How to Add Affiliate Links To A Blog Post

Video I’m going to show you how to add links to your blog post affiliate links to your blog post so I’m actually going to give you a couple of options to do this all right so I’m sitting here doing a blog this morning I like to show real deal examples whenever I can and I am on WordPress and I am on Gutenberg you can see a link in this video for more information on wordpress now I’m doing a blog on my lifestyle blog about I lift surgery blepharoplasty okay so I’ve done a couple of things here that I think are important that you should note one I am writing part of the story myself and as another part I actually ordered content to be written so here I’ve got a little intro that says you know this is what started my journey and then I’ve got what is blepharoplasty why is it done how is it done then I’ve got this little portion in the middle that has my experience okay now the reason I did this is because I can’t talk about all things blepharoplasty I’m not a plastic surgeon I don’t really know how to explain some of those things in detail so I had that blog that portion written now if you look up here what you can see is I’m already at third almost 3500 words if I had just told my little story it would have been much shorter but I want to give them options now if I click preview what you’re gonna be able to see is there is a table of contents and and I have not got this all cleaned up yet but there’s a table of contents it’s actually going to allow the user to click down to what part they want so if they just want to read about my experience they can jump right down and they can read my story then they can decide if they want more than that now what you’ll see in this blog post is links see where these blue are links these are going to guide the user either to another area on my website that has information or to another website externally like in this example I say I credit the keto diet for that and I actually linked them to my Aikido website my niche website or they’re going to be taken to an affiliate item okay so here’s an example I had to sleep elevated for a few weeks I bought a bed wedge and pillow set and it was fabulous now watch what happens when they click on bed wedge and pillow set okay in my case I have WooCommerce installed on my website which is so easy love it and I am able to then we have the product right here on my website I can have related products but when they click on it they either go to Amazon or they go to wherever my affiliate relationship with is so in this particular case V on Amazon they’re gonna click here and they’re gonna go to my to Amazon and they’ll be able to shop there and I would earn income via Amazon now if I did not have whoot commerce set up I would send them directly to an Amazon link so let me show you how this works so here I have I used gauze pads and saline solution when I rested these were suggested by friend not my doctor now I’m gonna add another portion my doctor suggested these specific eye drops for the day and for night they were a life saver and presented prevented dry eyes okay so now I want to give them these specific eye drops that I want them to use okay so I’m gonna go over to Amazon and I’m going to type in here eyedrops now I know mine were specifically I could go to my orders and pulmo specifically but I know one was a nighttime okay here’s one I use at night okay so here I have sight stripe installed for my amazon associates account so that I can quick grab text links okay so if I wanted to I could just go to text and I can take this link now and I can send that user right to Amazon okay so ease that is or if I’m using WooCommerce like in this case I’ll show you how it works so my doctor suggested specific eyedrops for the day so let me grab the daytime ones here they are we want the dead gel okay one fluid ounce perfect okay so I’m gonna grab this in this particular case I don’t need the sight stripe URL I’m just gonna take the one at taut because we’re gonna use spreader so spreader is an app that allows me to import items from Amazon what I love about spreader and and WooCommerce is that with spreader all of the pricing is going to be updated dynamically automatically from Amazon which keeps me compliant with Amazon all right and because it’s through the Amazon API I’m able to use the basic import details and it just keeps everything super clean so watch this I’m now going to go to the product and what we have to be careful of is you can’t use name brands in your URL a lot of people get in trouble for this so I usually will edit it that out first I’m going to put in the right category so in my case I have cosmetic surgery and I have recovery so let me add eyedrops in the recovery add new category okay in my case I like to just keep this basic down here so I’m gonna clean this up just a little bit the way I like it and then I’m going to take the name brand out of the URL because I don’t want to get in trouble for any if there were any uh it may not be any problem at all but if you look at the affiliate terms a lot of these brands will say cannot use their name in the URL so I like to get rid of it as the best practice so lubricant i jealous aveer perfect okay now watch what happened see how simple this was like stupid simple hit update and then I’m gonna show you what it looks like so we’ll go back to the blog and here we say specific eye drops for the day I’m gonna click link and now this products gonna show up here as a suggested product there it is okay see that now let’s open it so you can see what it looks like when somebody clicks there there it is so you’ve got your couple of options there you can link them directly to Amazon or you can create a product you also to take your Amazon Associates create an ad and you could just put a grid underneath that so it would look like this we go over to Amazon let’s go ahead and go over to our Amazon Associates account and we’re gonna go create a little small custom search ad so watch this so I’m going to go to product linking native shopping ads and then I want to create a custom ad this is because I want to specifically say what I want to go in this grid and then we’re gonna choose a strip and I’m gonna do the gentle tears did I say that right let me look hold on let me look what they’re called genteel okay so then I’m gonna add I want that one that one that one yep that’s it so then I’m just gonna take that code go back over to my blog okay now if I want if I’m using Gutenberg this is super easy go to add a content block grab your eighth custom HTML paste that code right there and click preview tada see see how easy this is guys this is such a big big way to build your affiliate income is by telling stories of real-life things that you deal with they’re the reason I started this specific niche website for women in their midlife time of their life age 40 to 70 ish is because they that’s who I am I’m a 47 year old midlife woman and so I’m talking about plastic surgery and you know menopause and and beauty and all the things that we deal with in this age group so it’s easy for me to tell stories so some of my niche websites may not be specifically things that I do every day but this one is and it allows me to really get into telling a story and including links but this is how you include links in your blog website this is just one of many many ways my name is Lori Ballen and i earn six figures a year just in affiliate income .
