If you are happy with the banners you created and feel like it's time to get them up on the websites that you plan to be marketing on, in other words, retrieve the banner(s) and use them on your own site or sending your banners with affiliates or publishers, then it's time for you to publish your banners.

Short about how BannerFlow banners work

BannerFlow banners are made in HTML5 and CSS3 which is the modern standard of websites and is displayed on websites through an embed code based on javascript that can be exported from BannerFlow. Banners' embed codes can easily be retrieved from the share sections of BannerFlow by either copying them to your clipboard or by sending them to an email.
