In order to monetize your website through affiliate programs, you are going to need to understand how to properly add affiliate links.

In this video I am going to walk you through the process of adding affiliate links (in my example, WA affiliate links) to both textual content and image based content within SiteContent, as well as Wordpress.

The process is very simple once you understand it and after going through this video, you are going to have a sound understanding of the affiliate link creation process.

If you do have any questions or comments about affiliate links, please leave them below and I will be more than happy to give you a hand.

As usual, Kyle's video is succinct and to the point. Thanks Kyle.
I have some extra information and a question.
The extra information is that Amazon has introduced a Wordpress plugin to simplify the process of keeping up with product details. Here is their blurb:
"It connects to our real-time Product Advertising API, which means that all information found in the Link Builder is current and accurate including prices, images, and product availability. Previously one needed to have programming knowledge to be able to tap into the power of the Product Advertising API, but with the Link Builder plugin the heavy lifting’s already been done."

That looks really powerful, and a timesaver.

My question is: Has anybody on here used the plugin, or added their own interface (requires programming experience, which I have) to access the Amazon API? If so, what is your opinion about using them as opposed to manually keeping track of of the continued accuracy of your associate links?

Thanks,

Bill

I haven't done that, but I bet others here have. Try asking that question in the query bar at the top of the page. You may find blogs and/or tutorials on the subject.

Great video, short and sweet and packed with great info. It looks so easy, I am off to add mine now.
Thank you, Kyle.

I do have a question, though, say you add a link to a product and several months down the road Amazon or some other Affiliate no longer stocks that item, will they notify you so that you can either change the existing link or delete?
Also, which would be better, add a different Affiliate or delete the link completely?

Thanks in advance, Kyle.

Hi Tina,
You do have a good question. My simple answer would be to be on top of your products links. You should follow up on your links every so often to make certain that they still promote the product/service you want to provide so that when someone clicks on the link it does bring them where you want them to go. As far as getting notified by the affiliate, I believe it would depend on them. Maybe you would get notified but why take any chances? You are the one who is promoting on your website/blog, so I say click on them once in while and check it out. Hope this help. :-)

I like that a lot D. Thanks for the answer and the advice, I will make it a point to click on them every couple weeks to ensure that people are getting where I want them to go.

Have a great and prosperous WA day.

Please, can anybody tell WHERE to add a link from amazon on my website if I promote WA program? I mean I have first to review the product in order to add the link. But the products from amazon have nothing to do with my niche!

Please what should I do?

Thanks in advance!
Cheers,

Hi Balsam,
On my site that I promote WA, I do not promote Amazon products.

The reviews that they are talking about for the "promote WA site" are similar other online things to WA which maybe you or people have tried without or with success and comparing them to WA and then asking that they read your review of WA and that is what you are promoting in that site. WA.

Refer to my site and check out the Reviews tab to see what I mean: https://ultimatesuccessunlimited.com/

Amazon products are for other niche sites like for example painting, golf, pets, and so on.

I hope this is helpful to you to differentiate the two. WA site is promoting WA. Other sites can have Amazon.

Sincerely,
Your friend,
Gina

Hi Gina!

Many thanks for your kind response!

Please, according to your message, it would be better for me to JUST concentrate on the trainings under AFFILIATE BOOTCAMP Courses and not to do anything from ONLINE ENTREPRENEUR CERTIFICATION Courses. I thought I should make both in parallel!

Yes, your answers are always very helpful!

Wishing you a great day!

Cheers,
Balsam

Hi again,
If you are promoting WA There are a bunch of banners and your affiliate link in the section called "$ WA Affiliate Program" on the left side menu.

Hi!

I just paid a short visit to your website ultimatesuccessunlimited.com It is wonderful! I says everything that I want to share with others also. I have a burning question...how do I promote an 'original' website when you have already done so. I mean your site is more than excellent it truly is awesome. I could never hope to create something so complete!

Thank you for sharing!

Thanks Kyle, the training is superb, please I was looking to stealth my links.

For example instead of my traditional HopLink appearing like this…

http://affiliate.vendor.hop.clickbank.net

the link should look something like this…

http://www.yourwebsite.com/link/
Please can I get a guide to do this?

Thank you.
