Hey guys on level 3 lesson 4 or 5 and it's having me add affiliate links....it doesn't mention having to add an affiliate disclosure, but after leaving feedback or comments on some websites I see they have disclosures....on site content they also have a affiliate disclosure template.....do I need to plug in my info and publish it as a page? Or in every post that I publish with a link do I need to include some sort of disclosure saying I could receive a commission if you buy this item?

I'm sharing the email I got from one merchant on ShareASale:

FTC DISCLOSURE REQUIREMENTS

You must include a disclosure statement within any and all pages, blog/posts, or social media posts where affiliate links for our affiliate program are posted as an endorsement or review, and where it is not clear that the link is a paid advertisement. This disclosure statement should be clear and concise, stating that we are compensating you for your review or endorsement. If you received the product for free from us or from the affiliate management team for review, this also must be clearly stated in your disclosure.

• Disclosures must be made as close as possible to the claims.
• Disclosures should be placed above the fold; scrolling should not be necessary to find the disclosure. (e.g. Disclosure should be visible before the jump).
• Pop-up disclosures are prohibited.

For more information about FTC disclosure requirements, please review the FTC's "Dot Com Disclosures" Guidelines at http://www.ftc.gov/os/2013/03/130312dotcomdisclosures.pdf ; and the FTC's

Endorsement Guidelines at http://business.ftc.gov/advertising-and-marketing/endorsements

Hi Amber
Yes you should include an affiliate disclosure on all your posts and pages that have affiliate links. This is a bit of a gap in the training as I made the same mistake. Also there is special text you should use if you are an Amazon Affiliate. Which reminds me I have to do that too. I'll send that to you when I find it.
Best regards
Andy

You should have an affiliate disclosure page and reference that page from your posts containing affiliate links.

Take a look at my drone site for an example:
