The most important part of the website design is the home page - this is what your potential customers to see when they first visit the site. If this is not okay, it is not matter what the rest of the site is - no one ever seen! Think of your front cover books and Web as a huge bookstore.Most people in the store are there to for some time, either they are not sure what they want, or just time away.
You will not get first book that looks and reads, but their views on the book covers, until you catch their eye. You will then be up and you see the back cover for more information. If it still retains its interest, it can actually open the book. In the meantime, have also briefly on the front pages of two or three dozen books and read the back cover a dozen more.
