Purpose of banner advertising is to promote a brand. Banner advertising may take the visitor from the host site to the advertiser's site or to a specific landing page. In this form of online advertising, an advertisement is embedded in a website. The intention is to draw traffic to a website by linking to the advertiser's website. One of the most effective forms of digital advertising is banner advertising.

Banners refer to the use of a square graphical screen that extends across the top, bottom or pages of a website. While the first kind of banner ad is referred to as a ranking, the second is referred to as a high-rise and is placed in the side bars of a web page. Banners are not text-based, but image-based and are a favourite way of promoting your site on-line.

A banner advertisement is designed to advertise a trademark and/or bring users from the hosting website to the advertiser's website. Banners, also known as displays, consist of fixed or motion pictures or mediums and are usually placed in highly visible areas on highly frequented web sites. Banners are appealing because they can help build market recognition, lead generation and reach a new audiences (e.g. by giving a user the opportunity to subscribe to a newsletters or free trials before they leave).

While banner ad works essentially like conventional ad, the way the advertisers pay the hosting company can be very different from it. There are three types of banner ad payments: per imprint costs (payment for each website user who sees the ad), per click costs (payment for each website user who hits the ad and goes to the advertiser's website), or per promotion costs (payment for each website user who hits the ad goes to the advertiser's website and does a job, such as completing a request or buying).

Affiliate networking is responsible for bringing together affiliates with sites that want to advertise. You keep an overview of the available ad spaces and coordinate them with the advertiser's demands. However, the underlying technologies that enable ad serving network operators to do this are a single ad serving engine that chooses unique advertisements targeted to the website user on the basis of either a keyword from the visitor's browsing behaviour or the overall contexts of the website contents.

Banners and practically all on-line advertisements currently use the real-time bidder technique of programme bids, which allows licensed businesses to place bids on ad spaces during the period required to upload a banner ad. Its first banner ad was used on the Wired Magazine website (then in 1994.

On the banner was written: "Have you ever directly pressed here with the click of your mouse? by now? Conventional banner ad such as the example above has spread to other formats such as Facebook advertisements and Instagram-Sponsored Advert. About one-third of the expenditure for on-line displays is on Facebook and Twitter. As a result of the trends in on-line advertisement, expenditure on digitally displayed advertisements has exceeded that of search-based advertisement in recent years.

From 2017, around one fifth of all on-line advertising expenditure will be accounted for by electronic displays such as banner advertising and similar advertisements.
