Text/images rotating on page


#1

Is there a feature in Unbounce where items (like text or images) cycle through on my page?

– Without refreshing the page (is this were flash comes in)
– The item changes upon a user refreshing the page

Thanks!

Hi lexbackpack - thanks for posting.

Unfortunately right now there is no image cycling tool available within Unbounce. However, you can use a third-party tool like SlideDeck to create the necessary image cycling sequence and then embed it to your Unbounce page using custom HTML. Alternatively, we also had a customer post about using JuiceBox with Unbounce pages on this GetSatisfaction thread as well.

To learn more about embedding third-party widgets such as slideshows on your Unbounce page, please feel free to review our Unbounce Answers page which speaks on this process.

Has this feature been updated?

Hi Steve - we haven’t focused any resources on building out an image rotator feature.

The main reason for this, is that almost all research shows that it usually hurts both user experience and, more importantly for marketing, conversion rate (there’s some great links to people saying just that on this somewhat cheeky site and also in this Conversion XL article). And, when we create a new feature, we want to make sure it’s for something we’re endorsing you to use almost all of the time.

Unbounce is super customizable though, so you can still do it with some custom work. And, another customer of ours, Jen Gordon, has come up with a guide to doing that..

If you do try the above, I’d definitely recommend testing against a variant with a static hero image though–you may see different results than the norm, but it’s likely that once you get enough data, the static image will convert better.
