What’s this?
Float above the competition! A floating banner appears over a webpage covering a central portion of the site content, taking centre stage for a short period of time.
The benefits
Floating ads have the capability to capture the viewer’s attention due to the size and scale of this ad unit. When expanded, the floating ad takes centre stage placement on the screen, allowing full user viewing and interaction.

To take full advantage of this placement, advertisers have the liberty to exhibit their creativity for this particular ad unit, allowing interactive and concept driven ads to leave a deeper impression on viewers.

Ad Mechanism:
1. Upon page-load, the ad unit appears in its expanded form.
2. The ‘Close’ button on the expanded unit allows viewers to stop the ad at any point of the animation.
