Home slideshow

Recipe home slideshow

A home hero slideshow, also known as a carousel or slider, can offer multiple benefits if implemented correctly and thoughtfully on your website:

  1. Showcase multiple posts: A slideshow offers the opportunity to highlight multiple key messages without the user having to scroll or click.
  2. Visual appeal: Moving images can grab visitors' attention and enhance the visual appeal of your site.
  3. Promotion of products or services: A slideshow can be an effective way to promote different products, services or offers.
  4. Telling a story: By using consecutive images or messages, you can tell a story or convey a series of concepts or ideas.
  5. Dynamic content: With a slideshow, you can easily add new content or update existing content, keeping your website fresh and up-to-date.

Yet there are also some potential drawbacks to using a slideshow. Some studies suggest that they are often ignored by visitors (the "banner blindness" effect). They can also increase the loading time of your website, which can harm the user experience. Finally, they can cause accessibility problems if not implemented correctly.

So make sure you weigh the pros and cons of using a slideshow, and consider alternatives such as a single hero image with a clear call-to-action. If you decide to use a slideshow, make sure it loads quickly, is easy to navigate, and is accessible to all users.
