As wplessons is a free and open resource, I have often been asked the question, why is it free and how do you justify the time spent creating content?
So here's a little background info.
Why is wplessons free?
Whatever the business, if you are starting out, then having a large budget is usually not an option. WordPress offers a simple cheap solution to get you started. However, it can be hard for a beginner to get their head around all the information as WordPress is incredibly large. There are a vast amount of topics that can bog you down very easily. So I created wplessons in order to give you a simple step by step guide to creating beautiful websites. You will never be charged for any information. I consider it a way of giving something back.
How is the site funded?
As the site is growing in popularity then so do the costs of running it. Some of the products and reviews contain affiliate links - this means that if you purchase something through one of the links then we receive a small commission. Commissions vary from a few cents upwards and it all depends on the product. Please note that it does not cost you a single cent extra. It's just a way of the company rewarding us for bringing them a new customer. If anything it sometimes works out cheaper as we like to try to get good deals for our readers.
To identify an affiliate link it will have the /go/productname after the wplessons.com URL
for example - https://wplessons.com/go/siteground/
If you wish not to purchase through our link then a quick google for the product will lead you there.
If you do purchase a product through our affiliate link then thank you very much! You are helping keep the site alive! If not, then we won't fall out over it either!
Do you then get my details?
Not at all, all we are told is that some anonymous user has bought a product through one of our links. We don't see your name, email address or any other information about you.
Affiliate Links disclaimer
This part is extremely important and I want to assure every reader of something.
I am very open and transparent about the fact that I do not offer affiliate links to products that I do not use or trust. The internet is full of marketers that promote products and claim large affiliate fees, they don't care about the product quality one single bit. I don't work that way simply because I would have a guilty conscience if I referred someone to a rubbish web host or paid plugin.
So any product promoted here is either one that I use and trust, or else one that my closest colleagues trust.
