“You can’t judge a book by its cover, but you can surely sell a bunch of books if you have a good one” – Jayce O Neil.
To a certain extent, the quote stands true. Some of the covers do talk about the theme of the book and tempt us to purchase it. The same logic applies to the landing page of a product or service of an organization.
