What is an Affiliate Link?
You’ve probably heard the words “affiliate link” before. And you might think that when you click on any link of a website with affiliate links that you are being charged in some way. This is not always the case and varies from website to website. Let me explain how affiliate links work in general.
Affiliate links are words or pictures that are clickable on any blog or website (such as my website MarcLaucksPhotography.com) which enable the seller (for example a company such as Amazon, Barnes & Noble, or Best Buy) to give credit to the website for sending a customer (the person clicking the link) to their website. On this website, MarcLaucksPhotography.com, I currently have an affiliate link to the company who hosts and designed my website.
Why Does a Website Have Affiliate Links?
Affiliate links are one way of earning commissions for customer referrals online.
Importantly, even though a reader may click on a link and make a purchase, the price for the product they are buying is still the same whether they use the link or not. Clicking on the link only redirects you to a page on a different website. There is usually no compensation for this. However, when you click on and purchase from an affiliate link the “referrer” (for example Marc Laucks Photography) will be paid a small referral commission (enough to buy coffee, but not a bookstore).
Affiliate links are a way for you to support content you find valuable! If you love the content of my website and would like to help support my efforts, you can simply use my links to purchase items you already planned to purchase! The cost is the same for you either way. Again, in some cases the cost can be even lower by using my coupon codes.
About Affiliate Links on MarcLaucksPhotography.com
There are so many products and services online that have “affiliate programs” or “referral programs” however, Marc Laucks Photography only uses affiliate links to products that I have personally used and recommend.
At the time of this posting (December 17, 2021) the only affiliate link on this website is for the company who hosts and designed my website (BizBudding.com).
At such time as I decide to add additional affiliate links, this policy will be updated. All pages or posts on this website that contain affiliate links will notify you of that case at the top of the page or post. You can always search for items I recommend outside of my website and buy them for the same price, however when you use my link it helps me to continue sharing on my website.
My promise to you is that I will always be completely forthright and totally honest in my reviews and recommendations. Every product or service that I share with you is one that I use myself.
If you have any questions, comments or polite suggestions, please feel free to contact me at [email protected] (the email I use for my full-time work and for my photography work).
