Dump Your Homepage Slider

Do you just love your homepage slider?  Its big, beautiful and looks so cool right?

Well, it might look cool but it is killing conversions and actions on your home page!

In this weeks video we talk all about hompage sliders, why they don’t actually work and what to do instead.

We have been advocating against sliders for a while now but lacked hard evidence to support our hatred.  Luckily the folks over at LeadPages wrote an amazing blog post all about it.  We highly recommend you visit the post and read it for more detail… of course you should watch the video first.
