B - Create & display product recommendations
1. What are product recommendations on the Judge.me profile?
Product recommendations help you share your experiences about the products that you have used and want to recommend to your followers. A product recommendation consists of:
- A quotation of your review
- A photo or video featuring the product reviewed by you
- Information of the product (name, price, image)
- A call-to-action linked to the product page
You can create your recommendations in three ways: (1) from existing reviews, (2) from existing blog articles/Youtube videos/Instagram posts, or (3) from a blank template.
By creating product recommendations on Judge.me, you can consolidate all your content in one place, and earn referrals for any sales generated from Judge.me.
2. What benefits can I gain from my Judge.me profile?
With a Judge.me profile, you can:
- Have a dedicated page (with minimal setup, free of charge) to showcase the full list of all products you personally endorse.
- Create product recommendations based on your existing reviews, or content published on your website or social media (Instagram, Youtube).
- Earn commissions from Judge.me based on the sales made via the affiliate link on your public profile.
- Add sections to promote your merchandise and social media channels.
3. I already have a website to publish my content and sell my merchandise. How does this page help me?
Your Judge.me profile page is an additional channel for you to manage your recommendations easily and make them more obvious to your followers. While you may have other content on your website, this page solely focuses on showcasing product recommendations.
You may have a long Youtube video that covers a makeup tutorial and some product recommendations. You can feature this video on your Judge.me profile page and create a recommendation to give more details about the product you recommended such as its name, price, link to buy, etc.
When visiting your profile page, your followers will have every information they need to make a buying decision. They can buy the product easily by clicking on the "Shop this product" button and you can earn commissions on the sales coming from your page.
Besides, you can add an optional merchandise section to feature your own products. You can add your own affiliate links and/or coupon links into the call-to-action (CTA) buttons to promote your products.
You have a shop selling homemade lip balm and you’ve just introduced new products last week. You can make use of this merchandise section to offer discount links to the first customers who purchase your lip balm.
Another example is when you coordinate with a brand that is selling its products via Amazon. In this case, you can also add your affiliate links to the CTA buttons to attract more sales.
4. I am already listing product affiliate links on my YouTube and Instagram, what is so different about this page?
Your Judge.me profile page is where you can list all your product recommendations (and affiliate links), whether the recommendation is from your existing YouTube videos, Instagram photos, or created from scratch. Because your recommendations are consolidated in one place, it's easier and more convenient for you to manage, and for your visitors to see those recommendations.
5. What else can I display on my Judge.me profile?
If you have a Youtube channel and Instagram account, you can create social feeds that display:
- Four latest videos on your Youtube channels
- Six latest photos in your Instagram account
6. Is this page really free? What’s in it for Judge.me?
Yes, this page is completely free. As you create more product recommendations, our platform can help more consumers to make buying decisions based on real opinions. In the long run, we can establish our brand as a consumer reviews platform that assists product discovery based on genuine, unbiased product recommendations. Therefore, we don’t need to nor want to nor will ever charge you for being on our platform.
