We earn money from this site to enable us to keep publishing. We derive income primarily from:
- Affiliate commissions
- Advertising and sponsorship
- Taking part in media trips and paid campaigns
Affiliate commissions. Affiliate links lead to third-party retail websites such as Amazon, Agoda, World Nomads, etc. We earn commission if you click on an affiliate link and make a purchase.
Amazon Affiliate Disclosure Notice: Breathedreamgo is 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. Prices and selection do change quickly on Amazon so you will need to confirm the price and availability prior to making your purchase.
Please contact us if you have any questions about any of the companies we partner with.
Advertising and sponsorship. Advertising is available on Breathedreamgo (the site, newsletter and social media platform) to ad networks and individual advertisers. Please ask for our Rate Card.
Very, very occasionally, we may accept a sponsorship from a like-minded brand, organization, or destination. Sponsorship of any kind will be clearly disclosed, and no-follow links will be used as per Google best practices.
As always, we will ensure that our content is fair, accurate, honest, and useful or inspiring to our readers. We will not compromise our integrity or your trust.
Media trips. As with most professional travel writers, we do accept press trips (also known as media trips and “fam” trips) from companies, destinations, and tourism boards.
These will be clearly disclosed and we will not allow the complimentary nature of the experience to influence our judgement. We will use the hashtag #mediatrip and a disclosure statement on the site; and the hashtag #mediatrip on social media.
Very, very occasionally we take part in paid blogger campaigns. These will be clearly disclosed and we will not allow the complimentary nature of the experience to influence our judgement. We will use the hashtag #sponsored and a disclosure statement on the site; and the hashtag #sponsored on social media.
Tours. We partner with tour companies to offer tours based on our own recommendations, experiences, and preferences. We would never offer a tour that we would not be delighted to take ourselves or to recommend to our friends and family.
Services. We offer services such as freelance writing, copy writing, and content / social media marketing. This is, in fact, where the bulk of our income comes from.
