Text2Store Widget: Viral Coupons
Text2Store, a "mobile coupon" service that we have covered at Website Magazine before (I also mentioned them in my recent keynote at the Affiliate Convention), has released the Deal Badge Widget, essentially an affiliate sales program built around widget technology. It's an innovative approach that's creating quite a buzz. The widget can be added to any website or weblog and can even be included in a MySpace profile. Each Deal Badge can contain up to 100 exclusive deals/coupons and affiliates can add as many categories of product they want and let visitors forward "deals" to their cell phone (or their friends cell phone) for later use at the retailer's website or local store. The best part? The revenue share is 25%.
