In our About page, we mention that we offer many of our products and services for free.
Even though we offer a lot for free, we aren't a non-profit company. You might be wondering: how exactly do we make money?
Naming Made Easy is the most obvious answer, but it's not the only way. To keep offering our services for free, we participate in affiliate marketing partnerships.
What does this mean? Essentially, if you purchase a product or service through our referral link, the service provider will pay us a commission.
Affiliate marketing is the primary reason we are able to keep our services free or affordable. Without it, our dream of helping anyone start a successful business, regardless of their budget, becomes much more difficult.
We'd rather try to do affiliate marketing honestly, instead of charging you more. Which brings us to...
Naturally, many people have conflict-of-interest questions with affiliate marketing. Here's how we try to navigate around that.
First, we only recommend products that we have used ourselves. For example, we host our blog on SiteGround, who we recommend in the website building guide.
With our main partner, Tailor Brands, Axel (our founder) designed a logo with them for his under-construction personal site. You can see it at the bottom of our Tailor Brands review.
Secondly, we try hard to recommend what we feel is the best option for you. We can't understand everyone's unique circumstances. But we do a ton of research and testing before we recommend any affiliate partner. We tend to focus on partners that balance a high-quality product with an affordable price.
Finally, we try to recommend products that you can try before purchasing. For example, with Tailor Brands, you can design your logo for free. You can even build your website using their website builder. Their pricing model eliminates a ton of your risk around purchasing.
We know that trust takes a long time to build. And it's a key part of how we run our business. I hope that this page helped you understand why we do what we do!
