Linking Strategies

MoneyMix linking button, click to enlarge Place the linking button on your home page

The easier you make it to find MoneyMix, the more likely you'll turn your members into regular readers and more frequent visitors to your Web site.

Ideally, members should find the link to the MoneyMix right on your home page. Logo buttons (which you can download) are the most obvious and effective links.

However, if a logo button conflicts with your site's design, the next best alternative is to use the name as a text link. That way, members know immediately where the link goes, rather than having to explore indirect connections. And, your subscription allows you unlimited links from your Web site to MoneyMix—so take advantage of them.

Place the linking button on your secondary pages

Create links to MoneyMix from other pages on your site, such as your consumer information, savings, budgeting, and lending pages. Use the MoneyMix logo for instant recognition.

Place the linking button on your online branch login page

Let your online members know about this new service as they log in to access their account information.

Place linking buttons within MoneyMix to take members BACK to specific product or service pages on your Web site

Ideally, whatever destination you choose, the specific service you want members to consider should appear on the first screen they see, so that members have no doubt they've come to the right place. The more direct you make the links, the more useful they’ll be to your members.

If the service you want to target is not at the top of the destination page, modify the HTML code to take them farther down the page.
