I was wondering if someone would like to create me an advertisement that I can place on my homepage advertising to selling adspace. The banner should be the approximate width or smaller than my page (NOT LARGER) and should indicate there is adspace available, click here to apply. I'd like one that is appealing - hopefully with lots of graphics/animation but not too much. Don't worry about a link in the banner, I'll add the link through my site builder. I'm not too good of an artist when it comes to these kind of banners. If more than one person wants to help, I'll chose the one I like best or maybe I'll use them all and post 'em on different pages around my site. I also don't have good software currently on my computer, paint and ms office is about it. If you can, try to make it blend in with my site - chose colors appropriately!

what software do you use for that? paint? or somethin' else? I wouldn't mind trying to create one myself, but I'm not that great when it comes to paint. I can create really good stuff using MS Excel... :)

http://sitebuilder.yola.com/sites/D7d... ... tell me what you think. I created this is MS Excel and then I copied into paint, saved it, then uploaded to yola and croped it down to size.

I plan on putting a link in the image so that it takes the person clicking it to a 'form' to apply for advertising. But I still need to know the scope of selling adspace.

Would it be a horizontal or potrait banner? I am very interested in designing one for you.

What do you mean "Large of space" Do you mean how big it is? Cant you resize it? I wasnt expecting for you to use it at that size, hehe.

I could probably resize it, but then it's probably going to make the letters too small or blurred. I would think!

ok, I was mistaken. I just resized it and it looks really good. I'm going to use it. :) Now I just have to create my form and connect a link to the ad. Can I create a form whereas a credit card card purchase is linked to it. Instead of the only route I know is to fill out the form and then separate from the make the purchase. Like a credit card processing that allows you to create a custom form for the purchases. Paypal doesn't seem to have this option (although they might that I'm not aware of) and I've never used google checkout if you know anything about them or any other services?

umm... I was thinking about trying a vertical one. but you can submit a few and I'll chose or maybe be able to use them all. Did you check the one I did? That just took me three minutes. If you can create one with additional graphics or looks I'd appreciate it. What I would really like is some animation but not sure the best way to do that. Like getting the Advertise Here to fly into the banner, that would be cool.

I can create excellent animation and stuff through powerpoint, but not sure if I can get something from there into the website.

I can't seem to right click and save this to my computer. Can you send it to me in a format I can upload to my file manager?

Ahh thats the problem, you cant. Its flash. as far as I am aware you cant copy flash. But you could just script it in using HTML.

I'll try placing the featured article next to the ad? Sound good? I like both yours and UK Duke's, so I'm probably going to use the one with animation (to get people's attention) on the homepage and I'll use yours in places around my site. I'd also like a banner type of ad to place on the majority of my pages (horizontal banner - not vertical)
