Why Multi-Size and Multi-Shape Ads are a must for your Digital Advertising Strategy

When it comes to your ad spend you want to focus on performance

You want your message delivered across multiple formats, but you don’t want to waste your budget on multiple ad creatives or have your design resources spending their time reformatting for multi-size and shape.

Display campaigns can be simple and straightforward, here’s our top tips:

#1 How display ads fit into your digital strategy

Display ads, including banners, are a cost-effective way to showcase your products or services across a huge number of websites that are relevant to your audience. Put simply, your audience will be on these websites and so will you.

Although it’s a passive audience, display drives brand recognition and recall, crucial for growing your customer base. It also ‘fuels’ your lower funnel audiences, retargeting users that have already engaged with your website, and this, as we all know, is one of the most effective tactics to drive conversion.

#2 The size and shape of your display ads

Display ads come in different shapes and sizes, depending on where they are positioned on a webpage, these include MPUs, Leaderboards, Billboards, Full Banners and Wide Scrapers to name just a few.

Different websites will have a choice of available positions, where you can decide to place your ads. You’ll need to think about adjustments in creative approach, as the ad changes in size across different devices, from mobile to laptop.

#3 The best performing ads sizes

According to Google Adsense, the most effective and successful sizes are:

  • 728 x 90px – Leaderboard
  • 300 x 600px – Half page
  • 300 x 250px – Medium Rectangle (MPU)
  • 336 x 280px – Large Rectangle

But this will depend on your specific industry. Your niche may demand more visual or more text-focused ads. Certain shapes and sizes may really work for your customers and will encourage them to respond to your ads. Testing will help you find what works, this will form the backbone of your ongoing strategy.

#4 Understanding the performance of your digital display campaigns

Continually testing size & position on the page to learn what performs best for your brand, industry and audience will be the key part of your ongoing strategy.
