Using Product Recommendations To Increase Your Bottom Line

In affiliate marketing, there are many ways in which you can increase your earnings and maintain the account that you have worked so hard for already. Most of the techniques and tactics can be learned easily. No need to go anywhere and any further. They are available online, 24 hours a day and 7 days a week.

One of the more important ways of increasing affiliate marketing bottom line and sale is through the use of product recommendations. Many marketers know that this is one of the most effective ways in promoting a certain product.

Using Product Recommendations To Increase Your Bottom Line

If the customers or visitors trust you enough, then they will definitely trust your recommendations. Be very careful in using this approach, though. If you start promoting everything by recommendation, your credibility will actually wear thin. This is seen especially when recommendations are seemingly exaggerated and without much merit.

Do not be afraid to mention things that you do not like about a given product or service. Rather than lose any points for you, this will make your recommendation more realistic and will tend to increase your credibility.

Furthermore, if your visitors are really interested in what you are offering, they will be more than delighted to learn what is good about the product, what is not so good, and how the product will benefit them.

When you are recommending a certain product, there are some things to remember on how to make it work effectively and for your advantage.

Sound like the true and leading expert in your field.

Remember this simple equation: Price resistance diminishes in direct proportion to trust. If your visitors feel and believe that you are an expert in your niche, they are more inclined to making that purchase. On the other hand, if you are not exuding any confidence and self-assurance in endorsing your products, they will probably feel that same way and will go in search of another product or service which is more believable.

How do you establish this aura of expertise? By offering unique and new solutions they would not get anywhere else. Show proof that what you are promoting works as promised. Display prominent testimonials and endorsements from respected and known personalities, in related fields of course.

Avoid hype at all costs. It is better to sound low key and confident, than to scream and seek attention. Besides, you would not want to sound unprofessional and have that thinking stick to your potential customers and clients, now would you? Best to appear cool and self-assured at the same time.

And remember; prospects are not stupid. They are actually turning to experts and may already know the things that you know. If you back up your claims with hard facts and data, they would gladly put down hundreds, or even thousands worth of money to your promotions. But if you dont, they are smart enough to try and look at your competitors and what they are offering.

While recommending a product, it is also important that you give out promotional freebies. People are already familiar with the concept of offering freebies to promoting your won products. But very few people do this to promote affiliate products. Try to offer freebies that can promote or even have some information about your products or services.

Before you add recommendations to you product, it is given that you should try and test the product and support. Do not run the risk of promoting junk products and services. Just think how long it took you to build credibility and trust among your visitors. All that will take to destroy it is one big mistake on your part.

If possible, have recommendations of products that you have 100% confidence in. Test the product support before you begin to ensure that the people you are referring it to would not be left high and dry when a problem suddenly arouse.

Have a look at your affiliate market and look at the strategies you are using. You may not be focusing on the recommendations that your products need to have. You plan of action is sometimes not the only thing that is making your program works.

Try product recommendation and be among those few who have proven its worth.

The ABC of Blogging

The ABC of Blogging

The ABC of Blogging

When blogs first came out, they were typically used by people for updating their family and friends about various aspects of the blogger’s lives. While some people still use blogs for that purpose, a lot of people have found a way to make good money through blogs. They have found a way to make the search engines work for them and cash in from their visitors. However, it is next to impossible to make money with a blog unless you have a good blogging guide to help you along the way.

The ABC of Blogging

Okay, so what does it mean when I say bloggers “make search engines work for them”? That’s a fair question; allow me to explain. Search engines are in the business of making money. And the way they make the most money is by providing results that relevant to to the people using them. After all, if they didn’t return useful results, then people would simply go to a competing search engine to conduct their searches. The other thing they thrive on is fresh content because that’s what people are generally interested in. Blogs provide the best of both worlds: they are focused on a single topic, so there is built-in relevancy; they are updated frequently, so freshness is there as well.

A good blogging guide will show you how to make the most of both of these factors, plus another which we will get to shortly. When you are able to provide fresh and relevant content, your blog will start climbing higher in the search results. This is a good thing as most people will try searching with different words instead of digging too deep into the search results. If you can get on the first three pages of results, you have a chance to generate some decent organic traffic. The first page of results is even better, and the first one or two positions on page one are ideal.

So, now you know how important traffic is, and the general concept of how to get it. Now on to the other thing a good blogging guide will show you…how to make money with your blog. In other words, how to turn the traffic you get into a source of income. There are a few different ways you can make money with a blog, but it all comes back to treating blogging like a business.

One of the most important things you can do is buy your own domain name and hosting. While you can use free platforms like Blogger and WordPress, you still need to host them on your own site and pay for a domain name (such as www.nameoyourblog.com). Not only will it look more professional and give you more credibility, it will also give you more control over your content. See, if you use a free service, and host your blog with them using the free domain, they can delete your blog without warning. I don’t say that to scare you, but rather to stress the importance of hosting it yourself.
