Adding Affiliate Links to Your Ebooks = Big $$By
The first thing to do is to sign up for all the affiliate programs you like. Signing up for an affiliate program is usually easy. The affiliate program you sign up for will email you your user ID and Password and give you instructions on how to use their program. They will also issue you their affiliate links. Some will put in your specific ID into the link and some will show you where your ID number goes.
It is imperative that you get the link thing correct so you can get your commissions. Also, don’t think you can lump tons of affiliate links all together and make lots of money. The most successful affiliates promote only one product at a time and they endorse the product too. This means they say something nice about the product and they build interest in the product by showing the potential buyer the need for having the product or service.
If you can’t find a link to join the affiliate program, it doesn’t mean they don’t have one. Some companies don’t really want everyone signing up for their program. A large percentage of the people that sign up never even put their links up. Companies just don’t want to mess with these people that don’t know what they are doing, so they’ll make their program “by request only.” If you find a company you really like, email them to see if they have an affiliate program.
In your ebook, this means that your recommendations should be worked into the text of the book in a natural way. Yes, you can have lots of affiliate links in a book, but just don’t make a big list of them.
Putting the Links in the Book:
There are two ways to put affiliate links in your book.
1. Simply put the entire link in the Word document before you convert it to Adobe PDF or
2. Make a separate page in your website for each affiliate product like
On this page you will say more about the affiliate product and, if you wish, you can put the long affiliate link under a “click here” for more info button that would take the visitor to the affiliate site.
Method 2 is more work, but actually better because if you find a better affiliate, you can switch the links on your site easier than redoing the links in your book. Diligently put affiliate links in your ebooks and watch your overall profits soar.
