Sugar Inc. just made blogging about a desired pair of designer heels or a favorite mascara a little bit sweeter with the introduction of ShopSense, a free affiliate program that allows participants to earn money by featuring fashion, beauty, home and
children’s products and links from ShopStyle in their blogs, websites, and other applications. Following the company’s launch of the OnSugar blogging platform and ShopStyle API last month, Sugar Inc. is the only media company to completely integrate an affiliate program directly into its blogging platform.
ShopSense offers bloggers, regardless of the platform they use, the opportunity to generate income for the traffic they send retailers when featuring ShopStyle products, links and widgets on their site. With access to ShopStyle’s catalog of more than 500,000 products from the world’s leading fashion, beauty, home and kids retailers, bloggers can create myriad posts featuring the items they desire. Bloggers with OnSugar sites can easily sign up for a ShopSense account through their Profile page and have direct access to ShopStyle images and captions without leaving OnSugar, making it simple to begin monetizing their sites. Non-OnSugar bloggers can sign up for a ShopSense account at www.shopstyle.com and immediately begin adding ShopSense-enabled products and widgets to their own sites and applications.
