What Is An Affiliate?
Great question as this is the main way we make money through our blog in order to continue to bring you continuous, great content. Being an affiliate is somebody who is partners with advertisers and organizations who share the same belief as we do, to help you achieve greater exposure to everything learning, development and training.
When you are reading through our blog posts you will see yellow text, these are our affiliate links and every time you click on one of these links and make a purchase, we receive a small commission at no cost to yourself.
We are here to inform and empower you to make the best decisions for you when exploring the world of virtual and online learning.
So Why Should You Trust Us?
One of the biggest questions people have on blogs, especially blogs who have a focus on reviews, is are we swayed by are affiliates partners and will we give a true, unbiased opinion in our reviews with this in mind.
What I would say is the following: We are strong advocates for honest, open reviewing of educational products and will not be swung by any third party compensation received and this will not affect negatively our integrity as reviewers in this space. We will be reviewing products from companies we are both a partner of and also where there is no affiliation at all.
If we review a product it is because we absolutely believe in it’s benefit and value to you as prospective learners and potential consumers, we will promote it to you, if this is not the case, we would rather keep our editorial integrity intact and give you a true review of the product rather than tell you it is in your best interest when it clearly will be detrimental to your learning journey.
For example, if we were to review a video conferencing platform to allow you to engage in breakout rooms but then you find out this functionality does not exist, we would be in breach of our values laid out in our about page.
Due to the amount of time we spend researching the products for review making sure they meet our company criteria, e.g. meeting the high expectations we have in providing you the highest quality products possible, we will not review products that do meet this bar.
