One Step Closer to Amazon and Others
As I said in my last post, I don't want to register with Amazon Associates and be locked out because I don't have enough posts and don't meet their requirements so I am busy adding pages to my website, I've done a lot of work, but I still only have 9 articles. It takes longer than you think to write something that other people are likely to get a benefit from.
As for affiliates, until I have 10 pages up and finished I will not be applying for registration with Amazon. I want to make sure that I get accepted first time. So in the meantime, as an easier option, I am offering products from AliExpress. They are low cost products and I am only offering products I feel are trustworthy. Some of the products you get from there are rubbish and I don't want that tainting my brand.
I copied the principal from someone else and have added a disclaimer which is visible on weach page and tells them that the links are affiliate links, that it doesn't impact on the pricing customers will pay and that it helps me fund the cost of hosting and managing the page.
I think it's only fair to let people know that you are not being underhanded in any way and I feel if people like what they read, they may show their grattitude by buying from me and not going direct.
What do you think about letting people know you benefit from their purchases if you follow their clicks?
