Here’s a list of our other posts from the Bannersnack and Flipsnack blogs in case you missed them:

“Today we have a great interview with the creator of the banner ad – Joe McCambley, co-founder of The Wonderfactory, about his professional life, the tools he uses, resources he recommends and, of course…banner ads.”

 ”Today the most discussed type of display advertising is social media advertising, right? Well… if you think about it, Facebook promoted posts still count as display advertising. The only difference is that they are displayed on Facebook inventory. And it’s the same with Twitter, Linkedin, Pinterest and so on.”

How to choose the right premium subscription for you

March 25th, 2015

Today we’re going to talk about the different premium subscriptions you can purchase on our websites and how to choose the one that best suits your needs.

Let’s say you discovered Bannersnack and you would like to have the watermark removed or the option to download your banners in JPG/PNG and SWF formats as well. For that, you need a premium subscription. So you click on the Go Premium button and you have 3 options:
Bannersnack options

Now you’re wondering which of the three options is best suited for your needs.

  • The first one, Banner Pro, gives you premium access to Bannersnack only.
  • Snack VIP gives you premium access to Bannersnack & our other apps, so it might be a good idea to head over to our main website where you can find a list of all our apps and check them out, see if you might use anything else besides our banner creator. In case you are interested in some of our other apps, the Snack VIP is the right choice for you.
  • Snack Business is similar to Snack VIP, meaning you will get access to all of our apps, but you will get more daily views, so if you plan on using our embed code to implement your widgets on your website and your website gets a lot of daily traffic you might consider opting for the Business plan.

Another thing you should consider is going for a yearly subscription instead of a monthly one, because it’s more cost-effective. Additionally, you get 100$ Ad campaigns bonus for Snack VIP yearly and for the Snack Business yearly you get 200$ Ad campaign bonus which you can use to create an advertising campaign with us.

In case you decide you only need the Banner Pro subscription right now and Upgrade later don’t worry, we got you covered!

How to embed your Snacktools widgets in Squarespace

March 19th, 2015

After watching this hilarious SuperBowl ad you decided to use Squarespace to build your website and now you are wondering how you can place your beautiful slideshow or flipbook on that website.
Today I’m going to show you how easy it is to do just that.

First you need to get the embed code for your widget.

After that you need to go to your Squarespace website, select and edit the page where you want the widget to show up, click on the little bubble that brings out the add content block menu and click  on the Embed button.

Next the edit embed data box will show up in the lower right corner of your screen. Here you will notice that you can just add an URL and Squarespace will try to display the content for you. However this is not where you add the actual embed code we provide, instead what you need to do is click on the little button on the right side of the URL field.

This is where you add your embed code.

3 (tested and tried) ways to get more website visitors

March 13th, 2015

There are many strategies you can use to get more people to visit your website, yet some people still use spam as a strategy, when there are better alternatives which are much more effective and people don’t hate them. Spam is for losers, really. Below you will find 3 fair, solid strategies guaranteed to make your website more popular:

1. Optimize your content

To optimize the content you need to know a little bit of SEO, but luckily, you don’t need to be an expert to write good content that will rank high in Google. If you don’t have a blog already, start one now and write original content that your target audience might find helpful. Focus on optimizing your website first, then try other ways to expand your audience.

2. Share it on social media

It’s always a good idea to present your articles on social websites, where your followers, fans and friends will see it. But you shouldn’t think these are the only people who will see your content. If you use smart hashtags and write interesting post descriptions or use images, you will reach more people than you think.

3. Advertising

Advertising is another effective way to reach a wider audience. Since we’re talking advertising, we must mention Bannersnack, our 3-in-1 advertising tool: banner maker app, professional custom banner design and the friendliest campaign tool you can image. You need zero advertising knowledge to run successful campaigns, because you get professional advice and all your campaigns are supervised by a team of BannerSnack advertising experts.

How to insert links and descriptions in your photo slideshow

February 25th, 2015

Sometimes when we make photo slideshows we need to use links in the slideshow. That is ok, because with Photosnack, this is super easy. You can use a different link for each photo and you can add links and descriptions on some of your slides, while leaving the other slides empty.

Go to PhotoSnack and upload your images (JPG, GIF or PNG formats), or import them from Facebook, Instagram, Flickr, Picasa, Photobucket and SmugMug. Go to Edit and then “Edit photos”.

You can enter a title, a description and a link for each photo, but you can leave any of these blank. Go to the next step and check the settings. Make sure you “show image info” (find this option under Other settings).

There are no other instructions! Publish and share your slideshow!

By the way, if you just post the link on Facebook, the slideshow will play directly there, no need to embed.
