What’s great about RSS and syndication, as we discussed in Bring it on, is that it’s a great way to put your content anywhere on the web. However, just having a feed isn’t enough. You need to create a widget, so your RSS feed can sit in places like iGoogle, Facebook, or the Vista or Mac dashboard. Problem is that creating a widget is hard to do.

Or at least it used to be. Yourminis has changed all that. Here’s how they describe what they offer: This platform offers a set of re-usable components and an advanced API framework to enable rapid development of widgets, ranging from simple badges to complex miniature applications. Here’s how we describe it: they make making widgets easy. While you will need someone with technical ability to develop the widget (meaning we can dispense with the gory detail), it can be done in less than an hour. Once you have a widget developed, you can put it just about anywhere.

How do we know? Well, we built one just to show you. If you would like a feed growth! widget, here are some options: fg for facebook, fg for iGoogle, fg for Vista, fg for Mac. While this one is quite simple, we’ll be adding sex appeal over time.

If you’re looking for a way to take your site content and evangelize, it’s going to be hard to beat this option for making it happen quickly.

This system doesn’t just make the making easy. It also makes the tracking easy. They provide tools for managing your widget, tracking who’s using it, and, in their words, “executing an effective widget strategy.”

Your best customers really do want to be kept up to date with your latest products, your announcements about special events or promotions. If you create a widget for them, you make it easy to stay on top of everything that’s going on.
