Affiliate Freedom – Finally, full control over your wordpress site.

So for those who haven’t heard, Unique Blog Designs have released the “Affiliate Theme” for WordPress.
Now, there’s two reasons to get excited. Not only will it give you a lot more control over your layout, blogs etc on your site, but it also has an easy interface for inputting any referral or affiliate code for promoting your products. Whether they are Amazon associates, or just any old e-book or referral, you will not have to get knee deep in code to understand how to easily input your referral content.

The layout of the theme designer within “Affiliate Theme” gives you several layout options, a complete colour tool to choose from thousands of backdrops, but you will also have more control of all the little bits and bobs that annoy you.

Below are some examples

Example 1 Simple but effective.
Example 2 Sleek Dating Affiliate
Example 3 Online Opportunities Example

WordPress is a very powerful CMS, and using a theme like this can really get you the professional results, to a degree where people don’t even think its a wordpress page, it looks like a website, end of.

LinkBucks Experiment – Earn Ad Revenue When People Leave?

So, a couple of days ago, we began experimenting with LinkBucks advertising on our “Web Essentials” page on http://www.one3rdnerd.com/ and I wanted to give a little feedback.

Basically LinkBucks is completely FREE and allows you to make ad revenue from other peoples websites, blogs, or content. Setting up my account was straight forward, and it was pretty easy to generate the links. You simply get the link in full, that you want to put on your page, and submit it to your LinkBucks account. You then select whether the link is “clean” or not (adult content), decide what sort of advert you want, and choose a link extension.

I decided to opt for the “top banner” option, as this allows you to remain more professional looking, and an “intermission” or “pop up”. I also chose .seriousurl.com over the linkbucks.com extension option, as again, it looks a bit more professional.

Once generated, you simply use the url they generate instead of your existing one, and when people click the link, they will be redirected to the website intended, with the addition of one advert at the very top.

Id love to hear from people who have been using this service themselves, or anyone else who is interested in starting.

To sign up, click the Linkbucks image below. Yes they run a referral service, on a three tier basis, Always interesting to experiment, and see what the potential is, as this is an exciting method of monetizing your website.
