    Personalize your banner

    You can customize every element of your design to create a personalized HTML banner. Add fonts, images, videos, shapes, a CTA button, or change colors to transform it into a visual that matches your brand identity. Go even further by uploading elements from your computer and making the design consistent with the other visual materials you already have.

What are the most common animated banner sizes?

Google recommends using a few different sizes when running animated banner ads on mobile devices and desktop. For desktop users, use the following sizes: 300 x 250, 336 x 280, 728 x 90, 970 x 90, 468 x 60, 300 x 600, 160 x 600, 250 x 250, and 200 x 200. For mobile devices, you can use 300 x 200, 300 x 50, 300 x 100, 250 x 250, and 200 x 200. To achieve the best results, try to stick with these dimensions. 

How can I make my animated banner ad more attractive?

Here’s how you can make your animated banner ad more attractive: choose the best size; make sure the format is compatible with the ad network; structure the elements of your ad (logo, text, visuals, CTA); use colors that match your brand’s visual identity; choose the right typeface; use eye-catching visual elements; add smooth transitions and animation effects; have a strong CTA.

What are the best animated banner placements?

There are three different placements to consider. Firstly, there’s the placement above the fold, which is effective because it’s the first thing visitors see when they enter a webpage, so they don’t need to scroll down. Secondly, you can place the animated banner in the sidebar located in the right-hand corner of the screen, next to the scroll bar. The last placement is within content, which can be effective since the visitor is already engaged with the content and the ad can get their attention.
