Affiliate decisions!

I am creating a photography based website and I have decided to involve some affiliate marketing on some of my pages. I have currently signed up with click-bank and Amazon (US)/(UK).

This has brought me to a cross roads - should I have American affiliate banners or English. Amozon.com which is American ($) seems to have far more choice for my market (photography) than the UK/European Amazon site (£).

From your expertise and knowledge of the World Wide Web do you think that I would make more revenue if I was to focus on an the American market (having everything in dollars) than I would having everything in sterling (£)

I know it’s a tough one to call but I don’t know who to ask for this kind of info - I am a UK citizen by the way. The impression I get is that the British are still too weary about the web; all I hear is how unsafe it is. Would I be right in thinking that the people of America are far more involved when it comes to ecommerce and so I should concentrate my efforts towards them. Is this possible living in the UK?

Any points would be gratefully accepted

Kind regards

Hi Stewart

I can't comment on this with very much authority, although I suspect your hunch about the American market having more potential is correct.

Hopefully some other forum members with more experience on this issue can join in.

You would also be getting paid in dollars- I presume, so this could affect your bottom line as the currency fluctuates , which it tends to do.
