Sometimes when I recommend a product, I’ll link to the company’s website using what’s known as an affiliate or referral link. Basically, if you end up buying a product that you found via my link, I get a 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; sometimes it’s a rolling commission — so if you sign up for a monthly subscription service I might get a slice of that monthly fee.
But here’s the important thing — that referral doesn’t cost you a penny. The entire commission comes out of the vendor’s pocket not yours.
And it goes without saying that I’ll never recommend a product simply because it pays me a commission because that would be sleazy, right?
So I’ll only recommend products that I’ve personally used or that come highly recommended by trusted peers or platforms.
So that you can easily tell when we’re using an affiliate link, I’ll put (affiliate link) after it.
Now it’s possible that there might be an oversight to do so in some cases, so the safest thing to assume is that any time I link to a third-party product, I might get a small commission.
All good? Great!
