The Federal Trade Commission requires that I disclose any relationship I have with a product manufacturer or service provider when I write about a product or service. Here are the guidelines I operate under here at VocationVillage.com:
I am never paid to do a positive review. I write my honest opinion about the product or service. If I create an affiliate link to a product or service in a review or article, I may be paid a commission if you purchase the product or service by clicking on my affiliate product link. The compensation I receive for participating in affiliate programs enables me to continue to provide free content that I hope is useful to VocationVillage.com visitors. An example of a company with whom I have an affiliate relationship is Amazon.com.
I choose affiliate products and services based on my own positive experience with the products and services. No advertiser will ever influence the content, topics or posts made on this website. My reputation and credibility matter to me a lot more than the small amount of money that I can earn via the affiliate links on this site.
