Sometimes called banner ads, they build brand awareness across smartphones, tablets and desktops that in turn boosts the likelihood of a sale. It's obvious that getting them right is critical to your success. But that's why we're going beyond the obvious by letting you in on Yariv's 7 Rules for Exceptional Digital Display Ads, revealed in the following slides. Before we dive into the rules, we do have to make a confession: we're going to tell you something a little obvious. The shape, size and frequency change easily to fit your audience, your message and your budget.

  4. 4. Rule #2 Great advertising campaigns may seem like magic but are really based on hard-core data. Visits several sites to check salary ranges at competing hospital pharmacies and to research purchase of automated dispensing units. That data is collected as a person travels across the internet, searching for answers, reading industry news, researching competitors, researching business products and services and attending webinars. Data allows marketers to cherry-pick their audience and deliver ads that are highly targeted to that person’s interests, as interpreted by recent searches and site visits. And not just any ads, but ads perfect for a person’s buying journey, from brand awareness to post-sale. © 2016 MultiView.

  7. 7. Rule #5 Digital display ads make efficient use of your marketing dollars. Yes, traditional marketing plays an important role. You still need a website, trade shows, conferences, direct mail and media relations. But, data-driven display ads help you influence the buyer precisely where they are, at precisely the right moment in a real-time process called programmatic advertising. The challenge: Real-time buying means your display ads must compete on web pages with any other company hoping for that reader’s attention. © 2016 MultiView. All Rights Reserved. 7 Programmatic advertising works like this: How Do You Stand Out?... A reader goes to a webpage where advertising spots are available. You participate in a bidding process to place your ad in front of that reader. In 200 milliseconds, the winners deliver their ads to that page. Personas and targeting deliver exactly the right ad.

For the B2B purveyor of products and services this means your ads must visually compete with B2C ads. Consider that vice president of engineering you wish to capture with your ad. Many companies could be targeting him, both consumer and professional, based on his recent online behavior. After all, he’s a business buyer and a consumer buyer. During his next visit to, your VP may be served ads for your product, his next vacation destination and his son’s college. © 2016 MultiView.

It’s been a fun journey from fish farming on a kibbutz in Israel to here. In between, I went to art school for photography and animation, worked as an animator, then joined an ecommerce firm that created immersive shopping experiences (it was hot in 1998!) for world-famous luxury brands like Neiman Marcus, Brooks Brothers, Kate Spade and Barneys NY. From there I joined another start-up that evolved into Sizmek, then moved to, which sold to AOL. I even ran an ad agency in NYC before coming to Dallas. I still love photography and English football (that’s soccer in American). Follow me on B2B Connected Yariv's 7 Rules for Smart Digital Campaigns
