The NATS For Networks Affiliate Creatives page lets you choose from a wide variety of different creatives to help promote your offer(s). This allows for a wide variety of different affiliate promotions – such as banners, galleries, downloadable content, interactives, and page ads.

Affiliates can use the affiliate creatives pages to find creatives from multiple categories to promote offers with, download the creatives they wish to use, and get the necessary linkcodes to record their statistics with when referring visitors through that creative.

Finding Your Affiliate Creatives

You can find the Affiliate Creatives pages in the "Creatives" section of the top toolbar, found on every affiliate-side page in NATS For Networks. Just mouse over the "Creatives" section and choose the creative type you want to view.


Click the “Creatives” tab to go to the main Affiliate Creatives page, where you'll see every category of creatives available to you, broken down by offer (or all offers).

The Affiliate Creatives Offer Selection Page

Choose the creative type that you want to view, and choose the offer you want to view those creatives for by clicking the hyperlinks available here. Clicking one of the creative types listed here brings you to a list of all available creatives of that type, along with various features that let you search for specific creatives within a type.

You can also edit your default creative linkcodes with the Linkcode Settings available on any of the creative pages. This lets you change how each linkcode is displayed (between encoded, un-encoded, shortname, and tiny), what campaign they're associated with, and what offer they point to.

Your Affiliate Linkcodes will be shown in the creatives table (when available), next to each creative. Keep in mind, however, that not every creative type offered in NATS For Networks provides you with linkcodes. For more information on the linkcode settings feature offered here, please see our Linkcode Settings wiki article.

Searching Your Creatives

You'll find a variety of search options at the top of each affiliate creatives table, in order to help you find specific creatives. Use these to search through your creatives by criteria such as name, when they were added, the creative type, content type, page location, number of items, and creative height/width, depending on what creative type you're searching through.

Each creative type offered in NATS For Networks has different search options, which differ based on the creative type you're looking at. However, the actions that you can take on these different search options are similar. Just use the provided drop-down menus, search fields, and action links to find specific creatives of a certain type.

The Affiliate Image Banner Table

Fill in your desired search criteria, then click the "Search <Creative Type>" button on the right side of the page. Once you do, your creative list will be updated to reflect the search criteria you chose.

You'll also find several "View as:" icons on each page of creative types, which let you change how these creatives will be displayed to you. You can choose to view the standard table view, a full size image dump view, an RSS feed view, a CSV dump view, and/or an XML dump view, depending on the creative type you're viewing. Just click any of the available icons to change your affiliate creative view.

The Affiliate Creatives 'View As' Icons

The provided hyperlinks on the right side of the creatives table allows affiliates to perform certain actions on each respective creative, such as getting your Affiliate Linkcodes to that creative, or downloading a .ZIP file of that creative. These actions let you begin promoting with your chosen creative -- simply click the provided link to perform the listed action.
