I am currently working on Commission Junctionâ€™s Web Services. CJ has delivered APIs and resources for both publishers and advertisers to tap directly into the affiliate platform and wealth of data. Working on the various web services projects has been amazing as it puts me in contact of the true innovators in internet marketing and gives me experience with leading edge technology for the affiliate marketing space. Please check out the Commission Junction Web Services developer site for more information.
Another fantastic part of working with web services is that I get to check out and benchmark the technologies, applications, developer resources, and business policies that other internet platforms and marketers have delivered. For the next several weeks, I am going to be reviewing some of the web services leaders and innovators. I will also show off some of the cool applications that are being designed using these APIs.
I am not going to start off with the Commission Junction APIs. That would cut too close to home right now. Besides, there are plenty of other blogs currently covering our web services. So to kick the series off, I will discuss the eBay Developer Program in my upcoming posts. I went to eBay Devcon 2007 about a month ago and learned a ton about the how, what and why eBay uses web services to propel their ecommerce platform. Here we go!
