In this video, you will choose a layout and add text to the homepage for your website.

Your website’s homepage is like the window of a store.

Its purpose is to grab viewers’ attention to encourage them to enter.

To begin, choose a layout for your homepage.

A layout is a pre-set format for text and images.

Discuss the text you’d like to display on your homepage with your group.

Your homepage should contain all of the relevant information about your project.

Determining which text you’d like to include on your homepage will help you choose an effective layout.

Next, add text to your homepage.

You’ve already added a title that describes your project.

Now add other important information about the project to the homepage, such as your event’s time, date, and location.

Select fonts that make important text stand out.

For example, headings and subheadings will stand out more than normal text, while titles will be the most prominent.

Now add a sentence or two to entice your audience to read more. If necessary, add a text box.

If you would like your audience to participate in your project, include a call to action.

A call to action asks people to do something specific to achieve a goal or deal with a problem.

Format the text as you would like.
