Recently, the Federal Trade Commission released new rules for Disclosure Compliance. These rules are set in place to ensure that readers or viewers of web media (blogs, YouTube videos, etc) know if the blogger/presenter is sponsored, endorsed, or partnered with a different company.
In blog terms, the readers need to know if the blogger is making money by sharing a link, product, or service. As I’m trying to grow my business, I have costs associated with running and maintaining it. Listed below are several ways I attempt to offset those costs.
In compliance with the FTC guidelines, please assume the following about links and posts on this site:
- Some of the links on https://www.hayleyfualau.com are affiliate links. This means that if you click on the link and buy certain items, I will receive a small commission. The price is the same for you, though! Thank you for your support.
- If I post an affiliate link to a product, it is something that I personally use, support, and/or would recommend without an affiliate link.
- I may review items that are sent to me for free. All my opinions regarding them are my own. I only endorse products that are in alignment with my ideals and that I believe would be of value to my readers.
- If a post is sponsored by a company, I will disclose that within the post. My husband calls me “the gold standard of uncompromising.” It’s his silly way of saying that I am very picky about what I recommend, and that holds true for sponsored posts. If it’s not something I would use with my family, I won’t recommend it.
