Anyone having success with banner ads?

5 replies
Is anyone having success with banner ads? Been trying some on adwords and on niche forums but neither seems to be getting much action. CTR is running .1-.2% with only about a .05% conversion rate. ROI is not good.

    Hey at least you're getting some conversion, maybe you just need to scale it up. Find more forums to place your banners on.

    Banners are great for branding and getting seen, but not great for click thru or sales. It has been this way for a decade or so now. Not that many people click on banners. Most people ignore them, but if you saturate an area/market enough, then you will be noticed and they will assume your business must be doing well because they see you so much. Awesome for branding, lousy for sales

    CTR depends on niche - it's around 20% for dating, but maybe 1% for software.

    Buy inline text links to make more money from CPA offers - people reading text are much more likely to be committed buyers. Plus the links won't (hopefully) get stripped out by ad blockers.
