How do I add to or edit the scrolling image and text carousel on my website home page?

This article will guide you through how to add to or edit the scrolling carousel that appears on your website home page.

  1. From the Neto Dashboard, go to Webstore > Advertising campaigns

  2. Click Add New Campaign button and select Banner, Carousel Slide or Text Advert.

  3. Enter a start and end date for your campaign. If you want the campaign (advert) to run forever leave the date fields blank.

  4. Some themes may have multiple carousel’s or banners on the homepage, in this case it will be visible in ‘Group’. If unsure, just leave this deselected.

    Click “Save and Continue”

  5. In the Ad Builder section, you will need to add the following information:
    • Headline/Alt Text: This will be the main headline text that appears on your banner
    • Ad Text: This will be the text directly underneath the headline
    • Call to Action Link Text: Tell customers what to do next. Eg. “Click here for a bargain!”
    • Links To: Where the call to action text links to. It can be either an existing product, an external URL, or a specific page on your site.

  6. Tip for text: All text fields are optional. If you do not want to display advert header or body text you can leave the related fields blank, this will then just display your banner image.

  7. Upload an image for the banner. A tip for image uploading: Upload an image that is larger than the space provided for the image on your website, the system will resize the image to fit the space.

  8. In the Location section, you will need to identify where you want the advert to appear on your website. If you are selecting the home page then select the location: Information Page > Home and then click the “+ Add” button.

If you forget to click the “+ Add” button the banner will not appear. This is a common mistake that occurs when setting up banners. If you’ve done this successfully you should see the location appear under Information Page on the right hand side as per the image example.

You can edit adverts after they have been created by going to Webstore > Advertising campaigns.
