How To Add Mouse Over Text To Your Widgets

Bookmark and Share

Have you ever wondered how to make a mouse over text for your widgets or banners on your websites? What about tracking the hits from those same widgets. Its not as difficult as you may think. Have you been tracking your campaigns and tweaking what is working or what is not? Keeping track of your marketing campaigns is sooo important so if your not doing it now you need to start.

When I first got started working online I was just happy if my links worked. The problem was that I had no idea which campaigns were driving the traffic.

For SBI owners, 5th Pillar Club members, and Renegade Marketer members the tracking module is easy to use. I'll show some examples of how to create a mouse over text for both systems below.

Anyway I've been playing around with some of the coding on the widgets that I use and studying the HTML code from other widgets. What an awesome feeling it is when you tweak here and there and it actually works.

These mouse over texts examples are not for those obnoxious pop up, in your face, you've got to see this form or ad. I find those really annoying but that's just me. These are simple one line texts that you can, with some copywriting brainstorming, add to your widgets so when a visitor puts their mouse over your banner the text appears.

Example #1 Site Build It Recession Buster Monthly Option

If you are a Site Build It owner or 5th Pillar Club member go into the Snippit It Build It! module grab the code for the Special Promotions.

It looks like this with your RR URL embedded.
<a href="http://order.sitesell.com/YOUR RR URL" target="_blank"><img src="http://graphics.sitesell.com/snippet/promo-125x125.gif" alt="Special SiteSell Promotion" border="0" width="125" height="125"></a>


Now all you need to do is place a piece of code in front of
<a href< xmp></center> <center><b>Important</b> drop the <xmp>&lt;a in front of a href and add
</div>
to the end of the code:
<div style="text-align:center;"><a title="Whatever You Want The Text To Say!" < xmp></b><br> <center>It should look like this:</center> <table align="center" border="1" cellpadding="5" cellspacing="0" width="200"> <tbody> <tr> <td bordercolor="#006633" bgcolor="#FFEC8B"><xmp><div style="text-align:center;"><a title="Whatever You Want To say!" href="http://order.sitesell.com/YOUR RR URL" target="_blank"><img src="http://graphics.sitesell.com/snippet/sbimb-120x240.gif" alt="SBI! Monthly Billing Option" border="0" width="120" height="240"></a></div>

In order to track it; go to the tracking module and highlight the code. Place the code between the quotes of the first URL.

Here's what mine looks like:
<div style="text-align:center;"><a title="Site Build It Delivers - Guaranteed!" href="http://order.sitesell.com/cgi-bin/adb/adb.pl?code=157853&amp;src=21102674" target="_blank"><img src="http://graphics.sitesell.com/snippet/sbimb-120x240.gif" alt="SBI! Monthly Billing Option" border="0" width="120" height="240"></a></div>


Special Note: If you aren't promoting this payment option on your site or in your marketing you might want to start. My conversion rates have doubled since adding this widget. It seems that people would prefer to pay $29.99/mo. Rather than $299.00/yr.

Example # 2 Attraction Marketers Manifesto Special Report

For Renegade Marketer System owners. The mouse over text process is the same as above except you want to go into the back office of the Renegade System and set up your tracking code. Be sure to name it something memorable or make notes to yourself about each tracking code so you know what is working, what is not working, and what content contains the link.

Here is the code without tracking:
<div style="text-align:center;"><a href="http://YOUR UNIQUE NAME.marketers manifesto.com/"><img src="http://YOUR UNIQUE NAME.marketersmanifesto.com/images /banners/banner4jpg" style="border: 0px" alt="The Marketer's Manifesto"/> </a></div>


Notice that this code is a little different from the Site Build It! Code. It already has the < div in it.

What you need to do is add the bolded code below after
<div style="text-align:center;">
<a title="Whatever You Want To Say" < xmp></b></center> <center>In this code all you need to is drop the <xmp>&lt;a in front of href. The
</div>
is already in the code.

It should look like this:
<div style="text-align:center;"><a title="Whatever You Want To Say!" href="http://YOUR UNIQUE NAME.marketersmanifesto.com/"> <img src="http://YOUR UNIQUE NAME.marketersmanifesto.com/images/ banners/banner4.jpg" style="border: 0px" alt="The Marketer's Manifesto"/> </a></div>

Here's the code with tracking:
<div style="text-align:center;"><a title="Whatever You Want To Say" href="http://YOUR UNIQUE NAME.marketersmanifesto.com/sbwidget"> <img src="http://YOUR UNIQUE NAME.marketersmanifesto.com/images/banners /banner4.jpg" style="border: 0px" alt="The Marketer's Manifesto"/> </a></div>


I named this sbwidget reminding me that its my side bar widget.

Now I'm going to show you how to make that open in a new window so you don't send your visitor off your site.

All you have to do is add: target=”_blank” after your URL. Be sure to click the space bar once after the end quote:
<div style="text-align:center;"><a title="Whatever You Want To Say" href="http://YOUR UNIQUE NAME.marketersmanifesto.com/sbwidget" target="_blank"> <img src="http://YOUR UNIQUE NAME.marketersmanifesto.com/images/banners /banner4.jpg" style="border: 0px" alt="The Marketer's Manifesto"/> </a></div>


That's all there is to it. Now go to the right nav bar on this page to see what it looks like.
You don't have to click on it just hover the mouse over the image.

Success has a simple formula: do your best, and people may like it. Sam Ewing
