Pros and Cons of Online Advertisements

There are many things to consider before you decide to integrate third party advertisements into your company’s website. The main advantage to allowing advertisements on your website is that you will generate passive income. Depending on your website and which advertising company you chose this revenue could be significant. But some visitors find websites with advertisements cluttered and unprofessional. If you do decide to add advertisements to your company’s website it is best to consult a professional web designer who will make the advertisements look like they belong and do not distract from your content.

Advertising Options

  • Google Adsense. Google’s advertisements are traditional banners and animated blocks which surround your content. Adsense promises to post only relevant advertisements on your website, but you have no control over what products they chose.
  • Amazon Associates. Amazon’s program allows you to post specific items on your website. This gives you full control over what products are being advertised on your website. But you are only paid if one of your visitors actually purchases the item from the link on your site.
  • Text Link Ads. Text Link weaves hyperlinks to third party sites into your content. The ratio of revenue to space used is the best of any online advertisement company. But some visitors find the in text links distracting and unprofessional.

Maximizing Your Revenue

Not all websites are able to make significant income by using online advertisements. Revenue generating websites must be professional in appearance and easy to navigate. Your website must attract a large number of unique visitors per day and those visitors must click on the advertisements. Professional website designers can design your site so that the advertisements do not distract from your content, yet remain attractive to visitors.
