    16. 16. A note about functionality:Various levels of interaction, animation/motion and sound arepossible within banners. Unlike print or TV, where theboundaries of what’s possible have been (more or less)mandated, online advertising offers quite a range of options.The key to success is to talk about strategy (i.e. whattechnology do we need to impact our audience effectively)and the media buy (i.e. what technology is available in ourmedia budget and placement) long before creative conceptingeven begins.This is why it matters to you.
    17. 17. Functional types—Static/Back Up:These executions provide a very simple level of content. Theyappears only if the browser or server is unable to display thepreferred banner format. Static banners are like traditional out-of-home billboards—everything related to the idea has to beacknowledged in one space.
    18. 18. Functional types—(Flash) Fixed, non-expanding, non-video serving: Typically incorporating animation/motion and potentially sound (which must be user-initiated, per most media contracts). http://bannerpalooza.com/portfolio/SonyVaio_300x250.html
    19. 19. Functional types—(Flash) Video serving and/or expanding: Most commonly referred to as “rich media.” Here we’ve got a full arsenal of tools: animation/motion, a larger space (after expansion), video, database functionality http://bannerpalooza.com/portfolio/3MPrivacyFilters/index.html

    25. 25. Media buy + site specifications We’re still working, somewhat, in the Wild West. Unlike broadcast TV or print with NTSC and CMYK standards, banner ads are often subject to last-minute changes brought by publishers, networks and the advancement of technology. As a creative, you want to know about the following up front: •The site list (media buy) and specific placements as well as file size (bandwidth) limits, looping limits, sound + video specs, required controls for all sites on the list •If you’re utilizing data capture (form fields), what info is required by the client + allowed by the site? What’s the hosting plan for the data? •Destination plan for all units you’re creating. Where will you be sending people who click? What content will be there?
    26. 26. NetworksSo this is how your banner ad gets distributed. Networks act in between theagency/production firm/media company (representing the client brand) and the sitepublisher (i.e. nytimes.com) to facilitate serving, tracking and maintaining yourbanner ad’s placement. Some of the majors are:Pointroll (http://pointroll.com)EyeWonder (http://eyewonder.com)EyeBlaster (http://eyeblaster.com)DartMotif = DoubleClick, i.e. Google (http://doubleclick.com)AdMob (http://admob.com)

    28. 28. Success criteriaHow will your banner ads be measured?Here are a few methodologies:Click-through rate (CTR) The ratio of page-views to clicks on the ad, expressed as thepercentage of a page’s total visitors who clicked on the banner. In this age, arespectable average banner CTR could be 1%.Cost-per-click (CPC) Takes the cost of the media, divides by the number of click-throughs.View-Through Rate (VTR) Less common, rapidly gaining popularity, and more holistic,this measurement integrates a value for length of time a user sees the banner along withany time spent interacting with the unit, in addition to any click-through.

    30. 30. Storyboards“Whatever works, so long as it’s legible to other people.”Words of advice:•If you’re storyboarding an online ad, do it to production spec.•Make your frames 120x600px if that’s one of the sizes in the media plan.•Work at 100% scale, at 72dpi.•And don’t be afraid to write up a treatment to help explain what you want tosee happening in terms of animation style, editorial sequence, rollover effectsand other actions.
    31. 31. Storyboard examples (120x600px)
    32. 32. Storyboard examples (728x90px, expandable) Functional description 1) The banner begins with AGE logo, headline, CTA, legal and “egg curtain.” 2) The “egg curtain” parts from the middle, revealing a short video clip, in this case, of a nest egg getting checked on a treadmill. (No sound.) 3) Any cursor-movement over the unit initiates banner expansion. (If the user doesn’t engage, the curtain sequence and video repeats itself a second time.) 4) On expansion, the full-length video plays from the beginning, with sound. To the right, new copy and a new CTA appear.
    33. 33. Storyboard examples (300x250px) Functional description This is a fixed (non-expanding) unit. All of the information is displayed immediately. There is no loading sequence. But the viewer almost immediately notices one unusual element—the Passat’s headlights are magnetically “attached” to your cursor (via Flash). When you move your cursor, the Passat’s Bi-Zenon headlights follow along.

    40. 40. 1. Pick at least three platforms.Corporate site, microsite, e-commerce site, social network(s), LBS(s), game, etc.2. Articulate what each platform contributes.A way to get more information? An entertaining campaign extension? Financial incentive? Status incentive?3. Explain why people would flow from one to the other.A more immersive experience? A different type of content? More incentives and rewards?4. How do offline elements contribute?Do they drive people into the ecosystems? Supplement the experience? Provide a layer of interaction?Remember: this is going to wind up in your digital portfolio.
