How to Make Your Homepage Persuasive

Quoting Got _ Griffin
I've been wondering this for a while, is there anyone who can give some help about this?

I'm no Phipson, But I like to help as much as I can. May I ask what you mean by persuasive? First off, if your put pictures of your mocs on your page, PUT A LINK TO IT. It always annoys me when I see something cool on someones page and then I spend eons looking for it in there 150 creations. Don't ask people to comment on your mocs. (Like, look at all my cool stuff!) A group or something is okay, and also I don't mind it when people say they hope you enjoy their mocs, or that comments are appreciated. You don't need much stuff on their, the shorter the better methinks, because no one, (at least a good many people I know including me) don't want to have to scroll through a whole book worths of text and pictures. The shorter time they have to scroll, the sooner they see your stuff and possibly comment on it. I've honestly started to read some ones homepage, then I stopped and scrolled down to see how long it was, and once my finger got tired, (I never did reach the bottom) I just left. Cool text photos aren't needed, but if you think they are cool, go for it. I like them, (some) and it doesn't matter if you have that on your wall. Good colors. Match it with your text, make it look good. It has to (sort of) blend. If it's a colored mumbo jumbo mess that mesmerizes people while they read it, it's not good. At. All. that's just my two cents. Hope you found all of that ^^^ helpful. Have a great day!

In general, I think most MOCpages members enjoy seeing a home page that tells a little bit about the builder behind the MOCs. I don't usually recommend a lot of info, but inspirations and subject preferences are always interesting, info about upcoming work can be a plus.

I'd recommend a few additional pictures of WIP, or perhaps some of your best creations, or maybe your work space. I'd also suggest staying away from too much text (being long-winded), and DEFINITELY avoid non-Lego related topics or HTML extras like counters, banners, etc. Those are frowned upon by Sean, and they're a huge turn-off for most members.

If you update your home page regularly with current events, you'll also find people coming back to it more frequently to see what's new.

Just my .02 on the subject.
