As you can see,repparttar text link forrepparttar 102595 same product has a far higher hit to impression ratio, than doesrepparttar 102596 banner ad. Program 1 banner ad has a 5% hit to impression ratio, whilerepparttar 102597 text link forrepparttar 102598 same product has a 50% hit to impression ratio. This meansrepparttar 102599 text link is generating ten times more traffic thanrepparttar 102600 banner ad forrepparttar 102601 same product.

Using Product 1 as an example, this has a hit to sale conversion ratio of 40% (Ten hits would generate four sales.) Using a profit of only $1 from each sale, this converts torepparttar 102602 following:

Product 1:

Banner Ad: Products Sold: 2 Profit: $ 2. Text Link: Products Sold: 22 Profit: $22.

This example is used for illustrative purposes only. Your actual statistics may vary. However, one thing will remain constant, almost without exception, text links will far surpass banner ads for generating hits.

I strongly encourage anyone who isn't already using text links, to give it a try. Post a text link onrepparttar 102607 same page as a banner (forrepparttar 102608 same product), and trackrepparttar 102609 click through percentages for each over a couple of weeks. I think you'll be amazed byrepparttar 102610 difference, and pleased byrepparttar 102611 increase in your profits.

As a side note, if you insist on using banners, try using interactive banners - those which provide a function such as a search box, etc. These generally get twicerepparttar 102612 hits as do regular banner ads, but still cannot comparerepparttar 102613 what a text link will generate.
