Thank you to Christopher S. Penn for his brilliant presentation on Disclosures and for inspiring me to write my own disclosure page without too much legal jargon. I have adapted his words and ideas into my own, as best as possible, to convey what is happening on my website.
While I primarily use my site as a mechanism for sharing my love of marketing and helping students, practitioners, and professors connect with one another, I also use it as a means of practicing what I preach (e.g., Internet Marketing). This is my personal lab for learning and experimenting with the various tools that can be used to conduct and teach marketing on the internet. I also use my site as a source of generating income. Let me repeat, I use this website as a source of generating income and if you have a website, I encourage YOU to monetize your website TOO.
I develop marketing relationships with reputable merchants by placing their advertisements such as text links, graphic buttons and banner ads on my website. Below is one such example:
I show advertisements from companies like Tiny Prints and Shutterfly in order to get paid a commission from companies where I am an affiliate. Please assume that I’m getting paid by someone if you purchase something from my site. Although I do my best to work with merchants that may interest my readers, I am not responsible for their advertisements, products, and services since I have no control over them. I do take time to carefully review the products and offers before placing their links on my website. I promise to only include products that I truly believe in and would (or do) use myself. You are not obligated in any way to buy from the merchants that I have affiliation with; I only provide the links for your convenience.
I reserve the right to do whatever I want on theresabclarke.com including updating, editing, and deleting information without warning or notice. You have this same right on your own site so make it great! You also have the right to leave my site at any time.
