Is it me, or has these huge a** banners ad's been sprouting up like mushrooms lately? I know all about promoting sponsors on a discussion forums. The last website of mine I sold it made $90k a year at the time of sell. The largest size banner I displayed at any location was 100hX500w. I spoke with the members on regular basis and asked them what things bothered them the most. They responded with the size of the banners as being 1st on their list. That is how I ended up with the size I mentioned above. Banner's have to be made to display a certain way, otherwise those that visit the site never pay any attention to them, and everyone become numb of them being there. I don't pay any attention to the banner's on this site except when I accidentally click on one which happens about 6 times a day. These banners could have my name on them and I wouldn't even know it. So I posted this thread because I was attempting to read through another thread when I noticed there was 5 of these banners being displayed with in a 10 post per page thread. I don't remember seeing that many in one area like that anywhere say a week ago. Now it is rather important for a sponsor to co-exist with a community he is sponsoring. Otherwise it's a waste of money due to the members having to look at a ugly banner. We want deals, and we want special deals that nobody else can get but the members here, and if we aren't getting any type of deals then we don't care what kind of product you're selling. Anyway that describes how most of forums are anymore.
