Best Ways To Make Your Promotions Seen

Shopify storefronts have an option of adding a promotional message to the header. And while you can get creative with your copy, fonts, and colors, this solution leaves a lot to be desired.

Firstly, you can only share one message; it will be exactly the same on every page of your website. Secondly, it lacks a CTA, a call to action. It only passively informs website visitors of your ongoing promotion; they still have to do the job of finding the type of products this promotion applies to.

Let’s see how we can make all of your promotions seen and acted on.


Marquee Shopify section

A marquee is a content block with a running promotional message. You can add custom fonts, colors, margins, and paddings to this section. If you like, you can add an icon to separate the tagline.

Another great feature of the marquee section is that you can add a button that prompts a visitor to take action. For example, if you’re advertising a sale on a particular collection, this button can take your audience there, making shopping the sale more intuitive.

You can also control the speed and direction of the text getting it to work just like you desire.
