Affiliate Marketing & Buying Websites

UPDATE 2014: I’m busy with my own businesses, and not accepting new consultancy gigs for the foreseeable future.

As well as working on my own projects, I work on a handful of consultancy projects.

Why Work With Me?

Unlike many self-appointed experts, I’ve earned a living as a full-time affiliate for nearly seven years.

In short: the bulk of my experience results from putting my own money where my mouth is.

That means I have…

  • Spent $1m+ from my own pocket on AdWords
  • Negotiated six figure website acquisition deals
  • Invested in a portfolio of hundreds of websites & premium domains

Of course, that would mean nothing had it not generated a positive return. I have…

  • Sold £2m+ of kitchen appliances in 12 months
  • Generated c. 2% turnover for one PLC
  • Generated 1,000s new hosting customers every year

Ready To Go?

If you are keen to discuss a project already, please contact me with some specifics. This will, of course, be treated in strictest confidence.

Affiliate Marketing

Retailers face many challenges running an affiliate program. I can advise on how best to address these to maximize incremental revenue generated via your affiliate program.

Launching an affiliate program is often seen as a ‘quick win’. In reality, successful programs require planning, an ongoing investment of staff resources and money and the buy in of other departments of the business.

I can help you lay the foundations of a successful affiliate program, addressing topics such as:

  • Choosing a network
  • Affiliate recruitment
  • Incentivizing dormant affiliates

As well as working as an affiliate, I manage the affiliate program on Affiliate Window.

Buying Websites

Acquiring premium domains or websites in your sector can be an effective way to scale your business.

However, it can be a minefield given the myriad ways to get caught out, from fraudulent revenue claims to the payment process.

I can help you avoid those pitfalls & achieve your goals in a painless, effective manner.

Some of the tasks I’ve helped with include…

  • Tracking down AWOL owners of domains/websites
  • Acquiring affiliate sites/competitors for brands
  • Buying feeder sites for traffic

Not sure if I’m a good fit? I’ll be the first to tell you if someone else is better suited to your project. Drop me a line and let’s find out.

My Background

I have worked in digital media for 11 years. Before starting my own business in 2005, I worked with brands like O2, T-Mobile, Bravo TV and the British Heart Foundation on their web & mobile marketing.

Success Stories

My business has driven many millions of pounds in sales for clients in a wide range of sectors. I’m happy to share specifics on a confidential basis.


Here’s what some of my consultancy clients have said about me…

“Thanks for your help [acquiring a premium domain] – I used a bunch of your advice.”

Will Critchlow, Founder, Distilled

“I had been looking to buy a domain name but was unable to find any contact information even when using Whois. I then spoke with Richard & he came back to me with full contact details including a mobile phone number. I didn’t know this was even possible, awesome service!”

Nicholas Saxlund, CEO, Polemark

Everyone in the industry knows that Richard is the go to guy if you want to buy a website not only has he got the contacts he’s also got the negotiating nous to make sure you don’t pay over the odds. I had the pleasure of working with him on a project recently and couldn’t be more pleased with the work he delivered.

Kelvin Newman, Creative Director, Site Visiblity & linkbuilding author

Faced with a detailed 80 page technical blueprint for a price comparison engine, Richard helped us iterate the project before a single line of code was written.

Mark Tempest, Mpora & DeepNet Media
