Subsidize Your Website with Advertising

Banner Ads

If you’ve spent any time surfing the Internet, you’ve seen banner ads. These rectangular advertisements vary considerably in appearance and subject matter, but they all share a basic function: if someone clicks on them, they will be taken to the advertiser’s website. You are essentially being paid to provide a link to another website.

Because of its graphic element, a banner ad is similar to a traditional printed ad, but it has the added ability to bring a potential customer directly to the advertiser’s website. This would be like touching a printed ad and being immediately teleported to the advertiser’s store.

A banner ad also differs from a print ad in its dynamic capability. It stays in one place on a page, like a magazine ad, but it can present multiple images, include animation and change appearance in a number of other ways.

Advertising Widgets

Large online retailers want to drive traffic to their sites so they offer these widgets for you to use and customize. Amazon, for example, has a wide range of widgets.
