Welcome to love beauty thrive, and to our post on affiliate disclosure.
love beauty thrive is a personal blog that discusses a variety of lifestyle topics of general interest (designed to inform and entertain, not to provide professional advice of any kind). love beauty thrive is a personal, not professional, lifestyle/opinion blog.
As a personal lifestyle blog, love beauty thrive uses third party advertising and participates in affiliate marketing (embedding tracking links into the website) to support this site.
In this post, we’d like to give our readers a little more info on our participation in affiliate marketing programs and how it’s done. Thank you for your support!
WHAT IS AFFILIATE MARKETING?
In this case, affiliate marketing refers to a type of marketing in which an affiliate (e.g., a blog) earns a small commission by promoting another company’s products on their website (products that the affiliate likes, recommends, and believes in). This is done through the use of tracking links.
Should a purchase be made through one of these links, the affiliate may then receive a small commission (at no extra/added cost to you, the buyer).
As an affiliate, love beauty thrive currently works with Amazon to promote certain products on our blog, products that we specifically choose, love, and are excited about. Amazon provides a tracking link for that product, that we are then able to include in a post. When an interested reader clicks and makes a purchase, love beauty thrive may receive a small commission – at no extra cost to you.
NO ADDED COST TO YOU
It is important to emphasize that any commission we may receive is at no added cost to the buyer. It does not increase the final cost of your purchase in any way. There is no extra cost to you when purchasing a product through an affiliate link on our blog.
The only difference? In purchasing via affiliate link, you are supporting a small business. Thank you for your support of love beauty thrive.
If a post on love beauty thrive contains affiliate links, it will be clearly marked. Clicking on an affiliate link is entirely your choice and completely voluntary. It is not required at all. Should you wish to purchase a product, it is entirely up to you whether or not you wish to do so by using/clicking one of our links (instead of by other means).
love beauty thrive only promotes products that we like, recommend, or are excited about. We would never use false statements to convince a reader to make a purchase. It is always your choice whether you would like to try/purchase a product or think it may be right for you. A purchase is never required. We strongly encourage you to only make purchases that you are interested in and excited about.
