Here are some sample affiliate disclosures:


If you are an Amazon associate, they provide you with the following wording:



These are standard disclosures but you can be as creative as you like with your disclosure and even have fun. I've seen a number of bloggers say something along the lines of

'Please note that I receive compensation if you use my links, and eventually I may earn enough to buy a beer or two.' or

'Yes, this is an affiliate link, so please click it and buy so that I will receive compensation.'

You can make it as simple and straightforward as you like and if you use the same tone as you use on your website, it will contribute to your brand message rather than detract from it.

I'm not sure why anyone would have a problem with a site owner making money. They worked for it, and it wasn't free to build in most circumstances. I think people just want to know where their money is going. Geoff

I don't think people have a problem with it and we should be able to disclose with confidence.

Thanks. I believe this should be in the main training as it is a serious problem

Hi Josh,
People do seem to take it rather lightly, considering it is the law.

Especially if your affiliate program is harsh as well. Amazon close accounts down all the time for stuff like this. It may take a year, 5 years, 10 years, but they will catch them. Most new people are unaware too.

Hi Erica. Thank you for providing this useful training. I really need to take a look at this. In fact I think a lot of people do! I don't see many websites openly displaying the affiliate disclosure.

Yes, Andrew, I still can't believe how many sites do not seem to openly display a disclosure.
