FROM JOE (et. al.);
(And updated on May 16, 2023)
Firstly, and as always, thank you for visiting joetrevors.com. Sincerely. Should you have any questions about the information on this or the other pages, you are always more than welcome to contact me.
Ok, let’s get to it by starting with Affiliate Links/Promotions:
Federal Trade Commission Declaration
The FTC (Federal Trade Commission) in the US requires me to tell you if any links or adverts are paid for, or offer payment via commission. Although I am not a US-based business, I have declared how we work on this page to be completely transparent, as we may very well have people following us from countries requiring such disclosure who may wish to exercise links from my site.
Some of the links on this site are affiliate links. This means that if you use a link to purchase, you are contributing to income that we use in covering the costs of delivering the otherwise free, hopefully informative insight throughout the site.
PLEASE NOTE: Your price for any product(s) or service(s) linked in anything I do or mention, remains absolutely the same regardless of an affiliate agreement with the producer/manufacturer, retailer, or provider.
It is equally important that you know that I evaluate before recommending. In other words, my recommendation isn’t ever based simply on what I may be paid for recommending such product(s) or service(s)!
What Does “Affiliate Marketing” mean?
An affiliate is an individual or company that may sell or recommend products or services of another company, and who makes a commission from that sale.
The bottom line is that a website, individual or company (in this case, me) is an affiliate of a company they create a relationship with, and who has agreed to compensate that website, individual, or company for any sales of their products or services made through them.
How I work As An Affiliate (and equally WITH Affiliates)
If you haven’t seen my ‘About Joe‘ page, please let me introduce myself; I am the owner, creator and main author for and of this site. I have created it so as to provide one central ‘landing site’ or ‘hub’, if you will, for Joe Trevors as a ‘brand‘. A place where you can regularly visit in finding resources, opinions, studies and relatable content, and the like on everything I’m involved in.
It is, in part, to ensure an awareness of Functional Nutrition, Lifestyle, Genomic Testing & Analysis, and other treatments, modalities, and options for those battling with or diagnosed with chronic illnesses. While I certainly also openly discuss how we do provide clinical services – with my certifications/registrations as both a Certified Functional Nutrition Counsellor, and a Registered Naturotherapist in Canada, this site is not at the discretion or under direction from any school or association in so much as the viewpoints and information I share or discuss within articles or pages.
It is also, in equal part(s) to provide context (and content) on the work I do in Mindfulness teaching, Optimal Performance Leadership Coaching, and as a NeuroChange Practitioner.
We also share news and exciting announcements around newly-authored pieces I publish, speaking engagements I’m doing (or have done), and more…all from one site.
My zest and search for optimal health (of all types; physical AND mental – body and mind, gut and brain) began as a personal project, and so it is not underwritten, sponsored or supported by any institute or related organization which may otherwise be viewed as having the leverage to influence my opinions, nor the science I try and present in as open a nature as the studies and labs themselves provide me access to. Understanding that some do operate in a more ‘influential’ (or ‘influenced’) means, I have instead chosen to operate (and thus also this site, and others related to our brand(s) in such a way as that fees for our services, as well as related affiliate forms of compensation provide income. Again, however, neither the fee for service (or programs or packages), nor this affiliate form of compensation influence the information in this site. Those who know me know I have opinions, I do my best to ‘do my homework’, and to be aware of ‘the goings-on‘ of my industry (and related industries), and strive for knowledge, always.
If I ever claim or appear to be in any form an ‘expert’ on a certain topic, product or service, I either am through training and certification, or first-hand experience, or we’ve inadvertently misspoken in such a way as to have had you think so. If you’re ever not certain as to which it is, ask.
As to endorsements or recommendations, I will only endorse products or services that I believe are worthy of endorsement, based on my experience, training, or certification (including such equal experiences, trainings, or certifications of a colleague – should they also be involved). Regardless, and as I remind you quite frequently (about me, or anyone/anything you’re seeing or hearing ‘out there’), any product claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should absolutely be verified by you, and through your own independent review, with the manufacturer, retailer, grower, or provider, etc.
So…what’s this all mean in fewer words? As I result of how I’ve chosen to earn supportive income in my various businesses, I am also (legally) considered an ‘affiliate marketer’ by way of ever sharing affiliate links with you (despite it being such a small part of who we are and/or what we do). And throughout the pages on this and related brand/owned sites, you will encounter affiliate links to products and services that I recommend as an affiliate (some may have no affiliation whatsoever, but are links nonetheless – but it would be so unbelievably time-consuming to individually show which are, and which are not, that for sake of time and resources, we say ‘all’ in order to be fully transparent with you).
Bottom Line: When you click on these links and purchase the product or service (et. al.), I may receive a commission from that sale. You pay no more (and may potentially pay less – if I’ve negotiated that with the provider, but assume you pay the same amount unless otherwise noted savings are expressed), and this is how I am compensated for the time and energy that goes into publishing content.
I choose affiliate links carefully, and only suggest products I either believe in, understand to be useful to those I serve, and/or buy myself. In some cases, I recommend a product I already own, or a service I’ve tried. And in other cases, I suggest services or products that others have tried and given me seemingly qualified feedback on.
Yes, if you do buy any products or services through links on this site, you may be helping me to continue to bring you information on this site, and support the ‘bottom line’ of our Practice and business.
And, sincerely, I thank you for your support of our work.
That said, please, you can equally choose to ignore all links completely, and I’ll take absolutely no offence. None.
Always remember: You do not have to buy anything through any links or suggestions on this website. This website is and will always remain free to use and read and enjoy.
What Products And Services Am I An Affiliate For?
Special statement about Amazon products
I am a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for us to earn fees by linking to Amazon.com and affiliated sites and products.
Other Affiliates from whom I earn commission
From time to time I may also mention other people, products or services, Practitioners or Colleagues in articles, ads, etc. Should there be specific, ongoing partnerships of an affiliate nature, I will endeavour to list them (specifically) on this page and under this heading. Otherwise, as mentioned above in interest of time, you can assume they are all affiliated relationships, even though some or many may not be.
I should also make this invitation; Please DO NOT use this website if any of the above or contained information on this page or site is something you are in disagreement with. I have not knowingly nor intentionally forced you to utilize, recognize, regard, nor follow this site (nor any of the links, studies, information, or connected material) and so you should feel it is completely within your rights to simply disregard it in all or in part.
IMPORTANT REMINDER (which we’ve been asked to share again): Any product or service contained within any part of this site (or related branded sites) does not ever cost more for you to purchase through an offered link on here, than if you were to buy it directly from the provider, manufacturer, retailer, etc., bypassing my links entirely. Whatever you are directed to by said link(s) is offered at the discretion of the seller or manufacturer or provider of the product, who offers to pay me/us what they feel is a commission from their income reasonable so as to not negatively impact their bottom line, but provide them a greater audience than they may have otherwise had without our assistance or mention.
Ads by Google
“Ads by Google” are not selected or created by me (if ever found on our site(s)), so if you see a Google ad and a web site about the same product or service, it is merely a coincidence, and is unlikely to be an ad drafted or endorsed by me/us in any way.
