An HTML5 banner is a type of display ad that uses standard HTML5 code to create interactive, engaging ads that display on desktops and mobile devices.

How to Create an HTML5 Banner ad
To create an HTML5 banner ad, you’ll need to use an HTML5 editor. The best way to get started is to search for “free HTML5 ad maker” in your browser. Once you find a free HTML5 ad maker, you’ll be prompted to create a new ad. At that point, you can upload your banner image and enter the URL of your website. If your banner is text-based, you can also enter the ad’s call-to-action. Your ad’s appearance will be based on your input – so start experimenting, and be sure to check out other advertisers’ ads to get some inspiration for your own designs. You’ll want to use an ad exchange to run an HTML5 ad.
Where can I see HTML5 Banners?
You’ll probably notice HTML5 banners as you browse the web – but if you want to examine them in detail, you can use a browser plug-in to display them. In Chrome, for example, you can install the Adblock Plus plug-in and then go to the menu. From there, select “Enabled on this site” and choose “Adobe Flash.” Next, go to the website you want to browse and click “Adobe Flash” in the top-right corner. A menu will appear on the left side of your browser, with tabs for each element you wish to display.
Change the sizes of your HTML5 ad
If you’re running your ad on a desktop computer, you’ll want to select the “Full-page” option. This will display your ad across the entire desktop window. If you want your ad to display in a rectangular space beside another website, select “Rectangle.” If you want your ad to take up a portion of a mobile device screen, select “Mobile device.” You can also select “Mobile device (landscape)” if you want the ad to be displayed on a horizontal, desktop-like screen.
Use video in your HTML5 ad
If you want to incorporate video into your HTML5 ad, select “Video.” Keep in mind that your ad will still appear on a mobile device as a rectangle that’s 7 seconds long and 4 times as tall as it is wide. To create an HTML5 ad with video, you’ll need to use one of many online tools. The process is similar to creating a text-based ad, but without the text.
Where Can I Run an HTML5 Ad?
You can run an HTML5 ad on any site that uses ad technology. That includes major sites like Facebook, Google, and Microsoft’s Bing. You can run your ad on any exchange that offers HTML5 ad units. The most popular ad exchanges for HTML5 ads are DoubleClick (owned by Google), AdRoll, and Smaato. You can create an account with one or more of these exchanges and then create an ad to start the ad campaign. You can also use an ad management platform, such as AdEspresso, AdWords, Facebook Ads, or Google Ads, to manage your ad. Each of these platforms offers support for HTML5 ads, so you can create your ad once and then make adjustments across ad platforms.
While it’s still early in the transition to HTML5 ads, they are becoming increasingly important in the marketing world. If you want to be successful with your advertising campaigns, you’ll want to incorporate HTML5 ad units.
