This tutorial will guide you how to insert a Flash banner to Godaddy Website Builder by using the free web hosting of DropBox.
Step 1: Make Flash SWF file.
Step 2: Upload Flash SWF file to your Dropbox public folder.
Since Godaddy Website Builder v7 does not support uploading your own Flash SWF file, you need to upload the SWF file to another web hosting server.
In this tutorial, we use the free service provided by Dropbox. You need to upload the SWF file to the Public folder of your Dropbox account.

After uploading the SWF file to your Dropbox Public folder, click and select the SWF file, then click the button Copy public link, copy and save the link address. We will use the address in next step.
