Summary

I’m kind of surprised that I have to write this, but this website makes money. Indeed, people come to this website to learn how to make money, and it hopefully comes as no surprise that I also try to make money from my work. We also use cookies on this website. If you provide information to us, we only use it to contact you and market to you. This web site is for profit. We make money the following ways:

  • Display Advertisements
  • Product Referrals. This includes any links to Amazon.com and any links with “/refer/” in them. I also try to put “(affiliate)” on all links that are affiliate links.

To summarize, this website exists to provide helpful information to people, but we also want to make a profit. We use cookies, and use of wealthartisan.com constitutes an agreement that you accept our use of cookies and methods for making money.

FTC Disclosure

The FTC requires all bloggers to disclose their financial relationships with companies.

Summary

The FTC isn’t terribly clear on the proper way to disclose these affiliations, and trying to sort through hundreds and thousands of pages to label everything is just insane. So, I’m taking this tact: assume that everything on this website is compensated for. I have added a disclosure notice to every article on this website. I intend to make money from this site and if anyone doesn’t like it, then they are free to leave. Just assume that all articles are sponsored and all links are affiliate links.

An affiliate link is a link to a product or service for which we’ll receive a commission should you choose to purchase or subscribe to it. This does not affect the price that you pay for the product.

We have numerous affiliate links on our website. We’ve tried to label them as well as possible. If the link goes to Amazon.com, then treat it as an affiliate link. Also, links containing “/refer/” in them are affiliate links. While many links on Wealth Artisan are not affiliate links, if the link goes to a product or service, then it’s best to assume it is an affiliate link. I have made every effort to also put “(affiliate)” after each link that is an affiliate link.

Free Products & Paid Reviews

While we mostly review products and services that we’ve personally used, it is possible that some reviews will be based solely on the use of a demo or trial, internet research and speaking with the providers of the products or services. It is also possible that we may review a product or service for which we’ve received a free copy or compensation.
