    Upload the plugin: to Addons/Sourcemod/Plugins
    Upload the txt file: to Addons/Sourcemod/cfg

    like Kript said,


    "advertisements.txt" goes in: addons/sourcemod/configs
    "advertisements.smx" goes in: addons/sourcemod/plugins

    and add this to your server.cfg:

    sm_advertisements_enabled 1
    sm_advertisements_file "advertisements.txt"
    sm_advertisements_interval 300

    (dont forget to edit advertisements.txt to your wants)

    explanation:

    sm_advertisements_enabled (0/1, def 1)
    Enable/disable displaying advertisements.

    sm_advertisements_file (def "advertisements.txt")
    File to read the advertisements from. Useful if you're running multiple servers from one installation, and want to use different advertisements per server.

    sm_advertisements_interval (def 30)
    Amount of seconds between advertisements.
