Affiliate Marketing Protocols
In 2015, the Federal Trade Commission released its new rules for Disclosure Compliance. These rules are in place to ensure that viewers of web media know if the presenter is working with a different company and their affiliations. In other words, you need to know if the blogger is making money by sharing product links! This also includes any sponsorship programs we’re involved with!
In compliance with the FTC guidelines, please assume the following about the material on this site; Any links featured on Pioneer Spirit Market are those for which a small compensation from sales of certain items.
What Are Affiliate Links?
Purchases are made on external company websites when a reader clicks on an affiliate link located within our site to purchase an item. The reader buys directly from the seller and companies (like Amazon) pay a small commission for promoting their material through their affiliate program.
Prices are identical if your purchase is through an affiliated or non-affiliated link! You will not pay more by clicking through our provided links!
How About Sponsored Content?
Pioneer Spirit Market only writes sponsored content for associates we believe in! There is research performed to determine whom we’re about to write about deserves the attention. Such sponsorships will come from companies that have a proven track record of integrity. We will not work with anyone who fails to meet our own community standards!
With that being said, sometimes you will see the Intellifluence logo among some of the posts within Pioneer Spirit Market. While they’re not really our sponsor, we do mention them as there are many just like us who are affiliated with them. They do this as a means to transition from their ground-floor operation to something higher. Again, however, unless there’s a clear indication of integrity stemming from anyone within the Intellifluence community, we won’t associate with them!
What are Pioneer Spirit Market’s Standards?
Both Pioneer Spirit Market and Pioneer Kitty Market are owned and operated by dedicated Christians. In other words, we will not bend rules for anyone! We prefer to keep it honest! Anything less than this is a compromise of spirit! Because of this, we won’t go there! A compromised spirit drags a person down, which contradicts the purpose of lifting spirits up! So, unless a sponsorship has shown evidence that they share the same values in this regard, we won’t give them the time of day!
This is a community standard that makes sense, at least to us. It’s about sharing mutual respect. That cannot be obtained by being dishonest!
