    I think banner advertisement can be effective, but like you said, people get sick of seeing the same banner over and over. Thus, it is important to change the look of your banners around. Definitely not a waste of money, if you are advertising in the right places.

    Nice article. Banners are a good means of advertisement. But I don’t like banners too much.. for my site and on other’s site too. i like to do away with those glittery sorts of banners which will drive your visitors away instead of bringing them over again.

    They drive away the traffic but also a very stable and good source of income. More over If your advertisement are related to your niche, it will be helpful for your readers.

    I think there are better methods to get people to notice you. Bribe some bloggers to write about you by sending them a product or let them try your service for free. This method have been used for several years and has become very common thanks to internet.

    With that said I agree that banners can be great for brand awareness. Once people know about you, you need to get out there and remind them about you. Which you can do with banners.

    That;s true Stefan , giving any one try the service for free is like a buying a free promotion for your service. I seldom get such email from many web hosting and other product. few days back namecheap offered me a free domain and without even asking, I wrote a review for them.
    Though a prominent banner and logo are always useful for long run. Imagine Google logo or Windows logo and banners.

    If you are interested in gettings things for free one idea would be to contact a company through mail and ask them to send you a specific product. Or maybe just ask to lend it to write a review. After some time others will probably send you free stuff to try.

    I personally feel that 125×125 banners and 336×280 large rectangle ads on blogs can add a lot of value to your brand building. The blindness is mainly with the 468×60 ad that nobody even cares to look in these days.

    I like ZK’s large rectangle ad on Shanker’s blog… I am sure he must be getting more hits on it than the smaller banner.

    As for me, I do not really do a lot of brand building… In fact, I never spend money to advertise my blog. It’s mainly a personal choice along my MMO goals – basically not to spend a dime on promotion though returns also could be lower due to that.

    I have a different opinion on this. It’s true 468*60 banners are the most ignored and had the worse CTR but still they are better for brand awareness. if you have a very bright and catchy banner flashing at the top of blog (468*60) with time , people will start memorizing that banner and brand. Despite of poor CTR that advertisement banner will serve its purpose “Brand Awareness”.

    Definitely banner adverts do add brand value to your portal,but again ad blindness is something which deteriorates your brand in a long term.
    @ajith 125×125 banners and 336×280 large rectangle ads ..these are perfect one.
    You must stick to your expertise field only(niche advertising)and change your ads after couple of months.
