I’m JW Spencer
Business transparency and honesty is very important to me. In that spirit, I would like to let you know that this website takes part in several affiliate referral programs. As such, many of the outbound links on this website are affiliate links. This may include links to products I review, or other materials or resources, such as banner ads. I may receive a small commission if you click one of those links and go on to purchase a product or service, but the price is the same for you. I am very picky about the products and services that get promoted on my website. Posts on this website, or recommendations from this website will only contain products that I have used, or believe will be of value to you, as I want to use them myself in the studio.
Here is some legal “Mumbo Jumbo” required by one such affiliate. Jeff W Spencer is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by linking to Amazon.com.
Other examples of affiliate programs that I may participate are: B&H Photo, Adorama, Elegant Themes, and Bluehost to name a few. I also may receive a small commission for the ubiquitous ads placed by Google. Please understand that this is not a definitive list, as I may have other affiliates as well. If you have any concerns about clicking affiliate links, it’s safest to simply assume that all links to products or services seen on this website are affiliate links.
Why Do We Use Affiliate Links?
Affiliate programs do not cost you any money but the small commission, usually a very small percentage, adds up to help my business. What do I do with that money? I buy food for our dogs, buy organic and locally sourced food for good gut health, as well as keep the lights on and paper in the printer.
You should also know that there is a potential for my affiliate links to actually offer you a special reduced cost for some products or services as part of my agreement as an affiliate. I hope that this helps you understand the intent and purpose of my having affiliate links on my website.
