Affiliate Disclosure

This blog is a personal blog written and edited by me. For questions about this blog, please contact TQ (tq@onlinebzdog.com).

In 2015, the Federal Trade Commission released new rules for Disclosure ComplianceThese 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 links and posts on this site: Any/all the links OnlineBzDog are affiliate links of which I receive a small compensation from sales of certain items.

What are affiliate links?

Purchases are made on external affiliate company websites: When a reader clicks on an affiliate link located on DIY Virtual Marketing to purchase an item, the reader buys the item from the seller directly (not from DIY Virtual Marketing). Amazon and/or other companies pay DIY Virtual Marketing a small commission or other compensation for promoting their website or products through their affiliate program.

Prices are exactly the same for you if your purchase is through an affiliate link or a non-affiliate link. You will not pay more by clicking through to the link.

Affiliate links.

This blog accepts forms of cash advertising, sponsorship, paid insertions, or other forms of compensation.

The compensation received may influence the advertising content, topics, or posts made in this blog. That content, advertising space, or post may not always be identified as paid or sponsored content.

The owner(s) of this blog is compensated to provide opinions on products, services, websites, and various other topics. Even though the owner(s) of this blog receives compensation for our posts or advertisements, we always give our honest opinions, findings, beliefs, or experiences on those topics or products. The views and opinions expressed on this blog are purely the bloggers’ own.

Product affiliate links.

These affiliate links work the same way: if you click the link and buy the product, then the blogger gets a percentage of the sale or some other type of compensation. Things like e-book bundles, e-courses, and online packages are usually affiliated links, as well. Again, prices are not different if you use these affiliate links. You will not pay more by clicking through to the link. These links are not “pay per click“ unless otherwise denoted.

What about sponsored content?

I do not write sponsored posts. I want to bring you real, unbiased information. However, if a post is sponsored by a company and it is a paid sponsorship, I will disclose this clearly at the beginning of the post.
