ChannelEmpire.com is part of my business. I earn some of my income through the work I do on this site.
As my business is based around trust that my readers have in me, I want to be as clear as possible as to what I do and how I earn money.
I earn money on this site in several ways, including:
- Affiliate commissions
- Digital product sales
I participate in a few affiliate programs including (but not limited to) Amazon, ClickBank, CJ, Avangate, LinkShare, ShareASale, and eBay.
All of the products I receive affiliate commissions for are ones that I believe in whole-heartedly and in most cases use myself. For some of my affiliate links, I disclose my relationship right in the post – however, doing this with every link would get in the way of the content, so consider this my official disclosure of them (as the title of this page would indicate).
In the case of partnerships with companies, I only agree to a partnership if I believe in the product and the company itself.
Everything on this site should be taken as the opinion of the writer. Money-related posts should not be taken as legitimate financial advice, and technology advice is solely an opinion. I am not an expert on anything.
My articles are based on research from books and blogs along with self-experimentation. Everything you try out for yourself should be contingent upon your own research and good judgement.
