Ads and Banners

You can add Hero Banners and Ads to your community to link to content and events within Gradual, or any external URL or website. 

Hero Banners appear at the top of the home page, while Ads appear on the right hand side of the Content & Forum pages. Add as many banners or ads as you’d like and they’ll rotate automatically to catch your members’ attention and drive traffic and engagement.
