How To Embed Links Into Images And Text – Video Tutorial

how to embed links into text and images

I often receive messages from Just Publishing Advice readers, asking for more information about how to embed links into text and images.

This is an essential skill for authors in particular, as any form of book promotion requires good-looking links.

In a previous post, I wrote about adding better-looking links.

But it didn’t include a step-by-step process for how to embed links into text and image links.

To save a lot of writing and explaining, I decided to make a short 6-minute video.

It shows you how to create great-looking text and image links for your blog, in Word documents, or an email.

I have also included instructions for adding Amazon’s new ebook embed script.

Hopefully, this video will make it easier for you to add links to text for your blogs and websites.

More about links

There are many ways you can use links to promote your books and your blog.

You can promote your book with links that are not only to your Amazon book page.

When you are promoting your Kindle book or paperback, you promote your book with links to your book on your website, blog, Facebook, Twitter, and many more sites.

The chances are that you are posting at least a few links to your book for potential readers every day, like all published authors.

But if you keep using a direct link to your book on Amazon, or your free Kindle ebooks, people are not going to react well to seeing the same Amazon link over and over again.

Good book promotion linking is all about including lots of variety.

If you can give readers alternative ways to discover your book, you have a much better chance of attracting their attention.

There are so many ways you can promote your book online.

    Thank you so much for this. I was hesitant to contact you again. I am such a visual person, so having this video to watch, was the icing on the cake for me! I finally got it!

    My very best to you Sir,
