Triggit – The Bloggers New Best Friend

by Jeremy Schoemaker on January 17, 2008 · 80 comments

TriggitI have been talking to the folks over at Triggit about their new product that is launching today. Its still in early beta but I feel its definitely read to roll. I have been using it for a little bit on this site and I doubt you have even noticed!

So what is Triggit? Well basically it just makes your blogging life easier. It makes it VERY simple to add rich media from YouTube and Flickr to your blog and also (and more attractively makes it SUPER EASY to add links to commission junction and Amazon.

From their press release:

How does Triggit’s technology work?
Triggit’s proprietary patent-pending technology enables website publishers to add content to their sites without writing to the source code of the site. Triggit’s web-based technology enables publishers to use a graphical interface to drag and drop content into their sites. These changes are recorded by Triggit and dynamically served to the client browser. A complete web-based application, Triggit requires no down-loads, and since no changes are made to the source code, there is no need for FTPs or APIs.

That is the one big complaint I have about Amazon is its such a pain in the butt to log in and get my affiliate link for a product… Triggit makes this process SO SIMPLE.

If pictures say a thousand words then I thought this video would say a million ;)

In the video I am going to add links and content to one of the most popular pages on this site which is the movies that motivate me post:

Sorry the video is kind of poor quality… but you can see how effective it is.

AND NOW you can get in on the very limited beta. I got the folks at triggit to give out 100 invites for shoemoney readers. Just use code shoemoney when you signup. Good luck!

3 Denis

Thanks for the opportunity, Jeremy.

Thanks a lot, I got an account

7 bochgoch

I’m just about to add a load of posts with amazon aff links to my cookery blog so the timing couldn’t be better… their blog is worth a read – interesting posts on adding links to old content (which I hadn’t considered doing…)

8 Funny

Good luck Triggit!

9 Farmer

I like it so far. Thanks.

10 Dennis Bjørn Petersen

I would love to try it out.

I’d be very interested in an invite please.

11 Big Oak

Triggit looks very useful.

12 Real Lottery Winner

This looks fun. I wouldn’t have much of a need for the marketing aspect, but since I’m web retarted I could use some of the features! Great find!

13 James Mann

Thanks, I have signed up but only because I trust you. :)

I must agree that your video wasn’t the best, but I will still give it a shot.

14 Shawn

Whao! That is awesome – this is an excellent addition for people who don’t know how to program HTML! I have been hounding my mom to sell her jewelry on a blog, even though blog CMS systems are easy as hell, I know that the whole picture thing would trip her up because she would feel like she didn’t have control.

Triggit is the answer to my dillema! Thanks Shoe!

15 Affiliate Confession

Wow, what a very cool tool. I’ll have to sign up and check it out more closely. Thanks.

16 How To Rule The World

wow i really like the amazon affiliate feature that will allow you to link to a product quickly and easliy and it will put your amazon affiliate code right in the link for you. That is truely an amazing tool. I will be giving this a try. I hope it works, cause if i miss out on a commission cause it makes a mistake, i will be pissed!

17 Catherine Lawson

This does sound worthwhile – I think I’ll give it a go. Just need to practise at actually working the damn camcorder first.

18 Hector

Thanks for the invite code, I still was able to get an account. I’m going to give it a try. It looks very promising.

19 Joe

“but I feel its defiantly read to roll”

Defiantly? As in with opposition? Or Definitely?


20 How To Rule The World

haha joe… i noticed that too. I just didn’t call him out on it LOL

21 MacBook Air

One of the pit falls of being in Affiliate marketing and not being a programmer is the amount of time it can take to setup sites and get your aff links in there. I spend hours logging into different affiliate acounts etc…

This is going to be a killer app – will save me so much time! Thanks for the heads up shoe…

22 Zach Coelius

We are definitely defiantly read to roll. All baby startups like Triggit have to be defiant if we are going to make it…. :)

23 Rodney

Thanks. Place it on my site in less than thirty seconds, and have already started to use it. Thanks.

24 Jeremy Schoemaker

just use the code “shoemoney” on their page

25 Jeremy Schoemaker

grrr trying to do a writeup at 1am when I have a 6am flight to san fran =P

26 Evelyn

Too bad it only works with Firefox. I guess I’ll have to get Firefox now :-)

27 Reverse Funnel System

Sounds like a really good product and very easy to use, intuitive navigaition, i can recomend it to everyone it help me a lot.

28 Harry

Things can never get easy than this.

29 youfoundjake

Thanks for the beta oppurtunity Shoe, I’m curious as to how it will work out on the new layouot of my site I just implemented about 10 minutes ago. heeh

30 Omar Yesid Mariño

Excellent! My wife always is annoying me because she needs my help to update her webpages about movies and she needs to embed You Tube videos, images, etc.
With Triggit now she will be able to do that by herself.

31 David Cooley

Great looking system, any idea how long before you can get an invite?

32 Hustle Strategy

if you have lots going on then this definitely helps. when i as adding books everyday it would take 5-10 minutes to get the link off of amazon…

33 martin Edic

Maybe I’m an idiot but where are the links on the movie post? I didn’t see them…

34 awatson

That’s pretty slick – looking forward to it coming out!

35 Cyrus

Wow, cool demonstration. Thanks!

36 Alan Johnson

And even if you only save 5-10 minutes, it all amounts to something pretty impressive in the long run so that tools such as this one should not be neglected.

37 Alan Johnson

I can understand where you’re coming from since, a lot of times, I feel that the time required for all sorts of tweaks is better spent doing something else, that’s why I also try to outsource as much as I can.

38 Cremation Guy

Great tool, looks like a huge time saver

39 Affiliate Unleashed

The application looks cool but it seems un-needed for adding videos seeing as youtube provides the code…

The CJ / affiliate linking system is pretty neat though.

40 Joe

This will make it HUGELY easier to update my product information blog! Thanks Jeremy!

41 Ken Savage

this site runs WP

42 Ken Savage

why not just do your blogging on the plane? I’ve banged out 9 good posts flying from Boston to San Fran.

43 Popular Wealth

I love that this makes it easier for people to make blogs BUT I hate that this makes it easier to make blogs at the same time. Bloggers need to raise the content quality bar before it gets too low, this makes it easier for the lazy if it gets abused. Nice product though.

44 Brad

Damn the video is not available… im sure all the invites have been snatched up as well ho hum nobody loves the late person to read new blog posts LOL.

45 Brad

ok weird. the video now works from the url so I take that back except the part about 100 invites can I still get one?

46 George Wilson

Thanks Jeremy! this is quite interesting, signed up and will check it out.

47 賃貸 大阪

Do you Opera or Safari?

48 賃貸 大阪

Thanks for getting the invites. It looks pretty easy to use with Wordpress. Thansk for hooking us up.

49 Will

How does something only work for firefox? :(

50 Adam

I’ve always had formatting problems with YouTube and their embed script.

51 Ryan

Sweet!! Thanks!!

52 Harmony

Hi Jeremy!
When I signed up, my username was already taken. So, I tried signing in with that user/pass combo and it worked. Is Trigget connected to and sharing a user database from another program? I thought that was strange, anyway.
Thanks for the app!

53 michael

Triggit is very useful. So simple and easy. :d

54 Blogger Wallpapers

Just signed up, thanks so much for this Shoe Money, I am a SEO and love this new tool you have supplied to me.

55 Tricia

I’ve been using Triggit since sometime in November and I love it. I have no problem hardcoding my sites but Triggit makes adding affiliate links or photos so easy and quick that I’m using it on all my sites rather than taking the time to hardcode.

56 Start Blogging

Thanks for the great tip, man!
I’ll start using it too! It looks like it can save my from a lot of effort!
Great tool!

57 Dennis Bjørn Petersen

Cool. Thank you very much!

58 web proxy

Woo I am loving this!! Thank you shoe for posting this. Each time I add rich media like players from youtube, veoh etc into my blog, and if I were to ever edit it it would break the code causing the player to not display unless I replace it with the original embed code. This sure is gonna come in handy :D

59 SEO Toronto

I signed up for the invite after reading your post, and have hooked it up with my Amazon and CJ accounts. Add this to the fact that I finally discovered Blog Desk a week ago, and I am loving the blogger’s life right now. What an amazing couple of time savers. Many, many thanks for pointing me towards Triggit!

Did anyone else get some funky sounds from the demonstration videos on the triggit site?
