Given that we have got an image slider on our homepage, you’d think our decision is already made. However, there is more to this debate than meets the eye. There are two points of view when it comes to carousels, and both the yeasayers and naysayers feel very strongly about the subject. We will present both takes on the topic, present our opinion, and leave it up to you to choose your side.
The Naysayers’ Opinion
The human eye reacts to movement. When it comes to carousels, they catch the users’ eye due to the constantly changing slides. The users’ attention is diverted from the other content presented on the site, and that can affect the conversion rate negatively, if the other content includes your selling proposition and call to action.
