I hope I don't offend anyone with this.

For my next niche, I want to promote WA for online business. Since I have been here, (6 weeks now) I have checked out a lot of sites of those that have chosen to promote WA. I read a lot of blogs of those who have chosen to promote WA, and I am starting to see the same banners on every page from WA.

When I start my niche, I really want to stand out!!!

So my question is, how much of a variety will I have when choosing banners, and ads for WA?

And, do these images change, or get updated with time?

Just want to know what to look forward to.

I appreciate any and all honest responses :)

It's always good to make your own banners and be unique

Charlotte, I like your idea of creating your own banners in order to stand out. There are some good graphics people over at fiverr. Take your time, though, when choosing one.

Hope you don't mind if I do the same thing - ;-)

If you will click on the rocket ship with 300 at the top of the page, then look to the right and click on banners, you can see what is available. I applaud you for wanting to "stand out" from the crowd. I kind of think that when Google sees too many look alike sites that it can hurt rankings. We all should strive to be a bit different. Of course you don't have to use a banner at all. You could use a picture of something relating to a person studying or building a business, and make the picture a clickable link by inserting your affiliate link. You could do this by using the editor for pages or posts and instead of publishing when done, copy the html and paste in in a text widget.
I wish you great success with this.

At this time I am not promoting WA, so as an outsider this is my opinion. WA definitely has a limited amount of banners. This does not keep anyone from making their own, but, unless you pay for the photo, when you make your own your are apt to choose the best free photo and that is what I have seen a lot of -
My suggestion to you, if you really want to stand out, learn to make your own banners and pay for your photos, or take your own photos, or employ someone like Fiverr to do it for you.
WA has excellent basics, it is up to you to bring the level up to outstanding! Shine Charlotte!
You can go check out the banners long before you start your page!

Thanks for adding this as it is very important to have the rights to the photos you use. I like to take pictures myself and use my own when possible. When nothing relates I buy the rights to something online.

Sorry Charlotte, Fiverr.com is a site where you can choose from a lot of things that are done for $5.00. They offer all kinds of services, so be sure you understand what you are ordering and be as specific as you can. I have experienced nothing but good results from them, but have had a snag where I asked for a hand drawn picture and was sent a computer generated "hand drawn" picture. I was given a refund because I had requested a hand drawn picture by a human hand. I will only deal with English speaking people (or italian, because I speak the language) and prefer to keep the orders in the US, especially if it is a land delivery. You can chit chat with the person who you choose to do the work before you actually employ them to do so. Want more? PM me if I have left anything out!
