Being able to add a clickable image to the sidebar on your website can really come in handy.
You can create an attractive image easily using Canva and then add it to your sidebar with a link to another page on your website, a lead page or affiliate offers. If I am creating an image for my sidebar I usually make it 300 x 250, but you can play around and see what size you like.
Then I upload that image into my media library of my website.
Whenever I need to know how to code something my go to place is always w3schools but there are loads of free places you can learn to code.
Anyway here is the code for adding a clickable image, showing the items you need to replace in red:
And here you can copy and paste it from below:
<a href="DESTINATION URL">
<img src="IMAGE URL" alt="ALT TEXT" style="width:000px;height:000px;border:0;">
Just replace the destination URL with the link to the place you want to send your readers and the image URL with the url for your image in your media library.
Then add in your alt text and change the 000 width and length with your image sizes.
When you have your code ready just go to Appearances, then Widget and add in a text section to your sidebar and pop in the code and save it.
I hope you have found this helpful :)
