Luxury sector uses affiliate marketing

It is interesting to note that brand equity still commands consumer attention, with savvy shoppers no longer seeing the lowest price tag as a definition of value for money (MW 3 November).

This trend is echoed across the LinkShare network, which has seen a growing number of luxury brands running successful affiliate marketing programmes.

Just over a quarter of UK adults and almost half of teenagers own a smartphone, and 70% of these […]
