I really must refer to Colorburned post here – He did a great job by bringing up so many companies and idea, which helped me to directly find related companies, which could sponsor my website too. It’s been a while and now I wanted to take a deep research about current companies, which use and actually buy those advertisement banner places thereby supporting design community in return helping to build good page rank and actually get very targeted design related clients. I listed here all the companies I’ve found advertising on graphic design, web design, blogging related blogs, showcase sites like mine is. Now after research I must say I was surprised, browsing through all those blogs daily I didn’t checked those sites, but now I found many good softwares, services I would really love to try myself! Not always the best stuff available is for free and really what did I see was very reasonable prices for several really good services.

Also it was interesting research which kind of banners different companies use, what design and what did they put into those banners – what kind of text, images, animation. If You are designer yourself you’ll understand me – I don’t see advertisements in real life – I look at composition, idea, color scale, accent distribution and things like that. Here I did the same, because I believe every banner is created by professional designer and here you have to manipulate with limited space to attach emerging customers, clients.

I also added short description from their own sites so you could know what company behind that banner is offering. And short tip – if you have good traffic and good price, but have no advertisers, I strongly recommend you writing these companies explaining why they should choose to advertise there, tell them what your blog is about and show them your stats. I am sure you’ll get

To end this article I wanted to share my thoughts and have a little question to my readers.

Here it goes..

I am considering in future to buy and test such services I’ve listed here and give honest reviews how did those tools, companies work and what kind of problems I interfaced. I believe such help with project management tools, job boards, automated softwares and good psd to xhtml service could really ease and help to automate web development, designing, printing and project management process.

Now I just want to ask – do you want to see that kind of articles here?? Because really I’ll try to do my best to satisfy my readers at the first place, and it’s your call. I will be very pleased if you could spare some time to give honest answer here.

Thanks for Your time!
