Some time ago, newspapers were the primary source of information for most people. Those newspapers typically were folded in half and stacked with the most important, eye-grabbing headline, photos, and graphics emblazoned at the top of the first page. That placement is an old print media term called “above the fold,” and it compelled interested readers to pick up a copy and read further.
The online world also has an above the fold location. That location is the viewable portion of a webpage after it loads and before the reader begins scrolling. Traditional thought suggests that the most important elements of a web page should appear above the fold, including a call to action (CTA). The idea is that readers see the appropriate CTA placement link right in front of them and are more likely to abide the call to action.Read More

A poorly written or poorly placed call-to-action (CTA) can be the kiss of death on an otherwise perfectly-planned marketing campaign. All the great copy you have written only goes so far if your CTA does not elicit a response.

Bounce rate. It’s almost a dirty word in the web design world. For those unaware, bounce rate is a metric measuring the number of users who visit your website but leave after viewing only one page.
But why did they leave? It’s not easy to say because it’s not always your fault. Maybe they clicked your link by accident. Maybe their cat walked across their keyboard. On the other hand, maybe it was your fault. Bad web design is a common cause of high bounce rates. It’s possible they were so turned off by your landing page that they had no recourse but to bounce as soon as possible.
You can’t reduce your bounce rate to zero. However, through the use of creative web design focused on the user experience (UX), you can decrease the number of design-related bounces to the point where your biggest culprits will be errant mis-clicks and felonious felines.Read More
