Terrific Design Tip # 1
Place most important offer, feature or product of your site closer to top of page. Give it prominence so visitors will not miss it. Having a big logo taking all valuable space at top of your web pages will not help your bank account. The upper section of your page is first thing that your prospective clients will see as soon as they enter your site and this will be area that will determine if they stay to see what else you have to offer or they proceed to next website. To get maximum impact, I suggest use of a Flash banner to really get attention of site visitors AND to help capture lead information!
Check out following sites that use Flash banners:

Terrific Design Tip # 2
Your site has to have an email capture form. This is one of most important components of your website. If you have plans of making money from it then lead generation strategies should be incorporated into your main page, preferably closer to top. You can do this in a form of a newsletter signup area, client survey form, contest entry form, information request field or a simple guestbook. The key is to give people good reasons to want to complete these forms. Make an offer to get them to do so, and assure visitors that their information will NOT be sold to third parties.
If you don't know why you need to capture your client's email address, I suggest you learn more about online marketing with email and how to build an in-house client email list. Start by purchasing a book by Dr. Jeffrey Lant called email "Email El Dorado". You can learn more about book and order at - https://secure.incor.com/mlmprofit/books.htm
