ShopStyle Collective is an influencer and blogger affiliate network, allowing influencers to monetize their content and grow their brand via different tools, like widgets, to display product images with embedded affiliate links.
They used to have a pay-per-click model, but have since switched to what they call the ShopStyle Collective CPA program, where you earn a percentage commission of the sales you drive through ShopStyle Collective, rather than pay-per-click earnings.
Once you've created your account, start creating widgets by clicking Create a New Product Widget from the homepage dashboard.
Step 1: Select Items
From the search box at the top, search for the name of the product you're looking for or use the filters on the left to search by retailer, brand, etc. Once you've found a product, hover over the image and click Add to Widget. Click Next once you've added all your products.
Step 2: Customize
Once you've added your products, give your widget a name, such as "Shop My Cole Haan Collection." From the Customize screen you can also reorder them and choose what content you want to display within the widget, such as the brand and product name or the name of the retailer where you can find the product. Click Publish once complete.
Step 3: Publish
Lastly, it's time to add the widget to your blog post. From the Embed on a Blog or Website Section, click Copy Embed Code. Then head over to your website, edit your blog post, and embed the code.
I use Wix to build my website/blog. From within a Wix blog post, click Insert HTML Code and paste the code to embed the widget.
Once complete, Save/Publish your post and you'll see the products appear within the blog post. To see it in action, here's the corresponding blog post for the picture below!
Step 4: Begin Monetizing your blog by Completing your Application
When you first create your account, it will be in Demo Mode. Select Complete Application in the upper-right hand corner of your account to complete the application in-full and start earning money.
