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, like such as yourself, of web media (blogs, YouTube videos, etc.) know if the blogger/presenter is sponsored, endorsed, or partnered with a different company. What this means is as a visitor to my website you need to know whether I am making money by sharing a link or product.
Please be informed that the following links and posts on this site: Any/all the links on https://mylivingthedream.com 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 you click on an affiliate link located on https://mylivingthedream.com to purchase an item, and you buy the item from the seller directly (not from https://mylivingthedream.com). Companies like Amazon and/or other companies pay https://mylivingthedream.com 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. Advertising Affiliate Links.
https://mylivingthedream.com uses links to companies such as Amazon that have an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites like mine to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to the companies properties including, but not limited to, their website. These advertising programs offers a small commission on products sold through their affiliate links. Each of your purchases via their affiliation links supports my cause at no additional cost to you.
If through my link to a company’s product (with a special code for affiliates embedded in the link), results in you placing an item in your “shopping cart” through that link within 24 hours of clicking the link, I will receive a small percentage of the sale. My affiliate links are not “pay per click.” If you click on the product link and stay around the company’s website and purchase something else, however, I will get commission on that sale.
2. Affiliate Program Network Links.
These affiliate links work the same way except the network is an intermediary between me and the merchant. If you click the network link and then on a merchant’s link and buy the product or service, then I get a percentage of the sale or some other type of compensation.
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.
