Heck, you don’t have to know those coding languages – HTML, PHP or CSS.
I’ll share a super simple way to get that code without even you writing a single line of code (oh, don’t worry, it’s not the copying code from other sites and pasting them on your blog) but a strategy I used in the beginning of my career when I didn’t know HTML.
Now I am well-versed though. 🙂
You can simply rent out these ad spaces and make a handsome amount every month from your blog. The price of these spaces will vary depending on the traffic and the position of your blog.
The greater traffic, the more engagement, the better content and more conversions your have on your blog, the greater is the price of the area.
These ad spaces are generally lower priced than the 300 x 250 sidebar ad space but I’ve seen that they convert well.
Not many have the budget to spend huge amount on those 300 x 250 ad spaces, they can then take advantage of these advertising spaces while you make some money.
Since my blog is built on Genesis, I know the trick I’ll share will work on any sites running on Genesis framework.
At the beginning, many people don’t think of creating those ad spaces; they blog for fun or just because they like it.
But a time comes when you need to monetize by creating few ad spaces either to keep up the recurring costs of running a blog or to make money from blogging.
So, this easy-to-do and simple tutorial is for those who can’t write HTML yet looking to create ad spaces in the in their blog.
Step-By-Step Guide to Create 125 x 125 Ad Space in your Blog Sidebar Widget
1. Log in to your WordPress admin panel.
3. Select Visual.
4. Next, click Add Media and upload the ad images you want to show in your sidebar.
6. Click Insert into Page.
If you want to create two spaces, then do the process two times.
You’ll have the ads in the sidebar of your blog.
In case you want to change the images, just upload the image to the “Uploads” folder and rename the file name of the image to the new one. For example, as you can see in the image above, the file name of one image is Ad4.gif. If you want to change the ad image, write the new file name along with the extension in place of that file name.
I Don’t want to use the “Uploads” Folder for uploading ad banners. Then what?
You can use the “images” folder to upload the images via FTP. Then change the path as given below and also rename the file name of the image.
If you upload it to uploads folder then the path will be: http://www.domainname.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/08/Ad4.gif.
To change the path to images, just change the part after uploads. So it will be:
Similarly, change the other image paths too.
