How I make money

You may not have noticed, but Take Charge of Your Money has no adverts!

I did try using Google Ads for a few months but I felt that it spoilt my site and cheapened my brand a bit. I know that it’s very common to visit sites with stacks of ads all over but I don’t really like it and decided to remove them.

So how do I make money?

You can visit my page on Brands I Trust to see a list of brands that I use myself and that offer some sort of referral fee. I am happy to promote these brands and products as these are things that I use myself and I know that they are good quality and professional companies. It would be great if you used the referral links, but you can go to sites directly too.

I also occasionally post sponsored content which means that a company either requests me to write on a specific topic, or they provide the content. These posts will always be marked with a bold title “Sponsored Post”. I am very picky about sponsored posts as I am only prepared to promote brands and products that resonate with my values and beliefs.

And what about if you see a page promoting a product but it’s not marked as sponsored? Well then it simply means I decided to promote something without any remuneration.

Finally, I am slowly building up a suite of products which I promote and sell. These are my own and I really hope that they are useful and helpful to all. You can find them on my Resources menu or in the sidebar.

Have your say
