The marketing banner is a slide animation that will appear on a website's home page, if enabled. The slide animation will display a series of smaller HTML snippets inside it that display whatever information you like. DecoNetwork provides a un-editable template to create the slide using a series of text spaces, an image, and a link on each slide. Alternatively you may create slides using your own HTML. Marketing banners that you make as the Fulfillment Center are made available to all of your affiliate sites. The banner that is configured in the global website settings is used as the default banner for any its affiliates.
