Replaced slider with a banner on our homepage! Any feedback?

Hey Friends,

We read on a few UI / UX articles that it is better to have one banner image rather than a slider on the homepage. As it distracts the user rather than keep him on the page.

A banner helps focus attention, so we decided to add call to action buttons for our main services on the banner itself, and did away with the slider.

This is the website: raycreations.net

Any feedback on this? Do you feel a slider is better? Or was this the right move?

    Here is a clickable link to your site: 

    I like the idea of one banner image at a time that you can switch out every so often. 

    One thing that immediately jumped out at me, though, was your newsletter signup popup was covered up by your 'Web Design, Maintenance & Marketing" box. Though the box was transparent, I found this distracting. 

    I think the different bright colored backgrounds for each service are a little bit "loud" as well. I think you can stick to one color and one that isn't quite as bright. 

    Load time was a little bit lagging for me as well. 

    Overall, I think the website is easy to navigate and your portfolio is impressive, but maybe work on those thing I mentioned.
