Page Builder – Home Page

Your home page will be the first impression your potential client will get about your site. Here are a  couple of suggestions to help you prepare for building the home page.

  1. Prepare your images and text ahead of time before you sit down to build the home page. When you write your content and create your images, you need to focus on that task and not on the mechanics of loading content into the page builder. In a similar fashion, when you are entering the content into the Page Builder, you don’t want to be creating content at the same time you are doing the creative work of making the content look good. If your content is prepared ahead of time you can just cut and paste.
  2. Images will make or break your site’s image. Consider using a service like Canva.com to purchase and create your images.  Here are a couple of pointers to help keep the images looking great:
    • Use image as close as possible to the actual size needed. If necessary use a larger image rather than a smaller image.
    • WordPress will crop and resize image where necessary. However, this may result in portions of images being cut off.
    • If you have limited tools for cropping and resizing images, install the Manual Image Crop plugin
  3. If you have writer’s block when it comes to writing your content use the time tested sales formula:
    • Features – What am I offering to my clients
    • Benefits – How will my clients benefit and why should they buy my product
    • Call to Action – Never assume they prospect knows what to do next. Ask them to take action — Buy Now, Purchase Today
