When people hear the words affiliate marketing, often passive income immediately comes to mind. My top earning affiliates know how to maximize both passive and active marketing methods. However, many affiliates miss the opportunity to generate consistent commissions with a simple Recommended Products page. If you are a lifestyle, health, wellness, or beauty affiliate; a Recommended Products page is a great source of passive income.
What is a Recommended Products Page in Affiliate Marketing?
Well, it is just like it sounds. It is a dedicated page accessed through your main navigation that shows your followers which products and/or brands you recommend. Here are a few suggestions for naming this custom page:
- Recommended Products
- My Favorites
It’s starting to sound familiar, right? You see them regularly and probably didn’t think of these pages as income opportunities. See below for tips for creating your top converting page.
Tips For Creating A Converting Recommended Products Page
Here are my top tips for creating a Recommended Products page that translates into consistent commissions.
Make It Obvious – Now is not the time to be clever in your naming, instead make it easy to find and obvious. Keep the name of your page simple such as Shop CBD Brands or Top CBD Picks if you want it to be CBD specific. As far as placement, I recommend placing in your top navigation. However, an eye catching side banner is another great option.
Keep it personal – Always remember that your followers clicked on this page for your advice. Don’t simply add links with no context. Instead, explain why you are recommending a particular product. Write an introduction paragraph explaining why this page exists.
An introduction is also a great opportunity to disclose that you have affiliate links as well. Explain that by clicking on these affiliate links, your followers are supporting the content you provide. Your fans want to support you.
Organize It – Create categories for your recommendations so your followers can easily find what they are looking for. For instance, your categories may be CBD, Essential Oils and Top Wellness Products. Another option would be topic focused such as Products for Sleep, Products for Anxiety, and Beauty Products.
