Amazon launched its widget program so associates can add them to Web pages and collect referral fees.
In an email to Amazon Associates Friday, folks that collect a referral fee for sending sales Amazon's way, the company outlined widgets. Amazon also highlighted the widgets in a blog post. The widgets include:
- Slideshow, which allows you to pick images from the Amazon catalog and present and comment on them;
- My Favorites, which allows you to make recommendations;
- QuickLinker, which allows you to link to products directly on Amazon;
- Product Cloud, tag products that are relevant to content on a page;
- And Unbox Video Previewer, which shows titles and new TV and movie releases.
