Affiliate Disclaimer

What is Affiliate Marketing?

Affiliate marketing refers to the promotion of a product or service in return for a commission. When you purchase another product or service through one of my links I earn a small part of the sale. At no time is there ever any extra cost to you. The same product, if accessed through any other source besides www.jenniferdinsmore.com, would be the same price. Always.

I promise to never link to products or services I don't fully support or believe in. I will never tout a company if they are disreputable, or if I don't believe them to be worth the cost of the service. These links are not a scam.

Why do I use Affiliate Links?

A gal’s gotta eat, and being a freelancer is not the steadiest source of income. By using affiliate links, I am able to keep a roof over my head and the pets fed. 

The use of affiliate links also allows me to purchase new technology and/or services that may make your experience of the writing and editing process even better.

I currently partner with Story is a State of Mind/The Story Course.
