Using free web banner generators is a great way to make banner ads if you’re on a budget. Banner advertising is one of the most popular advertising methods online. Not the most effective, but definitely popular. If you’d like to create your own banners for free, below are links to four free web banner generators you can find online to help you get started.
- Quick Banner – http://www.quickbanner.com
If you’re in a hurry and wouldn’t mind settling with a non animated banner, you should try this generator first. With 500+ free banner templates, you’re sure to find something that you like. All you have to do is browse through their templates, select the one that you want, change the text and download the finished banner on to your computer.
- Ad Designer – http://addesigner.com
If you’re more interested in an animated banner, you may want to try the Ad Designer free web banner generators. To use the Ad Designer banner generator, you will have to register as a member. Registration is currently free, so you may want to check them out.
They provide samples of their banners. Browse through them first to get a feel of what their designs are like. If you’re happy, go ahead and sign up. Like Quick Banner, all you have to do is select your banner template, change the text and download it to your computer.
- Animation Online
Here’s another free animated web banner generator. The banner templates here are not as appealing but I guess it’s a matter of preference and you may prefer them. To be sure, just go to the Animation Online web site to check them out.
- Crecon Connectivity’s Banner Creator
Personally, among all the free web banner generators mentioned here, I like this one the best. Crecon Connectivity has two different free web banner generators: old and new. As you’d probably suspect, the new generator has more advanced features.
The new banner generator allows you more flexibility in your web banner design. You can change the size, style and type of font you use. You can have your text added anywhere on the banner. You can also add another image in your banner (this is useful if you have a logo). You may even choose the size of your banner. This means you can opt to create a header image for your web site instead.
The only potential problem is the limited amount of banner background image they have. Why do I say ‘potential’? The thing is, Crecon Connectivity’s generator allows you to use any background you like. You can type in the URL to almost any banner template on the net and use it with the generator’s features.
If you’re thinking of creating a banner quickly, this is probably not for you but if you’re creative and would like more control over your banner design, check this generator out.
There you go. These free web banner generators should help you get started but to make the most out of banner advertising, you’d be better off with a professional web banner designer who knows not just how to create banners but also the physchological effect it would have on viewers.
