The Affiliate Disclosure at WorkFromHomeNotes.Com
The Very Very Short Version
I earn from qualifying purchases.
The Very Short Version
If there is a link here assume I am going to benefit if you click on it or buy a product.
The Short Version
When you buy something from this website, I may receive an affiliate commission.
These are my opinions and are not representative of the companies that create these products.
My reviews are based on my personal own experience and/or research.
I never recommend poor quality products, or create false reviews to make sales.
It is my intention to explain products so you can make an informed decision on which ones suit your needs best.
Just to be safe, you can assume that any link that you click while on my site is an affiliate link and I will earn compensation as a result. Just be aware that this is not always the case.
I urge you to not spend any money on any of these products or services unless you really need or can afford them.
The Long Version
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.
In compliance with the FTC guidelines, please assume the following about links and posts on this site: Any/all of the links on WorkFromHomeNotes.com are affiliate links of which I receive a small compensation from sales of certain items. This is not always the case.
What are affiliate links?
Purchases are made on external affiliate company websites: When a reader clicks on an affiliate link located on WorkFromHomeNotes.com to purchase an item, the reader buys the item from the seller directly (not from WorkFromHomeNotes.com). Amazon and/or other companies pay WorkFromHomeNotes.com a small commission or other compensation for promoting their website or products through their affiliate program. These sellers have their own Privacy Policies on their websites.
Prices are exactly the same for you if your purchase is through an affiliate link or a non-affiliate link. You will not pay more by clicking through to the link.
I use two main types of affiliate programs:
1. Amazon affiliate links.
As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases.
WorkFromHomeNotes.com is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to Amazon properties including, but not limited to, amazon.com. Amazon offers a small commission on products sold through their affiliate links. Each of your purchases via our Amazon affiliation links supports our cause at no additional cost to you.
If a blogger links to an Amazon product (with a special code for affiliates embedded in the link), and a reader places an item in their “shopping cart” through that link within 24 hours of clicking the link, the blogger gets a small percentage of the sale. Amazon links are not “pay per click.” If you click on the product link and stay around Amazon and purchase something else, however, I will get commission on that sale.
Anytime you see a link that looks like astore.com/… or amazon.com… it can be assumed that it is an Amazon affiliate link.
2. Product affiliate links.
These affiliate links work the same way: if you click the link and buy the product, then the blogger gets a percentage of the sale or some other type of compensation. Things like e-book bundles, e-courses, and online packages are usually affiliate links, as well. Again, prices are not different if you use these affiliate links. You will not pay more by clicking through to the link. These links are not “pay per click”, unless otherwise denoted.
What about sponsored content?
I do not write sponsored posts. I want to bring you real, unbiased information. However, if a post is sponsored by a company and it is a paid sponsorship, I will disclose this clearly in the beginning of the post.
