Affiliate Disclosure

The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has begun requiring that affiliate partners disclose that there is a material connection between themselves and the affiliates that they work with. This affiliate disclosure is designed to meet those disclosure guidelines while giving you an informed insight regarding what this means.

As a blogger and a consumer, I fully support these requirements for a disclosure. While I will never try to steer you towards using a product purely for my profit, I will utilize affiliate links from trusted and reliable products or services to help make ends meet.


What Are Affiliate Links?

Affiliate links are links that you use to access certain websites. When you do, the affiliate, which would be myself in this case, earns a certain amount of money when you complete actions.

You should not see any difference in how much you pay when you utilize these links. Many affiliate links are actually designed to help you save even more money as a method of promotion and incentive for affiliate partners.


1. Hostgator Affiliate Program Disclosure

Frankly Making Money works with the Hostgator Affiliate Program. Hostgator is a reliable source for cost-effective hosting, and the numerous deals that they provide make them an ideal source for all your hosting and domain needs. Couple this with their top-class support, and you can understand why I have chosen to use them as an affiliate.


2. ClickBank Affiliate Program Disclosure

Frankly Making Money participates in the ClickBank Affiliate Program. ClickBank makes it possible for independent publishers to market their digital goods and services online without requiring the massive amount of infrastructure that doing so independently does.

Products partaking in the ClickBank program will be accessed through “Hop” links, which are a means for ClickBank to records affiliate traffic.


3. Amazon Services LLC Associates Program Disclosure

Frankly Making Money is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to,,,, and any other website that may be affiliated with Amazon Service LLC Associates Program.

As part of the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, this means we earn a small commission for every item that you buy once you visit Amazon using one of our links. This has no bearing on the actual amount of money that you pay when you purchase these products, as the price to you is the same if you purchase through affiliate or non-affiliate links.

Furthermore, we do not receive money when you click on an Amazon affiliate link. We only receive a commission from sales that are made from Amazon or one of the above listed affiliated websites.

By purchasing using our affiliate links, you are helping us to pay for this website and to offer you more great content. It’s a no-cost-to-you way to help us to continue helping you.


Thank You For Your Continued Support

Before you leave this page, we want you to know that we value your continued support. Whether that support comes in the form of helping us to spread our website to your friends and other contacts or you purchase items affiliated with the programs listed above, we appreciate you for simply visiting and reading this.
