If any section of your website deserves extra lovin’ (i.e. messaging attention), it’s your homepage hero section.

Keep in mind, this is an in-the-wild copy example, which means I don’t know anything about the ideal buyer or conversion context or the business’s strategy. All of the choices I’ve made so far have been based on my personal experience in this space.
So, as always, you want to make sure you do your voice-of-customer research and base all of your copywriting changes and any of your hypotheses for future tests on the data that you have about your ideal buyers.
Relying on guesses, assumptions, and gut reactions is risky.
Use your data to make more strategic choices as you optimize your copy so that you see more reliable results.
