E-Commerce Blog Widget – Sell Directly From Your Blog
Most of our customers use Early Impact’s Product Cart for their e-commerce. Product Cart, while a really boring (but obvious) name, is an incredibly powerful e-commerce shopping cart that we are proud to be certified developers for here at NetSource Technologies.
Earlier this year with the release of Product Cart v3.051, the shopping cart now includes an e-commerce blog widget. This widget can be generated from the shopping cart’s adminstrative control panel. If you’re not familiar with blog widgets, they are simply extra bits of functionality that you can add to a blog.
To quote Early Impacts Wiki site:
The ProductCart E-Commerce Widget allows you to take selected products you have for sale on your ProductCart-powered store and have them show up on your blog, other Web sites, or even social networking pages. The process only takes minutes, and it can be an effective way to easily market your products.
Take note of the “selected products” text from the quote above. This widget is not intended to be a full fledged version of your shopping cart on your blog, as it won’t be. However, if you have a blog to promote your e-commerce store, now you can blog about a particular item and generate an e-commerce widget to sell the product directly from your blog. Instant impulse buy!
Now that’s pretty cool!
