Landing page is needed.
I'm open to creativity, as I would like a website that really shines.
This page needs to catch the customer's attention, and make them curious about the business (as it is a new concept).
It needs to be light and friendly, with a beautiful glossy feel.
The homepage will tell customers what we're all about.
**It needs to grab their attention and keep it.**
---Home page will consist of:
~Top Banner - Logo, Join Us button, Contact Details + icons (Phone: 1300 LALALOU | Send us an email)
~Sign In and My Account links / buttons
~Header bar: Home, About Us, Memberships, Specials, Competitions, Suppliers, Corporate, Testimonials, Ask an Expert.
~Search Form (search our suppliers) with a search button on the bottom right hand corner. Search form to have banner at the top of the search form with a graphic of a magnifying glass (or something similar and cool)
~2 small boxes under the search form, one saying 'New Businesses' where new business logo's will slide across, the other saying 'Calculate Your Savings' with an icon of a calculator / money / something cool)
