am trying my best to improve it. Without a proper guide it is very difficult. Poverty prevent me to study English when I was child, now too much responsibilities is preventing me. Again many thanks for your help.

The sentence I wanted to say was "So, the more content we put on the website, the less we need to talk with our Customers."

Pleas correct the above if it is wrong.

You are welcome but please don't spend any more of your precious time saying thank you! Just concentrate on your English.

If you meant "talk with/to", then you needed the word "interact", not "interfere".
