Will Rogers, the famous 1930s' actor, said it best, “you will never get a second chance to make a first impression.”

Today, you’re not only judged by the first impressions you make with people face-to-face, but also in the digital world. Your website, emails, and social media are all an extension of your company so you want to make sure they all put the best foot forward.

According to HubSpot, the homepage is the most frequently visited page on most websites because it’s your site’s oldest link, where most direct visits end up, and the most advertised URL in marketing channels.
