Illuminate Your Online Store
Do you have an online store? Banners can be your virtual posters. Picture this: you're launching a trendy clothing collection. Use a banner to feature it prominently on every page of your site. And how about offering a special discount? Create a dynamic banner to draw customers to your promotion.
Design your banner using your preferred design tools. If graphic design isn't your forte, you can use various online services like canva.com.
From the banner manager, create your space and then upload your image.
Publish the banner module by selecting your creation, and assign it to a position that ensures perfect visibility.
Congratulations, you're done!
Showcase Your Influencer Blog
If you're an influential blogger, banners are your virtual assistants. Imagine you're talking about travel. Create a banner to promote your latest article on the top destinations, the best places, and even Hawaii's finest tiki bar! At a glance, your readers will be eager to explore the world based on your recommendations.
Tip: Use keywords to assign banners according to your thematic articles. Combine this with the related articles module to offer multiple navigation options. Lastly, don't forget to utilize tags to maximize result
Energize Your Association Website
Managing an association website can be challenging. Banners simplify things for you. Hosting an event? Use a banner to thank your sponsors and provide them with prominent visibility, encouraging their participation. It's an effective way to show gratitude while motivating visitors to get involved.
But that's not all! The Banner Manager doesn't just capture attention; it also measures impact. You can track views and clicks for each banner. This helps you understand what works best and fine-tune your strategy accordingly.
And encourage your sponsors to renew their participation next year.
The Banner Module
Displaying banners is just as straightforward. Use the banner module to place your creations where visitors can't miss them. You have the freedom to customize every aspect, from display duration to banner category.
Tip: Use the shortcode to embed the module into your articles (117 being the module id). This way, the display becomes more subtle.
Using the API
Another powerful feature of Joomla 4's Banner Manager is its API, which enables remote management of functionalities. Imagine you have multiple travel websites, and you want to automatically display a promotional banner for a specific destination each month. You can utilize the API to control and accomplish this task without having to log in to the administration of each site.
