Easy Banner Set Up

Whether your advertising banner is an image with a link or uses HTML/JavaScript code, setting up banners is designed to be easy and intuitive in the familiar WordPress setting.

Easy Banner Placement

Once defined, banners can be used within post and page content areas simply using shortcodes or within sidebars and other widgetised areas using the widget provided.

If you are a web developer (or comfortable using PHP) and there are inaccessible areas of the theme where you want to enable banners that you or your clients can amend as and when they need, you can use the provided PHP functions to embed them.

Reporting

The plugin provides daily performance graphs of the impressions, clicks and click through ratios (CTRs) for all banners collectively or for individual banners, as well as for all ad blocks collectively or for individual ad blocks for specific dates over the last year. This allows testing the effectiveness of the banner image, positioning and scheduling. Where the banner is for an advertising customer, this also allows effective feedback.

Campaign Start & End Dates

If a banner is part of an advertising campaign and needs to run between specific dates, then these can be set up also.

Weekly Schedule

If you or your advertising customers are specific about weekly scheduling and you need to refine exactly when a banner is displayed, this can be added very quickly.

Grouping into Blocks

Ad blocks allow for grouping ad banners together using a simple drag & drop interface. Ad blocks serve two functions. On the one hand, they allow ad banners to be displayed together. On the other hand, if you have an advertising customer with multiple ad banners, ad blocks allow for the ad banners to be reported on as a unit.
