    Smile (2005) Ontario Affiliates/Merchants
    Hi everyone,

    Just wondering if there are any fellow merchants/affiliates on the boards who reside in the Toronto area.

    I know Paul S. (from WonderfulBuys) and I are practically neighbors (and even used to work together once upon a time!) but who else is here hiding out somewhere in the Metro or Greater Toronto areas or anywhere in Ontario?

    Seems like all the Affiliate business in Canada is out on the west coast...

    Hello out there! (Hello out there!)

    Is anyone out there? (Is anyone out there?)

    Guess there are not too many of us on the board who actually live/work in and around the Toronto area then, eh?

    Just thought I'd check in again and so far no responses. Hey Ontarians... if you're out there give us a shout!

    Cheers from Markham, Ontario (aka the Greater Toronto Area),

    I'm in Manitoba, though my day job sometimes takes me to Markam, Mississuaga, or downtown TO.

    Hi Liz,
    I am originally from T.O. and moved out to BC last year. I am sure there are more affiliate and AM's etc. in Ontario than are replying. Maybe it's because this forum is so far down the page...

    Cheers,
    Peter

    Hello, Liz! (Mandy waves furiously)

    I'm out in the wilds of Scarberia, but that's almost Toronto, right? I've been selling online for about 5 years, and just thinking about setting up an affiliate program. It seems like a clear-cut win/win situation, but I'm doing research first. I'd rather do it right the first time than go back and fix it.

    Talk to you later,
    Mandy - who never knew Rugman was Cdn. I've spent a lot of time on your site!

    Hey everyone!

    So glad to know there are more of you out there... and thanks to all (even non-Ontarians) who have replied.

    Mandy, we are indeed in Ontario - but actually in Markham to be exact. So really just north of you - we're in the wilds of markham then. haha

    Ah heck, I pass farms on the way to work (which is kinda nice in the spring, summer, and fall mind you...)!!

    Anyhow, I'm always open to discussion with Affiliates from around the globe but of course keeping close with those who are local is always a bonus.

    Feel free to stay in touch! Mandy, if you have questions (or anyone) please feel free to contact me.

    Best,

    Liz, with all the Canadians we have down here in Florida, I feel like we're practically neighbors. Canadian Snowbirds are due to begin their annual arrival in just a few months. And since all you fine visitors spend while here, we've got no state income tax. So ya'all come down soon!

    I'm from Toronto too! North York actually... Yonge & Steeles area, so not far from Markham at all.

    I agree that a meet of local affiliates and merchants would be fun!

    I moved cause I missed home too much!

    As for a get together, stay tuned, the plans are in the works for Share Results and a few other partners to host a conference in Montreal (not tooooo far from Toronto eh?) and keep your eyes peeled for upcoming announcements in the new year.

    Wow Dan... we're neighbours!

    We probably pass each other in Zellers at Centrepoint and don't even know it! haha

    I live at Bathurst and Drewry, and as I said, I work up here in Markham.

    Hi, Torontonians - and Montrealers, too!
    I posted above as mmctagg, but couldn't remember my login stuff, so re-joined as FindBeads. I'm Mandy from Toronto - wait, that makes 2 of us! I'll use Amanda.

    I am tryuing to decide what to do about expanding my retail/wholesale site. There are so many options available, and not enough time to try them all.

    1) hire someone to operate my inhouse aff program.

    2) scrap my inhouse, and signup with an affiliate manager

    3) figure out how PPC works, and invest money into trial & error tests

    4) believe MoreThanTraffic when they say they can send me $100,000 in sales, for only $200 upfront

    5) become a dropshipper for some eBay powerseller

    How do I decide what to do?

    Amanda

    oh, and Liz? wanna see why I watch your site? The second picture down is one of your older rugs ... http://www.findbeads.com/Start.html the link further down DOES NOT lead to my site. My site is www.FindBeads.com

    Interesting how there is Markham people here. I live at Warden & Hwy 7 area.

    More like Unionville than Markham.

    Hi Amanda,

    This is Liz Gazer here - thanks for posting (and to Paradigm too!).

    I parted ways with Rugman.com in end of March - but I am operating on my own under my own business name now (and open for business!) at Growthspurt Media.

    Let me know if you have any questions about getting your e-commerce biz into high gear, especially in the area of the affiliate program - I'm happy to be of assistance. I'm actually located in the Willowdale area of Toronto now. Not too far...

    All the best!
