    So my wife has been an avon lady for some time and does o.k. enough with ot for the effort she puts into it.

    She says they will give her a site like hername.avon.com that takes care of the layout sales etc and they just cut her a check if she makes sales but they charge $8.50 a month for it.

    I googled and avon does their affiliate program with linkshare? It says that they pay 8% commission on sales. 8% does not seem to be alot and it has the added work of having to build a site and talk about avon products on it.

    I am wondering what to do here? Get involved in the linkshare program or just tell her to pay the $8.50 a month and help her optimize it? How they hell do you optimize a hername.avon.com I wonder?

    Do people even buy avon products on line? Christ..

    Much better to go with your own website with linkshare affiliate program. You can sell a lot more products from different networks on your own site.

    So if I go with my own site and Linkshare+ other networks i'll definitely have to create content on my own right? There is no autoblog plugins that just pull in content for affiliate networks?

    Also for domain choices I wouldn't want to tie it to particular product like buyavolononline.us or some shit right? Keep it general like beautyandfashionforless.info to keep it open for other add affiliate networks?

    I will definitely recommend to go with your own website, as:

    1. It is more customizable.
    2. Domain is better than subdomain.
    3. You can experiment with the different companies products (maybe some of them have higher commissions in linkshare or converts better).
