Going to talk about one of the coolest blogging tools available. If you are selling Amazon or Zazzle products, Easy Product Displays is awesome. I use to code my products by hand back in the day then I starting using the Squidoo to Zazzle tool (obsolete now) for most of my product coding. Still, I needed something a little more streamlined and I found the Item Box Builder and I thought it was a real time saver. I used it daily for months until something happened.....
Someone came along and blew it out the box with another tool!! This tool is so awesome I literally don't know what I would do without it. I use it on a daily basis for all my product html. It makes my products B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L!
So what is this amazing product coding tool?
The Gist of It
- Paid tool $5.99 a month
- Imports data from Amazon and Zazzle without having to leave the site.
- Stores your affiliate ID's from Amazon and Zazzle for you.
- Works in WordPress, Weebly (and similar sites)
- There are dozens of ways to display one product or multiple products.
- Import old code and edit it.
- The code fits the width of any screen.
- Pre-loaded "buy" buttons.
- Online support is terrific.
What I Like About EPD
The best part for me is that it imports the amazon products in the same screen and adds my affiliate ID to it automatically (after I enter the information in the profile editor). Until you have manually inputted your information a million times, you can't understand the value of a tool that imports everything for you in the same screen you are working in.
With EPD there are a lot of ways to display a single product or multiple products. EPD adds custom borders and buttons to make your displays look professional. You can also match the exact colors of your website or blog this way. There are pre-loaded "buy" buttons or you can add your own.
You can add title tags, no-follow code and the target_blank code that opens your product in a new window.
I find everything very self explanatory on EPD for the most part. It's a well-organized site.
You can use the product on popular sites like WordPress, Weebly, RedGage and most other sites that accept html.
The support team on Facebook is good. Questions, concerns and updates are voiced and answered quickly.
There is a monthly fee associated with EPD. What? I like that!? Yes, I do. That means that the owner is going to take better care of his customers and the site. Six bucks is really nothing. The cost is minimal compared to the hours it saves me. It's one of the coolest blogging tools for someone who has products displayed in their blog (especially from Amazon or Zazzle).
What I Don't Like About EPD
This is a tough one, personal stuff aside, I love the product and have found it to be something I cannot live without. It saves me so much time that I really can't think of something that I don't like about the product. It's a good product.
Sometimes there are glitches in the website, a few minor hiccups. This is a fairly new project so it's understandable. Because it is new, that makes me nervous, I hope that it sticks around a long, long time because I use it on almost all my webpages.
There is a referral program that pays you a percentage of the earnings if your referral signs up.
If you do decide to sign up, you can sign up under my affiliate ID (thank you in advance *wink*). There are banners with the code built right in so you can share your affiliate ID easily on websites or blog posts.
