Make 2014 A Banner Year for Your Website

There are scads of elements that can go into the creation of a successful website for your business. Everyone knows that SEO is important, that an intuitive design is key, and that calls to action can be your best friends. But one oft-overlooked website component is one that’s all but guaranteed to catch a visitor’s eye the second they first reach a site: the top banner.

Adding a banner to the top of a web page can serve many purposes: it can highlight your products, advertise specials and promotions, or show off your best-sellers. It’s even possible to measure the number of clicks a banner gets, so as to measure how effectively it engages your visitors.

Like almost all aspects of your website, your banner can be customized and changed as needed. It can be a single static image, or rotate through multiple slides to show several facets of your business.

Below are four examples of effective, attention-grabbing banners from websites built by Ecreativeworks.
