Nine different projects were created to rhyme with the brand’s name. One thing that stands out about these examples is that they commit to one direction, spark interest by connecting with a feeling, and let their linked landing page do the rest.

Bing:

c7aed8bc bing

If you see at these banner ads, there are 3 situations: a brand that is proud of the project it is sponsoring, a brand that creates emotion and a brand that sells a promise.

And when you see a brand in one of these 3 situations, that means it is on the right direction.

Dropbox:

Blue and white colour combination makes the banner attractive. But what we actually love about Dropbox’s banner ads is the great and creative headline talking about the benefits of using their product.

Evernote:

Evernote is a great tool for every marketer or businessman should use. And the message you find on their banner ads is either “Work Smarter” or “Make Every Day Smarter”.

This ad has a great Landing Page too, see our 100 landing pages post.
