I Love My Home Office is reader supported. We don’t have ads on our site, and none of our content is sponsored.
So how do we make money?
Great question. Let’s talk about that…
Affiliate Links (What They Are & How We Use Them)
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 sleazy, right?
So we’ll only recommend products that we’ve personally used, that come highly recommended by trusted peers, or have a LOT of in-depth, high-quality reviews.
So that you can easily tell when a post of ours has one or more affiliate links, you’ll see the following notice before the content begins:
If you make a purchase using our links, we may earn a commission.
Most of the affiliate links we use are from Amazon, which works just like any other vendor. As an Amazon Associate, we earn from qualifying purchases. You click our link, and you decide to buy something, Amazon gives us a commission.
Easy peasy, right?
