As a website owner and marketer I decided it was time I created my own banner, or at least tried ^^ They can look pretty cool and are great promotional tools that you shouldn’t overlook.
So here I am, doing what all of us do when we need something online, ask our friend google ! =) “how can I make my own banner?” And I came across a few websites, but only two of them met my expectations :
What I Liked About Them
Mybannermaker is free and easy to use and doesn’t require you to download anything. The only downside to it is that your banner will show their branding =/. If you would like to remove it from your final banner you’ll have to get the VIP membership ($25/year).
Bannerdesignerpro is also pretty cool, here’s a demo on youtube! https://youtu.be/XKd5iB-UN7Y And here’s a link to download a free tutorial of the software and give it a try! http://www.bannerdesignerpro.com/download.asp
Both websites are easy to use, quick and the results are pretty decent for a newbie like me! =) I will show you what you can do with the free version of mybannermaker.com. It really took me less than 5 minutes to create it so do know that if you were more meticulous than me you’d get a more elaborate result =)
