You can also find this post on my blog Scott Rohn’s Thoughts. It also being posted here because its an important topic. And also just because I want to Ta Dah

You know its been said that design is a very important part of your business in the online business world. The design of your website, Your logo, banners, squeeze pages, some folks call them capture pages, landing pages, splash pages, Anything visual that represents you and your business. Then of course we’re told we should make our own stuff don’t use the stuff in the affiaite area with that I agree. But now what well you can use Adkreator to make your ads. They’ll be unique to you but the question is are they good enough? Its at this point you should be saying to yourself ” I want to stand out from everyone else but the stuff I make sucks should I follow the herd and just use the pages in the affiliate area or should I spend money and get somebody who is good at design?”

Myself I make pretty good splash and squeeze pages but banners not so much. I made banners for this blog the 468 x 60 and the 125 x 125 didn’t really like the way they looked so I went to Norbert Ladner who owns Unique Splash and put in an order for banners for this blog. 3 banners with the same design but in different sizes: 468 x 60, 728 x 90, 125 x 125. Two of them are done so far the 468 X 60 and the 125 X 125 and they are already in rotation. I’m not really sure what I’m going to do with the 728 x 90 maybe I’ll hang that on my wall. Anyone who went to the Sweeva Surf Parties last year will know why I went to Norbert the stuff he makes is freakin awesome. If you don’t know who Norbert Ladner is or you haven’t seen his work Go to Unigue Splash and check out his work. I think you will agree its Awesome!

I was talking to Norbert and I let him know that I would probably be coming to him for a logo design in the very near future for My blog. Of course you’ll see that on my blog when its done. While we were talking he told me that eventually he is going to be making squeeze pages. So you can bet when he does I’ll be inline for a couple. So if your serious about your business and you want to stand out from everyone else but what you make using adkreator or whatever you use sucks. I highly recommend you open your wallets and hire a designer. The designer I suggest is Norbert Ladner owner of Unigue Splash. Now here are the two banners he did for me

First thing first I want to thank Jon Olson for giving me the chance to be part of this blog. And now back to my question “So Are You Using Video Yet?” If you have I applaud You High Five and all that. If you haven’t and don’t plan to. I’m kind of curious has to why you have or will not adopt to the changes that are going on in the advertising sphere of traffic exchanges or any other kind of online advertising. It’s the age of Video  embrace it use it to your advantage. get out from behind the old way of advertising get in front of a camera and make a video. Your going to find out it’s actually fun and nobody is going to bite your head off . Hey if they do its only because they haven’t come around yet. Mark my words in a couple of years video pages are going to be the norm in traffic exchanges. So if you start now today. You will be ahead of everyone who keeps putting it off dog video camera

For me my first video I was extremely nervous making it and especially showing it. But you know what people like it. So then I was like this is cool. So I made another then another. Now all the sudden I’m not just a pitcher on a splash or squeeze page. I’m a real person. and you know what else video has really helped me with my branding. Maybe just maybe it could do the same for you

Over at my blog Scott Rohn’s Thoughts I did a couple of blog posts about doing video that could help you once you start making videos. It’s like Jon always says “Everyone should be using video in the advertising” Something like that. In one post I showed how you can get your video uploaded to You tube Super Fast. Then there is another post where I show you how to add your video to a squeeze page at adkreator and how to make it autoplay. Yes Autoplay if your video does not autoplay it will never be heard .

I’m ending this blog post knowing that there might be a few of you guys that do at least one video. To you that do I say thumbs up keep going. I also know that most of you won’t and that’s to bad

Thanks for Your Time
