At MISS UNCONVENTIONAL we help millennial women take control of their finances and design their best life.
We believe that one way to be unconventional is to happen to life, not let life happen to you and that means taking control of your money and developing yourself personally and professionally. After all, you only get on life to live, best make it the best design possible, right?
It’s what we teach, and it’s what we practice.
So, let’s talk about affiliate links.
Sometimes when we recommend a product, we’ll link to the company’s website using what’s known as an affiliate or referral link. Basically, if you end up buying a product that you found via our link, we get a commission from the vendor as a small “thank you.”
Sometimes that commission is just a few dollars; sometimes it’s a little more. Sometimes it’s a one-time commission; sometimes it’s a rolling commission — so if you sign up for a monthly subscription service we might get a slice of that monthly fee.
But here’s the important thing — that referral doesn’t cost you a penny. The entire commission comes out of the vendor’s pocket not yours.
And it goes without saying that we’ll never recommend a product simply because it pays us a commission because that would be shady and unethical, right?
So, we’ll only recommend products that we’ve personally used or that come highly recommended by trusted peers. (After all, if we only recommended products we’re using ourselves right now, we’d be doing you a disservice, because there are tools that are a great fit when you’re starting out, but not when you’ve reached a certain level in your lifestyle design journey.
So that you can easily tell when we’re using an affiliate link, we’ll put (affiliate link) after it.
For instance, if we recommend a book that’s sold on Amazon, it will look like this:
“Book Title” (Affiliate Link)
Now it’s possible that we didn’t mark some links in older posts as clearly as this, so the safest thing to assume is that any time we link to a third-party product, we might get a small commission.
Does that make sense? Yes! Thank you so much!
