Should You Use Sliders on Your Website?

You see websites all over the web using sliders. It is a less aggressive version of popups.

So do they work?

The short answer is yes, or else you wouldn’t see them all over the web.

The key with sliders is to make them relevant. If people see information within them that isn’t related to your website it won’t work well.

For example, if you look at TimothySykes.com you’ll notice a slider that shows every time someone sign ups for his program. This encourages others to signup as well.

With my website, which is about marketing, my slider talks about learning more marketing. This ensures that it drives leads and sales.

If want to create a slider, you can do so using Hello Bar for free. As you create a slider, make sure the information within the slider is relevant to your website.

In addition to that your landing page that you drive people to also needs to be relevant to the messaging you placed within the slider. If it isn’t you won’t drive any sales.
