Affiliate Marketing: Disclose Your Affiliate Relationship
It’s the law now, but that doesn’t make it any less meaningful to disclose your affiliate relationship to your readers.
Your readers know that manufactures or business owners are constantly sending out free products for bloggers to review. They also know you earn a commission if they click on your links.
Try to hide these facts from them and they’ll label you a deceiver. Reveal this information right up front and you’ll earn their trust for being open and honest.
Make it a point of duty to reveal to your readers that you area an affiliate of whichever product/service you are affiliating for. Leave them to decide if they buy through your affiliate link or not.
There is more tendency that your readers will buy from you if you reveal this to them always.
