BridaLuxe :: Affiliate Marketing for Wedding Pros

Through Twitter I have recently learned about BridaLuxe, a new niche affiliate marketing network for the wedding industry.  This blog is not a b2c entity so it would not make sense for us to sign on but for many of you out there in wedding-world it just might be an interesting option to monetize your site or blog {only if appropriate and relevant to your content and growth strategy of course!}.

Would love to hear any feedback from those of you who sign up or have been working with them.  In this economy, creating divergent streams of  'passive' income is a smart business strategy as long as it aligns with your brand.  BridaLuxe appears to be headed in the right direction - time will tell!

Thanks so much for your kind words, Rebecca! We're working hard to help both merchants and affiliates find success in the wedding industry. And you're right, our storefront tool is a great way for bloggers to increase revenues without clogging up their site with more advertising. If any of your readers blog on Wordpress or Blogger, we'll gladly do a custom storefront configuration to match their theme. Just have them mention that they heard about Bridaluxe on Weddex and we'll take care of the rest.

It doesn't surprise me that someone of Rebecca's prominence in the wedding industry has discovered Bridaluxe on twitter and wants to tweet it's virtues. I've worked with Jeff of Bridaluxe for many prosperous years. He's a cool guy to know, has a ton of expertise and has been my go-to mentor. (Thanks, Jeff!). And, you just cannot beat the technology and the personal service he provides to every affiliate. Your wish is his command! His character is top notch, so I know I can trust Bridaluxe to always deliver only the best affiliate products in the business. Nothing but the best for teamwedding.com's visitors!

I've used Bridaluxe for several years as well on my site. Their storefront technology was a welcomed addition to my own site and Jeff was great in helping me get the code uploaded and working correctly. Plus, the value of being able to pick and choose products to feature from a variety of different wedding merchants in one spot is wonderful. Definitely a top-notch service.

I am pleased to give a “two thumbs up” for the Bridaluxe program. As a wedding planning blogger and author, I am pleased to say that Bridaluxe has given our site a huge helping hand in both popularity and product recommendations. Their affiliate program is easy to maneuver; they constantly update their vendors and products, and they cater to a specific niche … the wedding industry. Suffice it to say; Bridaluxe is successful because of Jeff James and his crew. They are onboard with you for the long haul. Any problems; questions or needs are quickly answered personally by James and he is “hands on” in helping “you” to be successful. Their real time data feed and Web Services API, allows you to create updated and custom shopping guides which are an asset to any entrepreneur. By far, the best and easiest affiliate program that LaptopBride.com has ever worked with.

More and more people these days are turning to one of the most popular businesses around - the business of affiliate marketing. In this business, there are no bosses, deadlines to meet, or piles of work that have to be finished by the end of the day.

Jeff James has shown that customer relationships are not dead in the era of the internet! Others have already echoed the same sentiments, but Bridaluxe truly is a refreshing company in the world of affiliate marketing, and I was lucky to stumble upon them when first looking for wedding affiliate products. From the weekly email updates, friendly user interface, and personal responses to any questions or concerns, it’s really been a pleasure to set up and manage compared to some alternatives out there. I’m very thankful they’re in the wedding business and glad they’re getting the recognition they deserve!

I work with many affiliate programs, but, Bridaluxe is my favorite. They have a comprehensive and quality group of products and I love that they have such an easy way to add a store to our site. We "seem" so much more professional now and have received a lot of feedback on how great it is.

Targetting a more affluent wedding audience we were immediately drawn to the Bridaluxe platform due to its upscale presentation and quality of e-commerce wedding merchants represented from within. Jeff James appears to be quite selective, as we are, in branding his services to reach the luxury wedding audience. In addition the customization aspects of their storefront is a tremendous advantage. I would highly recommend Bridaluxe to anyone who seeks to expand their own revenue stream in the wedding market.

Great products and terrific affiliate communication and service from Aff Mgr Jeff James makes Bridaluxe a favorite merchant to work with!

Don't think I can really add much to what's already been said. I haven't worked with them nearly as long as the others but am very happy with them. There's a nice selection of products and important to me, a very nice, helpful affiliate manager who is always eager to listen to his affiliates. They've made quite a few improvements to their program even in the short period of time I've been there and believe there's even more ahead.

I only just discovered Bridaluxe recently and am soooo glad I did! I have been wanting to integrate a storefront on my website for a while now and they were the perfect fit. Not too mention Jeff was great in helping me set it up properly. Bridualuxe is a must-have for Every wedding website in my opinion.
Thanx again guys,
