Directional Cues


Visual elements that guide visitors toward strategic areas of your landing page, particularly your call to action. There are two types of directional cues: explicit and suggestive. Explicit cues take the form of arrows or lines while suggestive cues use imagery to subtly direct your prospect’s gaze.
