A Review of the Lillian Vernon Income Opportunity

Sep 15, 2008
Lillian Vernon is an affiliate network. What is an affiliate network? This is a network that allows you to have a website to earn money on the companies product by placing a special merchant link for your customers to go to. Once they are taken to the Lillian Vernon website through your website, and they purchase a product, you are given a commission on that sale.

You can get the link and a banner through most merchant services online such as Commission Junction. And you are thinking, why do I want to have a Lillian Vernon link on my website? To answer that question I will tell you what this company's website offers.

They are one of the leading catalogs that specialize in unique gifts, items for gardening, household décor, kitchen tools and supplies as well as décor, holiday and children's products.

The Lillian Vernon Company has been around for over 56 years. The company has also offered a household name for as many years as I can remember. It was always fun to browse through it and see things that you can't really find anywhere else. That cool blanket with your name on it, or the bookshelf made out of your name. They have some amazing gift ideas and they aren't very expensive.

To review the affiliate benefits:

1. Household name brand
2. Over 6,000 products to sell
3. Up to 8% in referral fees
4. VIP commissions
5. 30 day return policy
6. Quarterly sales incentives
7. Monthly newsletters with coupons and promotions

The referral fee is paid to you every time someone clicks on the link from your website, they are directed to the Lillian Vernon website. If they make a purchase, you earn a referral fee. As the sales volume increases, so do your referral fees percentages.

The Lillian Vernon company is very proud of their most recent achievement of reaching rank #66 of the top 100 Retail Websites.

The company carries three catalog titles:

1. Lillian Vernon

Personalized gifts of almost anything you can imagine. You can have you own beautiful thermos jug with your name engraved on it for under $10.00. There are gifts for "him", for "her", for the "teacher", for "pets", how about "grandparents", and can't forget the "kids".

2. Lilly's Kids

These are items including, but not limited to bedding and décor, bath time, school and backpacks, newborn and infant, and Lilly's toy box.

3. The Big Sale Catalog

This part of the site, or catalog, has sales up to 85%.

The company is located in Virginia Beach VA on 62 acres. Their facility there takes up the space of about 18 football fields. They shipped more than 3.3 million packages in the year 2006. Since 1951, there have been more than 130 million orders shipped out. They have over 3,000 employees and they work all year round.

The company's trademark was offering personalized gifts, with one of the largest personalization departments in America. They offer 14 different kinds of personalization, all at a reasonable cost.

So, the question now is, do you have a website that would be able to draw customers that would be interested in these products? If so, this would be a great affiliate opportunity to add to your current portfolio.
