Display ads aim to expose your brand and products to as many people as possible.
They do this by being very eye-catching and interactive while at the same time being very affordable.
Display ads aren't just visible on Google-owned platforms but are shown on millions of websites and platforms.
In this guide, we will learn how to create display ads using AdScale.
What to avoid
Google has some strict policies when creating banners for display ads.
Here are a few things to avoid:
Using overlaid logos
Avoid overlaying a logo on top of an image, as this can be repetitive in certain ad layouts. Images where the logo is incorporated into the photo are allowed.
Using overlaid text
Avoid inserting text on top of an image.
Images where the text is naturally incorporated are allowed. For example, a photo of a text sign would be naturally embedded text.
Using overlay buttons
Buttons (for example, "play", "download", or "close") violate Google's Google Ads policy as they are non-functional in display ads and therefore mislead the user.
