WELCOME

WELCOME TO YOUR HOMEPAGE

You want a guest to immediately think “I’m in the right place! Let me check out more!”

The three questions your Homepage should answer:

  • What do you do?
  • Who do you serve?
  • What makes you different from everyone else?


Most people will skim over your Homepage before they pause to read any words.That’s why you should include images, a logo, and design elements that communicate who you are, who you serve, and what makes makes you different in a single glance.



HOW LONG SHOULD YOUR HOMEPAGE BE?

 

The simple answer is: as long as it needs to be! There’s no "one size fits all" answer for page length. Some people see good results with simple full-screen slideshows. Others perform best with a long, scrolling, “one-page” feel that puts their most important information up front. Experimentation is your best tool for discovering exactly what your target market wants to see – and how much of it.

Start with a large, beautiful image (or several in a slideshow) and a to-the-point headline about your business. This lets people know they’re in the right place and entices them to see more. Other options to include are: images that link to deeper pages within your site, FX banners to add interest and break up the page, collages, sign-up forms, and text blocks that add vital searchable text.
