oh the reason to use css? here is a scenario.. let's say you have a nice big ol bg image, but you need a form

Yep, that would make sense, if you want 1 or 2 little squeeze fields, you're going to need some html/css.

Next issue: animation... which is the .gif format. If I want some minor animations like a glowing button, or flashing arrows or text (or whatever the cpv network will let me get away with) as a bigger 750x550 version of something like this:





...is it more common practice to make the whole 750x550 image as 1 big animated .gif, or do a jpeg background with the animated gif items placed via css?

(considering if you keep the animation within reason, you can get a .gif to be not much of a bigger filesize than a jpeg)

Greenie, man I think you are consuming too much effort and time for small things, keep it simple and DO you stuff, just DO IT! I have the same problem... we live in imperfect world, so don't try to make perfect things . At the end you will understand that the person who you are trying to impress with your small details is only you Forget for your point of view, look through the customer's eyes. Just saying...

True, but unlike other forms of ads, I'm totally flying blind here. If I could see what other ads look like, I would simply make my own observations, and I wouldn't be asking these questions here

I've made a bunch of jpeg ads, but I eventually want to do animated gifs (considering the importance of grabbing attention)

(for choice B this means the "click here" button is essentially a fake button - it's just another incentive to click, even though the user could click anywhere on the whole lander)
I've tried both A and B and for some reason I saw better results actually having a call to action button that was clickable over the entire image. I think people are hesitant to click a giant banner (which is what it seems like if it's just a big image that's also a link when they hover over it), but if there's an actual button they have to click that seems more reasonable.

I've also tested making the whole image a link and opening the offer landing page in a new window on hover. lol. Results weren't so great

The reason I prefer using buttons and jpg / gifs is because first off rather than to use CSS I prefer to just slice and add hrefs wherever I want and to insert code or players or whatever I can easily cut out a certain part of the jpg / psd document and fit that player or video or whatever in there nicely.

I prefer buttons, because it gives more targeted traffic, anyone will click an image for whatever reason, but not everyone will click your click here button, unless theyre intrigued. That's based off logic though, I could be completely absolutely wrong. That's my 2 cents.

I normally make one image and link it. If you've ever used heatmaps, you know that people will click all over the page. Why lose out on those clicks when you can get them to your offer?

Because theyre not as targeted and will skew your stats, IMO
