Looking for a new way to monetize on your blog? Be sure you are utilizing the sidebar. This widget-ready area is often overlooked by content creators. Here are three ways you can turn the sidebar area into a profitable ad placement with our ShareASale Affiliate Tools.
Banner Ads are advertisements displayed on a webpage. The advertisement is usually an image. Most Merchants provide banner ads for their affiliates to place on their site. Within the ShareASale platform, take a look at your Merchants and look at their banner ads. Be sure to select the ones that are relevant to your content and readers. Copy the code and place it on your sidebar and the banner ad is all ready to go. This is a great way to inform your readers about sales, events, and favorite brands.
