In accordance with basic FTC law, I am required to disclose that there are certain products and links to those products on my site that I will earn an affiliate commission for any purchases you may make.
Hold up — “what's affiliate marketing?” You may be wondering.
Basically, I have unique links for certain products/services that when a person clicks and buys said product, I receive a small commission. It's kind of similar to how sales people at some clothing shops (like Lululemon) get commissions based off their total sales. Except I'm doing it online.
Understand that my goal with this blog is to inspire people to learn to code. And show them the best way to do it.
While I wish I could sit back, learn to code and write all day — I do have expenses. Which is why I include affiliate links for certain products/courses/services.
Likewise, some of the podcast episodes and blog posts you'll see on LTCWM are sponsored by some awesome companies. I only work with companies who have products and services that can help my readers and listeners.
I see this as a win-win-win situation. The sponsors get to tell you about their products, I get compensated for the time and money I spend on LTCWM, and you get to find out about tools that can help you learn to code and advance your career. Woo!
My primary goal is to help readers.
Therefore I only include products and services that I actually think are worthwhile and useful. And, for the most part, those that I have personally used. (The exception to this is several books that others have recommended during an interview.)
Please do not spend money on any products, courses, books or services I mention on the site unless you feel you need them or they will aid in reaching your goals.
While about 95% of the links, photographs, content, etc. on Learntocodewith.me has no material connection to the brands, products, or services that I have mentioned, it’s easiest to assume that any link you come across is an affiliate link.
However, full disclosure, the affiliate programs I am currently enrolled with include:
- One Month
- Team Treehouse
- Code School
If you have any questions about why or how I use affiliate marketing on the site, contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I'd be more than happy to answer any questions you may have. Personally, I think affiliate marketing is an amazing tool that not enough website owners take advantage of.
