Streamlining the Creation of Banner Ads for Match Games

A brand dedicated to promoting match games sought the expertise of Pagination to streamline its operations. On one hand, they recognized the need for engaging and eye-catching banners to capture the attention of their target audience. On the other hand, the manual creation of banners in various sizes, such as leaderboard, medium rectangle, and mobile-friendly formats, proved to be a time-consuming and resource-intensive endeavor for their marketing and design teams. With each match requiring unique banners, their productivity suffered, limiting their ability to focus on other crucial aspects of event promotion.

A Step-by-Step Guide
Leveraging the capabilities of Pagination to transform banner ad creation into a game-changer is a straightforward process. Here is a guide to effectively navigating this transformation. But before diving into the steps, there are two key inputs you’ll need to automate this process:
- InDesign Template, where each page represents a specific banner size. This template will serve as the foundation for the ad banners.
- Data File containing all the match information, including team names, match dates, and times. It is possible to include the file names of the images to import. This file will be used to populate the ad banners with the correct data.
Step 1: Linking the InDesign Template and Data File
The InDesign template needs to contain the necessary placeholders or “tags” to reference the data of the input data file. These tags will act as placeholders for the dynamic content that will be inserted automatically.
Step 2: Generating Banner Ads
The generation process can be triggered in the Pagination app by uploading the data file and Indesign template. Pagination will leverage the template and data to populate the banner ads with the correct text and images for each match, in all the specified banner sizes.
Step 3: Reviewing and Using the Exported Banners
The output will include folders representing each match, each containing ad banners in PNG format, designed using the template. These files are available to be downloaded and reviewed.
