There are many websites out there solely focused on earning money instead of providing value to its readers; TechVise isn’t one of them. Having said that it doesn’t mean that we don’t earn or make money from this website, we do, but we keep a lose eye on what we promote. So without further ado, here’s how we earn money:
- Affiliate links: We’ve added disclaimers at the bottom of every page that has affiliate links. The money we earn from them currently pay towards the upkeep of the site, and ensure that its up to date with useful content. Any link that uses ‘/offer/’ in its url path is an affiliate link. Please be sure to check those out as in some cases we have been able to strike deals with the service providers for our readers. If for some reason, the service itself has stagnated or become poor, we remove our affiliate links and replace them with direct links.
- Sponsored posts: Yes in some instances, we take on a sponsored post. When we do, we take a hard look at the product, app or service that is being talked about to ensure that it is not being recommended just because its paid for. There is currently no mechanism to distinguish it however, we do very few of them in a year (about 2 per quarter).
- Ads: We run Google Adsense and Media Net ads as well as paid / sponsored advertising on our site. All these are extremely obvious, clearly labelled and don’t mean that we are endorsing such products.
