If you don’t trust me enough to tell me it’s an affiliate link, why should I trust you?

Are you being clever when you hide the fact that the links in your blog post and/or e-mail newsletter are affiliate links? Your readers might not agree with you. In fact, they might choose to question your trustworthiness and your credibility in other areas as well.

Why not try something like “I’ve tried this product and I highly recommend it, with or without the affiliate commission I’ll make when you click this link for WonderWidgetOrWhatever.” Your honesty might be the deciding factor for a prospective customer.
