It might be snowing and incredibly cold in London (where I’m writing this piece), but that hasn’t stopped me from serving up a collection of this week’s hottest new social media tools and platforms.
And this week’s post gets a “green” theme, as in money.
1. Create your own online store filled with products you love with Styleowner.com.
In the week Pinterest was fingered for monetizing its links, you might want to check out its more overt competitor, Styleowner.com. This is the latest in an increasingly long line of communities that reward your content discovery, curation, and recommendations. Watch this one.
2. Create you own Facebook store (and more) with Tabjuice.com.
Keeping with our monetization theme, Tabjuice gives you the pieces you need to sell your products through Facebook (at a fraction of the cost of a bespoke build) with some robust analytics integrated on the back-end. What are you waiting for?!
3. Hop on board the hottest content monetization platform of the week, Skiminks.com.
This solution places some basic code into your blog or website template and then crawls your content to add affiliate links to products you mention. It creates a win/win/win situation for everyone. For more on Skimlinks and similar products, check out this post
4. Make your content curation efforts for targeted ads more efficient with Percolate.com.
While this one directly generate revenue for you, it will make discovering the most suitable content for your communities a helluva lot easier. Percolate is still in an “invite-only” beta for at the moment, but luckily for you, we have some invites to dish out. Get your daily brew here
5. Say hello to a “Pinterest for the design community” thanks to Fab.com.
If you are inspired by design, you will go bananas for Fab.com. Other passionate community members track down great design-related products, which you can share or buy depending on how much you love them.
