On this site I do use some affiliate links for products that I recommend; however, I only promote affiliate products that I personally use and/or believe will be relevant and useful to my audience and I include what I believe are the best tools, whether or not they have affiliate programs or not. I will also clearly disclose all links so that they are clear.
I may occasionally promote products or services as part of paid influence marketer campaigns and products in which I have a personal interest in the company. Regardless, again I only recommend products or services that I use personally and/or believe will add value to my readers and I will clearly disclose if I am being paid to market the product or service or any personal interests.
Finally, this site uses Google Ads through Adsense. They have a little blue arrow at the top that says “AdChoices”. Please note that I have no idea what these links go to as part of the Adsense TOS say that I am not allowed to click them.
I am disclosing this because I believe in transparency and also in accordance with the FTC Ruling for Bloggers: “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.”
