And How About a Sub-Headline?
Your home page is your most frequently visited page. To make it most effective, promote your main service or product offering here in one or two short paragraphs. A 300 x 300px image of your featured product or service can be featured on the left.
The goal in this “above-the-fold” section is to let visitors know how you can help them solve the immediate problem they’re facing and to urge them to call you, sign up or take a desired action.
Here’s a Full-Width Page Section
Full-width page sections are great for calling attention to your special offers, calls-to-action, or “request more info” and email opt-in forms. Use Post Snippets to drop the full-width page section code into your page. Then add your own content and style the colors to match your theme. It will really attract attention!
Welcome to Your Sample Home Page
The page content on this website is just for demonstration purposes only. Change it according to your needs. But before you do, browse through the entire site for instructions on completing setup of your WordPress site, tips on formatting and structuring conversion-optimized web pages, and handy resources that will help you build a profitable website.
Use the sample page layouts as a starting point, or start all over from scratch — your call. The Navigation Menu will take you to additional sample pages that are appropriate for most small businesses. To make a backup copy of a sample page before you edit it, use the Duplicate Post feature.
When editing this page in the Page Editor, use the ‘Text’ tab to preserve the formatting markup surrounding the text. The ‘Visual’ tab is a more user-friendly way to edit text, but you may accidentally delete the formatting markup. For this reason, the Always Edit in HTML plugin is being used to disable the Visual editor on this page. You can disable it on a per-page or site-wide basis if you wish.
