The Federal Trade Commission has requirements for the types of disclosures bloggers and websites need to make regarding affiliate links. These rules are set in place to ensure that readers know if the blog or website is sponsored, endorsed, or in partnership with a company or brand. In short, readers should know if a blogger is making money by sharing a link or product.
In compliance with the FTC guidelines, you should assume that any and all of the links on mollymarshallmarketing.com are affiliate links for which I receive a percentage of the sale as compensation.
What are affiliate links?
Purchases are made on external affiliate company websites: When a reader clicks on an affiliate link located on mollymarshallmarketing.com to purchase an item, the reader buys the item from the seller directly. Amazon and/or other companies pay Molly Marshall Marketing a small commission or other compensation for promoting their website or products through their affiliate program.
Prices are exactly the same for you if your purchase is through an affiliate link or a non-affiliate link. You will not pay more by clicking through to the link.
