Simply create a Static Block containing your banner then edit your theme’s local.xml and add this code:

<catalog_product_view>
<reference name="right">
<block type="cms/block" name="banner"><action method="setBlockId"><block_id>banner</block_id></action></block>
</reference>
</catalog_product_view>

Hi there, in case you want to create a banner with a link to another product consider this extension http://amasty.com/promo-banners.html. With this module you’ll be able to create promotional banners and link them to any page - either to your website or to some other one.

With the module you can also:

- Choose positions for banner display.
- Show banners based on product attributes.
- Display banners based on search terms.
- Display banners on cart, category and product pages
