We are looking forward to working closely with our new affiliate partners. Not only is this a financially good business opportunity for them, but they will also have the chance to work with a passionate and original brand which has made a strategic move towards becoming a real online destination store in its own right.
London, England (PRWEB) July 19, 2008
Borders UK announced today it has launched a brand new affiliate programme with UK network Affiliate Window as part of the marketing activity associated with the launch of their new transactional website http://www.borders.co.uk . The affiliate programme will not only provide additional access to the Borders brand online but will also be a valuable revenue stream for the business. Site owners affiliating with Borders.co.uk will have the opportunity to earn revenue in the form of commission on referred sales. The basic commission rate will be 7% on all sales of books, CDs, DVDs and magazines subscriptions, but for the first month Borders is making an introductory offer of 8%.
Claire Bending, online marketing executive for Borders UK, said: "We are looking forward to working closely with our new affiliate partners.

To celebrate the launch of the all-new site, Borders UK has also teamed up with Red Letter Days to offer customers the chance to win A Sports Car Treasure Hunt for Two. Banners for affiliates promoting this fantastic competition, offering the prize-winner (plus a companion) the once in a lifetime chance to drive six amazing sports cars on the open road, are available from the Affiliate Window site.
