There are some things a website design must do in order to draw potential customers to your site and carry them through to the conversion stage of making a purchase.

Here are 5 things your homepage must do:

1. ENABLE MOBILE USER ABILITY

With so many people nowadays using mobile technology to access information and obtain products and services, your homepage should be designed with mobile users in mind. Make sure that your homepage can be easily viewed on different types of mobile devices and is presented effectively on smaller screens.

2. PROVIDE EASY NAVIGATION

3. CLEARLY IDENTIFY COMPANY BRAND AND VALUE PROPOSITION
