Oh say can you see... Get a professionally designed, custom banner ad in 48 hours with PointBanner

Posted by maggie.hunsucker July 2, 2009

It seems every day some newfangled ad unit is being rolled out.  We’re not knocking experimentation, but leasing tweets or splashing branded wallpaper across a site is not a for everyone.
If all you really need is a banner ad in front of your target audience, why reinvent the wheel?  Try a service called PointBanner.   They’ve got one of the cleanest sales pitches we’ve heard in awhile – custom banner advertisements, 3 revisions, 48 hours, $49.
Unlike 99designs  and Crowdspring, this service is strictly banner ads and all design work is performed by PointBanner’s staff.  No competitions with mystery contestants; no you-get-what-you-pay-for business model.   Because you get 3 design revisions, you can actually work with your designer to get the  just right.   Point Banner also promises 100% custom work, so you’re not paying a pricey design firm or freelancer from Craigslist for templates.
Here’s how it works:  Submit a design request through PointBanner’s online system. You can choose a bundled package or pay the $49 fee for a single size.   Choose from rectangle, square, leaderboard, skyscraper, or full banner sizes (minimal upcharge of $5 for animation).  Then, give PointBaner your ad text, URL, and any special instructions.  Finish off by uploading your logo.  Within 24 hours, you will receive access to your PointBanner account (where all your ads are stored) and your first design iteration.
For local businesses or cash-strapped firms, this is pretty good deal.  You’re not paying for design services you don’t need or treking into unchartered advertising territory.
SECRET SAUCE
Banner ads usually run on a CPM ad model, which means you pay a set price for every 1000 impressions (i.e. you ad appears 1000 times).   With a $50 banner ad from PointBanner and a $50 ad run, you have a home cooked, digital marketing strategy for about $100.
TECH MORSEL
Now that you have a banner ad, you can distribute it through different ad networks.   You can use Google Adwords or targeted banner ad network like Adbrite, an idea we discussed in First Star I see Tonight.
