As you may know, I sometimes make money through a variety of different ways with this space. In order to be 100% honest and fully transparent, let me break them down so you can have a better understanding of when I’m being paid and what for…
Sponsored Blog Posts These will always be declared with ‘AD’ in the title and then a sentence at the beginning declaring the partnership. All opinions in the posts will be honest, unbiased, and I will never endorse a product that I don’t believe in.
Sponsored Video Content Where I have been paid to talk about, showcase, or otherwise include something in a video, I shall always mark it with [AD], and clearly state what the partnership is before talking about the content. In the case of IGTV, I shall mark [AD] in the title.
Gifted Items/Experiences/Trips Whether in blog or social media post form, will always be marked as [Gifted item/experience/trip] to comply with ASA regulations but also to denote the nature of the collaboration.
Previous Brand Relationships In this case, if I have worked with a brand on previous but not current content I will inform you of the previous collaboration if it took place within a year.
Affiliate Links I will declare whether there are affiliate links within a post, either within the title or the first sentence on my blog, and by using [Aff] on Instagram Stories. For youtube videos, I shall mark each link that is and affiliate link in the description box with [Aff] too. I will then mark individual links with [Aff] on my blog so you know that you’re about to click one. Affiliate links do not cost you money, they do not raise the price of products for you. They just kick back a few pennies to me and can be a great way to support creators!
