Online fashion retailer ASOS has recorded some impressive results for the 12 months to March 31, 2007, and has seen sales rise by 85% over the last three months.
Year on year, ASOS reported a rise in profits of 116% to £42.6m, while pre-tax profits grew by 144% to £3.4m. In addition, its customers’ average order values increased from £39.32 to £43.80 in the same period.
ASOS also reported that it has been receiving around 2m visitors per month to its website, which is primarily aimed at 18 to 34 year olds.
ASOS CEO Nick Robertson recently courted controversy by infamously labelling affiliate marketers as ‘grubby little people in grubby studios growing income at our expense’.
He later clarified these comments in an interview with E-consultancy, saying his comments were aimed at ‘unscrupulous’ affiliates rather than the affiliate marketing community as a whole.
