A business website is like an online storefront. This is how customers are attracted to your brand, store, or business. This is where you introduce your services or products, and let them know how your service or product can help them. Having a web design team in conjunction with a marketing team can make a website design for homepage conversions an easier process.
Consumers are quick to walk away from a store that doesn’t have something that interests them in a window whilst window shopping. The same rings true when they land on a website. This is why it is so important to capture them as soon as they land on your homepage and increase the chances for homepage conversions.
These are some important strategies that must be addressed on a successful website design:
Call to Actions (CTA’s)
Not only does a homepage need a call to action, but it needs to be above the fold. This means that a website visitor shouldn’t have to scroll down the page to find it. If you want phone calls, emails, people to subscribe to your newsletter, all those CTA’s should be above the fold in an easy to see button for them to click. Such as “learn more”, “call now”, “subscribe”, or “email”.
Proof Equals Trust
When someone lands on your website for the very first time, they’re not only looking for information, but they want to see that your company is one that can be trusted. This is where social proof comes in handy. This can be accomplished through many different forms. Actually, the more the better.

Use More Than Once CTA
People come to websites for various reasons. Don’t leave them with only one option. They might be a first time visitor, or maybe they’re there to leave a review, or read a blog, or to see your services. Having many CTA’s gives them many opportunities to search your site further. The key is to be user friendly. You don’t want to only give them one button, what if that isn’t what they’re looking for? Give them options, this way you can please the masses.
