Many bloggers use affiliate links when recommending products and services to their readers. When you click such links and make a purchase, a small commission is paid to the blogger, at no cost to you. It’s given to the blogger by the vendor as a ‘thank you’ for making the referral.
How do I know that your recommendations are genuine?
Adaobi Reads… was created to help people, whether that’s giving practical tips on how to settle into your new UK community, or telling you what tools I used to make this blog so you can create your own. Your trust is important to me, so I’ll only recommend products that I genuinely believe in. I hope that you’ll continue to be a valued part of the Adaobi Reads community.
How can I tell which links in a post are affiliate ones?
If you are on a desktop computer, you can hover your mouse over a link. In the bottom left corner of your browser you should see the link address. Affiliate links will often refer to the site name, Adaobi Reads. Or, you may see the term ‘affiliate program’, or ‘ap’ in the url. I will aim to put a message on each post reminding you that there may be affiliate links on the page. But, for simplicity’s sake, it’s best to just assume that all links to third-party sites are commission-earning referral links.
What are you doing with the commission that vendors pay you?
Commission payments will be used to help maintain and promote the site, as well as providing additional income I can use to support myself and my family.
Do you earn money from Amazon?
There may be times when I’ll include a referral link to a product on Amazon. So, yes, as an Amazon Associate, I earn from qualifying purchases.
