Affiliate Disclosure Statement
Since I opened The IStudio® in 1995, I’ve always only recommended products that I use and have confidence in. I am known for running my business with the highest levels of honesty, integrity and ethics. At times to the detriment of my “income potential.” This is precisely why I have this page here for your review.
My style has never been “hypey-sales-pitchy” just to make a buck. I don’t say what you want to hear just to get into your pocket-book and earn a small commission here or there. You will never see me recommend a product for you to use or check out if I have not already used that product/service or partnered with the company for my own sites and projects.
If a product, service or company isn’t good enough for me to use on my own sites — it isn’t good enough for you or for me to promote just to garner a commission. Period.
I always have and will continue to only personally recommend or endorse something if I feel that it would be of value to my site visitors. I know first hand the questions and concerns that you have about whom to trust and what companies to spend your hard-earned dollars with. I take that role in your decision-making process very seriously.
If I discover a product or service that has helped me with my sites or projects, I will let you know about it by virtue of a post here @ TheIStudio.com. If a product, service or tool isn’t worth your time, or doesn’t live up to their pitch — then I will let you know that as well. In the past this has led to the person or company contacting me to work through issues of concern which benefits all users.
The purpose of endorsing products or services is for your benefit, not mine. I will tell you about great or interesting products and services that I find regardless of whether I receive any compensation from them.
That said, I do write about products that I like and trust that offer referral programs. In some of these cases I create an affiliate relationship with that company and then receive compensation for referrals. These affiliate relationships allow all parties involved to work closer together to offer you better products and service in the long-term.
If you have any questions about any of the products I discuss or my affiliate partnerships feel free to contact me with your concerns.
At your service,
Your WordPress Consultant
