How To Recommend Your Way To Profits
My uncle sat at the kitchen table with a perplexed look on his face, in a state of total shock.
He tried to open his mouth to ask a question, but despite his best effort, all that came out was an incoherent response.
I had just explained to my uncle the concept of "recommendation marketing", which basically left him speechless.
The aftermath wasn't a pretty sight.
It was comical seeing this usually well spoken man, who seemed to have an opinion on everything (especially other people's business), stricken speechless.
I am not afraid to admit I reveled in the moment.
He couldn't believe how much I made each month, by simply recommending high quality products and services to my customers.
What really blew him away, was when I revealed that it only took me an hour to set everything up, and I continue to make this residual income each and every month.
If I choose to go and play ice hockey, work out, or do something else I enjoy, I will still be earning the same amount.
This is the power of recommendation marketing.
The principle behind this technique is quite simple, but you must earn people's trust for it to be effective (This means being honest and not trying to make a quick buck).
I compiled a list of my favorite products and services, and then created a page with a condensed review of these products. (Luckily for me most of them have an affiliate program, which is how I earn the residual income)
You can see how I did this by visiting:
I only recommend something I believe in, that has personally worked for me or someone I trust.
If the product is full of hype and not up to my standards of excellence, I will not put it on my recommendation page. Period.
Here is a quick start guide to getting your own recommendation page up and turning a profit:
- Compile a list of your favorite products and services within your niche
- If the product/service has an affiliate program, be sure to join up.
- Tell your customers about this page. (You can do this with newsletter subscribers as well)
If someone trusts you enough to buy your products, it is very likely they will buy something you recommend.
If you are struggling to find something positive to say about one of these products/services, that should be an instant red flag. You should only recommend products you have purchased and believe in.
Never compromise your customer's trust in you. Trading money for a damaged reputation can be fatal to your online business.
Once you lose someone's trust, you can never truly gain it back. This can mean lost sales and profits for your business.
Try putting this simple plan into action, and I can almost guarantee that you will be thrilled with the results.
