I have recently decided to take on a few affiliate opportunities for certain high value add products and services. I will only link to services I recommend, use or that would add significant value to my clients. There are no hidden agendas, it is merely a referral fee if someone decides to sign up with one of the products or services I promote. I am very selective, and won’t just recommend anyone. An important point is that it costs you nothing. These are trade fees that the supplier has built into their price for anyone referring them.
Affiliate links are used to tell the supplier that the traffic came from our website or social channels. It is just a reference number in the URL, we do not send any data from our servers. It is a normal external link to another site. It is a small thank you from the supplier for sending traffic to them.
I will mark all affiliate links with a “(affiliate link)” label where possible.
