A banner is a single, displayable advertisement of a specific size.
To add a new web banner, press the ‘New Banner’ button inside the campaign of your choice. There you will see a list of banner types that can be made. There are a few attributes that are essential to create a banner:
- Title: allows you to identify and find your banner within Airserve.
- Measurements: the dimensions of your banner (width and height) in pixels.
Creating a banner
Airserve allows you to upload banners from various different sources, listed below.
Upload a zipped folder containing all the necessary files for the banner to function correctly. This is the default export format of many design programs (Hype, Google Web Designer, etc.). The only requirement is that the main HTML document needs to be located in the root folder.

Banner from file
Upload a source html file for the banner and any number of additional assets required.
Single image banner
If using a single image for your advertisement, Airserve will wrap the image with the necessary HTML code. All you need to do is upload the image of your choice and type the URL for the landing page.
Creating a single image banner
Insert a URL for a web banner hosted elsewhere and it will be ready for use in Airserve.
Upload the video file(s). Add an optional video poster as a fallback for when the video is not automatically played, as well as an optional clickthrough link.
