General Tips

  • Keep it simple. There's no need to include contact information, addresses etc. All this should be shown to users AFTER they click on the banner
  • Have a clear and strong message. You only have a very short moment of a users attention to introduce yourself. Don't waste it. Try to summarize your product or service in less then 6 words.
  • Don't be abstract in your messages. "Spring Season" might be the name of your campaign, but why would a customer be interested in this?
  • Use images wisely. Use images for users to identify what you are offering. If someone needs a laundry service and your ad shows a washing machine, you are more likely to get that click
