How to Insert Affiliate Banners on a WordPress Site

Someone asked me about affiliate banners in WordPress and I thought this might be an interesting subject for many who are just starting out with this whole affiliate marketing business.

Below, you find two short videos explaining everything you need to know about how to add affiliate banners to your WordPress blog. The first video covers the very basics and the second video goes into a little more detail, showing you how to cloak the banner-links, how to make your own banners (in case none are provided) and how to add a banner to the sidebar.

Part 1

Part 2

I hope you find them useful.

All the best,

P.S.: For good measure, here’s a banner:

    It’s always good to show people how things are done. Even though many of us know how to do it, there are many who don’t, and what we forget is that not so long ago we were one of them.

    • Shane says:

      Indeed. And especially since this was a reader request, I didn’t hesitate to make this little tutorial. :)

  • Sire says:

    Excellent, it’s very important to interact with the reader and helping them to achieve their goals. You do that and you’ve gained their trust and support.

    Thanks for the info. I use to add plugins to show banners but the page coge got messy and thats not good for seo. I’ve found Word press themes like Thesis which already incorporate banners or adds in the admin pannel with a strong coding.
