Part 1: What is Banner?

A banner is a long strip of cloth with text or images on it and often bears the logo, information, and slogan of an organization. It is commonly used for branding and advertising purposes. They can be hung in public areas where large crowds of people can see them for maximum exposure. These physical banners are useful for advertising purposes, as they are often quite large in size, meaning they are perfect for quickly grabbing an audience's attention. They are also relatively cost-effective and easy to mass-produce.

Besides physical banners, online banner ads are becoming an increasingly popular advertising method for companies in today's digital age. Banner ads are ads placed on a web page. People visiting the web page can see the banner ad and also have the option to click the banner ad, thus driving traffic to the advertiser. Online banner ads have become a necessity. With many people engaging with e-content more than ever, banner ads have become the most effective way to reach the largest and most relevant audience possible.
