To make himself known, a merchant will set up a store and make an attractive window display. This is how his customers will notice him. Well for you, it's the same! Your website is your shop window, but online.
When you are satisfied with a service or a merchant, what do you do? You recommend it to your friends or you leave a review on the internet. The same goes for your website. The more visible you are on the web, the more people test, give their opinion and testify of the quality of your service.
Having a website is good, but it is better to be visible! We are talking about natural referencing or SEO. This point is a thorn in the side of many entrepreneurs who do not see the value of working on it. SEO, when it is well done, allows you to appear on the first page of Google search results.
From your website present your services, your achievements, your skills, etc.. Prove that you are an expert in your field to bring confidence to your customer. Tell your story on your website, add customer reviews, photos: in short, show yourself and stand out!

Overlap is the overlapping of several graphic and/or textual elements, such as a background image, text, illustration and buttons on top. This technique gives the user a dynamic feeling and makes navigation more fluid and pleasant.
Small statistical point:
It is now a fact that our brain remembers a visual, an image much better than a written or heard text. The impact of an image will therefore be much greater and its meaning understood more quickly than a text. Remember that only 10% of people remember information presented orally three days after receiving it. Similarly, if you combine a visual with text, more people will retain the information. For example, with a photo, 65% of people remember the topic three days later.
So, to make your website "memorable" don't forget that images and animations immediately catch the eyes of visitors.
