Does anyone know the average cost of a flash based web ad, like those skyscraper ads with the flash animation. Any help would be great.
Thanks in advance,
if you are looking to get these built you need to know a few things. If you are using this on your own site then more or less any flash savvy person can make you an ad and provide an SWF .
If you are wanting to get other sites to display your flash ads then the likelyhood is that you will need to have your ads served by an ad serving company such as EyeBlaster or TangoZebra (now called, Double Click)
So to answer your question, if you want it for your own site, then quite cheap, for instance i can build you one for around £250 depending on complexity etc, if you require it to go through other sites then i can build you one for around £250 BUT you have got to realise it will cost you more as you will need to pay the ad serving company, usually on a ‘per click’ basis and then you may have to pay the website itself for hosting your banner.
Some ad campaigns can run into thousands.
Hope this helped.
Depends strongly on the length and even more on the difficulty of the animation. Also If you want some kind of user interaction (I mean more than just clicking to visit your website, but something like an object that follows your mouse or even a videoplayer inside the ad) that will make the whole thing a lot more expensive.
Prices could easily range from $50 – $500 or more.
Personally I do only complex banners, it’s more interesting for me (I hate doing animation), so I would say that price range may vary from 100EUR to 500EUR
