Creating Custom or Direct Product Links

I am often asked what is the highest converting creative in an affiliate program. The answer is always the text link. It is not the text link that makes it convert but the words and personal opinion that surrounds the link. There are two ways to create deep links/product links. Follow the instructions below for each.

STEP ONE

Log into Shareasale here 

STEP TWO

Click on Links and then Get Links/Banners in the sub-navigation

STEP THREE

Select the LATHER as your merchant. If you recently joined, we will be in the list on the left-hand side. If it has not been recent, enter LATHER into the Merchant Search box.

 

STEP FOUR

Click on Create A Custom Link To A Page

 

STEP FIVE

Now you have two options.

Option One – Simply add the URL of the product detail page into the Paste URL box. and click Create Custom Link.

Copy and paste the URL that appears on the next page. Click Get Short URL for a social media friendly url

 

Option Two- Download the Bookmarklet. Option two takes a little longer the first time around but makes all future affiliate links easier.This will allow you to easily create links directly to the products you are talking about WITHOUT having to log into your Shareasale. And not just for Au Naturale but for ALL Shareasale merchants. Click on the Download Bookmarklet icon on the right-hand side of the page. You will see a page from a blue square that says Shareasale Product Discovery Tool.

This option allows you to easily create links directly to the products you are talking about WITHOUT having to log into your Shareasale. And not just forLATHER but for ALL Shareasale merchants.

Click on the Download Bookmarklet icon on the right-hand side of the page. You will see a page from a blue square that says Shareasale Product Discovery Tool.

Drag this box to your bookmark. When it is complete your Bookmark bar will have the Shareasale tool within it.

Now whenever you go to http://www.lather.com, navigate and find the product you are promoting. Click on the Shareasale Product Discovery Tool. You see several amazing options.

 

Option 1- Easiest Link Access – If you want a quick and short affiliate url, go to the right-hand side and click on the Create button next to the License Plate Link. It is denoted in the picture above with the number 1. A shortened url will appear for you once you click on Create. Copy this url and paste as a hyperlink in your blog post or as a link for your social media shout out. This type of link works great for YouTube, Facebook and on your Instagram profile.

#2 and #3 – Get the image and the link. Click on the green arrows (#2) and select the image you would like to display. Click on #3/Click to View and copy HTML. Copy and paste the enter code. It is already highlighted for you and defaults to creative which means image.

You will want to add via Text option in WordPress. Below is an example of what it will look like. Note, the sizes of the images are displayed in the gallery so be sure to select an image size that works for your blog.
