Digital Advertising has always been a tough job when it comes to the look of your website and the reputation of your site with respect to the end user. In such cases too much advertising is what tends to happen. Instead of increasing the brand goodwill it can hamper it. Special care needs to be taken to optimize the use of available real estate.

However with Pretty, well placed, relevant ads that appeal to the sensibilities of your end users can have a completely opposite and positive impact for your site, your brand and finally your ad sales. Lets explore the best way to achieve this sweet spot.

b2ap3_thumbnail_1423511314_672371-check-32.png The Right Ad types in the right places

SocialAds lets you create different types of Ads. You need to be choosy about deciding which Ad type looks good where. Image Ads will look good in most positions while sometimes you might need to setup a simple pure text ad position.

Pictures are worth a thousand words but sometimes a small snippet of text is all you need !

In positions that are very compact and slim, a Gmail like one line text ad would look great. Ideally don't put more than one Video Ad in one page. Make a dedicated Zone for it & only place one Ad in it.

b2ap3_thumbnail_oie_914507KSiri1eG.png  Don’t Abuse Flexibility but don't under utilize  it either !

The SocialAds Zone editor is extremely flexible & will let you create a multitude of dimensions for SocialAds. I would use this carefully however. Try & stick to dimensions that work best & keep them limited to your needs.
