A successful digital marketing campaign is measured by how many customers click on your ad. Creating the most amount of exposure possible for your ad will increase the traffic to your site and build brand recognition. A website takeover immediately draws consumer attention to your marketing campaign and increases your overall response rates.

A site takeover is when your business message is integrated into the front page of a website. From utilizing your color scheme or logo on the site background, to having a billboard ad push content down from the top. Takeovers can even include a marketing message that floats above the content, forcing users to engage with your ad to read the story.

Site takeovers offer you a great opportunity to expose your business to every customer who visits the website during your campaign. It presents your brand in bold ways that will remain at the forefront of their mind. Even if customers pass on the message - your logo and contact information will still remain on either side of the webpage.
