No one likes viewing ads. No one likes being interrupted all day with bland ads. Ads are easy to forget or overlook. With the sheer number of ads served daily, people show reluctance unless they see something that genuinely intrigues them. Everyone tends to ignore intrusive ads.
Advertisers and marketers would like to reach their target audience through different channels by creating ads or messaging. But people develop banner blindness and ignore the ads or marketing communications completely.
The daily number of ads served from different brands via different channels keeps increasing and increases banner blindness.
Banner blindness is a difficult barrier to cross. Creative marketing ideas like Interactive ads help navigate this hurdle. Creative ads cut through the clutter of bland ads and gain their targeted audience’s attention.
Here are some great examples of interactive ads.
What are interactive ads?
Interactive ads invite users to physically take action on the ad creative, reveal something in the ad, or navigate towards a specific portion of the ad.
Also, we can use interactive ads to navigate the user to a different journey or landing page.
Interactive ads require some user interaction that is hard to achieve through standard banner ads. That is why Interactive ads are a great way to communicate with consumers directly rather than showing a standard static banner.
Top 10 Interactive Ads Example
There is a wide range of interactive ads available in the online world. Below are the best examples of interactive ads.
- 360° Creative
- Scratch card
- Spin and win
- Survey Ads
- Carousel Ads
- Slider Creative

Lightbox ads are a combination of standard ads and full-screen banner ads. They work by capturing the user’s attention with a smaller ad, usually as a video or display. And once the user clicks or hovers on it. That will expand into a full-screen ad experience.
A chatbot is an AI-based tool to simulate human conversation without voice commands or text chats.
Here we are using a text chat that provides questions based on the user response. The bot will ask users a few questions regarding the user’s query that helps the bot to understand the user’s concern and eventually send the user to relevant experts or guide them to take further action
In the digital world, the users can not experience the product or service and have to decide by looking at some photos only. Here 360° ads come as a handy solution. It can give a full view of the product from all angles. Customers can view the product from all angles, and then he/she can make a more informed final purchase decision
In this example, we have created a 360° HTML viewer in the ad slot itself. That will help users to understand the product better and help them to make final decisions. When users swipe on the ad area, then they get to interact with the ad.
Scratch card is one of the highest impacting interactive ads, specifically in India. The major players in the payment world are using this format to give promotional offers to their users.
In the example, we are using the scratch card to reveal J&J’s new product line up called cotton touch.
Scratch cards can be static or animated. A Static scratchcard is a simple ad that includes two static images, first the primary banner and then the promotional banner. The Primary banner design creates an urge in customers so that he/she can scratch (wipe) and reveal the promotional offer.
The CTR and conversion rate of this kind of ad are highest compared to any other interactive format.
Spin and win
Spin and Win is a highly engaging way to grow your user base by distributing coupon codes. This method is a strong example of using the Reciprocity Principle and Reward Me value proposition. It helps to increase the CTR of the creative compared to any other type of standard banner.
