Rich media ads, when done well, will definitely help you stand out from most static ads out there. If you're looking to target mobile users, then GIFs are the most widely supported. If you are targeting desktop computer users, then Flash may be the better option as it has more features.
Flash ads are worth the investment. They give you more freedom to be creative, and more ways and time to advertise your message to the public. Animated ads can give you up to 30 seconds to get your message across, which gives you more freedom than the limited space of a static ad.
For those using a mobile/tablet apple device you will need to use a computer using a browser that supports the Adobe Flash plugin. Ads links do not work due to the code being a variable name used on Google's Double Click Ad Managing Program. All ads featured were created by digital designer Johnny B Allen and are Flash based.
To rewind or start the flash ads animation over refresh the browser.
