However, you are bound to a fixed structure: this initially consists of a main page with a headline, an info video and/or an info text as well as an overview of the advertising media you have made available for all your products. On the main page you can give general information about what it’s like to promote products using your advertising media.

By clicking on one of the advertising media buttons (e.g. “Links Product 1), your affiliate finally gets to an advertising media subpage. This consists of a headline, an info video and/or info text as well as the advertising media itself (e.g. advertising link, image of the banner or email text of the email campaign). Here you can see an example of a subpage of the advertising media “Links”.

Step 1: Create main page

  1. In the vendor view, go to Marketplace > Advertising media.
  2. Click on the Set up affiliate area button.
  3. As a Language, select between German and English and then click on Ok.
  4. Now you can adjust various settings:
    1. Product ID: If you should use the placeholder [PARTNER_LINK] in the info text below, an advertising link will be set for the product selected here. Don’t be confused: As described above, the main page is created for all products together and not just for the product you specify here.
    2. Active: Here you can activate and deactivate the advertising media feature altogether.
    3. Title: Here you enter the headline of the main page.
    4. Info video for the affiliates: Here you enter the URL of your info video.

  2. Click on the button Add advertising media.
  3. Select the type of advertising media (links, email campaign, banner, blog article or social media messages) and then click on Ok.
  4. ​Now you can adjust various settings:
    1. Product ID: Here you enter the product to which the currently selected advertising media refers.
    2. Target URL: Enter here the URL for which you want to place a link if you set a link with the placeholder [PARTNER_LINK] in the info text of the subpage or in the advertising media itself.
      Please note: This input field does not exist for the advertising media “Links”.
    3. Active: Here you can activate and deactivate the advertising media feature.
    4. ​​​​Language: Select a language here.
    5. Title of the advertising media list: Enter here the headline of the subpage.
    6. Info video for the affiliates: Here you can enter the URL of your specific advertising media info video.
    7. Info text for the affiliates: Here you can insert a specific advertising media info text. By clicking on the question mark, the various placeholders that you can use will be displayed.
  5. Finally, click on Apply.

You have now successfully created advertising media/a subpage; however, depending on the type of advertising media you still have to fill it with content.

  • Advertising media links: Enter a target URL and a description.
  • Advertising media email campaign: Insert the text of your email campaign here.
  • Advertising media banner: Enter a slogan and the image URL of your banner.
  • Advertising media blog article: Enter a headline, video code or URL and the text of your blog article here.
  • Advertising media social media message: Enter your message here.

[PARTNER_LINK] serves as a placeholder for the affiliate link that is derived from your specified target URL on the subpages of the advertising media. This way, the affiliate can copy and paste the entire text without having to replace the links.

At the end, don't forget to click on Save. By clicking on Preview, you will see what your main page and subpage will look like for your affiliate.
