How To Share a Link To Your Coupons From WordPress

To link to your coupons, click the “Share with Friends” button in your NerdWallet Dashboard. Click the “Share with Friends” button and follow the four easy steps to add a button badge to your website to share a link to your coupons on NerdWallet.

Share with Friends

Step 1: Select a badge to place on your WordPress website

There are five badges to choose from. Select a small badge with a white or blue background or a large badge with a white or blue background or an HTML text link. Click to select which badge you would like to add to your website or blog.  You can see which badge is selected by the light grey border around the chosen badge. Use the HTML text link version of the badge if you don’t want to add an image to your webpage. This badge will link to your store’s own personal coupon page on NerdWallet. Just click on a badge to select it. Here’s an example:

Step 3: Paste the code snippet on your blog or website

 Paste the code snippet that you copied from Step 2 onto your blog or website in the HTML source code. Paste the code wherever you want on your blog or website – your sidebar, your footer, or anywhere you’d like. The code will show up as the picture badge button or HTML text link that you selected in Step 1.

To add the badge code to your WordPress, you can add a Widget to your blog by going to the Appearance menu and selecting the Widgets menu option.
