Amazon’s Your Ideas List: A New Way To Share Shopping Lists

Amazon Your Ideas List

A new, quietly launched feature on Amazon — Amazon Your Ideas List — lets anyone create Pinterest-like illustrated wish lists they can share with friends and followers.

Amazon Your Ideas List can be accessed just like a normal Amazon wish list or shopping list, with one big difference: Each list is organized into graphic grids, similar to Pinterest, and can be shared with your network via a unique URL.

This is great news for small businesses and affiliate marketers.

Amazon Your Ideas List: How It Works

One great example of Your Idea List’s potential comes from entrepreneur Hiten Shah. Over at Product Hunt, Shah posted his sample Your Ideas List board.

Shah’s board, “Books for Product People,” is filled with books about design, marketing, and product launches.

Any user can visit a Your Ideas List, heart and bookmark a product, or explore the board for suggestions and inspirations.

You can keep an Your Ideas List in draft, and publish and share anytime you want.

Amazon Your Ideas List: Why It’s Good

From a user’s perspective, Your Ideas List seems a bit like across between an Amazon Wish List and a Pinterest board. Like a Wish List, a Your Ideas List can be shared for other people (whether they’re friends or strangers!) to browse. Like a Pinterest board, it’s organized in a visual manner and looks good on a smartphone.

For Amazon affiliates, who make extra money or income streams through the Amazon affiliates program, Your Ideas List offers two big advantages:

  • It’s easy to create attractive, curated lists of items to buy through Amazon that fit your brand identity.
  • Using Your Ideas List streamlines the process of marketing items with Amazon affiliate links.
