Sometimes I use affiliate links on my blog.
What does that mean?
- If I use a product or service for some time
- I’m satisfied with it
- I would have share that product or service on my blog anyway…
…I join their affiliate program to earn a small comission by referring them.
If you click on these links, you pay the same price as everyone else (or if the promotion allows, even less).
Then, the company takes a small cut of their profits and send it to me as a commission.
In other words, by using the affiliate links to purchase these services, you indirectly support my blog.
What is an affiliate link?
An affiliate link is a specific link that contains a tracking number.
When you clink on these links to visit my affiliated partner’s website, it recognizes that you visited from my blog.
If you make a purchase, they can connect that you came from my website and bought something, therefore, they can give me a tad bit of commission.
Does this affect your judgement?
Most definetely not.
I look at my readers as friends.
And I would never recommend something to a friend, that I don’t believe it.
That should be standard.
Why do you have this disclaimer here?
Partially because I want to explain how this works to be transparent.
Also because some country’s laws (not the one that I live in) require websites to have these disclaimers.
Better be safe than sorry.
Can I send you my product/service to review or promote?
I’m happy to try your product or service if it seems beneficial for me.
And if I feel like my audience can benefit from it too, I’ll share it.
However, I won’t promote your stuff just because you asked me to.
And you can’t pay for my recommendation either.
Integrity over anything else.
