Hi Alex.
I am glad to be in your network as well, because lots of WA doesn't make real sense to me. I am still struggling to find ground. Hopefully I can ask you direct questions as well.
Thank you.
Kind regards
Ulf

My first question: Do we rearly need Pretty Link and if so ,how can I know if Pretty link is working with my Theme or any theme. Maybe you can elaborate on this. Thank You

Hi, Ulf my first suggestion is to keep working through the training, try not to get bogged down along the way. So at the moment by the looks, your nemesis is pretty links from memory. phase 2 lesson 2. boot camp. The main reason that folks use like shorteners is to tidy up the way that the link presents if that makes sense. Raw links usually include your affiliate id, so using a shortener just tidies them up.

Try looking at the training By Marion Black you may find it very helpful. and to test, take your time and work through it. hope this helps you.

Thank you, Alex.
Yes my main point now is to work through the whole Bootcamp and understand all lessons. To tidy up and make the site neat can wait. There is a lot to learn here especially for me, I was never introduced to affiliate or internet marketing in such a pleasant way as I am here . Thanx for all the advice

Thank you, I have lots to blog about and use it to promote WA. But I need to get this pretty link thing sorted

:) what lesson were you referring to, they are working on the search bar at the moment, otherwise you'd find a ton of extra training in there

I haven't been using PL myself, remember you can just put in all your normal links for now and come back and do pretty links at any time

UlfStorm Premium
Thank you so much. Meaning I can carry on with my studies and forget for now about that pretty stuff.
Am I right that I can copy my affiliate link from the link page under the aeroplane or must I get it somewhere else. I actually forgot about where to find it... did not write it in my notebook

UlfStorm Premium
Sorry the lesson is bootcamp phase 2 ,lesson 2
Reply
MozMary Premium
yes for sure, not everyone uses pretty links, the links work fine as they are - same with everything in the lessons, don't let anything hold you up - though it is wise to do them step by step you can always come back to something

there are a couple of places you can get your affiliate links - yes the airplane is one, and also the ones you saw at the top of the page when you click the affiliate button
Reply
UlfStorm Premium
But clicking the affiliate button refers to the lesson or phase.
If you can go into my page pensionerwealthcreator.siterubix.com and check in the blog" why you want to change your job", in the last third paragraph I refer to a link and that specific link being a PL will not open the enrollment page.
Can I just copy/paste the main link from under the aeroplane to there after I deleted that link??
Reply
MozMary Premium
yes, you can just copy the raw link from either the airplane or the affiliate buttons on each page, they will work fine

btw couldn't get your site to open

so if the pl didn't work, need to make sure it was set up ok, I included some pics in another reply, assumed you set it up ok, maybe check that step sometime

I created some links on Pretty link and then tried to copy and paste these into my blogs, but nothing happened.
Any suggestions on what I am missing?
I listened to his video about 10 times already but when I try it,it will not make me happy

I don't know what you mean by copy/pasting the links using Pretty Links. It's a Plug-In that's already there/downloaded when you post a blog/content. Just click on the star icon when posting and enter the information and I always hit the open in a new window check box and create the link and it's there...

In the video on shortening of affiliate links, Kyle refers to the affiliate button on top of every page and says that there is our shortened link. It my case it is not present. I only get the affiliate link to the course home page or this lesson.
I loaded Pretty link but the template on Kyle's video and mine are different. Is he on Pro?
Reply
MozMary Premium
the affiliate button on the top of every page in the WA platform should only be to the course home page or the lesson

where did you want it to go?
Reply
UlfStorm Premium
I wanted to have my own link(which is somewhere on WA) Converted on WA.
After that I wanted to convert my link that brings potential customers to the enrollment page on Pretty link...that worked, but then the new link is hanging in pretty link and I cant copy and paste it to my blog.
The link I had on my post, I removed to replace it with the pretty link one but the pretty link item does not open anything.
Also how do I do it on the banners?
Reply
MozMary Premium
ok, I had a look at the video and I can certainly convert my WA link to a short pretty link, so I wonder what you may be doing with the link once the plugin has created it

This is the regular long WA link found in the affiliate button, this is to one of my blogs so then I convert it to a short 'pretty' one with the pretty links plugin

http://website4me.siterubix.com/September SiteContent Challenge

I think you go that far

so within the plugin did you know where to find the new pretty link and copy it?
and when it comes to putting it on your site do you know how to create a link on a page/post - write some text eg September SiteContent Challenge, then highlight that text, go to your insert link icon [looks like a paperclip] top of your wp page, and click that a box will open and insert the pretty link in there that you copied from your plugin, then next time you go to click on your page on that highlighted text it takes you to that link - which is the exact same as the long link but may have pretty words instead of numbers

did you do that piece ok?

so look at the pics below - basically scoop up that pretty link by copying it within the plugin [after you have created it], then insert it into your page/post [look at these images in the order 2, 1, 3, 4]
you only see the pretty link itself in the address bar..otherwise all looks the same

I checked on my editor and I have on page of the why you want to change your job-blog published and 1 unpublished and both show the initial link correct. I misspelled my site its: pensionerswealthcreator.siterubix.com.
Is there a way to dump the current published version and replace it?
And why is it that both versions in the editor dont show the banner and also dont show that PL link?
Isn't that my problem that I tried to change the link in the Sitemanager and NOT in the Site editor?

I hope things are going well. I know you are getting rolling within the training and there is ONE thing that always tends to confuse people and that is "what is my niche?".

I know, same thing happened to me when I started.

I just wanted to reach out and let you know that I am here if you ever want to run any niche "ideas" by me or you have any questions about finding your niche.

Get back to me when you get the chance! :)
