This is an ad for free 5 days download for a book. The aim is to get visitors to the site where the ad will sit in the side bar, to click the ad. The website on which the ad will sit is a social network site for people going alcohol free (called http://www.soberistas.com). I need visitors to the site to notice the ad,, realise that it is clickable and click to buy or click to watch a video.
The book is already published so those graphics of the book cover are done and i will provide that image. I will also provide a head shot of the author. The ad needs to ensure the book design stands out, a head shot of the author stands out and there are a few words to be associated with the images. The ad is a side bar ad for a third party website. It needs to be 250px x 250px in a jpeg or gif format with the associated link. We are doing a 2 sided ad with a hyperlink on each side. So it will need to be 125px x 250px for both sides. The two sides needs to look as much as possible like they are joined ads as they are only split to allow for two different links. You can see examples of the split ads are they are already on the third party website, all are very ugly.I have attached a screenshot of the website so you can see two example of current (ugly!) ads, a copy of the book cover and a head shot of the author.
The ad needs to say
AMAZON BEST SELLER 5 STARS

On the left half of the ad goes the book image and the words
"Powerful Little Manual"
"Made Me Feel Normal"
On the right hand side of the ad is the author image plus the words "Author Talks Here"
This will be a series of ads as we have this ad spot permanently. I want to create a n ad which will be more beautiful than the competition. The book cover is very nice.
I am looking to build a brand here in terms of the style of my ads
