What's So NEW About These Ads?
You may have tried 'banner ads' in the past, elsewhere and been disappointed
at the results. Typical banner ads can be very tricky, highly targeted and
even overly expensive if not precisely tweeked. Verteran web surfers
nowadays have trained themselves to ignore typical banner ads for the most
part by not even looking at the conventional places where they are located.
Our new "TOP CENTER ADs (SM)", 300 x 250 size page sponsor ads are designed
to do away with all that!
We studied many things when designing this new option; The paths which visitors take when browsing our site, their mission and intent and what they are looking for on each page. Since it is never to LVLG's benefit to have top billing (unlike OTHER sites we don't sell anything but our advertisers) we figured out a way to put our advertisers FIRST!
Take a look now at our newly redesigned Home Page for a perfect example of our new advertising option. (It's the entire section inside the red box in the center of the first screen you see. What was the first thing you noticed? Visitors simply CAN NOT avoid looking at the center of the page in order to find the links to the information they came searching for. So what better place to position YOUR link information?
Our "Weekly Sponsor" label helps add credibility to your message. The large 300 x 250 space allows enough room for a couple paragraphs of text. You can be imaginative; customize your message into the content of the current page and introduce yourself to get the reader curious enough about your product to click thru for more information. We are available for providing recommendations. We'll soon be offering a special section for advertisers showing our own test ads and results of what worked and what didn't to help guide you.
Anxious to get started right away? What should you start thinking about for your ad? Here's a few tips. In general a single picture or two at most, with a catchy bold headline, followed by smaller descriptive text which "draws" the reader into your product. Think of it more as a short magazine story or infomercial than a billboard (billboard = banner mentality). Stay with the subject of the page and blend! Don't try to sell Hotel Rooms to people looking at Shows. It ain't gonna happen, at least not efficiently. Most importantly, even though the entire 300x250 area will be clickable, place at least one or two familiar style clickable links on it! Either a button or underscored text link. One trick is to design your ad area with HTML just like a regular webpage, and then 'capture' it with one of the many popular graphics packages. If you are unable to do this, we are happy to accept ads as an html file with the content PROPERLY ARRANGED AND SIZED to look like the final ad, and convert it for you to a 300x250 graphic for no charge.
