Photo By Aleksi TappuraBefore I started blogging, I used Google Documents (which changed to Google Drive) because I have a Mac and my MBA professors had a PC. I was able to generate Word documents without having to buy expensive software. Then when I started blogging, I noticed bloggers using Google Forms all of the time to create forms for their blogs without having to code them on HTML. Genius! So I’d like to share with you the amazing and awesome Google Form and Spreadsheet option that you can use for your blog or small business. Rather than recreate the wheel, I found a Google Slideshow that does a great job of instructing you on how to create your own Google Form and Spreadsheet. You will find that the best part of the Google Form and Spreadsheet option is that the spreadsheet is automatically generated as people complete the form! Then you can download the information and use it in Excel, or share it with other Google Drive users to collaborate on a project. Amazing! Here is the Google Form and Spreadsheet Slideshow: Enjoy creating your own Google Form and Spreadsheet document pairs in Google Drive!

#HowTo Create a Custom Deep Link in Commission Junction

I like creating custom deep links because it allows your blog reader to go directly to the item you are talking about on the website for the brand you are promoting.  Some affiliate programs offer this option and some do not.  In this post I will explain how to create a custom deep link in Commission Junction.  First, I’d like to share some important information about deep links directly from the Commission Junction Support Center:

Deep Linking allows you to drive customers to specific pages on an advertiser’s site to increase your click to sale conversion ratio.  (Source:  Commission Junction Support Center - Creating Deep Links)

[Commission Junction] research shows that advertisers that allow deep linking average between 20-50% more sales on deeplinks.  (Source:  Commission Junction Support Center – Benefits of Deep Linking)

As of the date/time of this post, here is a step-by-step guide to how I create a deep link:

  1. Login to Commission Junction
  2. Click Links
  3. In the search area choose the Advertiser (in this example I will use Family Christian Bookstores)
  4. Check the Deep Linking Only box
  5. Choose a link and click Get Code
  6. Go to the brand website (in this example, I go to http://www.familychristian.com/)
  7. Choose the product you would like to promote on their website
  8. Copy and paste the direct URL to this page on the advertiser website
  9. Return to the Commission Junction tab or window
  10. Paste the URL you just copied into the Destination URL box
  11. Click Update Code
  12. Copy and paste your code as usual to place it on your site

Another option is to use the Deep Link Generator Tool. You can get more information about this tool in the Support Center or on this video:
