Online advertising covers a variety of different online media channels ranging from banner advertising on social media platforms to text ads next to search engine results pages to display ads in ezines and email newsletters.
For the purposes of the Internet, display ads are graphical advertisements, which appear next to content on web pages, IM applications, email, etc. Display ads come in a wide variety of standardized ad sizes from rectangles and pop-ups to banners, badges and buttons to skyscraper ads, and can include text, logos, pictures, and more recently, rich media.
Rich media, or interactive multimedia, is enhanced media which uses a combination of text, audio, still images, animation, video, and interactive content to attract active participation from the display ad recipient. You've likely already seen display ads which involve the ad recipient by using a pencil, a ball or a toy gun, and having them draw towards, score against or shoot a predefined target.
A banner ad is a form of display advertising on the Internet, which entails embedding a graphical advertisement into a web page or email and attracting traffic to a website by linking the banner ad to the advertiser's website. Banner ads are usually delivered by a central ad server to keep track of campaign metrics and other data.
A text ad is a form of web-based display advertising, which involves a combination of written text and hyperlinks directed towards the advertiser's website. There are three important elements to text ads:
Depending on the ad server chosen, text ads may provide supplementary benefits to search engine marketing, and can be considered advantageous when compared to image or rich media advertising alternatives.
One of the most effective ways of getting your ad in front of millions if not billions of eyes is through ad networks. Selecting the right ad networks can make all the difference when gauging the success of any advertising campaign.
Banner ad networks simply act as brokers between advertisers and publishers. Like banner exchange programs, they take care of placing an advertiser's banner ads and tracking all activity related to that ad.
