I was wondering how to make a homepage look better, by inserting moving images or a video followed by another, or including more graphics, how to do this? Just spice it up a little!
Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!

Elementor is a great plugin that could help you create a cool-looking home page. I was using it but had to remove it because there was some issue with my theme, and I didn't want to change the theme. Elementor is a free plugin that comes with a premium version too. Alternatively, you could try Thrive Architect. I believe there's no free version here, only paid, but it's an excellent choice too.

this is the ideal time to try out the power of the bock editor and add on ultimate blocks plugin
if you want to find out what you can do with the block editor then try starting a new test site and - at the moment you will need ot search google for the astra theme - and addon the starter pack plugin - load up the block editor sites and see what it is capapble of with out plugins.....
have fun

That's a good idea, to use a test site to find out what works well!
i am usually reluctant to do - in case it messes up my website!
Thanks and will look at the plugins.

I`not familiar with Elementor. But the advice is consistent below. I have used MetaSlider on my site. You can take a look at whyspirulina.com/spirulina-uses-benefits/ but on a lap top it is not that good - works well on a mobile phone. I suspect because I have only loaded the free version.

For videos I have installed a couple. I recommend you carefully follow Kyle`s WA training advice rather than the other training you can find on WA. Important, there is a new GPDR regulation (privacy law) in the EU so its important to click the privacy box too before you install it.

To prevent videos starting on adverts, I usually set them to a few seconds after the 0.00 Also, be careful which videos, if you are using others from e.g. utube, you don`t want people leaving your site. Hope this helps.

Best Regards,

Trevor

Very interesting Trevor!
I did like your website. back when getting your backlinks(which I have added in ) and your homepage looks amazing.
I will certainly check metaslider and thanks for your detailed answer about video's and GPDR, will keep a note. Thanks!

Hey Farah. thank you for the backlinks. Can you kindly share the url (s) of the page (s) you have them on, so I can look to reciprocate from mine to yours?

The GPDR issue is EU related & seems to impact the use of Google Ads if you don`t set the videos properly. I`m trying to sort mine out now!

Have a great day.

Trevor
