Affiliate Disclosure

In 2015, the Federal Trade Commission released its new rules for Disclosure Compliance. These rules cover the USA. In the U.K., the requirements for an affiliate disclaimer arise from the Consumer Protection from Unfair Trading Regulations 2008 (CPUTR 2008).  These rules are set 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 addition, the readers need to know if the blogger is making money by sharing a link or product in blog terms.

In compliance with the FTC guidelines and CPUTR, please assume the following about links and posts on this site: Most of the links on are affiliate links of which I receive a small compensation from sales of certain items.

What are affiliate links?

Purchases are made on external affiliate company websites: When a reader clicks on an affiliate link located on to purchase an item, the reader buys the item from the seller directly (not from Wealthy Affiliate and other companies like Amazon pay a small commission or further compensation for promoting their website or products through their affiliate program.

If your purchase is through an affiliate link or a non-affiliate link, Prices are exactly the same for you. You will not pay more by clicking through to the link.

I use two main types of affiliate programs:

1. Wealthy Affiliate affiliate links

It works | Affiliate Training is a participant in the Wealthy Affiliate Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to Wealthy Affiliate property. Wealthy Affiliate offers a small commission on products sold through its affiliate links.

2. Product affiliate links

These affiliate links work the same way: if you click the link and buy the product, the 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.

What about sponsored content?

I do not write sponsored posts. I want to bring you accurate, unbiased information. However, if a company supports a post and it is a paid sponsorship, I will disclose this clearly at the beginning of the post.
