Bring a New Life to Your Boring Website with Interactive Flip Boxes

Web design plays a huge role in how your audience perceives your brand. The first impression can either get them to remain on your site and learn about your business or leave and turn to your competitor. The modern web design requires much more than plain text and images. It interacts with your audience and helps you keep your leads.

If your site is bright and interactive, there’s a higher chance for users to convert. One of the awesome methods to bring life to your boring site is to use flip boxes. Wondering what are they? Let’s find out what flip boxes are and how the SP Page Builder Flip Box addon can turn passive users into active participants.

What is a Flip Box

So, what exactly are flip boxes? It is an interactive element that flips when you hover your mouse over it. They are simply awesome! With flip boxes, you can easily add interaction to your content and catch the audience’s attention. If you are an SP Page Builder user, you have probably come across the Flip Box addon already. What’s really cool about this addon is it is fully customizable and allows you to highlight important features, announcements, or bring an animation effect to your content.

How a Flip Box Can Add a Layer of Attraction to Your Site

Most internet users have an on-page attention span of just a few seconds. They surf your site freely, not deeply engaged until something gets their attention. Unless your site grabs their attention right away, you are going to miss out on their engagement. This is what flip boxes do for you!

With the Flip Box addon, you can design your web page with animation effects both for back and front content separately. The flip effects remove the monotonous representation of content. They not only add dynamic style to your site but also saves some space to represent the products, services, or any other content.

SP Page Builder’s Flip Box addon offers several features to customize your content. From changing the flip effects, flip direction, 3D effect to changing the flip box contents for both back and front sides of the box, you can do some truly exceptional stuff to grab and retain customers’ attention.

Without further ado, let’s see a step by step guide on how to style your content with this addon!

Step 1: First, you need to choose your page layout. With SP Page Builder you can easily add rows & columns and insert addons in the blink of an eye. Once you have crafted the perfect layout, insert the Flip Box addon.
