Starting from today, all Advicenode applications can be integrated with almost all the services on the web. Such an integration can be done without writing a single line of code. This feature is still beta, but feel free to try it out.
Is the integration with online services worthy?
Integration offers many opportunities to online businesses. As the Internet grew, integrating web-applications became more important for a business to increase its scope and expand its operations. We’ll go through some of those advantages below.
Building a web application isn’t an easy task. It’s very hard to build an application from scratch that do everything the customer needs. So, instead of wasting time on reinventing the wheel, you can rely on the existing online services and focus on what you’re good at. This will lead to faster time-to-market and will save you lot of time and efforts. This way, you can start from where the people are and build on what they have.
More data means better advice and decisions
If you’re building a software bot, then its integration with online services will be quite worthy. Instead of building and maintaining your own data repository, you can just integrate your bot with any online service that provides this data. In many cases, bots can depend on very dynamic data like forex, stock performance, product prices, weather conditions, etc. Maintaining this type of data is nearly impossible without integration with third parties.
Take advantage of partnership programs
Many online service providers have partnership programs. These programs can make you sell their products for less price than what they offer. So, instead of having a complete infrastructure for selling those products, you can resell others’ products and get a quick and risk-free profit! There’re other programs based on commissions. For example, if you can refer a paying user to an online shop, it will pay you a part of his/her purchases. Online giants like Amazon, eBay, Booking.com, Uber, and many others have this program.
So, how to be a partner with other service providers?
Most service providers have a page for partnership programs. For example, you can use Amazon partnership page to apply for partner account. If it got approved, you will need to get a sample for every request you may send from this page. Afterwards, you can copy/paste those samples in Advicenode and it will do the rest for you. If you followed the guide, it will take only few minutes to be up and running.
