I think it’s good to see the type of things that can, and do go on in the background on forums, blogs and YouTube channels. This sort of thing goes on all the time…and nothing is usually what it seems. Now I know this is about my own content on other sites, but all the same, to monetise it, come to an arrangement or have affiliate links removes objectivity and honesty. For me it’s a hobby, not a business, so I have obviously not replied.
I am #######, affiliate marketing manager at ###### ######. I stumbled across your blog/YouTube channel and wanted to say that the content you are creating is really impressive! Honest reviews are something you really have to search for these days.
As we are coffee lovers ourselves, I was wondering if we could collab on any level? We offer over 300 different models of coffee machines, over 300 types of coffee (some of which we are making ourselves), many accessories, and care products. If you are interested, we could even do a long-term partnership.
I see you don’t use any affiliate links at the moment but your content is really great and you could monetize it easily without adding attention-grabbing ads.
I don’t want to overwhelm you with more information if you are not interested, so please get back to me so we could discuss this partnership opportunity.
Have a great day!
I received this a short while ago, sadly it goes on all the time and almost guarantees honest reviews are something you have to search for. I received an approach from another company earlier this year (might have been them) to actually do a forum tie up deal
