The IRA Gold Advisor website is a professional review site and we may receive compensation from various companies whose services we review and recommend. We are an independent organization and the opinions expressed on this website are wholly our own.
Affiliate relationships are vital to our ability to offset the costs of running and promoting this website. We strive to present professional and valuable information for our visitors, and we value your patronage!
At this time, affiliate sponsorship relationships are the only revenue source our site has – we are a small site and hope to grow – but we simply do not have the amount of traffic needed to keep our site running without affiliate proceeds. For example, we are not able to run banner ads or other advertisements as a method of bringing in revenue to keep the site operational.
They basic idea of how this works is: If our site refers an interested person to our sponsor’s site, and that person then decides to become a customer/client of the affiliate, we are paid for referring the customer/client. It’s a simple referral method, very much like similar arrangements you’d find in the “offline” world.
By the same token, we are not paid in any way, shape or form for simple “traffic.” We receive absolutely no compensation unless our visitor’s decide to engage with our affiliates on a customer/client level once they reach the affiliates site (or perhaps contact them by phone).
Our Current Affiliate Relationships include:
Most, if not all, links from our site to our affiliates contain our affiliate ID in the link (which you can see if you mouse over the link and look at the URL in your browser’s footer bar – we never try and obfuscate those links), which is the way our sponsors identify that a visitor came from our site.
This allows our sponsor to track that our site was responsible for sending traffic, and to credit us if any action takes place on their site that could result in payment to IRAGoldAdvisor.com. Payments from the affiliates occurs primarily if a “sale” is made on the affiliated site, but can also accrue for actions such as becoming a qualified lead on the affiliated site.
We do politely ask that if you found our site useful and helpful, please do use our partner links when you’re ready to consider an investment! 😉 We are proud of our sponsors and really believe in their services, and it really is our only way of keeping the doors open on the site. THANK YOU!
Thanks so much for visiting our website! Please contact us with any questions you may have.
