Advertising & Affiliates

Sponsored content and advertising on Nicola Says

Nicola Says features some content which may be sponsored by a brand, written in collaboration in exchange for gifted products, or which contains affiliate links.

This page helps to explain more about each of these types of advertising and how they are labelled here on the blog.


Sponsored content

Any blog post or feature for which I’ve received payment in exchange for the content will be marked as “Sponsored” or “Collaborative”. The exact disclosure may vary depending on when the post was written, but I’m working through existing content to make this clearer.


Gifted products or PR samples

If I’ve received a gifted product or PR sample in exchange for content this will be clearly marked within the post. This usually relates to product reviews, gift guides, or where I might have featured a certain gifted product within a wider feature like a room renovation.


Affiliate links

This blog features affiliate links from time to time. Any post which includes affiliate links will have a disclaimer at the top, with affiliate links marked clearly within the post with a * alongside.

I’m a member of Amazon Affiliates and Affiliate Window*, meaning that if I direct you to their site/client’s site and you go on to make a purchase I may receive a small commission. This doesn’t affect your privacy and you won’t be charged any extra if you decide to buy anything. Presently I don’t earn any income from this, but it does open the doors for me to maintain this site without compromising on content.
