Default Finally got a landing page up, HTML and all! Did I do it correctly?

Ok, so after much frustration (due to my own laziness) and searching around online today, I said screw it and was determined to conquer the only technical hurdle that was in the way of my success. I think I finally figured out how to make and throw up a landing page. For this example I just used one of Neverblue's html creatives and inserted the code into a blank template in dreamweaver. Please help me to understand if I got the steps correct:

1. I took the html code from the Neverblue creative and pasted it in between the 2 body tags. like this:


html stuff.......


Here is what i looks like with the index.html file uploaded: http://inforeviewsite.com/schollymom/

It looks like everything is okay. Do I still need to upload a style.css file and an images folder with images? I'm guessing no, but what do you guys think?

I think I have it down so i'm going to go ahead and give myself a premature pat on the back. I'm going to go ahead and use PIXLR (because it's easy for now) to add backgrounds and stuff, and to make my own landing pages. And now I can use PIXLR to finalize the sizing (750x550) and then just grab the code and throw it into dreamweaver. Jesus, this seems so easy now.......

So all I needed to do from the beginning is:

-design a page or grab html code for a creative

-adjust the size in PIXLR and save the file

-copy the html code

-load it into dreamweaver between the body tags

-save the file as index.html file

-Upload the index.html file via file manager to my domain's sub folder (the one I make)

-make sure the button or click here image/text has my affiliate link attached.

Is this all the steps?

For my example page when I click on the "register now" button in the neverblue creative, dreamweaver highlights this line of code:

<img src="http://hynklds.com/email/162385/08.gif" width="163" height="41" border="0" alt="CLICK HERE"></a></td>

How do I attach my affiliate link to this?

I just figured out that I could add my affiliate link in dreamweaver by clicking on the button and then pasting in my link at the bottom. So by the looks of it I have my first landing page up with my affiliate link inserted. I guess there's hope after all! I feel less retarded now..... Now I don't have any excuses for not succeeding.

If any other newbies need help let me know, maybe I can record a screen capture and post it on youtube or something.

yeah just copy and paste, you could have just copied and pasted into notepad, then saved as html, it would do the same thing.

You don't need an images folder for this since the image is being called from Neverblue's server, img src="http://www.clixmerchant.com/impression.php?i=2283&c=308&p=623" and img src="http://hynklds.com/email/162385/01.jpg" There is a call for a spacer image from an images folder but I'm guessing it's not that important since the page didn't get messed up.

Similarly, you don't need CSS for this one since the page does not use CSS, it's a very basic setup of just a few images slapped together. CSS has formatting, text size, fonts, link colors, etc.

Definitely give yourself a pat on the back if you've never touched html before and now you have. I remember the first time I touched html way back in 199-something, it was a thrill, first time I'd done anything like that.

Hey thanks for clearing up those last few points. Strangely enough everything makes sense now, even though I still don't know squat about html. I guess the important thing is that I can now do what I need to do without any hurdles in the way......
