Banners, Graphics, and More...
If you are experiencing poor results with your banner ads, here are few ways to design a better banner ad:

1. Make sure your message is clear and concise. Think about what the purpose of your banner is - generate traffic to a web page, gain optins, purchase a product or become an affiliate. Compose your message around this purpose.

2. Keep it simple with a clean layout - no clutter. One huge mistake a see too often is that there is too much information on the banner. Just remember less information is better.

3. Make sure you are not using tricks or gimmicks in your banner. When someone clicks on your banner to find out it was totally different than the message you banner was displaying, you have just lost their trust and will more than likely never have a change to earn it back.

4. When designing a banner ad, to get the best results, a clean design is best. A simple layout for a 468X60 or 728X90 banner would include:

* Image on the left. It is important to use a good quality image and have it be relevant to what you are advertising.

* Your value propositon message - short, clear message.

* The call to action - this can be a button like "Click Here", "More Info", etc.

The details of the banner ad design should be relevant to the page your visitors go to when clicking on your banner. In otherwords, your visitor feels comfortable when arriving your page. Designing a banner in this way results in a higher click through rate leading to the possibility of more sales.

IBObanners is a great resource available to you where you get access to ready made banners for different business opportunities or templates that you can customize for your business with text, graphics, etc! IBObanners will host all of your banners, plus give you access to a banner maker where you can create your own banners!
