Do Website Banners Really Help a Business and Are They Really Affordable?

Why Do Website Banner Companies Charge So Much?
Go to MySpace or just about any commercial sites or blogs and you will see a banner of some sort displayed somewhere with in the content of that page. It’s like a cattle run – the ‘web banner ‘ industry probably boomed when ‘Google AdWords’ was born! Pay to have YOUR banner or website 먹튀폴리스 seen on their affiliate pages or elsewhere on the web, i.e. Google itself. And to be honest, it probably works.

More to the point – while recently ‘driving’ through the information highway we so lovingly refer to as the internet (for which I could certainly NOT live without), I noticed a plethora of websites that capitalize in this industry. Just Google “web banner design” and you’ll see. There are approximately 15 MILLION websites out there that refer to that keyword phrase alone!! Upon closer inspection, I realized that you would be hard up to find a company out there that will charge you less than $18.00 for ONE design.

Well, that’s not really much is it? Think again! The average time it takes to design a premium banner is about 15 – 20 minutes (I know because I have a banner design company myself). So, lets calculate that – for the sake of it – lets say it takes 20 minutes to design a well created ad – and the company is charging $20.00 per design – they make 3 banners in an hour – that’s $60.00 PER HOUR! $86,000 a year if they work approximately 30 hours a week! That is incredibly steep. Yes, banner design programs can be costly but they’ve basically made their money back with just two or three designs! Not to mention that this ‘job title’ is not considered “hard labor”.
