In 2015, the Federal Trade Commission released rules for Disclosure Compliance. These 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 outbound links on this site: Links on homesteadinghowto.com that connect you to products or services are affiliate links for which we may receive compensation.
Links that take the reader to products that homesteadinghowto.com offers for direct sale through this site are not affiliate links.
What are Affiliate Links?
Affiliate Links are active links on a website that take the reader to an external affiliate company’s website. When a reader clicks on an affiliate link located on homesteadinghowto.com in order to purchase an item from a third-party site, the reader is buying the item from the seller directly and not from homesteadinghowto.com. Amazon and/or other companies pay homesteadinghowto.com a small commission or provide other compensation for promoting their website and products through their affiliate program.
PRICES ARE EXACTLY THE SAME FOR YOU IF YOU PURCHASE THROUGH AN AFFILIATE LINK.
You will not pay more by clicking through to the link, and, in cases where a code, coupon or other discount is provided, you may even pay less by using the affiliate link.
Use of Affiliate Programs
Homesteadinghowto.com makes use of the following two types of affiliate programs:
1. Amazon Affiliate Links
Homesteadinghowto.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 at no additional cost to you.
If homesteadinghowto.com links to an Amazon product using its affiliate code, and a reader clicks through to Amazon using that link, purchases made within 24 hours of clicking the link may earn homesteadinghowto.com a small commission on the entire order.
Any time you see a link that looks like astore.com or amazon.com, it can and should be assumed that it is an Amazon Affiliate link. Amazon links are not “pay per click.”
2. Product Affiliate Links
Product Affiliate links work the same way as Amazon Affiliate links. If you click the link and buy the product, then homesteadinghowto.com recieves a percentage of the sale as commission or some other type of compensation. These links are not “pay per click” unless otherwise noted.
Again, you will not pay more by clicking through to the link, and, in cases where a code, coupon or other discount is provided, you may even pay less by using the affiliate link.
