Using A WordPress Plugin With YouTube Called Pretty Links Lite
One of the many mysteries of internet marketing is how to link up the various facets of optin pages with landing pages, Thank You pages and websites. In effect, the real question should be: how does a sales funnel work? And the one thing that acts as the glue to ensuring there’s a smooth transition from one part of the sales funnel to the other is often referred to as cloaking. So, the task under-pinning all of this is how to cloak and redirect links to your ebooks, free gifts and downloads, which you find on the landing pages etc.
This video is all about making those ugly-looking URL links look presentable and professional, because you want the visitor to your landing page or website to have as pleasant a journey as possible as you direct them towards your product or service offering.
For “ugly” read “spammy”.
And a brilliant WordPress plugin that helps you achieve this is Pretty Links.
There’s a free version and a paid version.
The free version is great if all you want to do is cloak and redirect links to your ebooks, free gifts etc., and make your URL links look pretty so as to divert the viewer to a different website landing page, for example.
The paid version has a lot more functionality and is worth taking a look at if you are more active in the field of affiliate marketing, for example.

This is almost like the holy grail of attracting viewers/prospects etc. to your videos and getting them to leave their contact details i.e. email address, for you so you can then contact them at a later date with more information that they’re likely to be interested in i.e. emaqil marketing campaigns. (where you can, after a while, promote paid digital products, services, physical products and affiliate products etc.)
This is what this video is all about. It’s showing how you can compile an ebook so that it is attractive enough for viewers to want to download it…..and leave you their email address etc.
The process of setting up the opt-in box for viewers to enter their email address will be covered in a future video. For now, though, we’ll just concentrate on producing the downloadable product itself i.e. the ebook (note: it doesn’t have to be an ebook – it can be an article, a 10-point checklist or anything that provides really useful information to the viewer/prospect).
In this video, I show a link to the ebook that I use as an example, which you can also click on here to download……..
If watch time is the most crucial measurement of the quality of a video, when it comes to getting your video ranked on page 1 of YouTube and Google, then it makes sense to produce relevant and high quality content that viewers are going to enjoy viewing.
