As you may know, I often make money through a variety of means with this space. I’m going to break down these for you, so you can have a better understanding of when I’m being paid and what for. Please note that I will never promote anything that I do not believe in 100%. You can trust that my recommendations are legit and trustworthy. If you have any questions about anything, feel free to send me a dm or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Sponsored Blog Posts
Sometimes, I am paid to produce content in the form of blog posts. These will always be declared with ‘AD’ in the title and will be further disclaimed in a small sentence at the beginning of the post.
Sponsored Social Media Posts
Where I have been paid to promote something, I will always mark it with [AD] at the beginning of the caption, tweet or post. If I have been paid to produce an Instagram story, this will be marked with with [AD] in the top, lefthand corner of the story.
Whether in blog or social media post form, gifted items with a requirement to post will always be marked as [AD - gifted/gifted experience/gifted trip]. If I was gifted an item with no obligation to post, I will mark the post with [Gifted] to comply with ASA regulations but also to denote the nature of the collaboration.
Previous Brand Relationships
In this case, if I have worked with a brand on previous but not current content I will inform you of the previous collaboration if it took place within a year.
I will declare whether there are affiliate links within a post, within the first sentence on my blog, or by using [Aff] on Instagram Stories. I will then mark individual links with [*] on my blog so you know that you’re about to click one.
Affiliate links will not affect your purchase in any way. By purchasing through my affiliate links, it means that I will receive a small commission from your purchase. Purchasing from affiliate links is a great way to support creators without spending a penny!
