I am going to walk you through how to create in image , and a text link using your (CJ) Affiliate Link. We are going to create a post that includes the cross back tank and bloomer set for baby , that I found at old baby . So the first thing I do when I want to create a post, is I just go ahead and save the image directly off , from the Old Navy website by desktop .
Get The Image’s From (CJ) Affiliate Link
I prefer to upload images directly to my site versus using the text link , or the image link that I can get from CJ in the affiliate portion, and the reason is because an image link that’s providing by Old Navy will eventually expire , once Old Navy is no longer selling this product , they will purge it from their affiliate interface the problem with that for me as a blogger , is that I don’t want that item to suddenly disappear from my sight .
So go back and update the post perhaps , but if I’m using this image link on my site and CJ deletes , it then my site my blog post is going to have a big empty box in it , where this image once was . so for that reason I save all images and upload them directly to my site that happening , here we’re going to CJ to search for this item so we want to click over to CJ , and we are going to go to links search which is what we run now and then .
Looking For Product to get (CJ) Affiliate Link
If you’re looking for a specific slang , but in this case we are looking for a product . So we’re going to search us which that products there we’re going to type in the advertiser , who is Old Navy and the keyword . we’re just going to use bloomer set for baby to see what gets pull up .
Here you see here it’s automatically checked I highly recommend only searching your advertisers , otherwise you are going to get products that are all across CJ , and may have nothing to do with what you want to write about , and it won’t matter because if you’re not in their program , you can’t promote them anyhow .
always make sure that button is cut . now as you see here old Navy is selling a lot of baby bloomer sets right now , but we can see this is the one that we were just looking at . so if you click on it you’ll see a lot of different information comes up here , that Old Navy is sharing with you free shipping on $50 the sizing, that’s available condition is obviously new a description all of that good stuff , I normally ignore that for the most part I don’t need it for my post .
How To Get HTML Code ?
So what you want to do though is you either want to click on get code , that’s right here or you can click on the little brackets . So when you click on get code a bunch of other information shows up here website , you can choose which website you are going to be posting this information to you .
There are different things here but I don’t use them , you can hide your tracking link , you can set the link to open in a new browser , and you can encrypt the link these basically pertain to , if you’re using HTML code which I don’t use , but I will show you what HTML code is . So you can go here and obviously these are all of your rec options , if you want to use HTML code all you need to do is grab it right there .
Adding image Code To Your Post
That’s the image code go to your post and normally it starts on visual, you’re going to want to change it to text , and then just paste in that code and if you go back to visual you see just like that , there your baby bloomer set the the image of it . you can go right back to CJ and you can also grab the text link copy that, paste that again in the text editor .
Then when you go back to the visual editor , you’ll see you have the image and you have a really awkward line of text , that this is all of the information old baby, would like you to include generally people don’t talk like this . it would be really awkward if you had a blog post full of links that looked like this , so they were that’s one reason that I don’t use HTML links , they’re just long and cumbersome personally I prefer to use click URLs .
The Final Step With Addiliate Link
Basically all this is the direct link to the item you want to write about with your affiliate link to attach . So all you have to do is copy that we go back to our post , you can do it in the visual editor add your media , so that’s going to be the bloomer I already uploaded it here that that we want to add to the post . you have your title you want to have more creative alt text in that probably a better title too , but one thing you want to do here when you’re uploading the photo is in attachment display settings , make sure you add your affiliate link here .
So we’re going to go ahead and insert that into the post and obviously , there are our boomers for baby if we want to add a text link , then all we do is type out our text add our link , and again the affiliate link and save , That’s all .
