Disclosure: Understanding Affiliate Marketing

When I started my blog in November 2017, I had no clue what affiliate marketing was.

So what exactly is affiliate marketing?

Affiliate marketing is when you refer someone to a product or service, via affiliate links, and in return get paid a small commission, rewarded free stock, etc., based on whether that person signed up and/or made a purchase. There is no additional cost, weird small print to look into or “catch”. It’s just a simple thank you from the company for making a referral.

For example, I own some stocks through the app called Robinhood. If someone clicks on the link that I have provided on my homepage and signs up, we both get a free stock. I actually signed up through someone’s link a year ago. I don’t remember who it was but I was sold on the idea, so they earned free stock from a complete stranger. And as a disclaimer, if you do sign up with Robinhood through my link, please be diligent with informing yourself about how the stock market works before taking risks with trading and selling.

Any links that I provide, in regards to a product or service, is an affiliate link that I recommend. Don’t feel obligated to click, buy and/or sign up for anything. If you like something, cool, if not, cool. I only provide affiliate links as a combination of sharing what I recommend.

As of right now, the only affiliate marketing companies that are activated on my website and contribute towards keeping this website going are:

  1. Bluehost – The web hosting service I have chosen to host this website.
  2. Robinhood – A free trading app
  3. Acorns– An investment/cash back app
