Rolling back the clock for many (some still do but not as many), you may have picked up a newspaper or magazine and without realising it you have read an advert about a new power tool, a new technology or about a half price sofa sale. Classified impressions are not dissimilar, only they are the internet’s equivalent.

Unlike traditional text-based advertisements, online display advertising uses the power of image to capture attention to drive sales and build a brand.

Although display advertising has long been used in printed media, for example within magazines, new media display advertising tends to use video, animation and audio elements to drive the desired messages home much more effectively than ever before.

How to Get Your Business Noticed With Display Advertising

In the past, a display advert might be placed in a newspaper to draw attention to a business but targeting it to certain demographics could be very hit and miss. Perhaps an advert might be carried in a broadsheet or a tabloid only to try and maximise impact.

In the internet age, however, business display impressions, also commonly Known as ‘extended reach’, allow display advertisements to be extremely well targeted so you are really noticed by the group or groups that are most desirable. In short, a pre-determined demographic can be honed in on via websites that these groups are likely to visit.

Referred to as an impression, this type of website advertisement constitutes a highly effective tool for all sorts of organisations, allowing them to convey messages to as wide or as narrow an audience as they deem fit.

How Can Display Advertising Help?
