It’s more work at first, but it can offer two experiences to two different sorts of people." (Source: In the Middle, Starting ) I built this WordPress plugin to implement Seth Godin’s idea.
One of the most important elements of your web site is the "call to action." Your site may have a compelling headline that grabs your visitors' attention.

Back in June, Iyov posted an excellent photo essay titled "Bible paper bleedthrough," using photos from my review of Cambridge's Pitt Minion NKJV to illustrate just how bad the problem of thin, translucent Bible paper really is. In my review, I described the paper as "relatively opaque," saying the ghosted print image from the reverse of the page was "faint, and not pronounced enough to be distracting." Iyov then used the photos illustrating the review to argue that my assessment shows just how far we've sunk: "...we have become so accustomed to bleedthrough that four layers of text can quality as 'relatively opaque.'"
