TechDeskBlog.com is one of the top growing free IT & Technology, Web Design & Development, SEO, Blogging, etc. resource sites. A common question we often get asked by our readers is why do you offer everything for free? And it’s usually followed up with how do you make money?
So we’re creating this page to answer How is TechDeskBlog.com funded, and Why it matters to you!
Why is TechDeskBlog.com Free?
We started TechDeskBlog.com in 2020 with a single goal to deliver high-quality written content to view for all audiences around the world for free.
How Is TechDeskBlog.com Funded?
We have always believed in being honest and transparent with our audience. In our opinion, that’s the only way to build a community.
Running a top-growing website like TechDeskBlog.com that helps many users around the world every month requires significant investment. Both on the server infrastructure part as well as on the content creation part.
We create and maintain hundreds of free written content.
So yes, we have to make money otherwise we would have to shut the site down. Below are two primary sources that fund TechDeskBlog.com.
Source No. #1 – Google Adsense
Now we raise our operating budget through Google Adsense (a program run by Google).
Source No. #2 – Referral Fees
On my site, I might recommend referral products. I earn referral fees when you buy services from companies that I recommend.
I only recommend products that I believe will add value to my readers. I only recommend products that I’ve used and loved. I would never knowingly be a referral to a product that is misleading, a scam, or does not work. I thoroughly test and use all products that I recommend. All opinions are my own, and I do not accept payments for positive reviews.
This monetization method is called affiliate marketing. The biggest brands on the internet offer affiliate programs such as Amazon, eBay, Google, etc. Many of your favorite sites use affiliate marketing to pay the bills.
The only difference is that not everyone tells their users how they make money.
Sometimes you will see banner ads like these:
Other times, you will see a special link unique to each website that tracks referrals such as:
When you click on these links, you are tagged with a special cookie to track the referral. If you end up buying the product, then they pay us a referral fee.
The referral fees vary for each product. For a ‘Blogging Learning Book' that you may buy at Amazon, we might earn $1. For a premium WordPress theme, we might earn $10.
Question #1 – Will it Cost Me More Money?
No, absolutely not. In most cases, our deals will actually save you money.
Because TechDeskBlog.com is a top-growing authority site, a lot of vendors offer our readers exclusive discounts.
Please check out our Deals page to find more deals.
Question #2 – Do You See My Personal Details?
Nope. We don’t see any personal information i.e name, email, address, credit card, etc.
The only thing we see is that an anonymous user made a purchase on date/time and which product they bought.
