What is an animated gif?
Animated GIFs are a series of images put together in a sequence to make one file. They have the advantage of being supported by all major web browsers so you can ensure that, unlike flash ads, your ad will be seen.
I really want my banners to stand out, what should I put in them?
Identify a focus for your banners i.e. do you want to increase visibility in the marketplace, drive traffic to your site or perhaps introduce the sales team?
Tailor the text to your focus and choose images that are interesting and compliment the text. Remember the secret to ads is keeping it simple but creative. There’s only a split second to grab the Consumer’s attention, you want to entice the Consumer and get your message across before they move on.
How many messages can I have?
Be simple but creative, it’s best not to get bogged down with too many messages. It’s also a good idea to include your website and a call to action e.g. ‘click here’. Three messages of around seven words is what we recommended.
How many photos should I use?
When it comes to photos, less is definitely more. Banners cope with only a limited number of images before they start to pixelate (become dull/blotchy), Ideally 1 or 2 photos.
