Arts Front, the Business Courier’s weekly arts section, gives readers an inside view into the creative forces shaping the city. From large-scale installation art by Mark de Jong’s “Swing House” (featured on The New York Times list of 52 places to visit) or profiles of its creators behind-the-scenes, Arts Front shines a light on artistic communities within our city.
Project Pinstripe, the Business Journals’ initiative to bring consistency and uniformity across 40 weeklies nationwide, was responsible for this launch. Subscribers gain access to this project through digital editions each week.
Above the Fold
When creating a website, web designers must consider how users will perceive its content. Placing essential details at the top can make or break its success; an ideal web designer would use above-the-fold areas as opportunities to draw users in further and engage with more of its offerings.
“Above the fold” is a term taken from newspaper lingo; when broadsheet papers were sold to customers, folded so only half of their front page could be seen immediately, editors could quickly broadcast important headlines to convince customers to purchase.
Today, above-the-fold concepts have evolved from newspapers to websites. Their primary function remains engaging users, but the aim has shifted from simply providing all content in 800×600 pixels to engaging and creating intent that leads to conversions.
On Lush’s homepage, an extensive product photo immediately draws readers’ attention, and the copy below reinforces its brand message that its products are nourishing, organic, and cruelty-free. Furthermore, an above-the-fold design includes social proof and calls-to-action to encourage visitors to continue exploring further down their homepage.
HubSpot’s homepage is another excellent example, featuring an image and headline designed to promote growth. In addition, the above-the-fold design includes a CTA to download a free whitepaper – an effective strategy to increase traffic and attract clicks.
Additionally, to providing above the fold content, B2B websites should include essential information regarding their product differentiation within their home pages’ above-the-fold sections. This can help attract and retain customers resulting in higher revenue generation – significant when dealing with longer sales cycles than other industries.
B2B marketers must include clear call-to-action (CTA) statements on their home pages to ensure visitors find what they seek without abandoning the page or taking further steps. This will encourage visitors to stay on your page and take other actions.
