I am starting a retail website where I showcase other people's brands through the site. My goal is to basically promote and market these select products, almost like a blog but I want consumers to be able to make purchases through my site. I will not hold any inventory and will have these item's drop shipped.
I am wondering how I am able to either, 1) take a percentage of every product or 2) set up an affiliate marketing site where I redirect consumers to the actual brand's site. What do you guys think is the best way to set this up and do you think it is a smarter move to dropship or make it an affiliate marketing site?
