I have spent the last hour or so, maybe two if you count the off and on time but I am not finding it easy, or maybe I should say simple. So far I’ve tried to get set up with a few different products and it includes a .zip file, pictures, codes from different pages, and then pulling them all together. Now I know how to do all this, don’t get me wrong, but man, it is soooo much more tedious than say putting up this ad for a book someone recommended to me recently:
…which I did with a simple Amazon plugin that is simply called “WP – Amazon”. All i had to do was search for the book from the same screen I’m typing up this blog post, and click “Insert Image” which is a lot more user friendly for the busy blogger.
I do have a few ClickBank ads up, the text links to the upper right of this page for example, they are auto-generated though I don’t much like them either because of the awkward space following them leading to an inconsistent look on my page…so yeah they probably won’t be on much longer.
Eventually I’ll trudge through more of the CB stuff and find a good system to get the cool ads up…I have some products I have experience with that I want to promote. I am looking at some new themes too so I’ll likely do it all one of those days that I have the energy and lack of distractions to do so. ClickBank seems to be pretty standard and since CJ took half my earnings for not making enough with them, it left a sour taste in my mouth when they did that.
So I’ll report back on how that turns out, I am about done for the night playing with plugins and affiliate networks, at least for now.
So have a good night!! I’m going to go pay attention to the movie Geoff just put on:
