Banner Advertising Art Construction

A banner ad is about 450 by 60 pixels and has combinations of art, photo and copy. Creativity allows much variance in this design, so the following is shown only as an example. An example is shown here:
Ad copy is provided by the advertiser and placed in the Website by Batteries Digest (BD).
Only one banner ad is placed on any page.
Banner Ads are usually placed only on the following Five Website pages.
1. Home Page, 2. Batteries Topics Page, 3. Fuel Cell Topics Page,
4. Photovoltaics Topics Page, 5. Miscellaneous Topics Page
Other pages  can be made available
Site Locations are tailored to Supplier Offerings.
Ads are located on the Home page and at all four Topic Selector pages. This allows advertisers to direct advertising to the interests of the viewer. For example, a Lead-acid manufacturer may want to be on the Battery Topics Page, or a Photovoltaic product supplier would prefer to be on the Photovoltaic Topic page. Suppliers who want more general readership attention would select placement on the Home Page.
Placement Priority
Placement location of advertising in the Newlsetter is based on the earliest subscription date. For example if Newsletter advertising is placed on pages 2-7, the new advertiser will have placement on page 8. If a new ad is placed for a sponsored link, that ad will pe placed in the right column of the Topic page requested below all earlier placements. When a higher placed advertiser does not renew, all following advertisements will move up one place. Advertisers who have the top Sponsored link position will receive the first opportunity to obtain the Top Spot Ad location on that page if the previous Top Spot advertiser does not renew.

Quality treatment of the visitor is intended to maximize the visit and promote return visits. The advertising format, both in size and shape, provides each visitor with maximum quality awareness of the business and product and/or service, thus enhancing the image of the advertiser. Easy access to the advertiser's website is made by clicking on the artwork. It is strongly suggested that the artwork include some directive, i.e, "Click here for more information," so the visitor can easily be transferred to the advertiser's website by clicking on the Ad.
Who Should Advertise with BD?

This emphasis generally attracts upper management people from the President, CEO and General Manager categories. These people are in the battery, fuel cell, and photovoltaics businesses, but are also in related businesses which are affected by the topic materials, such as the electronics business, battery oprated product businesses, portable electronic device businesses, the automotive businesses, related government agencies, regulatory people and venture capitalists.
