1.Use Notification Bar
Do you notice a bar floating at the top of this blog ? .That is notification bar .I am using Easy Heads UP Bar for the same . I can show something important to my readers, a post or offers through this notification bar . This really increases my affiliate revenue .
Easy Heads UP bar is a free WordPress plugin which allows us to create notification bar at the top of WordPress website with a linked call to action. You can fix a start date and end date of the notification .
Easy Heads UP Bar allows you to create unlimited notification bars . If you have multiple bars they will show randomly.You can limit the bar to just the Home Page, Interior Pages or they can be displayed on all pages.
There is another fabulous plugin called FooBar , which has more customization options. FooBar allows you to apply conditional logic and create a top and bottom bar. The best and most powerful feature of Foobar is Twitter and RSS Feed Integration .
