Hi, Hope it's okay to post in this section - there doesn't seem to be a place for business other than start-up.
We run a small family business (manufacture and retail of quality dog wear including some fairly niche products) - previously we attended dog shows etc but we are now trying to increase online sales to fit in with family/school age children.
We have tried google adwords - haven't been a huge success to date but obviously every impression our ads get helps to build awareness for the future. However, I have heard about people using affiliate marketing and wondered if it is worth trying. We don't have a presence outside of the UK but through Amazon and our own website we do sell certain products in USA and Australia. I thought if we had affiliates in those countries it might increase sales. I know there are a few affiliate companies out there such as Affiliate Window but not sure if anyone has used affiliates in the past and can share their experiences - whether it was worth doing since obviously the affiliate needs a payment from each sale and I guess the affiliate company takes a share too.
Anyone tried it? Any tips/experiences much appreciated. Thanks again Mollie
