Note: The actually banner examples start at the 2 minute mark, before that I'm giving tips on how to increase banner response. Anyone whose banner is used in the example who wants the reworked banner, IM me for it.
The banner examples I used were the first ones I could find, I don't mean offense to anyone's existing banner, obviously. :-) There's nothing "bad" about any of them, I'm just showing, based on my experience, what could make them better.
This is normally stuff I share with my subscribers, but... if posters' signature banners are more profitable that's good for them, and they'll renew monthly and that's good for Allen, and then the Karma Fairy may Knight me and then I can call myself "Sir Tim", which would impress my mom...
Anyway, hope you find it helpful.
