The “image with text overlay” section offers the opportunity to utilise the powerful strategy of image and text working together.
A strong image alone can be enough to strike a chord with customers, but by adding another layer to this in the form of text, you have an even higher capacity to influence behaviour..

Choose "Add section"
Select "Image with text overlay"

This provides a sense dynamism to your page, but is not compulsory so we have provided the option to toggle it on and off.
