Home page of the online store
The home page is the first element most often encountered by customers coming to your offer. First impressions are made only once, and so it is with the website as well. Therefore, already at the stage of designing the store, take care not only of the product sub-pages and the presentation of the assortment. Remember, it is this main page of the website that is supposed to encourage the customer to want to explore the offer further. Read about the elements you should really take care of when creating an online store homepage.
