Your homepage is one of the key pages on your website. It’s often the starting point for visitors and therefore viewed most often. So what should your homepage communicate?
Your homepage should:
- Introduce the purpose and scope of your website
- Set the tone and build credibility
Important homepage elements:
- Header and footer
- Logo and tagline
- Clear menu and table of contents
- Company overview
- Key benefits you offer
- News, events and announcements
Like other pages, keep the design and messages simple, and use small images so the homepage loads quickly. Also, use direct, simple sentences.
Every slight improvement to your homepage’s web content will help you create a good first — and lasting — impression.
