We’ve launched a new kind of partnership! The team at Chix Creative designed a new banner ad template for us.
Given that Canned Banners is still an all-male team, all our ad templates look like something that guys would design. This has definitely narrowed the variation in our template gallery: nothing but sharp corners and bold colors as far as the eye can see (we often find ourselves wanting to add spikes, flames, and gun turrets to the banners, but we’ve somehow maintained the self-control to avoid this).
Instead of a baby, we were thinking Flame Dragon with Spikey Chain accents.
But now the tyranny of our in-house template designs is over! The ladies at Chix Creative designed a very nice new template for us, and best of all, it looks nothing like anything we’ve created ourselves. So the old saying goes: “variety is the spice of online display advertising”…or something like that.
After several months of toiling in the Canned Banners Labs, we’re excited to announce that Canned Banners now offers dynamic display ad services, giving clients the ability to personalize their display ads in real time. Why the amazing new product? Honestly, we were just getting tired of people asking us “Do you guys do dynamic ads?” and not being able to answer with an enthusiastic “Yes!”
Dynamic ad solution partner: Exact Drive
Critical to our dynamic ad solution is our partner, digital media agency Exact Drive. Exact Drive connects dynamic display ads with customer eyeballs; they offer an end-to-end suite of services including:
But couldn’t any media agency do this? Technically, yes. But we’ve already done a lot of development work, testing, and research with Exact Drive to create a dynamic ad solution that’s powerful and ready to go right out of the box, giving our clients the benefit of shorter setup times and lower overall cost.
AdRoll is an ad network that specializes in retargeting. Yesterday AdRoll added a Canned Banners button within their campaign building tool. This allows AdRoll customers to visit the Canned Banners Ad Builder when they need banner ads and get a 20% discount!
The 20% discount should be automatically applied by clicking through the Canned Banners button within AdRoll.com. If the 20% discount doesn’t show up, just apply the coupon code ADROLL20 on the same page where you’re asked to review your banners prior to final checkout.
UPDATE 4-Dec-2012: Please note that the ADROLL20 coupon code was discontinued in June 2012 when we lowered our pricing.
