WA Affiliate Program

This is for the owners/admins/graphics team. Can we have a micro-button that fits in the header, please? So we can link to WA with a little thing on the right top of our pages

Hi everyone, thanks for your suggestions. What I want to do is have a small but not "tiny" image of the WA logo - to promote like "proudly hosted by WA"....just so I have an additional link there. I already have the 125x125 button as a widget. And one of the banners on my about page.

But I'm brainstorming how to promote WA myself, and this was one 'jumping off point' I thought of.

My theme DOES support images in the header, they show up on the right hand side, balanced against the site title/tagline (which is on the left).

I have considered reducing image size - or cropping part of an existing button - but wondered if there was a more 'official' one available.

Like a school emblem type of thing???

Thank you. I really like your idea. Anything linking to WA and also making our site more user friendly has to be a good idea.

Bear in mind it's not always easy to insert stuff in the header. Sidebars and footers are easy as they're 'widgetised' headers aren't.

Most themes will support a logo & a banner ad in the header. But adding a small button in there and aligning it easy isn't easy. It's something that will vary from theme to theme.

There isn't one simple solution that would work on every theme.

sounds good.

If I understand you. You need a button the same as you have only smaller. Could you just reduce the one you have and save it as a new image. I'd use adobe illustrator. If you point me in the direction of the image you have and how big you want it I'm happy to do it for you.

How small of an image are you shooting for? Would you just want the letters "WA" on it or would you want to include some additional text? There will definitely be a trade-off between the size of the button and the amount of text that you can put on it to keep it readable.

The smallest banner on the Affiliate banners page is 125 pixels square. It contains the text "Make Money TODAY!" and "Wealthy Affiliate University" above and below the WA logo. It's just barely still readable when it's reduced to 50 pixels square.

Hey Vicki!
... you talking about youtube, or your own website, or your posts etc.
Should be easy enough to do:
Just make a small image and link it - maybe I don't understand your question fully.

Haven't seen one yet, but I like the idea a lot!

Don't guess I ever saw one.

No - I mean that I want to have a small button to put in my Site header(s) that links to my WA account.
All the banners are too big - the buttons are fine for sidebars, but I need a little one to put in my header so people can click on it and get sent here.

I mean the ones on the right of my header look here http://tinyurl.com/prq9vgx

Never saw it, you mean as on your youtube channel?

Yesterday I made a blog and referenced a document that i have on my hard-drive. I don't see where to upload it to share in my PM outbox. Can anyone guide me, please?

Can't help Vicki, but looks like you have several answers.
Have a great day.............Frank

Ok, got it! Thanks for your help,all.

Okay - think I got it! I'll test it here in a sec.

I want to place a link to the .docx in a PM outbox. So I can share the file with people asking me for it.

You could upload to your website using ftp ( filezilla ) and the logins supplied in your siterubxi area. Then just place a link to it in the blog or
article

I have no experience working with Dropbox or Cloud sharing. :(

Dropbox is really easy I use it all the time

Upload it to some cloud service for file sharing and then share a link.

Think you'll have to either upload it to your site and send a link to it from there. Or upload to Dropbox, for example, and share that download link with people - which would be the better option

Hi IMc. Frank here. I noticed you were recommending "Dropbox" to Vicki. I have never used "Dropbox" or ftp. What is the difference and is one easier to use than the other?
Thanks Frank
