Adverts in Widget Displays

Adverts are branded or sponsored content and are a great way to push promotional, messaging and advertising content to your audiences.

Adverts can be either images or videos and can be added into the mix of content in Widget Displays at configurable intervals. Since each advert has its own click-thru link, when a user clicks on an Advert in a Widget Display, they are directed to the external URL to specific to that Advert.

Before adding Adverts in Widget Displays, you’ll need to have created at least one Advert. If you’re new to Buzzspark, you can also learn more about Adverts.
