Thought that this made for some interesting reading:
Food for thought? :bigeyes:
How are those stats made? where does the research for that come from?
This info is basically out of thin air. I doubt the "report" is accurately. With these metrics it should mean that the banners should have been long gone, because virtually no one would click them.
If this was the case why is the banner ad business still big business? I think this company needs to research their research.
This article was published as a commercial copy.Like we do on IM.
They want you to think they know best and that is why you will contact them for consulting or other purchases of their services.
Why if so G uses adsens with media? they look like banners [and they are].
Those numbers are extremely exaggerated...
Damn if that's the case, then I'm going to be a lottery winning, Navy Seal team six member, who uses his Harvard education to survive a plane crash!
How could anyone believe those figures LOL
Need I say more?
I like banners... thought people won't click on it, they will most likely Google the title or the website... win-win
So I'd win 30 lotteries before I'd click on a banner? I'm a bilionare already lol
I guess their banner just really sucked badly... lol
you should think about the Mt Everest too
to OP: this is plain BS and how do you manage to put this in the Affiliate Programs section?
Creative, funny and original banner ads always get clicks or get noticed.
You're completely right. Solve Media is trying to get their name out and they did it by releasing this kind of information that is completely false. I'm sure everyone that does do CTR knows their own ratios and how they don't match up at all to these statistics
Whilst those figures are complete bs. I'm in the advertising industry & it's not all about getting clicks to your Ad. Many companies like to get exposure, so if they're able to get a banner on a website that is getting some good traffic, that's great exposure for their company.
Now,that was a great and funny title...
I think you're a lot more likely to use your Seal team six training to survive a plane crash. You might be more likely to use your Harvard education to survive a stock market crash.
Any PR is good PR and Solve Media is just trying to bring attention to themselves, even if their report is completely inaccurate
Separate names with a comma.
