Your website and especially your homepage can no longer just be an online brochure, you need to give people a reason to come back and stay engaged with you. Here are some examples of how you can do that.
First is Travel With Talek. She’s a travel blogger and she’s always sharing her newest content right here on the front page where it says, “Read about my recent travels.” This content is being updated every two weeks with her newest post. This way whether it’s a new visitor or a returning visitor, they’re always seeing the most current information.
Next is Ruth Malkin, she’s a realtor. She does a great job of showcasing her recently listed properties right here on the front page slider. It makes visitors stop, see what property she has listed and click to learn more if they want to.
If you’re in eCommerce, you definitely want to bring people back to your site so they’ll order again. Black Milk does a great job of integrating their Instagram feed right to the front page of their site so that you can get a feel for the type of clothing they offer, and I really like how they’ve incorporated this hashtag and it really stands out so that you can engage and shop with them on Instagram as well. They also do a great job of featuring their sales right here in front and center, and even have limited time specials like only this weekend so it makes you want to come back again to see what the next great offer may be.
Finally, The Pineapple Thief, the whole frontage is all about social. So front and center they have a video that’s coming in from YouTube, it features new albums of picture so you’ll want to come back and see more. It has a newsfeed going right down the middle so that content is always being updated. On both sides they have integrated social media feeds, here there’s Twitter and here there’s Instagram.
All of these sites, these are great examples of how to change your content regularly to bring visitor back again and again. Changing content, it’s a great way to show that your small business is active and keeping your homepage fresh.
