Hello everyone,
A couple of days ago, I got a request from a web hosting company that wants to advertise on my site, but they wanted a test run. So, I gave them 5 free days of advertising. Right now, it's just the second day but I'm a little bit alarmed.

Their banners get very low CTR, like .5%

Why is that? Their banners are made very well and they are placed on the top of each page.

Check out the banners and my site here and please tell me something that I can do to increase the CTR:

Banner #1: http://echodev.com/images/ads/site5/site5b.gif
Banner #2: http://echodev.com/images/ads/site5/site5b2.gif
My Site: http://echodev.com

Thanks in advance
