During the holiday shopping season you'll want to remind your visitors to buy as many times as possible. A gallery banner is a great way to add visual interest to your layout as well as remind visitors to shop.
Content for your banners is completely up to you. It can be applied as a default for all your galleries, or you can have a custom one for each gallery you have. We recommend something bold and visual to catch the viewer's eye and including some sort of a call to action that will encourage people to click. Here are some content ideas:
When: August - September
Why: Great reminder that it's time to get those holiday portraits ready for their holiday cards.
What: Offer a discounted mini session, or some sort of incentive to book as soon as they see the banner.
Where: Have this click through to your booking calendar or contact page.
When: October - Mid-November
Why: Great reminder that you offer beautiful holiday cards through your online store. (Don't forget to add greeting cards to your price lists)
What: Showcase some of the greeting card designs you offer.
When: Mid-November - Early December
Why: Great reminder that photo gifts are much better than anything you can buy off the store shelf.
What: Showcase some of the gifts and products you offer for sale. (Don't forget to make sure that everything you show is added to your price lists)
When: In December timed with the holiday shipping deadlines
Why: Create a bit of time pressure for their holiday shopping.
What: Showcase two banners: A "Hurry, order today" type of header with a regular shipping deadline and a "It's not too late" header showcasing the deadline for next-day delivery.
