2. See banners as a branding tool

Users pay little attention to banners and billboards. Such advertising is rather a way to increase brand recognition than to attract people on your website. 

3. Forget about native format 

Native format is a bad idea for banners. They should be definitely identified as advertising. They should include the name of your brand, company’s logo and product image.
