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.

  1. Decide - What do you want to promote in your custom header and where you want the link to go when people click?
  2. Create - This graphic will be displayed below your website header and can be between 200 and 800 pixels in height.
  3. Publish - Your banner can be added under the PAGE ELEMENTS Tab in Customize Visitor View. Instructions are always available in our Support Center.

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:

Book your holiday portrait session.

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.

 

Get your holiday cards.

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.

Where: Have this click through to your client access page or custom page showcasing your holiday gift guide.

 

Holiday Gift Ideas.

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)

Where: Have this click through to your client access page or custom page showcasing your holiday gift guide.

 

Shipping Deadlines.

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.

Where: Have this click through to your client access page or custom page showcasing your holiday gift guide.
