Display ads help to increase brand awareness by getting images out to viewers when they are surfing the web.

Recent studies have shown that these types of ads can help increase awareness of your brand by up to 63 percent.

Even if users do not click on the ads, they still end up having a positive impact on sales building familiarity with consumers. Seeing ads wherever they visit on the web helps them to feel familiar and loyal to your brand.

By increasing awareness of your brand through banner advertising, you can increase both online and offline sales without any actions needed from the user beyond just seeing your ad on sites they visit on a regular basis.

3. Increased offline sales

Current research shows that display ads can increase offline sales by as much as 43 percent. When visiting a store, consumers will often search out products that are familiar to them. When consumers see something online, they are much more likely to recognize it offline while shopping.
