Product recommendation...to increase your affiliate income

Oct 6th 2010 at 7:00 PM

The use of product recommendation to increase your income has moved to the forefront in affiliate marketing... at least so it seems. If you've been wanting to learn more about it, here's is your chance.

In affiliate marketing there are many ways you can use to increase your income and maintain the trust that you've already earned, Most of the techniques can be easily done, with no need to go anywhere and learn further. They are online and easily available 24 hours a day 7 days a week.

One more way of increasing your income and sale through affiliate marketing is by using product recommendations. If the customers trust you enough, then they will undoubtably trust your  recommendations. But, be very careful of this approach. If you start promoting everything by recommendations your credibility will finally begin to wear thin when recommendations seemed hyped and without truth.

Do not be afraid to mention things you don't like about the product. Rather than losing trust this will bolster your credibility. And, if your visitors are really interested in the product they will be more than happy to learn about the good and bad side of the product and also how it will benefit them.

Also, there are certain things to remember on how recommendations work effectively to your advantage...
Sound like the leading expert in your field. If you are seen as the expert in your niche your visitors are more inclined to make the purchase. Otherwise they'll go somewhere else.

Prominent display of testimonial and endorsements  from other customers also serve good for recommendations. Avoid hype at all costs. It's better to sound low key and confident.

While recommending a product it is also important that you give out bonus complementory to the product you are selling. This will ensure that the customers buy from you rather than buying from your competition.

Finally, before you get into recommending products you should have knowledge of the product. You should either get an evaluation copy or buy the product yourself. Do not take the risk of recommending junk. Remember how long it took to build your credibility and trust with your visitors.
