Use Ads to Raise Revenue

This month, I want to remind you that switching on Ads is the best way to raise your revenue. I’ve noticed a lot of you have switched this feature off, but I would recommend that you to turn it back on so you don’t miss out on the best revenue possibilities. To do so, simply choose “Ads” from the main menu, “Edit” ads, select the level, and select the type of banner (here you have the option to either check DF banners or, if you have your own, check “My own banners” and add your code in the space below). It’s that easy, now you just sit back and watch the money roll in.
