Affiliate Policy

This affiliate disclosure details affiliate relationships that Widow 411 has with other companies and products.

What is an Affiliate Link?

Affiliate links connect you to the products or services I recommend on my website. Some, but not all, posts on Widow 411 contain affiliate links. This means that if you click the link and make a purchase, I may receive a small commission.

Affiliate links don’t add any additional charges to your purchase. The item price is the same whether you use my affiliate link or not.

Not every link is an affiliate link, but some are. Affiliate commissions don’t influence the types of products or services I recommend. I will only tell you about products or services that I have vetted, and feel are truly valuable to you, whether that includes an affiliate link or not.

In other words, I’ll share resources that don’t earn me a commission also.

I may occasionally place banner ads on the site that will also result in a commission. Furthermore, some of the text/image ads throughout the site are Google AdSense ads.

Why Do I Use Affiliate Links?

Affiliate links simply help me maintain this website because it isn’t free. I appreciate your support when you use an affiliate link because it enables me to continue providing valuable resources and recommendations.

Keep in mind, I will only ever link to products or resources that I personally use or have used. Affiliate links on this website are trusted products and resources that I have already purchased myself. That’s why I’m sharing the information with you. I believe it adds value and makes your life easier.

You don’t have to use my affiliate link to make a purchase, but I’m grateful when you do. If you are going to purchase a product and would like to help support Widow 411, links to many of the products I recommend can be found on the resources page.

Affiliate Relationships

As I mentioned, I personally use every product for which I provide an affiliate link. However, these are third-party companies over which I have no control. If you make a purchase from a product I linked to and have any questions, problems or concerns with that product, please contact the company directly.

All efforts are made to ensure that affiliate links are disclosed in accordance with the FTC.
