Adding an affiliate link to a blog is pretty easy, so I figured I’d create a simple tutorial to show my readers how to do this in a few easy steps.
First, you need to be a member of an affiliate program.
Then you need to get your affiliate link. For this tutorial I am going to demonstrate using Shareasale, but, all affiliate programs are similar in basic structure. I obviously can’t create a tutorial for 6000 different affiliate programs though!
Step 1: Get Your Affiliate Link
Just select banners/links for any merchant your an affiliate of.
Next, select get HTML.
Next, copy your link.
Step 2: Adding Your Affiliate Link To Your Blog Post
Go into the post where you want to add a link and highlight the text you want to add your link to.
Next, click the link chain command on your WordPress post sink.
Next, input your link in the URL box. Then click “Add Link”
Now you have a fully functioning affiliate link on your blog post. Notice it is now highlighted in blue now.
Adding An Affiliate Link To An Image On Your Blog
I highly recommend adding affiliate links to images whenever you can. Below I’ll show you how to do this easily.
After adding an image to your blog post you can follow these steps.
First, click the image, then click the link chain icon from the blog post sink.
Next , add your affiliate link and click “Add Link” just like we did above.
Now you know an easy way to add an affiliate link to your WordPress blog post through text or an image.
