I spent many summer days as a child attempting to sell lemonade to anyone that passed by. I cannot say it was that lucrative a business and recall spending a lot
of time waiting and waiting for lemonade customers. Aside from a solid
suntan from my hours spent waiting I also learned that lemonade stands
are all about location, location, location. Lemonade has taken the idea of the "lemonade stand" to the Web making it easy to recommend items you like on sites where you already have visitors.
Lemonade enables users to customize the color and contents of a widget which can then be visited directly or added to Facebook, Blogger, Vox and AOL's People Connection. When purchases are made through your lemonade stand widget, you receive 5% to 15% of the cost of the item that was purchased. I created a quick lemonade stand and have embedded it below.
Lemonade reminds me a little of the AdaptiveBlue widget which makes it easy to recommend Amazon items and Ztail which makes it easy to create your own web store online. If you are looking to get into the lemonade stand business you might want to try the online version instead - it could save you some time outside waiting for people passing by.
