This recipe shows you how to place an ad on a Ghost site and newsletter using AdPlugg. This recipe just adds a single ad but you can use it to add any number of ads, you can also combine it with other recipes, etc. The instructions here will work on both managed and self-hosted Ghost sites. The recipe uses an Email Ad Tag which will work both on your Ghost website and in your Ghost newsletters.
Note that Email Ads and Email Ad Tags are part of the AdPlugg Business Plan. You'll need to be on the AdPlugg Business Plan, or be on a Custom Plan that has the Email Ads feature, in order to have access to use the Email Ad Tags described in these instructions.
Also note that you can include ads on your Ghost website (but not your newsletters) using the standard tags that are included in AdPlugg's Free and Pro plans. A recipe describing how to set this up is available here.
First, we need to create an AdPlugg Ad.
Now we are going to add the AdPlugg Ad Tag to one of your Ghost Posts. We are going to do it using a Ghost HTML card.
Now, we are going to save the Ad Tag as a Ghost Snippet so that we can easily use it in other Posts.
If you don't expect to use this particular Ad on other posts, you can skip this step.
Your snippet will now be available from the bottom of the cards list when you press the (+) button from the Post editor.
Now, we'll test the Post and our Ad to make sure that it looks right.
When you are ready, Publish the post!
Repeat the above to add more Ads to your site and newsletters.
