Display Advertising also known as banner advertising plays a critical role in helping your brand awareness and is an important part of your overall PPC Strategy Not only is display advertising essential for brand awareness but also plays a big part in direct response campaigns. With over two million websites in the Google Display Network, there is a huge audience to target and choose from. Display Advertising is a much cheaper method of advertising to large numbers due to a reduced CPC compared to Paid Search. With Display, you can submit text, rich text images, or video adverts.

The first thing you need to know is what format you would like. You need to decide if it’s a Static ad (a banner ad popup that is just a nonmoving image) like the first example, or do you need something more eye-catching like an ad that has moving elements or Animation?

Pros and cons

With static ads you are limited with copy as we have to put everything onto one image. But these are easier and quicker to get up. They tend to work pretty good, but are limited.
With an animated ad, we can have more copy and they usually get better CTR because they are a bit more engaging.
