Affiliate, Earnings & Gambling Disclaimer

One of the reasons I started this blog is because there are so few like it already. I am creating a blog that I would like to read, and one of the things that I value the most is integrity. I would want to read a blog that was fully transparent, so one of my rules is full disclosure.

Please understand that this website is also a business. This website generates an income, and one of the streams of income is from affiliate marketing. You will notice throughout my posts that occasionally I link to other websites, products, and/or services. While not every link is an affiliate link, you should assume that if I am recommending a product and/or service, it is because (1) I use and enjoy that product and/or service, (2) I find a lot of value in that product and/or service, and (3) that I will receive a commission if you click on one of the affiliate links on my website and subsequently purchase something.

Now, I have an analytical mindset, and if I were visiting a blog such as this one, one of my concerns would be that the website was only out out to make money, and not have my best interests at heart. I assure you that while yes, this website is a business (a business that makes money), I put my readers first. I only recommend products and/or services that I personally use.

Sometimes, companies offer free access to their products and/or services in exchange for a review. While I don’t see anything wrong with this, I do realize how a psychological bias comes into play in these scenarios, and they could wrongly affect any review written. For this reason, I choose not to accept any free products and/or services in exchange for a review. Any product and/or service that I review on my website was purchased with my own money, and for the most part, with no prior knowledge from the company providing said product and/or service.

My reviews are completely unbiased, truthful and reliable. This not only affects my bottom line, but yours as well. Due to the subject nature of this website, my reviews and recommendations can have a direct financial affect on you, so I take these very seriously.

My reputation is at stake, and as I said earlier, this is a business. I treat it as such. I want you as a long-term follower and reader of TradeGrind. I want you to be active and involved. I want to create a community of sports bettors that generate an income from betting on sports. I can’t do that if I’m recommending products and/or services with the sole intention of just earning an affiliate commission.

It is my promise to you that I will never recommend anything that I don’t wholeheartedly believe in, but you should be aware that in the event that you purchase something through an affiliate link on my website, that I will more than likely be receiving an affiliate commission for referring that sale.
