Tips for designing a great Side Push

Introducing the Side Push

The SidePush offers advertisers a high impact placement which pushes the publisher page to the side. The ad auto-initiates on page load and collapses after 5 seconds; users are able to close the add at any point.

What type of ads it's great for

  • High impact, powerful creative
  • Small amount of words 
  • One strong call to action

KISS (Keep It Simple Stupid)

The Side Push is only visible for 5 seconds max. Keep your copy to one sentence and one CTA at a maximum. Too much information will overwhelm and reduce the impact of your Side Push. Copy is often hard to read large with line breaks every two/three words. 

Tips for designing a great Side Push

  • Keep your message short, punchy and easy to read
  • Keep in mind your message will be over multiple lines
  • Use dark colours to not be confused with page content (largely white)
  • If you're struggling to fit your creative within the safe area try the responsive template. The responsive template gives you more real estate to work with on larger devices.
