Couple of noob questions about SAS as don't understand after reading info.
How do I create an affiliate text link? When I click text on the programs i have joined it brings up banners and html.
How do I understandt how good a program is compared to another and how its performing. Its easy on Click Bank due to the gravity score, is there nothing similar in SaS?
Thanks in advance

Before you join a merchant you can see their numbers on the merchant detail page if you find them in SAS search. After you join a merchant you can see their numbers on the merchant detail page via the link in your Activity Summary Report. When you get links you have several options to get a text link, the easiest way is to click on "Get Links" from your Activity Summary" report and then click on "Text" or else download them all and extract the text links you prefer.
When I click text on the programs i have joined it brings up banners and html.

Thanks for your reply,
I see the text links now but i think what I meant was an affiliate link, so a traceable link from text from my website,
similar to the below
I got this through merchant email btw

That is your affiliate link, you just add the html tags and appropriate text for the landing page.
When you received the link it should have a description to tell you what the link is for. To use it as a text link you just insert that link where is says "paste link here" and insert text to let visitors know what the link is for.
All links have the same basic format:
< a href = "paste link here" >Add Text Here< /a >
BTW, in SAS links you can add your own code after the afftrack= part so you can tell later on where that click came from. This is helpful if you have different sites or pages or campaigns and you want to see what produces the best results.

In the SAS interface, under Get Links Heading, click Get a Link/Banner. This will give you a list of your joined merchants in a table. I ignore the dropdowns at the top of this page and just scroll down to the merchant I want a link for.
Then click the Get Links link under the Merchant's name, which will bring up a links page for that merchant. On that page, you'll see a row of links: Text Links / Banners / perhaps some Products / perhaps Datafeed. Click Text Links.
If the merchant has defined any text links, you'll see a list at this point (the one I was looking at when I typed this had NO text links, however, ROFL).
NOTE: The terminology on the text links display list is very quirky -- it says something like "Banner ID: 999999 - Diamond Earrings". The next line down shows how the text link will look: "Get Quality Diamond Earrings from MerchantABCDE" for example. Under that line is this: "Get this Banner's HTML code". That link will actually give you the HTML code for the Text link -- they just use the same listing format here for both banners and text links, so ignore the "banner" terminology and get the HTML.
The HTML you get will have your affiliate code already embedded in it.

And I forgot to mention that SAS regularly schedules walkthrough webinars to show all aspects of the interface, as well as other training and tips. I viewed part of the interface training yesterday and learned a few things.
Check their blog (http://blog.shareasale.com/) for info about upcoming seminars (click the Webinar Schedule link in upper right of the blog header).

You can also use the "Create a Custom Link to a Page" feature to create an affiliate link to any product or any page on a joined merchant's site.
If you have problems, there is one of those SAS video tutorials on how to use it.
