I'm adding a new feature to my business website, and I'd like to let users know about it. It's kind of hidden in a menu (Finite Math -> Practice) right now, and I'm trying to figure out the best way to let people know that it's there.
The way I see it, my options include:
Promoting the "practice" section to one of the top-level menus. The only problem is that eventually I'd like to have "practice" for multiple courses, so if I do that I'd probably need to split off a top-level "practice" page that then links to individual courses.
Using a sash.
Splitting the entire site into two sections, with the front page giving visitors two options ("I want to work on practice problems" and "I want to get a tutor"). The problem with this is that it'd move my main call-to-action (submitting a request for a tutor) away from the front page, making it more work for paying customers.
What is the best way to balance letting casual visitors know about this really useful free feature, while at the same time making it super-easy for paying customers to submit a request?
