In 2015 the Federal Trade Commission issued new laws and principles for Disclosure compliance. These laws were for the awareness of the buyer. According to the FTC Disclosure Compliance Rules, the sponsor has to spread awareness about the affiliate links. The reader or the buyer should be clear of the policy that how much the website, providing the affiliate link, would earn if the buyer buys through that medium.
For this purpose our website revbeast.com provides affiliate links for the certain website from where the buyer can procure anything for himself. We only act as link provider to some specific buyer with the details of the product along with its cost. For this service we get a small compensation from the website. This comes about every time a buyer buys something from any business using the affiliate links provided by our website. But the buyer should be aware of the fact that the cost of the product remains the same in both cases.
In other words the buyer will have to pay the same price either he buys using the affiliate links we have provided or he buys it directly from the website of the seller. But in the case of clicking the affiliate link and buying through that medium, we will be able to generate a small compensation as the reward.
The seller provides a minor amount to the affiliate link provider without affecting the cost or quality of the product to be procured by the buyer. These laws are made so that the buyer is well aware that the affiliate link provider is not actually the product seller but is acting as sponsor, endorsee or a partner to the seller. And it is only making money by sharing the details of a product or the link to the seller’s website. In easy words you can say that affiliate marketing or providing affiliate links is like acting as a marketing agency to the seller. It is not that the buyer will click our website revbeasts.com and will buy the product from us. He will be buying from the seller using our affiliate link.
However, an important note in this regard is that it is not to misguide the buyer to buy a certain product nor can the affiliate link provider change the review of the specific product. It is totally up to the buyer either to buy the product or not. But buying the product using the affiliate link can give benefit to the link provider without causing any loss to the buyer.
What Does Affiliate Link Mean?
For the awareness of the common people we want you to have a look into what affiliate link means. It is a purchase made through an affiliate company or website. What is an affiliate website? It is a particular URL with a username. It is for providing traffic to the advertiser’s or seller’s website. The affiliate link is connected to the seller’s website. In return the seller pays a small sum of predefined amount to the affiliate provider. They have an agreement to provide affiliate links and the traffic.
We deal in the following main affiliate programs.
- Amazon affiliate links.
Being a member of Amazon Services LLC Associate Program, revbeasts.com provides affiliate links to Amazon and generates a small amount as fee. revbeasts.com also provides affiliate links to the other companies or websites associated with Amazon Service LLC Associate Program.
- Product affiliate links.
By simply clicking the product affiliate link and buying it can give revbeasts.com a minor percentage of the sale amount. It can also be a little of the pre-defined compensation between revbeasts.com and the seller.
Again you should be aware of the fact that by using the affiliate link you will not be at any loss. Both you buy it from affiliate link or non-affiliate way, the price and the quality will remain the same. Again, prices are not different if you use these affiliate links. These links are not PPC (pay per click) so you need not to worry about the rest of the things.
