The Hero Divider is one of the most utilized design features with the Brilliant Directories platform. It is a great way to teach new website visitors what it is they can do on the site. It is also one of the first things they see, taking up some of the most valuable real-estate on the website, both for desktop view and mobile devices.
Brilliant Directories have been asking to convert this section into a great opportunity to add high-quality call-to-actions that are clickable. This increases page views and helps the end-user find what they are looking for quicker.
