A few days ago I wrote an article on how to link your Craigslist ad directly to your website. In the comments section of that article, Johnny asked me how to link an image in his Craigslist ad to his website. Today I’ll show you how to do just that.
Linking images to your website is a good habit to get into. People click a lot of images – sometimes just to see what happens – and having a link behind your image can generate some good traffic. Having an image with text on it saying something like “Click here for your free quote… or to learn more .. or to do anything else” is a good way to expand your sales funnel.
Again, these steps can be used all over the web. Not only will this show you how to create a link from the image on your Craigslist ad to your website, you will be able to use this technique to link from multiple other platforms like eBay, bulletin boards, your Facebook corporate page and elsewhere on the web.
Step 1: Create a Hyperlink.
Follow the steps I listed in the How to Link your Craigslist ad Directly to your Website.
Again, your hyperlink code should look something like this:
<a src="http://www.CharlotteWebDevelopment.com/SomeLinkHere">The text you want to be linked</a>
Once you have that hyperlink code set, proceed to Step 2.
Step 2: Get Your Image ready.
Make sure you have a photo set to be put up. Following the steps I wrote in this article How to Post a Picture on Craigslist
Your code from this part should look something like this:
Once you have the image code, move on to Step 3.
Step 3: Combine the Image Code and the Hyperlink Code.
Now we are going to delete the hyperlink text and put the image code inside the hyperlink code.
You should come out with something that looks like this:
<a src="http://www.CharlotteWebDevelopment.com"><img src="http://www.CharlotteWebDevelopment.com/Charlotte_Website_Design_Logo.jpg"></a>
Once you put it on the web, the results should be like this image. Go ahead and click it. It will bring you to another page. Don’t worry, I’ll be right here when you get back!
Try it out and let me know how it goes. Any questions, just leave a comment below.
