Recomendations for Ad Design & Content

Based on our years of experience with Internet ad formats, here are a few recommendations to consider:

  • Include the words "Click Here" on all graphic ads (banners, hot spots, tiles etc.) and graphic links in showcase ads.
  • Optimize graphic ads to minimize file size to 25K or so to ensure the ad loads into the readers browser quickly. This is especially important in showcase ads.
  • In showcase ads, include several products with links to specific pages on your website to allow readers to use the ad as an index to your products and services. Be sure to include some of your links "Above the fold" in showcase ads.
  • Be straight forward with your message ... subtleties usually don't work. 
  • Change your ads from time to time to attract familiar readers back to your website. They are probably your best fans.
  • Login to read and analyze the statistics quite often and modify your ad campaign to improve performance or to reach a different customer. These are real numbers ... and HomeToys provides the flexibility ... so use them to your advantage.
  • If you have an idea you'd like to try at HomeToys ... just ask. Many of the services we offer came about as a result of feedback from you ... our clients.
