Sometimes it is tempting to put all of your information up front, jamming as much content onto the page as it will hold, and totally ignoring an information architecture. But that's not the best way for users to navigate your site. Take time to categorize your site's content for its users and use that as a way to drive them to other pages from your homepage. Whether it's in the form of a heading, link, or description, you'll be able to use the categories you create as a way to inform the users about the structure of your site.
Use your homepage as a way to cater to the site's users by informing them of the different types of content on your site.
Content type options: Focus Boxes, Accordion Boxes, Body Content
Content type options: Image Heading, Standard Image
Think about the purpose of your content. Is it to inform or for some type of action? Once you've determined that you'll be able to simplify it to the most basic form.
