Tutorial – How to Add Affiliate Links to Your WordPress Blog Post Part 2 (Image Link)

This is a continuation of the last post about adding a link because the person asking the question actually wanted to add the image link to the post. So… Yet another tutorial!

OK, so you are an affiliate for a company that you use their product or service. You want to post one or their banner ads in your blog post… but HOW?

Here are the steps I’ll illustrate:

  1. Click the “Text” tab
  2. Get the HTML code from your affiliate website
  3. Paste the code into the text editor in WordPress
  4. Preview your post to check the image link
  5. Publish the post

Step Four:
Preview Your post to Check the Image Link

It’s always a good idea, in general, to preview your posts before you publish them. This way you can be sure things look the way you want.
