Utilize a Merchants Datafeed
Make a Page Tool
One great example of the tools available is the ShareASale Make a Page Tool. With this tool you can create fantastic widgets – similar to the Amazon widgets we’ve all seen – that can be inserted into any page, blog post or gift guide that accepts html.
The Make a Page Tool utilizes the merchant’s data feed, so with this tool you have access to all of the products that the merchant makes available via their datafeed. This allows you to create very content specific widgets that feature a specific product you may be talking about in a blog post or gift guide post!

Product Discovery Tool
Another tool that you may find extremely useful is the ShareASale Product Discovery Tool. The title is a little deceiving. This tool actually allows you to set up a very cool looking widget directly from the Merchant’s website.
So if you find a product while you are browsing the merchant’s website that you’d like to include in a blog post, you can utilize this tool to create a great looking widget that can be inserted – complete with your affiliate link – directly into your blog post or gift guide.

One final tool that also utilizes a merchant’s data feed is the ShareASale Product Showcase. With this particular tool, you can set up dynamic banner ad’s in various sizes that you can implement into your blog posts. These ad’s can feature one merchant or multiple merchants products – making them very flexible. It also records vital statistics like hits, sales, commissions and impressions on daily and monthly basis.

Hopefully this gives you some great ideas on how you can use these tools to implement products from a merchant’s data feed for directly from the merchant site. When you use tools like this to display targeted products within highly relevant blog posts, you are much more likely to see sales – as opposed to using general links to the merchant’s site.
