CAKE can assist you when building image creatives for your affiliates. You can either upload the plain image or you can upload the image into an HTML template where your Affiliates can download with the unique CAKE link embedded within the HTML code. You will first want to create the template in your Set Up tab in the Global Settings area of your instance.

Creative Image HTML Template in Set Up> Global Settings






1. Create an HTML template to use for Image Creatives. You will then be given the option to auto-create an HTML file upon creative file upload that contains references to your Image files, using tokens to denote reference placement.

Token structure:
#template_img<0># (or "#template_img#")
#template_img<1>#
#template_img<2>#
...etc.

The image file references will replace numbered tokens based on the order in which they are uploaded to the creative.

2. Create an HTML template to use for Flash Creatives. You will then be given the option to auto-create an HTML file upon creative file upload that contains references to your Flash (swf) file, using a token to denote reference placement.

Token structure:
#template_swf#





Now, when you add an image file to the Creatives tab of the Offer card you will have the option to use the "Include HTML template File" checkbox. When this is checked, your Affiliate will be presented with a full HTML file with the unique CAKE link embedded with the image. Simply upload your image through the Wizard:
