Clever Web Banners/Ads that Deliver


Online ads and web banners have a great visual potential that usually goes unnoticed. Advertisers often neglect the creative energy when producing web banners, and accordingly, internet users tend to resent those unattractive rectangles that appear on their screens. The good news is that it doesn’t have to be that way. Web banners can be exciting, funny and creative, and, unlike other types of advertising, they can be interactive and playful. We collected examples of really impressive advertising work, all done for the web! These ads are fun to look at at, they won’t antagonize viewers with noises, blings and animations, and you can bet they generate more revenues as well. A win-win situation 🙂

Are You Making These Online Advertising Mistakes?

But just because you can get an ad campaign running with little to no effort doesn’t necessarily mean you’re doing it right. In fact, I would say that many advertisers are missing the boat when it comes to getting the most out their advertising dollars – and with just a few small changes here and there they could be getting a much bigger impact out of their advertising efforts.
The following list of faux pas are what I’ve found to be the most common things marketers are missing when running online advertising campaigns. None of the following best practices are super complicated or hard to figure out, but they do take some time and attention to get right. As you’ll see from the list below, online advertising is all about trying different types of ads, testing a lot and tracking everything. Once you get all of these things working together you’ll start to see your advertising efforts pay off more than ever.
1. You’re only trying one source of online advertising
There are more ways to advertise online than you can probably handle, so what’s a marketer to do? My advice would be to not throw your money around and try out everything, but to find and try the ones you feel are most worth your time and focus on those first.

I would highly suggest starting out with AdWords, Facebook and doing some direct buys on specific websites. It won’t take you long to get started with the first two since they’re both completely self-service. With AdWords you’ll target your ads based on search or content keywords while Facebook will be targeted based on audience interests and demographic information.

With the direct buys you can contact the websites via email or use BuyAds.com to find and buy advertising directly from the websites that best fit your audience.

Once you give each of those a good run you can also add some more non-traditional advertising options into the mix like LinkedIn, Reddit and StumbleUpon Paid Discovery. If you feel like your target audience is likely to be found through one of those sites, then it’s worth testing out and it won’t take a whole lot of additional effort on your end.

LinkedIn ads are similar to Facebook’s in the fact that they’re targeted to the information that’s available on someone’s profile like age, work experience or company. Reddit ads are unique to their community and could be a great fit if you’re looking to get exposure for a product or service that’s funny, entertaining or geeky. StumbleUpon Paid Discovery is a way to get whatever you’re pitching into the StumbleUpon community with hopes that it could go viral. Just be sure to choose the right category when submitting your paid submission because if you don’t your campaign will go nowhere fast.

How to start with big or small budgets

If you only have a little bit to spend, say $100/month, then buying ads from AdWords or Facebook will give you the best bang for your budget. You’ll need to be very stingy with how much you’re bidding, but you can get a decent amount of exposure if you stretch out the $100 as much as you can. The more unique and less competitive the people or keywords you’re trying to target, the longer your $100 will last.

Let’s face it – even though online advertising can sometimes be a dirty word, most web businesses can really benefit from it. Online advertising is a powerful way to get your message in front of a specific audience in a relevant and actionable way and there’s not a whole lot of knowledge or know-how you need to get started. Just a little bit of cash and some keywords and you’re off to the races.

What Offline Advertisers Can Teach Online Marketers

By Cameron Chapman

As online marketers, we often ignore the methods used by offline advertisers, especially print and outdoor advertisers. After all, print is the past and digital marketing is the future. What could we possibly learn from staring at a bunch of magazine ads or billboards?

The answer is: quite a bit. Offline advertising has a much longer history than online advertising and marketing, and has had a lot more research done over the years. There are proven techniques that have worked offline for decades that online marketers have barely tried. So why not try a few techniques that have proven effective for print, television, and other offline advertising campaigns, and see how you can translate them to the web?

Don’t Fix It If It’s Not Broken

There are a number of examples in the world of print advertising where companies have attempted to change or “improve” their products and promotional methods and have nearly ruined their successful businesses. Take the recent Gap logo fiasco. Gap attempted to update their logo to reflect a more modern style, and suffered such an enormous backlash from their customers that they changed it back to the old one within days.

Biggest brands: Top 100 online advertisers 2010

As many advertisers were forced to cut back last year, so media owners probably comforted themselves with the thought that no part of the industry was immune to the effects of the UK’s deepest recession since the 30s.

However, the latest research shows that digital media have, to some degree, managed to ride the storm. According to Nielsen, overall internet adspend rose from £461.4bn in 2008 to £506.3bn in 2009 – a 9.7% year-on-year increase. While half of the UK’s top 100 online advertisers cut their media spend in 2009, more than 80% of them increased their internet investment; many of them attracted by the prospect of solid ROI at a time when they were striving to cut marketing costs.

See Table (Ranking)

(…)

More for less

Regardless of the effects of the recession, there appears to be a growing belief among brands that increasing adspend does not guarantee marketing success. By its own reckoning, Moneysupermarket.com, the 10th-placed online advertiser in the list, spent 22% less on its marketing last year, including search, but was still able to attract 14% more customers.

‘For us, it has become less about how much you spend and more about what you say and how you say it,’ says Ian Williams, the brand’s director of communications.

In a handful of sectors there was a sharp reduction in internet adspend. While they continue to make extensive use of the channel, media/entertainment brands collectively cut their budgets for online marketing by almost 16%.

Other sectors where big falls occurred include retail, which spent 42.3% less, and the property and pharmaceutical sectors, which made reductions of 45.5% and 55.2% respectively. However, while property and pharmaceuticals cut their marketing across the board last year, retailers raised their budgets overall; this suggests that online price deflation has enabled advertisers in this sector to make significant savings.

Twitter users say it’s not worth paying for

Twitter has been looking at different ways of generating revenue from its service through advertising. It recently launched @earlybird, a service pointing users to specific offers.

However, the study also found that half of internet users never click on web advertising, and 70 percent said that it was ‘annoying.’ Yet more than half said they’d rather see web advertising than pay for content.

“Internet users can obtain content in three ways: they can steal it, or pay for it, or accept advertising on the web pages they view,” said Cole.


BY Emma Woollacott

While half of all Americans use Twitter, not one would be prepared to pay for it, according to a survey.

The annual study of the impact of the internet on Americans by the Center for the Digital Future found that 49 percent of users said they’d used free micro-blogs such as Twitter.

But when asked if they would be willing to pay for Twitter, every one said no.”Such an extreme finding that produced a zero response underscores the difficulty of getting internet users to pay for anything that they already receive for free,” said Jeffrey Cole, director of the Center for the Digital Future at USC Annenberg’s School for Communication & Journalism.

“Twitter has no plans to charge its users, but this result illustrates, beyond any doubt, the tremendous problem of transforming free users into paying users. Online providers face major challenges to get customers to pay for services they now receive for free.” Leer más “Twitter users say it’s not worth paying for”

Advertisers offer new way to opt out of targeted online ads

Say you’re shopping for a new computer. You start your research with a Google search. Then, you read some reviews and check prices on shopping sites. Suddenly, you see ads for computers while reading the news or checking movie show times.

Or, how about this one: You’re on a national news site. You only see ads for events and businesses in your area.

Situations like these are not mere coincidences. Advertisers are increasingly using targeted advertising to serve online ads.

How Effective Is Mobile Advertising?

Online Ads Are More Effective Than Traditional TV Ads

In a recent report by Dave Kaplan, Nielsen’s senior VP of product leadership, and Beth Uyenco, director of global research at Microsoft, they found that online ads are actually more effective than traditional television ads. It’s a common understanding amongst most that digital ads are often ignored but not all of them are created equally.

For online video ads, we need to take note that most of them can’t be skipped and that’s what makes them on par with traditional television ads. In an evaluation of 238 brands and 412 products in 915 ad executions in streaming full-episode TV programs, they found that online ads have about 65% general recalls compared to 46% for television ads.

On top of that, brand recalls for online ads are also higher; 50% compared to TV’s 28%. Message online recall is 39% compared to TV’s 21%. Likability is at 26% online, compared to TV’s 14%.

online ad vs tv ad

With the rate of popularity amongst online video ads rising, advertisers are sure to capitalize this market as they strive to increase their digital revenues. However, the fact remains that viewers are able to skip the same commercials on television that they’re being forced to watch online. This means that they would rather be avoiding the ads they’re currently interacting with.

Surely brands will try to capitalize on this fact and try to squeeze as much money as possible through forced commercials in digital videos. But how far they can sustain this remains to be seen.

Infographic: Timeline Of Location Technology

Shane Snow has done it again; this time he has come out with an infographic for the history of location technology. The rapid rise of location-based networks such as Foursquare, Gowalla and possibly even Facebook, would appear that location technology is of something new. However, we humans have been using ingenious ways to locate each other for thousands of years already.

With the infographic, we can see details of the history of location-based technology, from the most primitive to the most advanced.

HOW TO: Add Facebook ‘Like’ Widget Plugin On Your Site

Image representing Facebook Connect as depicte...
Image via CrunchBase

Recently, Facebook announced that they’ll replace the ‘Facebook Connect’ feature with their preferred ‘like’ functionality feature. This update is the latest amongst a slew of them in the past couple of months. Over the next few months, Facebook will roll out a Digg-like function to dozens of news and entertainment websites. You’ll be able to flag – or “like” – content you enjoy; that content will then appear in your status feed.

In addition, your “like” – along with your profile photo – will appear on the page you flagged, for all your friends to see. As Facebook is quick to point out, users can choose to opt out of the functionality.

What does that actually mean for content developers? Well for one, it is a new way of spreading their content over the web through the ‘like’ button on their site. Coincidentally, AJ Batac from AllanJosephBatac has provided us with a link to download the plugin.

facebook like

The plugin looks exactly like the screenshot above on my site. In order to get this installed on your WordPress blog, download the plugin here.

Installation Instructions

1. Download the Facebook “Like” Button Widget Plugin

2. Go to your site’s control panel (usually /wp-admin behind your site’s URL)

3. Under ‘Plugins’, click ‘Add New’

4. Click the ‘Upload’ tab and proceed to upload the Zip file you’ve downloaded under Step 1

5. Activate the plugin and you’re done

It was also noted that AJ Batac has given the widget a style ID so you can target it in CSS. The id is “facebook_like”. In the meantime, do share with us your feedback on the plugin.
