In 2015, the Federal Trade Commission released their new rules for Disclosure Compliance. These rules are set in place to ensure that readers or viewers of web media (blogs, Youtube videos, etc.) know if the blogger/presenter is sponsored, endorsed, or partnered with a different company. In blog terms, the readers need to know if the blogger is making money by sharing a link or product.
In compliance with the FTC guidelines, please assume the following about links and posts on this site:
A part of the links on this site WebMarketSupport.com
There are many kinds of actions that generate commissions for the affiliates (publishers), such as sales, subscriptions, downloads, software installs, digital form completions, survey completions, participation in contests, ad clicks, ad impressions, and other.
What are affiliate links?
Purchases are made on external affiliate companies websites: When a visitor clicks on an affiliate link located on WebMarketSupport.com to purchase an item, the visitor buys the item from the seller directly (not from WebMarketSupport.com). External companies pay WebMarketSupport.com a small commission or other compensation/bonuses for promoting their websites or products through their affiliate program.
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.
Product affiliate links
These affiliate links work the same way: if you click the link and buy the product, then the website owner/blogger gets a percentage of the sale or some other type of compensation. Things like e-book bundles, e-courses, and online packages are usually affiliated 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.
There are companies that offer referral programs where affiliates can participate in order to influence potential customers and recommend the companies products/services to other people. It’s like the common word-of-mouth process where you recommend your favorite restaurant, hotel, or movie to a friend. In some of these referral programs, participants are able to build a downline of referrals which may result in additional income for them that derives from the unique actions of their referrals.
For more information regarding affiliate commissions and compensation types, please refer to this page: Affiliate Marketing Pricing Models.
I always bring to you real, authentic, unbiased information. However, there may be times that I get approached by companies in order to promote their products or services. In the case that I accept to review their product(s) and write a post, the content and the information I provide to my readers will not be influenced by the compensation I may receive.
If a post is sponsored by a company and it is a paid sponsorship, I will disclose this relationship clearly.
All the reviews
In cases of affiliate links, I usually place a mini disclaimer at the bottom of each article/page linking to this Disclaimer page for more information.
I encourage you to take a look at the review section of WebMarketSupport to find out about my personality and which programs, products, and companies I promote.
If you do this you’ll discover that I only promote the best programs from the most trustworthy resources. These are products and services that I personally use and products that I believe will add real value to my readers. These are products and services that passed the test of time, are proven and reliable, and very often are being used and promoted by top industry names and leaders.
But most of the reviews on WebMarketSupport are negative. And this is why I never recommend programs that are not superb. I never recommend low-quality programs. And there are many fraudulent programs in the online marketing world. Well, I want something better for you, so this is why I review programs carefully to help you decide.
A part of WebMarketSupport consists of lists and guides on certain products, programs, services, networks, advertising and marketing sites, communities, or forums. Some of the companies that are being presented might offer an affiliate or a referral program.
My intention is to bring to you the most accurate, updated, and unbiased information but at the same time, I may participate in affiliate and referral programs in which I strongly believe that will bring value and benefit you.
In the case of articles/lists, you may assume that a part of the links
WebMarketSupport participates in the Google AdSense advertising platform and various other ad networks. A big part of the pages on this site are absolutely ad-free. However, there are pages in which I let ad networks to place their ads, images, and banners in order to improve user experience with relevant advertisements and to help WebMarketSupport external partners. In that case, when someone clicks an ad banner or any other advertisement and gets redirect to a merchant’s website I may receive a compensation. There are also cases, where I may receive commissions for ad impressions, meaning even when visitors on this site do not click the banners and advertisements. Additionally, there are cases where some of these ad networks offer a referral program in which I may participate in.
This website has only one intention, to suggest products, programs, or services that I personally believe that can be proved valuable to you. I only recommend tested, proven, and reliable products that I firmly believe in. Products and services from well-known and trustworthy resources.
In cases I am not satisfied with a program I clearly state it and this is something that happens frequently.
It would be very easy for me to promote every company and product out there, but I only promote ELITE programs, the best of the best. My priority is always my visitors: their satisfaction, best possible experience and their benefit so that someday, I become someone that they will remember!
Besides, promoting “bad” products would have a negative impact on my reputation.
However, I strongly advise you to proceed with cause and do your due diligence before you purchase any product and only if you can easily afford it.
