The following information is provided to inform you about our affiliates and how this website makes money.
The short version:
- Yes we have affiliates that serve adds ( listed below).
- Yes we collect commissions.
- Yes that’s how the internet works.
Slightly longer version is as followed:
this website was put together just like every other website built for service businesses. Its intention was merely to advertise and provide information about us to attract more business. It has worked out in that sense very well for many years. New clients have found us and much work has been generated from this site. We are thankful for that.
Then the recession came
and the work just wasn’t coming in as before. Certainly not enough to cover operating costs as they were. So we did what every hard working American did – we cut expenses and stream lined everything. This website came very close to being turned off. Thankfully we just made it through and work is plenty again.
We reinvented this website
during the recession. The purpose is just the same as before with the added goal of creating a residual income to support this site. If all goes well maybe more. That would be great. Anyways, we are providing content in our field of expertise and the relevant ads help pay for that.
How it works
Provided ads are in place on this site as additional relevant content and resource for you. Some affiliates pay us commission when you click on their ad. Others pay us a commission only if you make a purchase after being directed from this site. That is basically how the internet works for all affiliates.
How much does this site make from ads?
At the moment -just enough to support the hosting fees. Maybe it will develop into more, maybe not. As for now, 40 – 60 hours per week restoring furniture is what supports everything else and food on the table. Retirement is not coming anytime soon.
Who are our affiliates?
After being in business for many years, we have come to know many resources for the materials, supplies and services that help run our business. These resources are the affiliates we choose to work with to keep ads on this site relevate to our content. So in fact, we are basically giving you the information on our resources. It is a short list for now, but hope to be able to offer more in the future.
Currently the affiliates that pay us are:
