This policy is valid from 19 November 2009
In Plain English:
This website contains affiliate links and ads. Hey, it’s a site about Internet marketing, so there’s bound to be some marketing going on here, right?
There are really two things that I want to disclaim as clearly as possible.
1. This website is monetized. In other words, I do make some money from some of the posts and links on this site.
2. This site’s main purpose is not income generation. The main purpose is to be a platform for me to talk and write about one of my favorite topics: online marketing. The goal is for this site to be as useful to you as possible. Making money is a pleasant side-effect of all this and no more.
More importantly, this means that I will never lie to you just to make a few bucks. I don’t give positive reviews in the hopes of getting more sales and I don’t promote crap because it has a high commission. I never push product and I never hard-sell. My only aim is to inform.
If you have any questions about this, please get in touch with me.
