HubPages is always ahead of the curve, so it should come as no surprise that we’re about to roll out one of the coolest, niftiest, most interactive ads on the web. Check out the unit!
This display ad was created as part of an advertising partnership with ClickTurn, an online leader in dynamic display advertising.
What is particularly exciting about this ad is not its size, but rather its potential for interactivity. The demo above, for example, includes embedded YouTube videos (don’t worry- they’re not on autoplay and the sound is muted), as well as home, Facebook, and Twitter feeds. The whole thing is like a miniature website- it’s fascinating!
Another cool aspect of this ad is that it does not interrupt your text the same way some ads can – your block remains intact and nicely framed by the colorful adverts, thus giving it a glamorous magazine feel instead of a spammy internet-junkyard aftertaste.
As you can tell, I’m quite excited about this- I hope we shall start seeing these on more hubs soon!
