New Blogging Tool Recomonk Helps Make Affiliate Marketing Easy for Bloggers
The holidays are upon us and for many bloggers that means that it is gift guide season! Gift guides are a fantastic way to recommend products to readers searching to buy for people in their lives. Many companies like it because the recommendations from genuine users are much more reliable and successful for selling their products than another ad or coupon. Readers like it because they can find items that they wouldn’t have discovered otherwise. Bloggers like it because it is often a way to make a little extra cash during the holidays, a way to thank companies they’ve worked with in the past, or even just as a way to connect with readers over products that they love.
Great gift guides also take time and effort to put together well. Making the products easy to shop is often tedious or ugly. Well, that is until our most recent Featured Business came on the scene! Introducing… Recomonk!
What is Recomonk?
Recomonk is a TOOL for bloggers wanting to make the affiliate process easier for themselves and their readers.
Recomonk is a web-service which helps you maximize your website’s affiliate income.
We do this by making it very easy for your website’s visitors to discover and shop for the items you endorse or recommend. And here’s the best part – all this happens in a seamless and visually pleasing manner! — The Recomonk Website
How did Recomonk come about?
It started with an idea to replace ads with recommendations because recommendations are more trust-worthy than advertisements. Initially it was a widget from just the side bar and then it came into being a store front and other discovery tools.
How do I get invited to Recomonk?
Recomonk is still fairly new, but growing fast. These tools are currently free. Simply head over to the Recomonk website and request an invite. The creator of Recomok is also looking for feedback on this new tool and ways to make it even better.
What tools does Recomonk have that will help me?
The Recomonk platform has a series of different abilities to help bloggers create an easy, customized shopping experience on their blogs. Within the platform users may search Amazon for products or link to any product on the web (your affiliate ID can be placed within the platform.) Recomonk uses Viglink to connect to over 30,000 affiliate networks so that you can earn more rewards. You may also use your own affiliate links. As you add products to your collections you are able to review the product, including all information that the FTC requires! Once your collections are created the fun can begin…
- A shoppable store front can be created using one or all of your collections. (See our Blogger’s Gift Guide Shopfront below!) The widget can be customized in a variety of ways from colors to sizing. The code is then simply copied and pasted into a blog’s text editor.
- Are you a fashion blogger or are you featuring products in your blog images? You can let your readers shop your blog images using Recomonk’s Image-Link Widget.
- The Text Link widget allows your readers to see images of products that you link to when they hover over a text link.
