As a noob affiliate marketer, and a WordPress devotee, I’m always looking for plugins to make my life a little easier.
I came across a program called WordPress Affiliate Pro, and while I haven’t bought it yet, I’d like to.
Usually, these things come across as the perfect way to throw away money- being ebooks with nothing new to offer, or a program that can be gotten free somewhere else. But this one is different, or at least it seems to be.
There are two main types of affiliate ads: banner (it’s still called a banner ad, even if it’s 125X125), and text.
In either case, it takes forever to log into the affiliate account to grab the code, search out the appropriate keywords, copy/paste/insert link- and you have to do it for each location on each post and page that you want the ads on. Even if you keep a file of the individual codes for easy access, it still takes time to get the links live.
