What is a Banner Exchange?
A banner exchange is a group of web sites that exchange advertising with each other. Each web site has an banner advertisement that displays other web sites' banners. By displaying ads on their web site, banner exchange members generate free Advertising and site-linking for their own banners. At the bottom of this page you will see an example of a rotating 468x60 pixel banner.
We are the 'middle man' in the process, delivering and rotating banners on your web site with each request. When a banner is clicked on, we process the click-thru, and direct the individual to the respective member web site. In return for our services, we capture 1 out of every two banners displayed on our network, and use the ad space for sponsor advertising. Using a banner exchange is a great way to gain exposure for your web site. Your advertising is spread across an array of web sites, maximizing visibility. Our banner exchange will always be a free service.

Why do I need a PPC campaign?
Pay per click or PPC advertising is proven as the most revolutionary, targeted, and powerful advertising medium in existence today. Your ads will display only to people who have already expressed interest in your products or services. Payment is only due once they click on your ad and are sent to your website. In short, PPC advertising is supremely powerful and extremely profitable.
How much does each click cost?
You’re completely in control of the maximum amount you are willing to pay each time somebody clicks on your ad with PPC advertising. The higher your Pay per click is, the more people will want to show your ad, and the more clicks you will receive. Each click can range from $.05 to $20 or more, with a typical industry average of about $1.40 per click.
I’ve heard that PPC can be expensive. How much will my campaign be?
PPC campaigns are only as expensive as you allow them to be. When you register you are automatically set up an account, you set your budget and pre-pay, so you get no unexpected bills. The general rule is that the more you spend, the more traffic you’ll get. However, spending more doesn’t always guarantee a high return on your investment. Most successful campaigns begin with a budget that is comfortable but not too risky. You can always expand your budget if the results achieved are positive enough to justify a larger investment.
What does optimizing a campaign mean?
PPC campaign optimization is the process of making sure your advertising is focused in order to create a higher average return on every dollar spent. The goal with optimization is to both identify and expand upon the components of a campaign that provide the best return on investment, and eliminate the campaign components that are providing the least return on investment. With Bannerex potential promoters of your ads will need to get you approval, you can select websites that have similar clientele to yours.
