Hello there, Starlight here.
So, I’m a big fan of transparency; to whit, this is my formal disclosure that I include recommended products, and links to recommended products on this site, where I specifically benefit from an affiliate relationship.
My goal for this site, and my recommendation for any site that you build, is to generate revenue from focused active and passive methods. Part of that means offering affiliate services and programs that will benefit your target customers.
Rather than clutter the experience and tracking which links are and are not affiliate links, you should assume that any links leading you to products or services are affiliate links that I receive compensation from, just to be safe. That said, I only promote the products and services that I have investigated personally, and believe truly deliver value to my readers.
I am also 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 products on Amazon.com.
Be assured that I have not been given any free products, services or anything else by these companies in exchange for mentioning them on the site. The only consideration is in the form of affiliate commissions or compensation as an advisor for a few companies.
Some of the links on this website are “affiliate links.” That means if you click on a link and purchase the item, Bottled Lightning, LLC receives an affiliate commission. Please note, Bottled Lightning, LLC only recommends products or services that will add value to you. Bottled Lightning, LLC discloses this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255: “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising. If an affiliate link is listed, Bottled Lightning, LLC will disclose it to you at the top of each blog post, page, or email newsletter, if applicable.
