To benefit from this form of online advertising you must have a web page. It would also be preferable, though not essential, ifrepparttar 101072 traffic to your web page is already established.

The reason is that banner exchange programs baserepparttar 101073 number of times they display your banner on others web pages based on how many times their banners are viewed on your web page.

And although a banner that belongs to someone else that is then displayed on your web site is like an exit for your visitor to leave,repparttar 101074 positives far outweigh any possible negatives.

Here are a few tips to improve your responses and increase your visibility via banners:

1. NEVER put a banner on your main entry page unless that banner is yours! When that banner is clicked it will take your visitor to another web page within your own site.

It takes a great deal of very hard work to build a steady flow of traffic to your web site. After doing all that hard work, does it not seem foolish to allow your visitor to leave immediately? Especially if it is to someone else's web page?
