Downloaded, installed, and created a custom sidebar. Then using the Black TinyMCE text widget I inserted images,text and buttons as content. The sidebar works like a champ.
Genesis Simple Sidebars makes life much easier because you can build a custom side bar and assign it at the page/post level.
Just wish I had discovered this plugin earlier

Solved my problem

I needed to display different subscribe forms in the side bar depending upon which pages of the site the visitor was viewing. I used this plugin to solve that problem quickly and easily. (Like, within 5 minutes.)

Kudos to the plugin developers!

Great for sites with content people needing this flexibility

The easy ability for a content expert, without developer assistance, to be able to add a new section with its own custom sidebar is excellent. We use this on *many* sites. Thank you!
