My 1st blog

Last Update: December 28, 2018

Well I've been here at WA for a few weeks now and if I told you l'm doing great at this I'd be lying. What I can say is that I do feel that I am improving but there is still so much that I don't know and it drives me crazy. My niche is cosmetics/makeup so it is crucial that I get links from Amazon on to my pages (I became an affiliate) but I haven't figured out how that works so that is quite a bit frustrating. I am proud of myself for the post that I have written, who knew I could write. But I am passionate about makeup so it does make writing about it that much easier. My goal are to keep at it. I'm not going to give up. I'm going to figure out how to transfer pictures of Amazon makeup so that I can start making some money if it kills me. If anyone reads this and can offer any sort of help, I'm all ears. Besides that, I have enjoyed myself here at WA. I've met some really nice people which makes the whole process a little less boring if you will. I am looking forward to the future to see what I can actually do. I do believe the more I learn the better I am going to get but at times when I get stuck it really really becomes frustrating and it makes me doubt myself. Like I'm I going to be good at this, should I even be doing this? But then I have to remind myself that this IS what I want to do. I do want to work online and own my own websites. I am physically disabled and this is the best way for me to earn income. I do receive disability payments, so does my son, but I want to provide him with a better life, I mean who knows? What if my websites really do become successful enough to where I won't need disability. That is my ultimate goal, is to become financially independent. But for now it's baby steps. Kyle says give it a year. I'm a very impatient person, but I'll try. He's the one that is successful at this. Well if you took the time to read this I thank you, and here's to our success!

Okay, let's see if I can explain this well enough. First of all, I assume that you are set up as an Amazon associate already, so you can get affiliate links.
Once you are an affiliate,at the top of the Amazon page you will see a long box with the word "site stripe" on the left-hand side. Click on that yellow site stripe, and it will take you to your affiliate login. Once you are logged in, drop down to the bar where it says to enter a keyword or product number. Put down the name of the product you seek and hit "go". Once the products come up, select the one you want. To the right hand side it will say "get link." Click on that. It will take you to the code for the links. For the image link, highlight the code and copy, go back to your website, go to the "text" setting at top, and paste. Now go to visual, and you should see your product. You can align it where you want -- left, center, or right -- same as you do with other images. Then you can put your product information. If you want to link the product name also, go back to the Amazon page where you got the first link, and copy the text link. Go to your page; you can now highlight the name of the product and go to the top of the page and click the "link" symbol. That will open a bar where you can paste the text link. Click on the little cog to the right of the bar, and when it opens,click on "open in new tab." Update. Update the whole page (I always do that just to make sure everything is going to stay in place) and then you are done. Go to "preview changes" and look at your item. Hover your curser over the places where you put the links and the info should show up at the bottom of your page.

I hope you can understand my explanation, and that it helps. If you are still confused, ask. Do not try to do "text and image." We aren't set up for that one. Do one and then the other. I always put the image in first, type what I want to say next to it, and go back and get the text link.

Hi there Nicole, welcome to the WA community! I would not worry too much as you are clearly passionate about what you do and you write well. Put all that into your content and it will speak volumes to your intended audience. It does take time to build your business, but will be worth it in the long term.
All the best and keep up the good work. Cass
