I was reading “Top 10 WordPress Plugins That Affiliate Marketers Need” at MarketingElf.com the other day and came across a really useful WordPress plugin I wasn’t using.
The plugin is called Pretty Link, and it enables affiliates to shrink the huge affiliate links and get a branded URL with the affiliate’s domain name. Plus, the plugin enables affiliates to track clicks, specify the redirection type, and nofollow the link.
The plugin has an interface within WordPress with all of the options, and it also adds a quick Pretty Link took in the WordPress dashboard.
The basic Pretty Link plugin is free, and there is also a Pretty Link Pro version with lots of added features.
Pretty Link Pro provides keyword and URL replacement options, auto creation of Pretty Links to post to Twitter, customization of your Pretty Link base URL and more.
I’ve been using .htaccess redirects for my affiliate links for years, but I really like this slick, easy, time saving functionality.
Time for a change.
