Home Page Rotating banner placement 900 pixels wide by 180 pixels high (regular large banner size only)
Due to layout issues, the Rotating banner placement on the Home page that was originally sized @ 1200 px by 175 px will be downsized to the regular large banner size and priced at @ $110.00 per month for the rotating banners and $100.00 per month for the static banners.

Animations are entertaining and that is what multitudes of viewers like to see. A static advertisement can get the message across just as easily as an animated advertisement, but animations are just plain fun to watch. Whether you choose a static ad or an animated ad is totally up to you, but remember, it is the viewer who you are trying to reach.
With attractive and/or entertaining advertisements promoters generally get a better viewer statistic. Animation does take time (and effort) to design and set in motion, but the cost is worth it if that animation generates more viewers and brings more people to your shows.
*Animation is $50 per advertisement regardless of the size of the ad because, as mentioned before, they take time and effort to design and set in motion. Rotating show banners are considered animated, and will be designed using the basic banner sizes – Small, Large, and Extraordinaire.
The state page rotating banner is not considered a basic show banner.
