Help GL Design banners ads to attract new members (Contribution wanted).

Post#1 by tim » 30 Oct 2016, 16:52


Right now when you're not logged in to GIMP LEARN forum.
You'll see this banner (click on image to see actual size shown to Non-members).
Image

We would like this space to rotate between different images that might attract new members to join.
So if you feel like you're up for the challenge, you can design a banner or banners to attract new membership.

Specs: a .png, .gif, or .jpg of dimension 614 × 110 pixels (wider images can be considered, but we'd prefer it if all banners are the same size).

So pull out your creativity and help us attract new members.
Banner(s) can say things like (but not limited to) "GIMP LEARN forum", "Where we can all learn from each other", "Free Membership", "Free To Join"to attract members to join (that is the goal).

Thanks for reading and considering contributing to GIMP LEARN forum.

UPDATE: I have decided to remove the banner ads for GIMP LEARN forum (our own banner ads), as it is sufficient to show text above Google Adsense ads.
It is enough information for guest to click on "Join Today!" after the "Ads below are only shown to Non-members".
I think it's cleaner looking and will provide a better guest experience while browsing the site.

I used to show GIMP LEARN banner before ezoic's ads now that i have ezoic ads i don't show banners for GIMP LEARN anymore.
Maybe for people who have their own websites/blog can show these banners for us.
It would make more sense to show these banners outside of GL.
Inside GL, they're already here so i guess we don't really have a use for them.
Thanks anyways GIMPER, maybe i'll use it on my blog.

I decided to use this on blog (just on top of my blog http://flower2fruit.blogspot.ca/) I show random GL banners.
If you have a site/blog and you want to show these GL banners you can use the below code it'll show random banners all linking to GL forum.

Code: Select all

<a href="http://gimplearn.net/"><img src="http://gimplearn.net/styles/prosilver/theme/images/membership_banners/random.php"></a>

Thank you RJKD,
it's up in the rotation here --> styles/prosilver/template/random_banners_script.html (just refresh page to see it rotate randomly through banners)
and you can see all banners in rotation here --> styles/prosilver/theme/images/membership_banners/
