Why would a sliding panel be useful to me?

Sliding panels, sliding bars and sliding sidebars are a fantastic way to display content to your visitors in a memorable way. To give some examples, you can use Nest to display a mailing list sign-up form, alert your audience to an upcoming event, introduce a product, invite feedback from your readers, show off your vacation photos, set up a menu and so on. You really are only limited by your needs and imagination.

With the possibility to show a Nest panel on a specific post or page only and activate it from any element, automatically via time delay or when scrolled to an anchor, Nest can even be used to perform a call-to-action function; absolutely fantastic for marketing purposes.

Why buy from Bootstrapps?

The best answer I can give is what other people have said:
