When you’re just starting out with your small business, you need all the help you can get. You want valuable, well-researched, honest data that you can apply in the real world to grow your business. Helping you out with these endeavors is the whole point of our project.
One of the issues every business encounters early on is funding. We’re no exception. All the effort we put into SmallBizGenius takes time, funds, and resources. So, you might be asking how we manage that. How do we fund our project without compromising our objectivity and honesty?
Popup ads are not only annoying but also cast a shadow of doubt on the validity of our reviews. That was never an option. The same goes for classic banners or sponsored content. So, how have we solved this conundrum?
Through the revolutionary concept of affiliate marketing.
What is affiliate marketing?
Whenever you visit a company or a product page through a link on one of our reviews, we get a small percentage as an intermediary. That’s it. We don’t write reviews on demand or adjust our opinions to anyone’s needs. We have but a single goal – to bring you the right information and answer your questions. The affiliate marketing concept lets us do just that with our integrity intact.
How does this affect you?
It doesn’t. You find the product you want to learn more about on our site, read our honest review and, if you’re intrigued by what’s on offer, visit that page. In many ways, it’s everyday business as usual. We’re not asking you for donations or fees; there’s absolutely no need for that.
The best way to support us is to visit the website you want through our referral links. This won’t negatively affect any offer on that website. Indeed, you might even get a better deal through our recommendations. Get a special promotion AND support your favorite small business adviser? That’s a no-brainer.
- Clicking on our links is completely safe and transparent
- There are no hidden fees or subscription requirements
- We won’t ask you for any personal data
- No one interferes with our reviewing process
- No one affects our choices
Just by reading our articles and reviews, you’re already becoming a valued member of our community. Your support in the form of a couple of clicks is all we need to continue our work.
Let’s support each other!
