Tonight I had dinner with my visitors from Nepal at a restaurant in my town. The food was delicious and the service was fantastic. There were twelve of us in all, so that is not easy for any restaurant on a Friday night. Some of the people were asking me about what I do in my Internet business. I told them that part of what I do is to recommend things that I have spent money on and benefitted from. I used the experience we were having at the restaurant as an example.
Now that I have eaten at this restaurant I will be able to recommend it to others. I will be able to say that they have no problem dealing with a last minute reservation on a Friday night for twelve people, five of whom have specific dietary requirements (the Nepalese do not eat beef or beef products). The prices were reasonable and the portions were large. We never had to look around when we needed more water, a box to take something home with us, or wanted to see a dessert menu; there was always someone there to take care of our needs. We stayed for over three hours, because several of us wanted to see the final score for the Lakers basketball game (they won!) that was showing in the room adjacent to ours. They were happy to have us there during the entire time.
Affiliate marketing is doing exactly what I have done here; I shared my excellent experience with others. What can you promote to others that you have used personally and benefitted from?
