Small but perfectly formed

10 x 8

Big, loud, full-page ads are best for selling off the page – fact?  Having more room for images, information, flashes, offers and coupons guarantee you’ll be noticed – right?  Wrong.  Full pages definitely have their place, especially with last minute deals, and are important for driving volume, but smaller, fractional ads can work just as hard.  So, with only 25% space available in a ¼ page, how do you attract attention and deliver positive results?

  • Headline is key; it has to make readers stop and look
  • Strong hero image
  • Clear, compelling offer
  • Key information in bullet points
  • Call to action is phone and website, not a coupon
  • Great position, ideally solus on the page, but certainly under editorial. It’s harder for readers to pass you by under editorial compared to a full page where there isn’t other copy to stop them.

Many of our small ads become our hardest-working, most cost-effective sizes, including these we use for water solutions provider, Kinetico.
