www.yoox.co.uk and www.yoox.com affiliate program was with TradeDoubler and then it moved to Affiliate Window. Of course by then we'd been promoting Yoox for years, and it seemed perfectly rational to suppose that Yoox would simply get the links switched over. Unfortunately this isn't what happened, and they said "the site does not compliment the Yoox brand". Now what they mean is that it doesn't complement the brand. Such mild illiteracy can be forgiven especially if they haven't read about the difference between compliment and complement. Nevertheless refusing an affiliate that's been promoting them for years is a bit crass really, especially considering "Good fashion is timeless and doesn't expire with the trends". Good affiliate marketing doesn't expire with the trends either, unlike the Yoox banners which Yoox themselves seem to think are now passť. Well I wouldn't mind changing them if Yoox were to be sensible and to accept this site on their affiliate program. In time meantime it's bunged up and if you want to visit Yoox you can type in the url which is www.yoox.com . Note that it is anyone's prerogative to miss out if they so choose. However I think that in the case of Yoox they have been a bit naive in their assumptions about Internet things. The page remains because of this site has a sensible deep linking policy.
Plenty of other places in the Fashion business are promoted here, and a great many of them do well. This is a website that promotes alternative fashion and alternative markets as well as more mainstream places. Diversity is rich.
Well, I hope Yoox will see the good sense of resuming having this affiliate on their affiliate program! In the meantime this page waits patiently and with its old banners intact. Let other Fashion prosper in the meantime!
