How to create links from a NetCommunity email to a specific location in Wordpress

When sending out emails/newsletters from NetCommunity containing snapshots of stories, it may be necessary for email recipients to be able to click on a link that will take them directly to the story on a Wordpress site.
IN WORDPRESS
  1. Locate and edit the page that we want our links to take us to
  2. Click on the Text tab
  3. Find the spot on our page where we would like our user to land (where our anchor will be located)
  4. Remember to always use a unique anchor name so that we can have multiple anchors on our pages, if needed
