Help FirstBorn promote Mangaworkshop Part 2: Banner Time!

Post by FirstBorn » Wed Jun 22, 2005 3:39 pm

I have a request for you people. I am in need of a new banner. A 468 X 60 pixels banner. The last 2 months I had 5 banner running on the LinkBuddies network and it's time for something new, but I can not find the time. I know some of you are always willing to help, so I was hoping that some of you wanted to help me with this.

First, let me show you the 5 banners I have/had running and there statistics:

Image
CRT: 0.24% (86 clicks in 35,211 impressions)

Image
CRT: 0.09% (4 clicks in 4,373 impressions)

Image
CRT: 0.11% (12 clicks in 10,768 impressions)

Image
Made by Def Character
CRT: Unknown, banner stats got deleted, but I was lower then 0.20%

Let me explain some stuff, the CRT is important. It show's how many people actually click the banner out of how often it is shown. 0.20% is normal. Yes, 1 click out of 500 impressions (times the banner is shown) is normal. A higher percentage means the banner is good, a lower percentage means the banner isn't that good.

I was hoping you guys could help me out by making a banner or help me with some ideas/text for a banner.

The banner has to be:
* 468 X 60 pixels
* gif or jpg
* image can be animated gif
* Under 15 Kb (!)
* Contain the text Mangaworkshop and/or the url http://mangaworkshop.net/
* Contain the MWS logo (the way you use it is up to you ^_~)
* If images are used, one can only use original work. If you use others original work, please ask permission first

If the banner is not made by the above specifications, the LinkBuddies system will not accept the banner. So please do not ask me if the banner can be any different, because it can not. Period.

Just post your banners in this thread. Your help is greatly appriciated. ^^;;

Also, very special thanks go out to Def Character and Aikuza for helping me out by letting me use their original artwork.

Hehe.. my banner making frenzy last night was obstructed by a beer-party in Bijlmerpark. And I couldn't resist. But I'll try to make some banners at work today ;)

Are we restricted in using our own art in the banners? :P

No. Didn't you read the above text? "If the banner is not made by the above specifications, the LinkBuddies system will not accept the banner. So please do not ask me if the banner can be any different, because it can not. Period. "

I guess not, but you can only use original art (so no fan-art) and if you use art from others, please ask their permission.

I"VE UPDATED THE SPECIFICATION!

As for The Raging Spaniard; awesome banner and thanks for letting me use your art!
And Dustin C, thanks! Nice banner! But I had to alter it, because it was too big.

I'm a total retard on banner making, u said LinkBuddies I thought it was one of yours! XP

I hope its not over reaching, since wasting time ask one by one isnt my style, can I ask permission for everybody to use everybody else's art in this thread? hey, its totally ok to say no.

yes, go ahead, use EVERYBODIES ART, since obviously EVERYBODY is gonna give you their permisssion.

Listen, design something, see what artwork youre gonna use EXACTLY and then send a PM to the people whose art youre using. That way you dont sound like a dummie

Let me explain it in more detail: I/We make the banners to promote Mangaworkshop. But the company (LinkBuddies) that sends the banner all over the internet has some rules. I HAVE to obey these rules. No exceptions will be made, because the company is very strict. So I prefer Flash banners, but Flash banners are not allowed. Nothing I can do about it. ^^

Ok here's one I made at work using the ALT+TAB many times.

Image
I've compressed it just over 15Kb (15.030 bytes).

Oh Def, can I use your characters in my banner??!! Oh pretty please!!

One small tip to all you banner builders: Keep your banners easy on the eye's. This will helf with file compression and easy viewing. That way ppl will see the main message of the banner a lot faster. Look at the banner clickrate in the top post to see my point (especially the top banner).
