Hey guys, in 2015, the Federal Trade Commission released their new rules for Disclosure Compliance. These rules are set in place to ensure that readers or viewers of web media (blogs, YouTube videos, etc.) know if the blogger/presenter is sponsored, endorsed, or partnered with a different company. In blog terms, the readers need to know if the blogger is making money by sharing a link or product.
What are Affiliate Links?
When a reader (you) clicks on an affiliate link on my site, they are brought to the website of an external company that I am affiliated with. You then may buy the product(s) or engage in the services of this external company, which as a result may lead to a small commission or other compensation being paid to me for promoting their website, products or services through their affiliate program.
This means, that at no additional cost to you, I may earn a commission, credit or compensation of some sort if you decide to buy their product(s) or engage their services. Prices of the external company’s products or services are exactly the same for you if your purchase is through an affiliate link or a non-affiliate link. Please understand you will not pay more by clicking through to the link.
How Does My Website Work?
So that I am completely transparent with you, for the products and services that I recommend, I do have an affiliate relationship with some companies that provides these products or services. However, I recommend that you don’t spend your money on these products or services unless you can afford it or need it. It is important that you are informed when making purchasing decisions and part of my purpose here is to help you make a more informed decision by clarifying these products or services based on my opinions, preferences and experiences.
My website is not just limited to products or services that I have an affiliation with, I also recommend plenty of things that are free or non-affiliated…and who doesn’t like free stuff, right!? Most of the things I talk about on Inspire Entrepreneur I use or have used myself, on a consistent basis. There are many cases of scams out there on the web that I will strive to avoid by doing my due diligence in research and of course trying the product or service for myself. I hope to earn your trust through this, and together we can build a better community among online entrepreneurs.
