How To: How the Linkmaker works
Are you new at stylink and wondering how you can earn money with product recommendations on social media? Here we explain step by step how our Linkmaker works.
Registration and Login
To begin, you have to log in to stylink with your e-mail address and password to use our Linkmaker.
If you have never used stylink before, you have to register first. After you have logged in, you will be directed to the Linkmaker. On this page, you can see all the partner shops we work with. Along with the shop list, we show you the respective commission per click for each shop. Please note that the amount changes daily.
From the overview of the online shops, select the shop from which you would like to recommend a product to your followers, such as Missguided, Lulus, or Talbots. A new tab will open in your browser, no matter if you are logged in via mobile device or on your computer. You can search for your favorite product in the online shop.
Copy product link
Did you find a product? Then copy the product link, just like you copy texts and links. It is very simple: On your smartphone, you tap the address bar of your browser; either the address bar is highlighted or a menu opens directly with the option to copy the link—depending on which device and which browser you are using. When you "copy" or select the corresponding icon, the link is stored in your clipboard.
On your computer, mark the entire link in the address bar with the mouse and then right-click to select "copy".
Insert product link into Linkmaker
Now switch back to the stylink tab with the Linkmaker and insert the product link into the input field. To do this, hold down the input field on your smartphone for a long time. On your computer, right-click on the link to insert it. Then press "Enter." Great, you've created your affiliate link!
We've also introduced a new feature: You can create your affiliate links through WhatsApp now. Simply send the product link that you want to convert into an affiliate link to +49 157 9251 4373 and you will instantly receive your affiliate link and information on your compensation.
Important: You must be registered at stylink and create links for shops that you can find in our shop portfolio. Please only send one link at a time and do not include any greetings - otherwise our system cannot process your request.
Share affiliate link
To use the affiliate link, click on the "Copy" button. The link is now stored in the clipboard of your device. To be on the safe side, you can save it again in a note-taking app on your smartphone or somewhere else so that it won't get lost. Finally, insert the affiliate link where you want it to be: In your Instagram story, YouTube description box, Pinterest, or on your blog. Please remember to mark your content as an advertisement, for example using #AD.
Get your stylinks even faster with our WhatsApp Linkmaker
Want to quickly create a stylink for Instagram? Just send us the product link you want to convert via WhatsApp to the number (+49) 1579 2514373 and get your stylink and information about your compensation back immediately.
How does it work? Copy the product link directly from the online shop that you wish to share. Paste the link into the WhatsApp chat and hit send. You will immediately receive your individual stylink that is ready to be posted on Instagram. It is that easy!
Please keep in mind that your WhatsApp number must be registered with stylink and send us a link from one of our partner shops. Only send one link at a time and refrain from using a greeting or something similar; otherwise, our system will not be able to process your request.
Show your followers what you like
If you want to link a complete outfit for your followers, you create an affiliate link in the Linkmaker for each product. This means that you have to upload multiple stories to link more than one product. On YouTube, you copy multiple affiliate links into your description box.
If you use our Linkmaker a couple of times, you'll probably learn the ropes soon. Then you can copy the product link directly from the online shop without logging in to stylink. But please remember to check if we still work with your selected online shop because our partner shops change from time to time. Creating links from our partner shops is the only way you can earn money with the clicks of your followers.
