In a previous post I announced my new affiliate 101 plugin. Part of the reason behind this was to reproduce some of the functionality offered by the site Easy Content Units – check it out here. But don’t get me wrong, this post is here to celebrate ECU and recommend it to beginners looking for an easy way to integrate feeds into their site!
That content unit took about 1 min to make! ECU allows you to import products from loads of merchants from all the popular affiliate networks (CJ, Amazon, Affiliate Window, etc). You get to customise the look and feel of the unit and they manage all the updating for you so the unit always has the latest details.
I am not aware of anything else quite like it, it works, it is reasonably priced and worth the money if you are unable to code something like this yourself. And probably still worth a look even if you are capable!
I on the other hand, enjoy the coding more than running sites, so this lead to…
Not so easy content units!
As mentioned above, my new plugin will eventually include not so easy content units, I am currently prototyping some code offline but hope to run my first online tests in the next week or two! This plugin will be great for those looking for a little more control, are happy maintaining their own product database (or rather letting the plugin maintain it!) and don’t want to pay for it!
