I came across Top Five Home Page Mistakes, written by Ben Hunt and I thought they were so useful that I decided to include them below.
1. Not Saying What you Do
2. The Dead Pit
3. Where are the Benefits?
4. Incredible Graphics
5. Bad Production
While you can check out the other four suggestions, I am going to speak to suggestion number 4. By incredible graphics, Hunt means a site that is overkill in the imagery. You know how you pass a car dealership with what appears to be thousands of inflatable flailing arm balloons to get you attention… yeah it’s annoying and it’s tacky. Even though you think these images are perfect and speak to what your all about, we don’t want to hear it all at once. People expect the home page to be succinct and informative, it ought to have a clean polished looked giving a feel of professionalism. If you have incredible graphics that you labored over, do not be discouraged there is a place for them. People love images so allocate a separate page titled something like “graphic portfolio” and give people the choice to review them. This is a much less intrusive way to sport your pictures and I can assure you they will be received much better in this fashion.
