Teachers Pay Teachers Product Link Generator

Here’s the method that I used to generate hyperlinks that I use for my “Item Description” hyperlinks.  Cross-promotiong your items via hyperlinks will help you sell more products.

TPT Product Link Generator Google Spreadsheet

Step 1. Click the link and go to File>Make a Copy.  Call it whatever name makes sense to you.  This will allow you to edit the document because my original file is ‘View Only’.

Step 2. In column A Add the text that you want for your hyperlink.  I usually just use my product name but it could be whatever text you want.

Step 3. In Column B copy and paste the link to your TPT product page for that product.

Step 4. Copy the HTML from column F (columns C-E are hidden) and paste it into your item description.  Boom! No need for HTML anymore.

I have an example of one of my products in Row 2.  Feel free to delete it on your copy.

I find this document to be very helpful for item descriptions and when I want to quickly access all of my product links for pinning or blogging.

How do you keep track of your links?

    Thank you so much for this! I knew how to make the links and typed in the code every time and thinking every time and I would make myself a list in order to just copy and paste the code but I never did.
    Now thanks to you, I’ll save a lot of time!

    Thank you so much, Chris! I tried the link generator tonight and was so happy about it, I included it in a blog post on my blog: http://maryannsaylor-secondarystrategies.blogspot.com/. Feel free to check it out, but be kind, please! I am very new to TpT, blogging, Pinterest–the whole thing–so my baby blog has a long way to go, as you will see if you visit. Anyway, I love this generator, your TPTschool, and your willingness to share what you’ve learned. I’ll be back for more! Maryann

    Chris, Thank you so much for this. I had seen that others had done this and just didn’t want to have to organize and go through all of it. Now you have made that so much easier. I was thinking about linking to similar products with some kind of statement like “not quite what you were looking for? Many this is a better fit. “(link) My thoughts being that if the product they are looking at is what they want they would stay around and look more, but if it isn’t they might leave and this would keep them around. What do you think?

    This is amazing! Exactly what I’ve spent hours (days, weeks, months!) searching for. Thank you SO much!

    Once it converts it and I copy it in a word document, it doesn’t link to the product. What am I doing wrong?

    Okay, so today was the day that I decided to really look at setting up a TpT store. Luckily, it was the day I found this wonderful website. You’ve answered so many of my questions. The most important thing I’ve learned is that you really live your idea of sharing. Thank you for this tutorial and the ebook. I’ve learned so much, and I feel ready and excited. You walk the walk, and I thank you!
