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 tactics and techniques can easily be learned. No need to go any further or anywhere. They are available online, 24 hours a day and 7 days a week.

The use of product recommendations is one of the more important ways of increasing affiliate marketing bottom line and sales. The experienced Internet marketer knows that when promoting a certain product, this is one of the most effective ways. 

If the customers or visitors trust you enough, thenyour recommendations will definitely be trusted. 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 tend to increase your credibility and make your recommendation more realistic. 

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 believe and feel 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 self-assurance and confidence 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. Prove that what you are promoting works as promised. Display prominent testimonials and endorsements (obey the new rules for testimonials and endorsements) from known and respected personalities, in related fields of course.

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

And remember; prospects are not stupid. They are actually turning into experts and may already know the things that you know. If you back up your claims with data and hard facts they would gladly put down hundreds, or even 1000’s worth of thier money to your promotions. But if you don’t, they are smart enough to try and look at your competitors and what they are offering.

It is also important that you give out promotional freebies, while recommending a product. People are already familiar with the concept of offering freebies to promoting your own 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 services and products. Just think how long it took you to build credibility and trust among your visitors. One big mistake on your part is all that it will take to destroy it.

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 .
