In 2015, the Federal Trade Commission released their new rules for Disclosure ComplianceThese 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 ( are affiliate links of which I receive a small compensation from sales of certain items.

What are affiliate links?

Purchases are made on external affiliate company websites: When a reader clicks on an affiliate link located on ( to purchase an item, the reader buys the item from the seller directly (not from Wealthy Affiliate and/or other companies pay a small commission or other compensation for promoting their website or products through their affiliate program.

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. Wealthy Affiliate links.

( is a participant in the Wealthy Affiliate Bootcamp affiliate Program, an affiliate program designed to provide a means for sites to earn commissions by promoting and referring to the Wealthy Affiliate online marketing training platform and properties including, but not limited to, Wealthy Wealthy Affiliate offers a small commission on products sold through their affiliate links. Each of your purchases via our product affiliation links supports our cause at no additional cost to you.

If a blogger links to a product (with a special code for affiliates embedded in the link), and a reader purchases an item through that link within 24 hours of clicking the link, the blogger gets a small percentage of the sale. Wealthy Affiliate links are not “pay per click.” If you click on the product link and stay around Wealthy Affiliate and purchase something else, however, I will get commission on that sale.

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.
