    Thank you , thank you Tiffany. I realize I should be in “text” mode (it doesn’t give html). Will let you know how it turned out. This will be great as I have some product suggestions in the previous posts which are perfect for affiliate links.

    Nice post. I use this same method for my Squidoo pages. Then I copy the post as text and transfer to Squidoo. If I don’t want it on my site I just save it as a draft. I think it is quicker this way but might not be for some.

  • I have another option that’s free, but takes less work (I think).

    I found this a while back to use with squidoo, but found it works okay with wordpress in the html editor too.

    This site gives you the option to add your own amazon id, and then you can enter either the URL to the product you want, or find the aisn number and enter that.

    Then you can adjust your item layout and colors below that. It’s similar to the paid software that everyone started using last year for squid pro quo.

    However, this is free and I don’t think you even have to register on the site. The site’s owner is very open to suggestions and feedback or requests for help.

    In fact, he added some of those features after I asked him about them.

    What’s really cool is that if you just want to feature one product, but don’t want it as big as the largest option, you can pick the option to display in more colums (like 2 or 3) and the photo will be sized as if there will be more photos added.

    Here’s the site.http://www.imarketingtool.com/toolbox/squidoo-niche-blaster.aspx

    Sorry if I’m hi-jacking the post, Tiff. Your way is good! Maybe that’s my next video post – a demo.

      Thanks Jenn! I take the long way on stuff because I don’t trust the longevity of tools. LOL

    • Jenn that is such a faaaaaaast way to create the banners compared to any of the other services!

      But since I just had many lenses mangled by Squidoo for using a banner code that had a link back to the site (as in the Amazon Buy buttons on this service site) when they removed the entire text box the code was in, along with all my CONTENT text…. that I’m now wary of using ANY banner services again.

      But I really do love the way these are done… I’m pretty sure I’ll be using it for some lenses, but I will still rely on always having some text links in the intro and at least one other text module’s content

      • …hmmmm… I just checked the graphic links and they are amazon hosted by the look of it, so there might not be any linkback to the banner software site after all… could be a winner!

    I love how easy it is to do amazon – plus the extra sales when people end up on a shopping binge when they get over there.

    I wish they let NC be an affiliate!

    Great tutorial. Cute giraffe!

    Tiffany, thanks for the post on hyperlinking posts on an Amazon site.

    I’m in the process of building up my first site and haven’t added any new products for a few months. I’ve been concentrating on non-review type posts.

    Meanwhile, while experiencing a seniors moment, I forgot the steps for creating text and image links.

    You saved me from having to rummage through my very disorganized notes.

    Cheers, Leon

    Hi Tiffany:

  • Kay collier says:

    Thanks for that lesson Tiffany, WordPress used to be easier before they updated, but now I have noticed from the forum that lots of people are having trouble uploading images & photos, including me,your way is much better.



  • Janet says:

    Thanks Tiffany – I have had a blog and a review page ready to go for almost a week now just waiting to sort out how to do this – the thing I was doing wrong was that I was pasting all of the html and not just the http bit. I searched Google but didn’t find anything as simple as your explanation. One guy was suggesting adding stuff to the html editor in the back office – which I tried and everything went haywire!!

    Thanks again

  • You know what Tiff… one of the blog posts created should be a blog about a product we recommend and we include some text and/or graphic links to Amazon to show that everyone has ‘got it’ and know how to do it in the future.

    I get frustrated with myself that I keep adding new how-to content guide pages to the site, but haven’t taken the time to go find Amazon products for most of the pages, or in hardly any of the blog posts.

    I think you should pick a week/day when we all should link our “Amazon links” blog page.

    We need to develop the ‘habit’ of monetizing our pages and blog posts when appropriate.

    That is just about the only way you will ever know if the information here is helpful and was USED by the community.

    • Tiffany says:

      We can suggest but I’m not going to make it part of the challenge – might not be a good fit for everyone. But it’s a great suggestion to do it!

    I see I’m not the only one who makes great tutorials. 🙂

    Cute giraffe! 🙂

  • Tamsin says:

    Thanks Tiff. I’ve always battled with it. Don’t know why ‘cos it really is very simple!

  • Carol says:

    Ladies, i have an awesome amazon image trick that i like to share. If you’re promoting an amazon product, amazon does not mind if you hotlink it from their server. To quickly hotlink a product image all you need is the ASIN number (usually in the product description)

    simply copy and paste the following url to you html code

    “http://images.amazon.com/images/P/ASIN-number here.01.S.jpg”

    for example if you want to add the image of the teether the ASIN# is B000IDSLOG

    your img URL source would be:


    and your img code would be:


    Also, if you want to add the horizontal spacing just add this code(hspace=”10″) that way you don’t have switch to the advance setting.

    Tiff, maybe you can do a part 2 video for the visual learners. Let me know what you think 🙂

  • Carol says:

    oops the code didn’t show up.

    the img code should look something like this
