    Text/Html – The text will be Attractive Deals with 50% Off on all products. So click on Add a New Layer icon, then click on Text/Html to add the layer to the slide.

    Now to add animation effects to this layer, click on Animation blue button. Put ‘3000’ for the animation speed against Fade-in option. This means this layer will show after 3000 milliseconds (i.e 3 seconds) on the slide.

    Similarly set Fade-out animation speed to 10000(i.e 10 seconds). This means this layer will hide after 10 seconds. There are also other animation templates given which you can give a try.

    Button – Now add a button from the Add a New Layer. Here you can put the button text, button color, button text color, button hover color, and other properties.

    Put 11000 for Fade-in and 15000 for Fade-out animation speeds. This will make our button to become visible from 11 to 15 seconds.

    Now I want to put an option for button click event so that when someone clicks this button he is redirected to the shop page. To do it click the button to select it, now click the Actions link then click the + blue button. Add the click event for the button with simple link option. Finally put link URL where user will be redirected when clicking it. In the end save all your changes.
