Embed An Example In Your Media Kit

Customers who wish to embed the example on some "Media Kit" page on their website can do so in one of two ways:

Option 1: If you have Wordpress and the Broadstreet plugin, you can use this shortcode anywhere in any post to render the example.

[broadstreet ad="877325"]

Option 2: If you do not have Wordpress, or choose not install the Broadstreet plugin, you can embed this javascript code snippet into your post:

<div street-address="877325"></div><script>
    (function(d, s) {
    var destination = '%%CLICK_URL_ESC%%';
    var js, bjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];
    js = d.createElement(s); js.async = true;
    js.src = "//"
        + (window.broadstreet ? 'init=0' : '')
        + (destination.indexOf('CLICK_URL_ESC') >= 0
        ? '' : '&destination=' + destination);
    bjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, bjs);
    }(document, 'script'));</script>
