When I learned about affiliate marketing, I was thrilled to discover that I could be paid to continue doing what I had already been doing for free for many years: recommending the products that have helped me solve problems to my friends and family who had the same problems needing to be solved.
Even in an online business, there are unavoidable costs associated with running and maintaining it, and affiliate links are a way to help offset these costs.
When you purchase a product through a link on my site, you receive it at the SAME COST, but a tiny percentage of the retailer’s profit is given to me for referring you. You win, because I have already researched and vetted the best solutions, and I win, because the companies I recommend reward me for connecting them with customers.
I am a happy capitalist. In his book, “Thou Shalt Prosper,” Rabbi Daniel Lapin calls every dollar earned in business a “certificate of appreciation” from your customers. I figure, if I can help enough moms Get More Life Out of Life, the money will take care of itself.
In compliance with the FTC guidelines, please assume the following about links and posts on this site:
Every link on ASmarterMom.com is an affiliate link from which I receive a small commission from sales of certain items, but the price is the same for you. If it is not a paid link, it is due to my dereliction of duty in that area, and it will become a paid link soon.
ASmarterMom.com is (or will be soon) a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to Amazon.com or endless.com, MYHABIT.com, SmallParts.com, or AmazonWireless.com. Pages on this site may include affiliate links to Amazon and its affiliate sites on which the owner of this website will make a referral commission.
Every product I write about on this blog, I personally use (or have used it in the past), support, and would recommend without an affiliate link. Many of the books I recommend I have actually given as gifts to friends and family.
Unless otherwise noted, all reviews are of items I have purchased myself and I am not paid or compensated in any way. This is a personal policy of mine as I want to make sure that all reviews are unbiased and of products I like and support enough to purchase myself.
My first priority is providing resources to help you create positive changes in your life and I will only ever link to products or resources (affiliate or otherwise) that fit within this purpose.
If you are going to purchase a product and would like to help support A Smarter Mom’s mission to help moms heal and enjoy abundant life, links to many of the products I use and recommend can be found on the Resources page. In fact, if you go through my Amazon affiliate link for any product, I will receive a small commission from anything you buy there within 24 hours. Again, there is no additional cost to you.
If you feel that my little labor of love on the web has benefited you and your family, you can help support my efforts by using any of the links for products. Thanks!
The following are companies I have or plan to have an affiliate relationship with:
Amazon.com – Most recommended products are:
Mountain Rose Herbs– Most clicked links are
Peaceful Planet – Where I personally order Fermented Cod Liver Oil,
GetBerkey – Where we bought our own water filter (that also filters fluoride). They sell the Berkey, the best water filter option I’ve found.
Athletic Greens – Best real-food greens powder I’ve found.
Thanks so much for reading ASmarterMom.com and if you decide to purchase something through any of my affiliate links, I really appreciate your support!
