On this blog we help bloggers make better decisions so they can get real results instead of just spinning their wheels in the market wilderness.
We believe that one way that one can be a real entrepreneur is not to ignore easy opportunities to get paid for your efforts. After all, you work too hard for your business not to be compensated, right?
It’s what we teach, and what it’s what we practise.
So let’s talk about affiliate links.
Sometimes when we recommend a product, we’ll link the company’s website using what’s known as affiliate or referral link. Basically, if you end up buying a product that you found via our link, we get commission from the vendor as a small thank you.
Sometimes that commission is just a few dollars, sometimes it’s a little more. Sometimes it’s a one time commission-so if you signup for a monthly subscription service we might get a slice of that monthly fee.
And it goes without saying that we’ll never recommend a product simply because it pays us a commission because that would be sleazy, right?
So we’ll only recommend product that we’ve personally used or that come highly recommended by trusted press. (After all, if we only recommended product we’re using ourselves right now, we’d be doing you disservice because there are tools that are a great fit when you’re starting out, but not when your blog is bigger.
So that you easily tell we’re using an affiliate link we’ll put (affiliate link) after it.
