Barefoot Web Designs, LLC Linking Policy

I’m an entrepreneur, and I love the internet. And I don’t think it’s any big secret that I make a living on the internet. It’s nothing I try to hide, and in fact, I’m proud of it. More people should do it.

As long as you do it legitimately.

There’s nothing worse than the scammers, con artists, and scumbags out there pushing things like get rich quick schemes, Acai berry miracles, male enhancement pills, and other crap. I promise never to do that.

However, I will occasionally review and endorse products on this site. In some cases, I may have received a free copy of the product in order to review it. In some cases, I may decide to become an affil­i­ate of the product. How­ever, I do not accept payment for any product reviews, nor do I participate in link exchanges of any kind.

I may choose to become an affiliate of products which I believe are truly helpful to my readers, which means I may receive a commission on purchases made through any links I provide. However, any recommendations I provide are made first and foremost based on the merit of the product. I make them either because of my true review of the product, the product’s value and quality, or based on my knowledge of the author’s expertise on the subject and his/her reputation. And, there are many times I talk about a product I like without any affiliate relationship with that product at all.

That said, beginning December 1, 2009, the FTC required bloggers to provide disclosures whenever there could be hidden interests or unspoken biases related to recommendations.

So, while it certainly is not always the case, you should assume that I have an affiliate relationship and/or another material connection to the providers of goods and services mentioned on barefootwebdesigns.com.

You should always perform due diligence before buying goods or services from anyone via the Internet or offline.
