4 tips for creating effective display ads

  • Choose a suitable size for your banner

    The effectiveness of your banner ad depends on how it’s displayed on websites — all elements must be fully visible. So, before designing, choose the suitable format for your ad in VistaCreate. All our banner templates are pre-configured, so you don’t have to enter dimensions manually. But if you want to create your own custom-size banner, you can easily enter your dimensions in our banner ad maker.

  • Add your branding elements

    Remember that your ad will be seen by millions of internet users worldwide. You can use this opportunity to market your products and boost brand recognition by creating a memorable banner ad with your branded colors, logos, and fonts. To do so, add all your branding elements to your brand kit in VistaCreate and apply them to your design in just one click.

  • Maintain text readability

    When designing a banner ad, select a font that reflects your brand personality and is legible. Whether you go for a classic serif font or a modern sans-serif, choose bold formatting to make your text visible on small banners. Another great way to make your message pop is to use a contrasting font color or add a graphic mask underneath the text.

  • Highlight your call-to-action button

    A CTA button is one of the essential elements of your banner ad because it motivates users to click on it. Choose the way you want to highlight your button — you can frame it, use a contrasting color, pick an eye-catching font, or add some pointing arrows around it. Decorate your button in our display ads creator or borrow some design ideas from our ready-made banner templates.
