I have chosen Wealthy Affiliate as my major Website Host. There’s a whole host of reasons for this, the first being cost!
Most of us know nothing about the in’s and outs of building a Website, much less how to Affiliate Market. The reason I want to show you, my fellow Massage Therapists, is so you can maximize every Marketing Dollar you spend.
Make Money While Making Money
Along with your site(s), you will get the Training to be able to understand how to sell products online! Join Amazon, EBay, Commission Junction, and more, as an Affiliate to sell products with no inventory needed, and get paid to do it! This is for less than other Web Hosting sites.
I have found it to be beneficial in increase my bottom line, and learning how to maximize my Websites fully. I now understand SEO, keywords, Affiliate Marketing, and how to build a site fast. With access to over 3000 Site templates, creation is a breeze… NO CODING EXPERIENCE NECESSARY!!
In 2015, the Federal Trade Commission released their new rules for Disclosure Compliance. These rules are set in place to ensure that readers or viewers of web media (blogs, Youtube videos, etc.) know if the blogger/presenter is sponsored, endorsed, or partnered with a different company. In blog terms, the readers need to know if the blogger is making money by sharing a link or product.
In compliance with the FTC guidelines, please assume the following about links and posts on this site: Any/all of the links massage-academics.com are affiliate links of which I receive a small compensation from sales of certain items.
What are affiliate links?
Purchases are made on external affiliate company websites: When a reader clicks on an affiliate link located on .com to purchase an item, the reader buys the item from the seller directly (not from massage-academics.com). Amazon and/or other companies pay massage-academics.com a small commission or other compensation for promoting their website or products through their affiliate program.
Prices are exactly the same for you if your purchase is through an affiliate link or a non-affiliate link. You will not pay more by clicking through to the link.
I use two main types of affiliate programs:
1. Amazon affiliate links.
massage-academics.com is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to Amazon properties including, but not limited to, amazon.com. Amazon offers a small commission on products sold through their affiliate links. Each of your purchases via our Amazon affiliation links supports our cause at no additional cost to you.
If a blogger links to an Amazon product (with a special code for affiliates embedded in the link), and a reader places an item in their “shopping cart” through that link within 24 hours of clicking the link, the blogger gets a small percentage of the sale. Amazon links are not “pay per click.” If you click on the product link and stay around Amazon and purchase something else, however, I will get commission on that sale.
Anytime you see a link that looks like astore.com/… or amazon.com… it can be assumed that it is an Amazon affiliate link.
2. Product affiliate links.
These affiliate links work the same way: if you click the link and buy the product, then the blogger gets a percentage of the sale or some other type of compensation. Things like e-book bundles, e-courses, and online packages are usually affiliate links, as well. Again, prices are not different if you use these affiliate links. You will not pay more by clicking through to the link. These links are not “pay per click”, unless otherwise denoted.
What about sponsored content?
I do not write sponsored posts. I want to bring you real, unbiased information. However, if a post is sponsored by a company and it is a paid sponsorship, I will disclose this clearly in the beginning of the post.

I, personally, am not as big of a fan of the Aluminum tables. I have found that they maybe lighter in carrying wight, the frame isn’t as dependable. My experience is that they tend to be ‘tippy’. Please remember though, this is from the aluminum tables “of old”. I’d like to hear if anyone has a different, or similar experience with this type of table.
