The reality is that producing a podcast costs money, but I want to offer the Couple Money Podcast on different platforms (so as many couples can get it as possible) without being a financial burden for listeners. After giving some thought on the matter I want to share how this site helps support the show through advertisements and affiliate links.
Couple Money Podcast and Advertisements
My main goal is to maintain the resourcefulness of Couple Money Podcast for my readers, while introducing them to sites, products, and services which may be of interest to them. Keep in mind this is a personal finance podcast for couples looking at building their finances together.
On occasion these companies offer affiliation programs with content creators such as this podcast and site.
My policy is to be clear with my affiliate partners. I do use them for products and services that could be very useful to listeners. Many of these products are ones we currently use for our family, but not all of them. I work hard on choosing who to work with and I want to maintain the trust of you, my readers and listeners.
Before using any advertiser’s products or services, please evaluate them according to your personal financial circumstances.
Nitty gritty: Per FTC guidelines we state that we have a financial relationship with some of the companies mentioned in this website. This may include receiving access to free products and services for product and service reviews and giveaways.
Any references to third party products, rates, or websites are subject to change without notice. We do our best to maintain current information, but due to the rapidly changing environment, some information may have changed since it was published.
How Affiliate Partnerships Work
To explain, I’m going to give an example. Let’s say I mention and have a list of banking or investing accounts that could be save or earn you some money. After you look at the features, you decide to sign up. Whether it’s an affiliate partner or not, you’re to get the bonus or offer without any difference in costs to you.
You sign up for free checking, it will be free whether you use the link on my site or not. The difference is on my side. If you click through a link from this site and your account meets the qualifications (ex. you’re a new customer), then I get a small commission from the company. That money is used to pay for hosting and time spent writing and producing the show.
That’s basically the gist of it.
I think it’s a reasonable way to keep the lights on so to speak with the podcast, share financial products and service with interested ones, and keep the podcast free for download. However, if you’d like to suggest another viable options, I’m all ears – just contact me!
My Current Affiliate Partners
In case you’re curious (and I want you to be), here are some of my current affiliate partnerships that I’ve mentioned on the site:
- Capital One 360
- Unconventional Guides
I’ll try my best to keep this list updated, but contact me if you have any questions.
