Seven Different Ad Types

iJoomla Ad Agency supports all major ad types: Standard Banners, Flash Banners, Floating Ads, Pop-Up and Pop-Under Ads, Ad Code and Text Ads.

Text Ads

A text ad is any advertisement using text-based hyperlinks. Because they don’t look like ads, text ads tend to have higher click through rates and can be completely integrated into your site’s design by controlling the color, fonts, background, etc.

You may also add an image to your text ad to give it a more interesting look. We call it "Facebook style" ads because you can see these kinds of ads on Facebook.
