The main event for tonight… Intellibanners v.s. Banner Keyring !
Intellibanners sure introduced a great concept that will be a huge help to traffic exchange enthusiasts, a banner rotator. It was certainly a fantastic idea, however Banner Keyring also just went live and are now in an early battle for banner rotator supremacy. A little controversy already seems to be brewing at the NetMarketingForum, with the owner of Intellibanners , Josh Abbott, arguing that Banner Keyring "lacks creativity." You can see the thread at:
I decided to test drive both side by side to see which I thought was better for the customer, you and me!
First, both are nearly identical with their services. Both offer a banner rotator service that allows you to add one simple image and link into all of your traffic exchanges. Then you can manage which banners show at their website from your banner rotator account. Both offer statistics so you can see how well your campaigns run.
The big catch with Intellibanners is that as a free member, 80% of your banner impressions are yours, and 20% goes to upgraded members. You’ll also get to run 3 campaigns with 10 banners each. You can also enter in how often you want each banner to display. If you upgrade at $9.99 / month, 100% of the impressions are yours, plus you’ll get some extra from free members. You’ll also enjoy 10 campaigns with 50 banners each.
Banner Keyring on the other hand, gives all members 100% of their banner impressions. As a free member, you get 3 campaigns with 5 banners each. You don’t get to add as many banners as a free member, but you get 100% of your impressions, which isn’t too bad at all. However you can’t set how often each banner displays. By upgrading at $9.99 / month, you get unlimited campaigns and banners, source-by-source statistics, and can now set the frequency that each banner appears.
As you can see, each has their own benefits. Me personally, I’ll be going with Banner Keyring . I just think it’s a great service even as a free member, and if you need more you can certainly upgrade. Most importantly is that I’m not giving away free impressions to others, every display is mine.
Although you can upgrade at Intellibanners and get extra impressions from free members, I question how many free members will be actively using their service since Banner Keyring gives them 100% of the banner displays. That greatly diminishes the value of the Intellibanners upgrade.
Hopefully that gives you some insight into my thinking behind choosing Banner Keyring , but be sure to look at both so that you can make your own decision!
