Why display one product when you can showcase several?

What is a Widget?

A widget is a slideshow, collage or grid that allows a publisher to enhance the display of products from joined advertisers on their site. Collages and grids are excellent for grouping complimentary products. Slideshows will allow several different products to be displayed in one IAB unit

Widget Options

The slideshow widget option allows you to easily create rotating displays of products in standard IAB unit sizes. It’s a great way to compliment your site with relevant product ads that convert and influence customers. Once your slideshow is created, you are able to change products in and out of the slideshow via the Widgets tab.

A Collage is an exciting blank canvas on which you can create any type of display that allows users to showcase how products look together in an aesthetically pleasing format. Highlight a Fall collection from your favorite advertiser, show different items from your favorite sports teams together or show an array of different electronic products. Mix and match products in ways that a single product ad cannot. It is your opportunity to have fun and be creative with your products as you are on your website.

Create a whole new page, take over half a page or tab on your website to showcase as many products as you wish. Grids can be customized to many sizes and can rotate if you wish. Once your product display grid is created, you are able to change products in and out of the slideshow via the Widgets tab.
