What is display advertising?
Display ads are an ideal way to increase brand awareness. Even if you don’t know the definition of a display ad, you’ve probably encountered one while browsing the web. Display ads are clickable ads that attract customers to your website, social media platform, or other digital medium, sometimes to perform a specific action. They can consist of video, images, or creative copy, and you can place them on third-party websites, apps, and social media.
Display ads are an effective form of digital marketing, as most internet users encounter them while going about their day. Display ads can appear anywhere on a webpage, usually at the top, bottom, or side, and they can remain static or scroll down the page with the user. Most display ads are rectangular or square, such as banner ads—an advertisement that spans the length of a webpage or other online media property. Video ads are another form of display advertising. They increase brand awareness by highlighting your product or brand in a short, informative video.
