Review on Exciting RevPages: images, videosYou want to put images and videos on your RevPages?
Well, you CAN!
RevPages accept HTML codes. There are some quirks regarding text, but for images and videos, it works fine.
NOTE: For all the HTML tags you will see below, I added blank spaces in the text after every < character else the tags would have been interpreted by APSense and you would not have seen them.
For images, you need the URL of the image, for example:
and your referral link, to make the image clickable so viewers can reach your page to join, let's say I use the following ref link:
The code will be:
< p align="center">< a href="http://www.staged.com/go/phmoisan">< img src="http://achieve-work-life-balance.com/images/stages/mainAdTraffic.jpg" style="border:0px;"/>< /a>< /p>
The tags < p align="center"> and its brother < /p> position the image at the center.
NOTE: As you can see in the preceding statement, the tags themselves appear in bold characters. I simply used the tags < strong> and < /strong> to show that effect.
The tags < a href=""> and < /a> are to make the link clickable. The link itself is between the quotes. Right in front of the < /a> tag, you can write anything, it will become the clickable anchor text, which is useless when making an image clickable.
The tag < img src="" /> is where you put the image's link.
NOTE: if you have your own domain, you can use FTP to upload an image you created yourself in any directory so that you can use that image. If you don't know how to use FTP, there are plenty of tutorials that will show you how.
Here's the result of the code I just described:
Sometimes, you don't want to make a click on the image go to another site, all you want is to open the image in a new tab in your browser. All you have to do is use:
to do this:
< a href="http://achieve-work-life-balance.com/images/stages/1st_thumbvu_stage.jpg" target="_blank">Click here to see a bigger image< /a>
On your RevPage, viewers will see "Click here to see a bigger image" written in blue, just like here:
Click here to see a bigger image
The ideal width is 500 pixels in a RevPage for an image ( or a video ). So, if the image you want to use is more or less than that, you can save it on your PC and modify its size using Paint then upload it in a place to use the image URL.
To extract anything and make an image to use, download the free software Screen Hunter. For some reason, the resulting image has to be saved in the .png format to upload properly in APSense. I don't know why. Some graphics expert might be able to explain why.

After these lenghty explanations for images, you might expect it will be way more complicated for videos. Actually, it's simpler.
First, if you created the video yourself, you can upload it to YouTube. Here's how:
Here's the embed code for this video:
< iframe title="YouTube video player" width="480" height="390" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/gtclRjSBZ6M" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen>< /iframe>
You can play around with the width and height to change the size to take advantage of the window where the video will show, or to reduce it if it's too big. Here on a RevPage, as I said earlier, a width of 500 is perfect.
I hope this little tutorial will help you create great looking RevPages. Of course, if you have suggestions for improvement, please leave a comment.
