What Is Affiliate Marketing?
Affiliate marketing allows websites like ours to display special links to products or services we endorse, so that when people make purchases through those links we get a small commission on the sale.
There is no extra cost to you, you just pay the standard price for the item as if you had found it and bought it any other way. We simply take a small percentage of the sale price from the company or marketplace that sells the product, as kind of a ‘thank you’ for finding them a customer.
There are a lot of websites that operate this way and essentially market another company’s products for them. Some of them practice affiliate marketing more honestly and scrupulously than others. We always want to be upfront about what we do however, so you can make an informed choice about what you’re reading on the site.

Why Affiliate Marketing?
Simply put, affiliate marketing, along with advertising, is how we meet the website’s running costs. And maybe occasionally have enough money left over for a beer or two!
