Thanks for stopping by on my Affiliate Links and Disclosures page.
Until recently, I hadn’t really got a clue what an affiliate link was. Hopefully, I can explain it here and what it means on my website. Please contact me if you have any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I initially began putting links onto my website as many of you lovely readers wanted to know where I got resources from and a quick way to find them. This is where I add a link, highlighted and usually in bold onto a post or page. You click on this and a new window is opened onto the resource or article.
As I’ve become a bit more blog-savy I became aware of affiliate schemes. How do they work? When you click on some of my links they may be associated with an affiliate scheme if there is one available. If you click on the link and decide to make a purchase I will get a small percentage commission. This cost you nothing. It gives me a few pence and as a real person I do a little happy dance! These affiliate schemes will collect data to allow them to track sales and make payments to us.
I only ever link to products that I have purchased and as a family we thoroughly enjoy and recommend or products on our family wish list, that we can’t wait to have join our collection. Any reviews of items we have purchased or been gifted are entirely our own views.
What affiliate schemes am I part of:
As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases. I have to put that bit on my website! What it really means is if you click on one of my Amazon links and decide to make a purchase Amazon gives me a small percentage of the sale. It costs you nothing. Here’s the clever bit, even if you purchase something different from Amazon, I will earn a smaller commission on any items you order. This happens if you’ve clicked on my link within the last 24 hours and haven’t clicked on anyone else’s.
As of the 1st August 2019 we’ve reached the grand total of £6.72 – woohoo! No money comes our way until we hit £25 which may happen in 2021!! I’ll keep you updated! What will we spend our incredible earnings on? Probably more bits and bobs for the blog. It’s actually more expensive than you realise to run a website!
Yes Bebe have just launched an affiliate scheme. I’m very excited as this is one of the main small, local businesses we buy from. Lots of our links were already for Yes Bebe and I’ll be going through and changing them to affiliate links. Again, there is no cost to you. Yes Bebe give reward credit to spend in their store. Oh, you can also get discounts on Yes Bebe – use the code BUSY10 for 10% off. Terms and Conditions apply and can be found here.
So, if you’re planning to purchase from any of my affiliate partners I’d love you to click on my links first. It’s very much appreciated.
Awin run affiliate schemes for many recognisable brands. I choose affiliate schemes that match the products that are on the website or I think may really interest you, my audience. Do let me know if there are brands that you’d prefer to see more or less of.
Sponsorship and Advertising
I really enjoy collaborating with other businesses. I’d love to buy all the toys and educational resources we love in the world to recommend, review and give you ideas of how to use, but we don’t have that kind of money!
So, I hope you’ll agree that this is the best of both worlds. The majority of the resources and toys featured on this site have been paid for by ourselves. If we have been gifted an item I will always let you know when I am doing a product review. If I have been paid for my time, I will let you know. This does not impact in any way on my review being entirely of my own opinion. I will not be told what to write, EVER!
When collaborating with businesses I try hard to get you a discount code to be used if you purchase from them. I will be collating a directory of these on the site shortly.
Thank you for your support.
