Where Banner Ads Appear

Banner ads appear at the bottom of the navigation menu. Your users will see a sponsor banner every time they tap the menu icon to explore the content in your guide.


In this example, there are two banner ads - one for Guidebook and one for Google.

How to Add a Banner Ad

In the Guidebook Builder, open the guide you are working on. From the guide-building screen, look in the bottom-left corner for the button to access Banner Ads. 

 Click this button.

Then click the blue "New banner ad" button. 


  1. Banner Image: Your banner image should be a 600 pixels wide, 110 pixels tall, .PNG file. Click "Select File" to upload your image from your computer.
  2. Sponsor Name: Type the name of the sponsor here.
  3. Website URL: Type the web address for your sponsor here. 
  4. Enabled: If enabled, your banner ad will appear in the guide. If disabled, it will not appear.
  5. Direct to URL: If this toggle is enabled, users will tap your banner and go straight to the website provided. If this toggle is disabled, users will tap your banner and see the Description text you enter. 
    • Description: Add paragraphs of text about your sponsor here. The web address URL will appear below the Description text.
  6. Duration (required): Choose between 5, 10, 20, or 30 seconds for each sponsor banner to be displayed before it rotates. 
    • Note: Your banner ads will appear in a random order. However, you can use the Duration setting to make some sponsor banners appear for longer than others.
