Paid for Advertising
The Clandestine Cake Club is connected to several Affiliate programs in order to earn income to help with the cost of running this website which includes things such as:
- SMTP to ensure successful delivery of all Newsletters and emails that are generated via the website and groups.
- Website Hosting
- Technical support
- Affiliate Windows, one of the programs that CCC is also connected with, have more details about Paid for Advertising that you may find interesting.
Amazon Affiliate Associates
If by chance you were to buy either of the Clandestine Cake Club Cook Books via the Affiliate image links on the CCC website, or any other products via an affiliate link from the website, you will in fact be contributing to the upkeep of CCC because of the small percentage received from sales. There is at no extra cost to you, the purchaser.
Any blog post that contains an affiliate link will be highlighted in bold lettering or will include an Affiliate link ad. None of these links are an endorsement from CCC, but I will always choose a product or company that I am happy to be associated with and that I think readers will find useful and interesting.
All product reviews will state if and from whom the product was sent and if these were a gift or not. I like to be as open and transparent as possible. I receive lots of requests for reviews and often turn many down because they do not fit with the Clandestine Cake Club. There are plenty of websites and bloggers who know more about fashion than I do, so there is no point in me promoting and reviewing such things on here.
CCC is run by me, Lynn Hill and my trusty laptop in our spare room. All the group organisers are volunteers who love bringing their members together with friendship and cake. With the sale of the Clandestine Cake Club Cook Books and any money I generate through sponsorship and advertising, enables me to keep membership free to anyone who wants to join.
I hope this goes someway to explain why I have joined affiliate programs and why I accept sponsorship and advertising. If you have any questions I can always be contacted on Lynn@clandestinecakeclub.co.uk
