The general policy is that Advertising is not allowed in skills, expect for a few exceptions.

For example, advertisements or sponsor messages that are pre-embedded in streaming services—like music, radio, podcasts, and flash briefings—are allowed because of licensing agreements and the customer expects advertisements as part of receiving such services. However, these advertisements must be baked into the audio file and not isolated in it's own file.
