In general, banner ads are easy to ignore. First of all, they’re virtually everywhere. And many of them blandly blend into a website’s landscape. In fact, click-through rates for banner ads are so unimpressive that some companies have nixed them from their marketing budgets.
However, not all ads are created equal. Mashable recently compiled a list of 10 banner ads it deems “insanely clickable.” They’re all pretty interesting, but my five favorite belong to Kraft‘s (NYSE:KFT) Stride Gum, Metlife (NYSE:MET), Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL), Honda‘s (NYSE:HMC) Acura and IKEA. Here’s a look at those fun banner ads.
Stride’s Ridiculously Long Banner Ad
Met Life’s “Play Like Schroeder”
Apple’s “Get a Mac” Part 2
Acura’s Wired.com Ad
IKEA’s Small Store
Head on over to Mashable to check out the other five banner ads that are fun to click.
