FTC Disclosure Compliance Rules
In 2015, the Federal Trade Commission released their new rules for Disclosure Compliance.
The rules set in place are to ensure that the viewers or readers of any website media are well aware of whether the publisher or blogger has a sponsor, partner or is being endorsed with a different company.
Moreover, readers need to know if the content publisher is making any money if they opt to share a link or a product online.
In compliance with the FTC guidelines, please assume the following information when it comes to posts and links on Therapyjourney.co:
- All/any of the links on Therapyjourney.co are affiliate links for which I always receive a small compensation from the sales of certain items.
What Are Affiliate Links?
Purchases are always made on external affiliate company websites. Therefore, when a viewer or reader clicks on an affiliate link located on Therapyjourney.co, in a bid to buy any services. The reader or viewer is buying the services directly from the service provider and not from Therapyjourney.co.
Online Therapy services and other companies often pay Therapyjourney.co, a small commission or other compensations for helping to bring consumers to their websites.
As for prices, they are always the same for every consumer, whether they opt to make their purchases via an affiliate link or a non-affiliate link.
Take note that clicking a non-affiliate link and clicking an affiliate link does not in any way change the price of the product/service or anything else for that matter, for the online visitor.
Therapyjourney.co usually uses two main types of affiliate programs:
- Online Therapy Services affiliate links
- Therapy services affiliate links
Online therapy services affiliate links
Therapyjourney.co is a participant in online therapy service providers.
Some online-therapy services provides an affiliate-advertising program that is designed to provide a way in which, website owners can earn fees by just linking to their services, affiliated websites, as well as other websites that may be affiliated with their services.
What about sponsored content?
I for sure do not write any sponsored posts. I only provide authentic well-researched and unbiased information to my readers.
However, if for some reason a company wants to publish sponsored content on Therapyjourney.co, I will disclose it clearly at the beginning of the post.
The point is that I will only be recommending services/products that I use or those that I would recommend to friends and family to use, on this website.
On a lighter note, your purchases are likely to support my research and work within this niche.
