Although there are many tried and true affiliate marketing strategies you can use to promote your affiliate products; recommending products can increase your affiliate earnings substantially.

Evaluating and recommending products on your website or blog, is an effective technique you can use to lead your visitors to buy a specific affiliate product of your choosing.

Many marketers realize that recommending products can increase your affiliate earnings much more effectively when your customer base already trusts your veracity.

The only downside to using this marketing strategy, is that your credibility can be lost or substantially diminished, if you start recommending too many products to your customers.

This is especially true, if your recommendations become too exaggerated, or if they do not appear to have much merit in the eyes of your readers.

Avoid hype at all costs when recommending products.

More likely than not, your customers will  follow your product recommendations if you are careful and judicious using this approach.

If your visitors are really interested in your offer; they will be more than happy to learn about the benefits of the product, as well as the good and bad points of the product.

If you dislike something about the product or service you are recommending, don’t hesitate mentioning it. No product or service is ever perfect or beyond criticism.

In the long run, your recommendations will carry more weight, if you honestly point out the pros and cons of a product or service.  And your credibility, if anything, will be enhanced.

Remember, when your customers trust you; they will trust your recommendations.

Recommending products can increase your affiliate earnings more effectively if you remember a few of these things.

  • When recommending products, exude confidence.  Act and sound like you are the leading expert in your field.

When you sound self assured and confident, your visitors are more likely to purchase your products.

Instill confidence, self assuredness, and trust with your audience, and remember that the resistance to price, diminishes in direct proportion to the amount of trust you instill.

  • Offer proof that your product or service works as described.  Use testimonials or endorsements to confirm your recommendations.
  • Avoid hype.
  • Back up your claims with cold hard facts and your visitors will pay for your promotions.
  • Offer a freebie that promotes or explains the product or service you are recommending to your audience.

The concept of giving away free promotional information is not new but few marketers do it with affiliate products.

Remember recommending products can increase your affiliate earnings when done properly.
