No matter what the web development project is all about, you will need to get some basic information from your clients that you will need to showcase on the website. While it is a part of your job to identify what information exactly should go on the site, the basics go on the websites for most clients.

The homepage is usually the first page on the website that visitors see when they arrive on a website. The home page may be simple, but it performs a number of important functions. It sets the tone and style for the entire website. It also offers a menu that visitors can use to navigate the website.

When people search for websites on search engines, they typically open several results in the browser and then go over the results one by one.

This means that the visitors of your homepage will most likely be comparing it to the homepages and websites of your competition. For this reason, the home page needs to accomplish several different tasks. First, it needs to communicate that the visitor has arrived at the right place. For example, if the visitor is looking for emergency locksmith services, the home page needs to give brief information about the service, and not talk about all kinds of keys and locks.

People today have very short attention spans. This means that you only have a few seconds to capture the attention of your website’s visitors. The first thing the visitors notice on the website needs to convince them to read or browse further and stay on the website longer.

Contact information, including a physical address, if possible, should also be included. If the website will be collecting personal information, it needs to have a privacy policy that explains to visitors why you are collecting their data and what will happen with the data after you have obtained it.
