Creating an affiliate link in ThirstyAffiliates is very simple. Just goto ThirstyAffiliates->Add New and fill in at least two things:
- The name of the affiliate link (for your reference later)
- The destination URL (where the link should go when clicked on)
That is the minimum required.
You can then use that link by clicking on the “TA” icon in your visual editor when writing articles by searching for it using the name you recorded above.
Here is a great getting started video which explains a little more about link cloaking as well as gives you a tour of how to use ThirstyAffiliates:
