Some of the links in documents and articles on this web site are affiliate links. If you’re not familiar with what that means, please keep reading.
An affiliate link is a link to a web page that contains tracking information which tells which web page sent (referred) the visitor. The owner of the destination web page uses this information to pay the referrer for the lead.
In the Internet marketing world, this payment is usually called an affiliate commission. As a customer, you pay exactly the same price for the end product or service when you purchase through an affiliate link as when you go directly to the supplier’s site. The vendor is willing to pay commissions to bloggers, reviewers, consultants, etc. because they help the ultimate consumers learn about the product or service, find it, and buy it. These individuals often reach many people that the product manufacturer or service provider doesn’t.
There is nothing new about commissioned sales. It’s been a part of the retail industry for many decades.
I use affiliate links for products and services that I have used personally or in my business and that I have been very satisfied with or that have been highly recommended by others I trust who have used them. My recommendations would be the same whether I received a sales commission or not.
I am not compensated to provide my opinions on products, services, websites and various other topics. I earn commissions only when you make a purchase through one of my affiliate links. You are always able to go directly to the web pages I write about and make your purchases independently of my affiliate link.
Any product claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer or provider.
I explain this in detail because I believe in honesty of relationship, opinion and identity.
