SimplyYesMarketing.com is a free resource site for online business entrepreneurs. I have been asked why I do all of this for free, or how I manage to make any money. This page was created to answer how I’m funded, and why it matters to you!
Why Is the Content on This Site Free?
I’ve been there as a small business start-up. It’s tough getting started, and often it comes with a minimal budget for tools and proper training. But to succeed online, you need both the proper tools, training and more. That’s where SimplyYesMarketing.com comes in.
I started SimplyYesMarketing.com in 2018 with a single goal: to become an online business guide that provides online business strategies that are easy to understand, maximize profit, and most importantly require minimal investment (with free being the optimal price).
MY GOAL IS TO HELP SMALL BUSINESS ENTREPRENEURS SUCCEED ONLINE WITH QUALITY TOOLS, TECHNIQUES, TRAINING, AND SUPPORT.
How Is SimplyYesMarketing Funded?
I believe in being honest and transparent with my audience. It’s the best way to build trust within a community.
Running a website like SimplyYesMarketing.com that helps thousands of users every month requires a significant investment. Both on content creation and back-end server infrastructure. I [currently] single-handedly create and maintain all of the tips, tutorials, video-walkthroughs, product reviews and every other aspect of this website.
So yes, I have to make money somehow, or I wouldn’t be able to maintain the site. Below are my two primary sources that fund SimplyYesMarketing.com.
Occasionally you may see some ads from Google or other online ad feed on this site. It’s not my favorite source of income, but sometimes you just have to do what you have to do to keep a site up and running.
Referral commissions (aka affiliate sales) are the primary source of income for this site. When you purchase services from products or companies that I recommend, I may make a small commission off of that referral. These affiliations don’t cost YOU anything! There are no price increases and no gimmicks. All commissions are handled on the back-end between the service provider and me.
Here are the affiliate programs in which I participate:
- Amazon – Physical Products
- Bluehost – Website Hosting
- ClickFunnels – Targeted Sales Funnel Pages
- Get Response – Email Hosting
- Funnelytics – Analytics for Sales Funnels
- Jaaxy – Keyword Research
- Namecheap – Domain Registrar and Website Hosting Solutions
- SEMrush – Search Engine Metrics Tools
- Wealthy Affiliate – Online Learning for Entrepreneurs
I only recommend products that I believe will add value to my readers and that fit my overall goal of helping you to succeed online. All the products that I recommend are thoroughly tested and reviewed. All opinions are my own.
Many of the biggest sites and top brands on the internet offer affiliate programs. Anyone can become an affiliate for eBay, Amazon, Google, Etsy, etc. Chances are, many of your favorite sites use affiliate marketing as an additional source of income. You might just not be aware of it unless you dig through their disclaimer material too.
I do not accept payments for positive reviews. If someone contacts me for a sponsored review, I clearly state that I will maintain an unbiased opinion of their product or service. Sponsored reviews are clearly marked as such on the review page itself within this site. My readers come first. Fake positive reviews don’t help anyone.
What Do Affiliate Links Look Like?
Affiliate links can come in a few different forms. Sometimes an affiliate link might be in a banner format like this:
When you click on one of these ads or an affiliate link and make a purchase, a special cookie tracks the click. The 3rd party company may provide Simply Yes! Marketing with a small commission for the referral. This in no way affects the price of the product or solution you’re buying.
The referral commissions are different for each product. Some affiliate programs are very generous and offer 50% commission, while others may only offer 5% or $1 on a $25 product. It really all depends on the product. I use affiliate links because every little bit counts. I’m not all about just trying to find the best-paying products or services. In fact, many of the products I review may not have an affiliate program at all. Again, my readers come first.
Most Common Questions Readers Have
Will it cost me more if I click on a product you recommend?
Nope. Never. In fact, in some cases, you might actually save money by purchasing a product, tool, or service through a link on SimplyYesMarketing.com. As an affiliate, I sometimes get access to promotions and deals that you wouldn’t otherwise have access to.
Do you see my personal data or purchase information?
No. All of your personal data is kept private by the company through which you make the final purchase. The only data I see is that a purchase of product X was made on such a date/time by an anonymous user as a referral from my site.
