Affiliate Disclosure

Affiliate Disclosure

The short version:

Theresa Horn at https://theresahorn.com participates in several affiliate marketing programs. That means that if you click on a link on this website and purchase something, I may earn a small percentage of income from that sale at no cost to you.

As an Amazon Associate, I earn from qualifying purchases.

I am not paid to promote specific products or services and only share products that I use and recommend unless otherwise noted.

The long version:

In 2015, the Federal Trade Commission released their new rules for Disclosure ComplianceThese 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: Any/all of the links YOURWEBSITE.com are affiliate links, of which I receive a small compensation from sales of certain items.

What are affiliate links?

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

Prices are 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. 

I use two main types of affiliate programs:

1. Amazon affiliate links.

theresahorn.com is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to Amazon properties including, but not limited to, amazon.com. Amazon offers a small commission on products sold through their affiliate links.

If a blogger links to an Amazon product (with a unique code for affiliates embedded in the link), and a reader places an item in their “shopping cart” through that link within 24 hours of clicking the link, the blogger gets a small percentage of the sale. Amazon links are not “pay per click.” If you click on the product link and stay around Amazon and purchase something else, however, I will get a commission on that sale.

Anytime you see a link that looks like “astore.com/” or “amazon.com,” you can assume that it is an Amazon affiliate link.

2. Product affiliate links. 
These affiliate links work the same way: if you click the link and buy the product, then 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 real, unbiased information. Otherwise, I will disclose this clearly at the beginning of the article.
