It seams as every time I decide to login into my Amazon Associate account, I find the new widget. It is not going to be an overstatement to say that Amazon Associate program is doing some amazing things to give their affiliates an upper hand when it comes to promoting Amazon’s products.
The Carousel Widget was introduced on April 11 and if you have not yet done so, I encourage you to take a closer look at this widget. See example below:
This widget embeds nicely inside the WordPress posts as well as in the template or plain html page. While my example above is some what out off place, if you discount the fact that I am an Apple fan, you can find some creative ways to use this widget on variety of websites. Let say you have “recipe blog”. You can use this widget to display your favorite cook books or even kitchen gear and equipment. Just take a look at my wifes latest online adventure- Tip 32. Since we are married I have seen her baking hundreds of cakes and the race car cake is just the latest cake she made for our 7 years old nephew. On the website you will see that she used the Carousel Widget to showcase the products and equipment she used to make the cake. This is just one example of how the widget can be used.
I always had a grudge towards Amazon Associate program over the 24 hour cookie. However there is hardly any other affiliate program out there that can match Amazon when it comes to innovation. Anyway, try the widget for yourself and see if you like it. I think this is one of the best widgets Amazon had recently come up with.
