What Is A Hero Banner?

A hero banner is a big size image (sometimes a full-screen image) on the top of the website.

The purpose of this hero image is to basically present the overall goal of the website or business.

This hero image banner may or may not have overlay text on top of it.

It also sometimes has a call to action button so that users coming on to the website click on the call to action button on the hero banner displaying the clear motive of the website or the business.

This call to action button could be a free trial, sign-up button, etc.
