Someone on Facebook asked me recently (in response to a post about creating your own ebook) how to create links on Word and I thought it would be a great topic to share with everyone since it is very relevant and it is something I only really figured out recently.
Ok I figured out last year how to insert external links when I wrote the ebook to give away on this website, 10 Secrets for Online Success, then I learned a few days ago how to create internal links on Word which is quite nifty too!
So far I write my ebooks on Word and then convert that to a pdf, so adding your links on Word is quite important.
Create Hyperlink Word
So creating links on Word is actually so easy, and the benefits are huge! Think about it for a minute, if you can link externally from an ebook to your website and your social networks that is quite nifty, but think a little more and you can add in subscribe links for your newsletter and even affiliate links!
Then internal linking (which I still have to implement on an ebook myself) is also really useful. You can create a clickable table of contents, so your readers don’t have to scroll down to that particular page.
You can also create a link to add more information on a topic. Say for example you are using some technical terms, you could have a glossary of terms at the back of the ebook. So if anyone clicks on a term they don’t understand they can easily click through and look up the meaning.
Here is a video I created which will show you how to quickly and easily add both internal and external hyperlinks to your Word document!
