Affiliate Linking Methods

Informing your clients about purchasing a custom Fit For Trips fitness program can be in the form of text links (also known as a hyperlinks). The orange font (often the color blue) in the previous sentence is an example of a text link. If you click on the text ‘purchasing a custom fitness program,’ your browser will bring up the web page containing the information your clients will read to understand the details about Fit For Trips services. The advantage of text links in an affiliate program is they are ingrained in the content of your site or email and don't look so much like advertisements.

Another linking method that’s effective is adding a hyperlink to an icon like the GET FIT FOR YOUR TRIP icon below. When you click on the icon the hyperlink will - just as the text link does - bring up the web page containing Fit For Trips details. The icons/banners below contain a hyperlink just like they would on your site or email. These hyperlink examples just have the fitfortrips.com web address but your hyperlink will also contain your unique identification number.

If you are unfamiliar how to do this any web developer can do it for you in less than five minutes or teach you how to apply the simple hyperlink techniques.
