Affiliates Deck Their Widgets with LinkConnector’s New Seasonal Templates

With LinkConnector’s new widget templates, Affiliates can quickly implement product feeds on their sites, pre-designed with the look and feel of the current season or of a specific merchant.

CARY, NC — December 17, 2008 — LinkConnector (, a leading Affiliate Marketing Network with progressive solutions for merchants and affiliates, announced today that they have enhanced their widget functionality by adding widget templates. LinkConnector’s new widget templates are fully functioning widget applications, but they are pre-coded with specific color schemes, fonts and graphics to display seasonal and merchant-themed backgrounds. All the customization is already in place. Some templates are programmed for the current or upcoming season and others are programmed with the look and feel of a particular merchant. Beyond making product feed implementation even faster and easier, LinkConnector’s attractive new widget templates provide affiliates with fresh, effective marketing tools to boost clicks and conversions.

“With the holiday season upon us, the time when retailers traditionally pull in the biggest portion of sales for the year, LinkConnector’s new widget templates are timely tools. With their fully pre-customized designs, affiliates can implement product feeds, with attractive seasonal treatments, onto their websites with very little effort,” said Michele Fuentes, Director of Technology at LinkConnector. “The power of the new template also extends beyond its ability to quickly power product feeds on an affiliate’s site. We believe these new templates will revive merchant branding and make affiliate programs, overall, more effective.”

LinkConnector currently has developed templates with winter holiday themes as well as multiple merchant-specific themes. The company plans to rapidly expand its breadth of templates over the coming months to include themes for most major holidays and many more LinkConnector merchants. Affiliates are encouraged to frequently check back to keep abreast of the new additions.

LinkConnector added the widget builder to its suite of affiliate technologies back in April. The widget builder allows an affiliate to easily convert their merchant product feeds into an attractive, dynamic widget application. The addition of LinkConnector’s widget templates makes implementation even faster and easier and arms affiliates with seasonally relevant creatives to drive more clicks and sales. The widget template is yet another demonstration of LinkConnector’s commitment to generating new and better affiliate technologies for its customers.
