Trajectory To Wealth is reader-supported. This means the author(s) may earn referral commissions when you buy products or services from companies or products that they recommend or have reviewed.
This is a monetization method known as affiliate marketing. It is a common method used by many websites, and most brands on the internet offer affiliate programs, including Amazon and Google, etc. In fact, many of your favorite brands and sites use affiliate marketing to pay their bills.
The only difference between me and them is that not everyone tells their users how they make their money. But I put in every effort to be fully transparent and ensure that any affiliate links on my website are disclosed in accordance with the (Federal Trade Commission) FTC.
How Does Affiliate Marketing Work?
When you click on a link from a product or service I have reviewed, you are tagged with a special cookie to track the referral. If you end up navigating to the merchants site from my link and end buying the product, then they pay me a referral commission, or some other sort of reward (for example if someone signs up to a cryptocurrency exchange using my referral link, I might be rewarded by not having to pay transaction fees on my trades for a set period of time etc.). So as you could imagine, the referral bonuses vary for each product or service.
I only recommend products that I use myself or believe will add value to readers and the goals of my website. All opinions are my own, and I do not accept payments for positive or ‘fake’ reviews.
Will it Cost You More Money?
Nope! Not at all. In fact, in most cases, you will end up actually saving money! You can think of using referral links as coupon codes, it often provides you discounts that you would not have otherwise had access to.
