    What's next?
    Hi Everyone,

    I was just wondering what your thoughts were on the future of commerce online and us affilliates.

    When the net first started in about '96 ... sex and porn were huge! Ebay and Amazon also were pretty big.

    Now that people are starting to trust in purchasing online, they are buying LOTS of stuff and that's where we come in.

    What do you think is next?

    Products? Services? Other....

    For the general consumer I think products will still be big. And I think those other biggies, sex, eBay, and Amazon, won't be shrinking either...

    Interesting. And comforting to know we do not yet have to adapt to a new market just yet.

    Post After sex & porn....
    Clothing once again remained the most popular purchase, as consumers shelled out $3.8 billion, or 16 percent of total online sales for merchandise. The toy/video game market, much like in traditional stores, was a big holiday seller, accounting for $2.5 billion, or 11 percent of online revenue. The electronics category rounded out the top three with $2.3 billion, or 10 percent of total of online sales.

    Hi Adam,

    Do you have any idea what type of clothing?

    Meaning do they go to specific brand-name stores and buy there or do most just search for 'socks' or 'bathing suits' etc...

    I'm no expert on shopping habits but I think that there are a few MALL sites with a strong following.
    Connie [who visits here from time to time] has reported that she gets 90%+ of her traffic from bookmarks to her MALL site/sites.
