Per the FTC regulations, this is a full explanation of how and when I am compensated on SideHustleandSave.com.
In order to keep all of my blog content free of charge, but still be able to pay all the costs associated with running an online business (hosting fees, domain name, blog design, my own time and that of those who help me), there are many ways in which I am compensated.
OPINIONS AND MORALS
The integrity of Side Hustle and Save is of the utmost importance to me. I will never promote anything that I fully do not believe in, even if offered to be compensated for it. Likewise, I will not promote something that is not valuable to you, as my reader, even if I DO personally believe in it, nor would I promote anything that does not fit into the specified categories on this site.
If I say I like something, I do. If I say I hate something, I do. Most of the companies that I promote are companies that I have used long before I ever started a blog.
UNDERWRITTEN POSTS / PRODUCT REVIEWS
On occasion, I will accept a product review if it lines up with the sites’ overall theme, and I think you, as a reader, could benefit from the information. Never can my opinion be bought, and the product review is 100% my words, my opinions, and my thoughts with 100% honesty. If a product or service is mentioned, and you do not see the disclaimer on the page, I was not compensated for it.
Another way in which I am compensated is through sales or leads generated through affiliate marketing links.
Again, it is important for me to mention that I will never put a link up just to make money. I am extremely picky over what I chose to promote, and everything is prayed over before making my decision. Most of the companies I have affiliate marketing accounts with, are ones that I have had before I began blogging, and have personally used myself throughout the years.
Clicking on an affiliate link and making a purchase or signing up for a service will be earning me a commission and helping me to keep this blog free. And at no extra cost to you.
TRUST AND COMMITTMENT
Maintaining your trust with me is vital on this blog and in my own personal life with everyone I meet. I will not do anything to purposely misalign that trust, nor will I ever share anything that I personally do not use or believe in wholeheartedly.
I use third-party advertising companies to serve ads when you visit my site. These companies may use aggregated information (not including your name, address, email address or telephone number) about your visits to this and other sites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you.
