Introducing the LinkConnector Widget, a Powerful Web 2.0 Tool for Affiliates
LinkConnector’s new widget technology brings the latest developments in the online world to Affiliate Marketing.
CARY, NC — April 8, 2008 — LinkConnector (http://www.linkconnector.com/), a leading Affiliate Marketing Network with progressive solutions for merchants and affiliates, recently launched an exciting new tool for its affiliates—the LinkConnector Widget (http://www.linkconnector.com/widget.htm). The new widget allows an affiliate to easily convert their merchant product feeds into an attractive, dynamic widget application. While easy to set up, the widget provides powerful customization capabilities for affiliates, and advanced search features for their users.
One key benefit of the LinkConnector Widget is the ability for an affiliate to adapt their widget to the content of their website. Customization features include custom coloring and sizing, keyword limiting, merchant product feed selection, and a search box for the user. In setting up a widget, an affiliate can preset a keyword search across all available or select merchant product feeds, and display any or all the products and offers relevant to the search term.
LinkConnector’s Widget technology makes it simple to offer product content on blogs and social networks. Bloggers, Facebook, and MySpace users can now provide revenue-producing product content on their pages and participate in the growing world of affiliate marketing. Not only that, but soon content through sources like RSS feeds, coupon feeds and link feeds will be available in LinkConnector’s Widget, allowing users the ability to access not only products, but unique offers and discounts.
The LinkConnector Widget brings a valuable piece of Web 2.0 technology to affiliate marketers. The world of Web 2.0 is recognized as a major trend in web technology that turns the internet into a platform for users to create, collaborate on and share information. Web 2.0 technologies enable user-generated content and rich internet interactions, where users can view and select desired features and alter a website’s appearance to suit their preferences. LinkConnector’s Widget, built around many of these Web 2.0 benefits, is a timely advancement for affiliates. It is a chameleon web tool, fully customizable and user-centric.
“As the online industry grows, more and more people begin to expect rich internet interactions, user-generated content, and advanced technologies like widgets,” said Michele Fuentes, LinkConnector’s Director of Technology. “LinkConnector is dedicated to keeping its affiliates and merchants ahead on the internet’s quickly moving technology curve.”
