Affiliate Links

Hi there! This page is just to let my readers and viewers know about how affiliate links and content work on my blog ( and my YouTube channels (@JohnElliotV and @ElliotsExtras).

When I provide links to products or services those links may be affiliate links for which I might earn a small commission if people purchase a product or service after having clicked the link.

Note that while it is my preference to provide an affiliate link where possible it isn’t always possible to do so, and in those circumstances I will post a normal non-affiliated link instead.

As affiliates are added to my blog or YouTube channel I will make notes here. Presently I have affiliate accounts with:

The YouTube policy for paid promotions is here: Add paid product placements, sponsorships and endorsements.

I don’t think my use of affiliate links on the blog really requires the “paid promotion” flag on the YouTube video, because the videos themselves are not paid promotions.

You can support my blog and my YouTube channel by clicking through on an affiliate link before you purchase something, you might also consider supporting me on Patreon:

If you have any thoughts or comments or questions about my use of affiliate links please feel free to get in touch via email to (put “Hi John” in the subject line to have a better chance of making it past my spam filter).

Here is a table of products I use which may appear in my videos with affiliate links to vendors if you would like to buy. The link given here won’t necessarily have the best price so please do shop around to see if you can find a better deal. If you have thoughts or questions please feel free to let me know. Let’s go shopping!
