BlueFur Webhosting is the first to come out with a DealDotCom WordPress plugin. The plugin creates a banner to display the current deal being offered by DealDotCom. Clicking on the banner takes you to the DealDotCom site so you can buy today’s item. Here is an example of the banner it creates.
The banner, available in text and graphical versions, links to DealDotCom using your affiliate ID so you get credit for any resulting sales. Installation is extremely easy. Just download, unzip, upload to your plugins folder and activate. Then go to WordPress options to enter your affiliate ID and choose between text or graphical banner. There’s also option to customize the text and border colors plus set the width of the banner.
Once all the options are set, call up the banner by adding <?php dealdotcom(); ?> to the area of your blog where you want the banner to appear. The most logical location would be the sidebar. For those who don’t know what DealDotCom is, then check out this blog post for a refresher.
