Welcome to EricMelillo.com, a hub born out of dissatisfaction with the low-quality, self-serving digital marketing advice that’s all too common online. This space is dedicated to elevating the standard of advice available to bloggers and affiliate marketers.
If you’re here, it’s likely because you’re on a journey to grow your blog and achieve financial security through blogging and affiliate marketing. While we aim to offer superior, actionable advice, it’s important to disclose that some links on this site are affiliate links, which help sustain our platform.
What are Affiliate Links?
Affiliate links are specialized URLs used to track the traffic sent from EricMelillo.com to our affiliate partners. They contain unique identifiers, allowing affiliates to attribute sales or actions to a specific referral source like us.
When you choose to make a purchase through one of these links, we may earn a small commission. Rest assured, these commissions come at no extra cost to you and do not affect the price you pay. Affiliate commissions earned are reinvested into research, content creation, and maintaining the high-quality standards you’ve come to expect from us.
Affiliate Programs and Their Relevance
When choosing affiliate programs, we’re extremely selective, using a rigorous editorial process to guide our decisions on factors like market relevance, user demand, and industry trends. Our team of expert technology and marketing reviewers conduct this process via extensive hands-on testing and research so we may select only the best programs.
Our focus is on recommending only the highest-quality products and services that will genuinely help entrepreneur bloggers operate more efficiently, grow traffic, and maximize their affiliate revenue, all while aligning closely with our core mission.
Profits do not sway that core mission; instead, we’re driven by the purpose of being the best resource for all things blogging, affiliate marketing, and tech. We’re here to build trust, not profits. Whether it’s a tool for SEO, content creation, social media, or web hosting, if we recommend it, it’s because we use it ourselves, and/or we believe it could be a game-changer for you.
Transparent Earnings Disclaimer
Transparency is one of our core values, so it’s important we reiterate that we do earn a commission from purchases made through our affiliate links. Since these commission rates have similar payout structures, there’s no financial incentive to favor one product over another. As such, commissions will never influence our reviews, content, or recommendations.
Commitment to Honest Reviews
We realize that trust is hard to earn and easy to lose, which is why our commitment to delivering transparent, honest, and unbiased reviews is non-negotiable. Our reviews are based on meticulous objective analysis founded on predefined buyer criteria like performance, pricing, effectiveness, usability, security, and customer support.
Our impartiality is backed by our strong editorial process, which ensures that we earn commissions in a way that has little to no bearing on our objectivity. So, we never accept sponsorships that would compromise our editorial integrity, and we make sure to communicate our review methodology on review posts clearly.
We aim to provide a balanced evaluation, shedding light on the strengths and weaknesses of each product or service so that you can make a strategic and informed decision.
