Are Rich Media the best ads you can think of?
From a client’s perspective, it’s the one that’s entertaining, informative and easy to consume. Ideally, it should be able to capture their attention without interrupting their browsing experience.
As an affiliate, however, you also want your ad to be cost-effective and measurable, so you could make calculated decisions when launching your next campaign.

What is rich media and why does it work?
Rich media is essentially an interactive ad with embedded multimedia capabilities — think video, audio, animated banners (HTML5, gifs, flash) and other advanced features that create an engaging experience for the user.
Thanks to their ability to expand, change shape, float, and even run games, these ads can completely immerse viewers in the content. And the longer users interact with your ad, the more opportunities you have to convert them.
