Guidelines

BEST PRACTICES

  • Short, concise message
  • One dominant element
  • Strong call to action - tell the user why they should click on the advertisement
  • Use an abbreviated location description, especially if it is local

FILE TYPES

  • JPG or JPEG - recommended for static ads that contain photographs, graduated screens or several colors
  • Static GIF - recommended for static ads with solid or few colors
  • Animated GIF - recommended for ads with solid or few colors and only one or two animated frames
  • Shockwave (SWF) - recommended for complicated animation including multiple frames, colors and graphics
  • Third party ad tags (testing through AdOps recommended before scheduling)

AVAILABLE RICH MEDIA
