Best place to create free banner ads
I have took the time to research the various free banner and ad creating programs on the web so you don't have to. In this article I will list all of the programs I have found, what I like or dislike about them and which one in my opinion is the best.

TOP 3:

  • (On-Line) This one is easy to get started using, it has quite a few (91) pre-made styles to select from. The only downside is that a text ad is displayed for on each ad you create.

  • (Download Program) This program creates more sizes than just standard banners. Once you download the program its very easy to get started. This program has a lot of options and is highly recommended. The only downside is that there is 15 day trial after which you will have to pay $35.00 to continue using it.

  • (On-Line) HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! This website does not allow you to create banner ads for free, but I would like to mention it here because some of the ads you can create with this program are pretty amazing and would get you a much higher click-through rate than traditional banners.
