How We Make Money

Millennial Money Man makes money by promoting third-party companies, known as affiliates. While this is how we support our site, our content, reviews, and comparisons are based on analysis, not compensation.

Our company believes in transparency; sharing how we make money is integral to that goal. You will see an affiliate disclosure at the beginning of any blog post that contains affiliate links. These are links that third-party companies provide us with to share with our readers, and we may be paid when you click on a link, sign-up for a service, or make a purchase through those links. Additionally, some content on our site is sponsored by third-party companies, and these articles are known as sponsored posts. The companies who pay us for sponsored posts reach out to us (sometimes we reach out to them) and offer to pay us in exchange for blog posts, emails, and/or social media posts that promote their company. All sponsored posts are clearly labeled as such, and while the content is sponsored, all of the views and opinions are 100% our own. Our site also makes money by featuring specific affiliate partners over the course of the year. These partners are featured prominently on our site and only in posts where they may be useful to readers. Any post with a featured partner spot is clearly labeled as such and taken down once the partnership has ended. And finally, we occasionally participate in display advertising using third-party ad networks.

We are selective with the companies we work with. The goal of our content at Millennial Money Man is to enrich our readers’ financial lives, which is why we only work with companies that we feel will bring value to the lives of our audience, and our partnerships give these companies a unique opportunity to engage with our readers.

Many of the companies we work with are ones our team has first-hand experience using. If we don’t have first-hand experience, we spend a great deal of time vetting the company before we ever introduce them to our readers. The integrity of our content is at the core of what we do.

We never hide or conceal how we earn money, and our highest priority is to produce honest and accurate content despite our partnerships. We adhere to strict FTC standards to ensure transparency and compliance.

The income earned through affiliate marketing, sponsored posts, featured partnerships, and display ads are used to support our growing team of employees and independent contractors who work to bring you up-to-date, accurate, researched, and helpful content.

Our team works to keep up with industry news and trends that affect how we partner with different companies, and we update our content as we learn about new features, pricing, and terms. If we find that a company has made changes and no longer aligns with our readership or our core tenets, we will terminate the partnership immediately.

We value the opinions and feedback of our readers, and we encourage you to reach out if you ever have concerns about a company we partner with or how we make money.
