We're Karen and Bill - and we want to be crystal clear about our role in affiliate marketing here.
Indeed, our all-encompassing goal is to be the most helpful, informative internet marketers that we can possibly be - and the best available for your needs in experiencing everything about our passions for palm trees. That is why we make free content and downloads available on missionpalmtrees.com
We're providing this Affiliate and Advertising disclosure to be in compliance and provide transparency for visitors of missionpalmtrees.com. This website is our personal site. [For more on who we are - See our About Us Page.]
Our main purpose is to provide you with great information about appreciating and enjoying palm trees in whatever form that may take.
Additionally our website accepts advertising and receives other forms of compensation.
We love living in our state of Arizona, in a climate where palm trees grow. Because of our passion for palm trees, we like to recommend to others relevant products which we have tried and found to be excellent. These are from companies we have personally bought from and trust in terms of their high quality products, cost-effective pricing, efficiency and personal service.
Those that we haven’t specifically used are carefully investigated, researched and vetted, possibly tested, so we can believe in them to ensure a high quality experience for visitors to our website. We hope our visitors will enjoy the same types of relevant products that we have used, or that we find to recommend for them.
Some of these companies have an "affiliate plan" of which we are a member. This means that when we recommend a product and provide a link to buy it, we receive a small commission whenever someone clicks through to the supplier and buys. Although not all links on this website are affiliate links, you should assume that all links that leave this website and take you to another website are affiliate links - if they immediately get to a way to purchase a product. You should expect that we will earn a commission if you follow links from our site and make a purchase.
But importantly, this does not involve any additional cost to you, the customer, our website visitor.
Not every business we recommend, speak about, or buy from ourselves has an affiliate plan. Some products or businesses we recommend or sell products from, we may not make money from. We simply recommend them because they're good quality and have a fit for our website purpose.
We have our "Affiliate Disclaimer" statement on most of our pages, as most have at least some of our affiliate links for recommended products. The Affiliate Disclaimer is there to be transparent for the fact that we use Affiliate marketing to provide income to fund the needs of maintaining this website.
We want to make sure it is clear that this website is indeed a for-profit venture and we want you to know exactly how income is generated from this website and why.
We have traveled throughout many tropical areas. We may provide links to, or some info on such subjects if they relate to the subject matter of missionpalmtrees.com.
Some of the companies with paid links may include travel companies which we believe provide great experiences. We offer this because we love to travel - and getting to varied areas with palm tree experiences, may include travel for you as well. We believe they may help find deals on something for your upcoming trip.
Booking.com is one example, as we use this source for all of our own travel - for anywhere we go. In fact the more you use it, the more you save! We use it all the time.
This is just one of the ways we provide additional options, so you can have fun but also save a little money in the process.
Another thing to note:
We Do Not Sell Anyone's Personal Information From This Website
The money from affiliate sales helps us to keep the content information on this website free to visitors to the site.
We also donate a portion of earnings to some Non-profit Organizations which have a special meaning for us, especially as citizens concerned with our community, state, international and environmental needs. They include:
From time to time, we inform our newsletter readers about purchase offers within our website. We may on occasion recommend to our newsletter readers certain products, activities, or places to go, related to affiliate promotions or agreements. We do this because of the value, our own experience, and/or our belief in the quality of the offer.
Companies with which We have an Affiliate Arrangement are as follows:
Special Statement About Amazon Products:
As an Amazon Associate we earn from qualifying purchases.
We love to read!
We really love to reading about palm tree related developments & subjects. For instance, palm tree groves, botanical gardens with tropical plants, palm tree identification help, recreation areas where palm trees are native, historical information, odd quirks, and other related informational books about palm trees. So we purchase many of our palm tree related books from Amazon.
We're always able to find what we want on their site, for reasonable prices. Plus excellent delivery options. So we recommend them because we enjoy buying books, plus other related palm tree items from them also.
Remember - Pricing is the Same
All of the products recommended on missionpalmtrees.com are also the same prices as if you were to find them on your own.
They are not priced higher in order for us to get a commission. If you make a purchase, you pay the same, either way.
"Ads by Google" are not selected by us. We are a Google ad affiliate, by using Google AdWords, to allow placement by them of a variety of ads on our website.
If you see a Google ad and a Web page or boxed alternative ad about the same product or service, the Google ad placement there is a coincidence. Please remember that the ads you see featured by "Ads by Google" are not selected by us.
The compensation earned from this site does not influence the information provided within this site.
We've lived in the southwestern U.S., for many years. Therefore we know quite a bit about the wonderful things to do, and wonderful areas to visit. Including places with gorgeous palm tree opportunities. We also want to ensure you have helpful, good and correct information at your fingertips.
Our goal is to provide you with quick and easy access to great information and related details about palm trees. Whether it is compensation based or not. We always provide honest opinions, findings, beliefs, or experiences since we want to ensure you enjoy our website experience and continue to come back for additional information and recommendations.
We appreciate your consideration of any of our suggestions. We enjoy creating this website for you - which does take some time and effort to deliver original content, free, to you.
We send you much appreciation for your support - any that you give. Whether it's just browsing and reading our webpages, viewing some of the ads, sharing/liking us on Social Media, or actually making purchases.
Our integrity, our website, the products that ÒMission: Palm Trees features for sale, and above all, your satisfaction are very important to us. If you have any questions or comments about this disclosure or about any of the products on this website, or anything else, please don't hesitate to contact us on our Contact Form>
Thank you very much!
Karen and Bill
