HyperBanner Utility Lets Users Create Instant Web Banners

HyperBanner this week introduced QuickBanner, its free banner creation utility designed to enable small businesses to quickly and easily develop Web site banner ads.

QuickBanner provides a banner creation solution for developing professional, high-quality banner ads in a matter of minutes. Specialized templates are provided for target audiences and are optimized for maximum visibility. Users do not need professional graphics or training to use QuickBanner, and the tool is free.

The QuickBanner utility also displays helpful tips for making a useful banner ad, and walks the user through a simple, step-by-step banner creation process. The designer chooses a banner background from a gallery of ready-made templates, which includes categories such as music, martial arts, sports or even templates customized to the user's country. Then text is added which will entice visitors to the site. Once the text is added, the completed banner is displayed within seconds, with additional special effects and animation available.

Once the banner is posted in the banner exchange network, users can track the banner's effectiveness using HyperBanner's Full Statistics package. This provides comprehensive, easy-to-understand metrics, and banner click-through rates can be checked and monitored.

QuickBanner is a part of HyperBanner's Banner Exchange, an "end-to-end promotion solution" for small businesses. Membership in Banner Exchange is free and enables members to exchange Web site banners with other members in any of HyperBanner's 16 topic-based networks, covering special interests such as travel, sports, finance, health and music.
