The header and footer are one of the most important parts of a website. Your website’s header is the first thing a visitor notices while landing on your site. A header refers to the navigation bar that displays the business logo, links to all important pages, any CTA, and a way of contacting you via a phone number or email address.
A well-structured header is crucial for your website and can be used to advertise any messages or promotions. It creates easiness for potential customers to explore the website. A good header functions like a good salesman; for example, using the call to action of 20% off for only today will urge the users to buy your product.
A header can be of particular types, such as a sticky or fixed. A sticky header is also known as a fixed header. It is a smart navigation tool that fixes the main menu at the top of the page as visitor scrolls down.
Importance of Sticky Header
A sticky header is a fixed header that allows users to quickly access the search and all important pages without going to the top of the page. According to a study, 22% of internet users said that websites with sticky headers are easier to navigate. Another study found that using a sticky header on an e-commerce website increased conversions by 3%.
