Affiliate Links, Sponsored Posts and Personal Product Reviews
As Simple Family Travel is growing, I am being contacted more frequently by various companies who hope to use my platform to get their message out to more people.
As someone who promotes and lives a simpler life by living with less, it may seem like a contradiction to be advertising goods and services.
I’d like to assure you that I only purchase items and services that will bring intentional value to my life. Therefore, when I find these items, I will also share them with you.
The same rules apply to product reviews, sponsored content and affiliate links.
Here is my criteria for deciding which companies I would consider working with:
- Their product or service must be one I would consider using myself.
- Their product must have a specific purpose to solve a specific problem.
- I place priority on companies and their products if they helps me to achieve my primary goal: more time with my family.
- Their guidelines allow me to publish my honest opinion, even if that means a less than glowing review.
I will use affiliate links only if they will be of value to my readers. All affiliate links will be disclosed if a link appears in my post. In the spirit of providing you with help, I will also link to products and services where I don’t earn any commission and/or are not sponsored.
Most importantly, to maintain full transparency, I will always fully disclose any collaborations at the beginning of a blog post.
