I want to be as forthright and honest with you as I am with everyone in my face to face life – because I’m here to share my experiences and hopefully help to create a community of people who love to create as much as I do.
That’s why I want you all to know that from time to time on this website you may see links to products for sale. These links provide me a small percentage commission if you purchase through them, at no cost to you. 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, but it will help me to keep making content and providing hopefully awesome material that you all will love!
Here’s my promise to you:
I will never link to products that I do not personally endorse, believe in, and use.
And, I am not doing reviews, writing articles, or making posts for the sole purpose of selling to you.
These are things that I, at the core, truly believe in. They make me who I am as a person.
Here’s a bit more, in-depth information about affiliate links if you would like to peruse:
What are affiliate links?
Purchases are made on external affiliate company websites: ie. When a reader clicks on an affiliate link located on crafftit.com to purchase an item, the reader buys the item from the seller directly (not from crafftit.com). Amazon and/or other companies pay crafftit.com a small commission or other compensation for promoting their website or products through their affiliate program.
I use two main types of affiliate programs:
1. Amazon affiliate links.
Crafftit.com 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 Amazon properties. Amazon offers a small commission on products sold through their affiliate links.
If a blogger links to an Amazon product (with a special code for affiliates embedded in the link), and a reader places an item in their “shopping cart” through that link within 24 hours of clicking the link, the blogger gets a small percentage of the sale. Amazon links are not “pay per click.” If you click on the product link and stay around Amazon and purchase something else, however, I will also get a commission on that sale.
Anytime you see a link that looks like astore.com/… or amazon.com… it can be assumed that it is an Amazon affiliate link.
2. Product affiliate links.
These affiliate links work the same way: if you click the link and buy the product, then I get a percentage of the sale or some other type of compensation. Things like e-book bundles, e-courses, and online packages are usually affiliate links, as well. Again, prices are not different if you use these affiliate links. You will not pay more by clicking through to the link. These links are not “pay per click” unless otherwise denoted.
What about sponsored content?
I do not write sponsored posts. I want to bring you real, unbiased information. However, if a post in the future is sponsored by a company and it is a paid sponsorship, I will disclose this clearly in the beginning of the post.
