How To Mask an Affiliate Link with a Domain name using

Quite a few people have been asking me how to mask an affiliate link and the process is quite simple.

The reason why you mask an affiliate link is to make them easier to remember as most affiliate links are long and difficult to remember.  The other advantage is sometimes people think this is the link to the course or software so people will refer other people to a certain course or software using your affiliate link which has been masked with a domain name not realising it is your affiliate link and you make a commission.

Here is a step by step guide


Step one
