I just wanted to share a free plugin I recently found and started using. It's called "Ad Inserter". It lets you add banner ads, text ads, Amazon ads, or Adsense to your website in different locations, all with the click of the button. I found it very helpful and wanted to pay it forward. If you're looking to put advertising or affiliate links on your site, it's very helpful. As a disclaimer, I am in no way affiliated with the owners of this plugin.

Here are five things I think you should have in every post. 1. A beautiful graphic - something orginal, with your logo and URL on it.2. A quote - Put it in the quotations mark that WordPress lets you do, so it is big and sticks out. Or, put it on a graphic.3. A call to action with a suggested resource at the end of your post recomending something relevant for the reader to buy.4. A relevant video, because it keeps people on your page longer.5. At least three internal links to other interesting
