There is no doubt that banners were and will be one of the most powerful marketing tools and if you want to deliver your message to the target audience – banners will be the right option for you.

So, let’s start and of course we would be really glad to hear your thoughts and essential suggestions.

  • Call to Action!
  • We all know the importance of this tip and you should never be afraid to use it. This is an essential part of any advertising campaign and when your advertising spot calls client to make a move, to click it, to take a look or even to buy it – it means that you are moving in a right direction.

     

  • Use Colors Wisely
  • As we’ve mentioned in one of our previous posts – Charmed by Colors – the eCommerce secrets – you can effectively use the color scheme of your banner to achieve positive result in your campaign.

  • Animation
  • You should always bear in the mind that your banner is competing with other elements of the website and animation helps to make it more eye-catching and therefore attract more eyes to it, which is exactly what you want from it.

  • Rich Media
  • This is a very controversial tip because it has both positive and negative sides. First of all, the rich media banners are more effective than simply animated banners because these banners are made up using Flash technology. Attractive and mesmerizing Flash effects are more user-friendly, so the audience likes them very much. But your big file size and particular terms of use (we mean you cannot use these banners for any advertising – there are only few areas where they’re applicable)

  • Small File Size
  • This rule is very important for the website owner because it influences your website usability a lot so be sure that you banner size won’t exceed 25 kb but less is better.

  • Simple Design
  • Simple design means that you have to find that perfect combination of right font, color scheme (contrast is very important – it helps to deliver the message to the client) and of course the layout. Keep it simple and original at the same time.

That’s all for now – we hope that you’ll find our tips useful for you and apply all these rules while planning your next advertising campaign or creating a new banner. Also be sure to read TemplateMonster main suggestions on how to make a compelling banner design. Take care now!
