If you select the third option, "I want to choose the banners that appear on my site", you will be able to select and organize the banners that will be displayed on your site. Then, drag and drop banners from the Available Banners area into the Banner Loader.
- Note: Banners may take up to 10 minutes to display on your site once added to the Banner Loader.
Large and Small Banners
After selecting "I want to choose the banners that appear on my site" you have the option to choose a Large Banner or a Small Banner.

After you've selected whether or not you want to display a large banner or a smaller banner, and you don't have any banners of your own, you can select and/or rearrange the banners available.
You will see the following options:
- Company Banners
- Personal Shared Banners
- Personal Banners
