Creating a Great Banner: Tips to Live By

Making banner ads for your business’ marketing or whatever purpose you have for it has now become very easy and straightforward, thanks in part to the availability of online tools that you can use for free, at least most of them. This type of material is usually intended for social media profiles, but on a more serious note, they’re really best used for business websites. And what’s really great about them is that you don’t need to pay someone else to do it for you since with the right tool, you’re more than capable of doing it on your own.

For this particular article, let us talk about how you must ideally create the most amazing banner ads, even if it is your first time.

1 – The first tip for all beginners is to choose a light and minimalist message. In other words, you shouldn’t try telling an entire story in just one banner image. Instead, the banner has to serve the function of giving visitors a preview of what should be inside the website.

2 – You have to be particularly sure that your banner image represents the same message to that of your business. You should never make the dumb mistake of creating a banner image that actually sends the wrong or contradicting message to what the business or company really represents. Consistency with the brand must be looked upon as a priority when creating banner ads. Yes, your job is to create a banner ad to grab someone else’s attention, but it does not mean you are to create confusion rather than impress. Do not create one as if to deceive or mislead visitors of the website because if you do, they likely won’t be coming back for a second visit.

3 – We always believe that banner ads must be straightforward all the time. The reason for this is obvious: you want to create an impression that you’re a no-fuss and serious business or company wanting to impress and tell people that you have something to offer them.

4 – Lastly, we are under the strong belief that if banner ads are kept simple, they become a lot more effective. It eventually boils down to what we talked about earlier: having to come up with a minimalist design. This is even truer in instances when your targeted audience or market is made up of highly sensitive groups of people based on race, gender, culture, or even religion. While you always get to experiment a little bit to create a banner ad, you still have to focus on retaining the basic stuff like using black and white as the primary colors and short but clear text.
