Take a look at your website with the eyes of a drunk.
A user should be able to look at a page and instantly recognize what is the path he is supposed to take.
So, here is a question for you:
Can a user go through your conversion funnel without being able to read a single word on your website?

There is an easy way to check if this is the case:

- You can navigate the full website without taking dozens of screenshots
- You can click on any element and actually go through the conversion funnel
- You can activate it and deactivate it at any time with 1 click
Once you find some elements on you website for which you want to improve the visual hierarchy, here are a few things you might want to play around with:
