1. Personalized Introduction
At Essential Home and Garden, our mission goes beyond providing quality information on gardening, lawn care, home appliances, pest control, and more. We are dedicated to creating a community where readers can find trustworthy advice, practical tips, and honest product reviews. To support our efforts in offering free, high-value content, we utilize affiliate marketing, a practice we transparently explain below.
2. What are Affiliate Links
Affiliate links are specific URLs containing an affiliate’s ID. When a reader clicks on these links and subsequently makes a purchase from the merchant’s site, we receive a small commission. This commission supports our work but does not add any additional cost to the purchase. These links are a vital part of how we can continue to provide quality content at no charge.
3. Affiliate Programs and Their Relevance
Choosing affiliate programs is a task we undertake with utmost care and responsibility. We focus on promoting only those products and merchants that meet our stringent quality criteria. Partnering with well-established platforms like Amazon, Wayfair, CJ, Impact, and Shareasale allows us to recommend products from stores that are highly rated, trustworthy, and known for excellent customer service.
4. Transparent Earnings Disclaimer
Transparency is key to our operations. While we earn a commission from purchases made through affiliate links, our readers should rest assured knowing our primary guiding principle is the quality and suitability of a product. Potential commissions are secondary considerations and never influence our endorsement of products. The price you see is the price you pay, unaffected by our commission.
5. Commitment to Honest Reviews
Your trust is paramount to us. Our product reviews are prepared with integrity, focusing on the merits of each item. This includes an assessment of quality, fitness for purpose, customer support availability, price, safety, and more. Our commitment to unbiased reviews ensures that potential commissions never cloud our judgment, giving you the honest advice you seek.
