Following are step-by-step instructions for quickly setting up the affiliate banners and links:
Step 1: Register
Step 2: Decide how you are going to link to Scrapbook MAX!. Most people put a banner (graphic ad) on their site. You can also add a text link. See “adding a link” below for more help. The most successful affiliates write personalized reviews and recommendations of the software.
Step 3: Select a banner. First, log into the affiliate center (this is the password panel that allows you to view your stats, etc.). Select the “Link Code” button on the top. Choose a banner.
Step 4: Put the banner on your website. There are two ways to post this banner on your site–each is explained in detail below:
Paste HTML Link. Below each banner is “HTML” code. If you know how, you can copy this code and paste it where you want to within the HTML on your website. When you view the page in a browser, the code you inserted will pull the selected graphic from our website and put it on your webpage (with the associated link). A visitor can then click on the banner and it will take them to the Scrapbook MAX! site and give you credit for the referral. If you do not know much about HTML, you can try the second method.
Insert Graphic and Link. Right click on the banner (found in the “Link Code” section of the affiliate center) and select “Save As” to save it to your computer (usually in a directory where you have your website files). You can then insert this banner graphic into your website and add a link to the image (done differently according to your website program).
Adding a Link. You can find your personalized link on the main home page of the affiliate center. The first line of text says, “Your affiliate URL.” Below this is your personal link. It should look something like this:
Note: AFFILIATENAME is your unique affiliate name chosen during the signup process
You will need to copy this URL into memory, go back to your website application, and then paste it on the line when asked for the location to link your text or banner ad. You can now save and view your website page. The text link will be live, or the banner will show up, and the link will take you to Scrapbook MAX! and give you credit for the referral.
Step 5: Sit back and earn money! It’s that simple.
