At Cup of Java Productions, we are about being open and honest with our viewers, so we always want to disclose any changes or affiliations. As of today, Cup of Java Productions is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to Amazon.com. In addition, we recently signed up for a Zazzle Store to sell our official merchandise. Cup of Java Productions will continue to look for new opportunities to fund our productions and websites. We appreciate your support.
The reason for our decision to join affiliate programs, in addition to Google Adsense, is to continue to create YouTube videos, maintain our website and provide new content. We weren't part of any affiliate programs before, only Google Adsense, but we got so much positive feedback from viewers of our previous product reviews that someone recommended we join affiliate programs. Our previous reviews and product endorsements were NOT part of any programs or reimbursements. They were products that we paid for and loved, so we wanted to spread the word. This will not change. We will still only review and endorse products and services that we love. As always, thank you for your continued support and understanding. We appreciate you.
The other bit of news that we would like to share is the introduction of a new blog, "Hot List." The Hot List will consist of products and services that we think will help our viewers. Please feel free to give us feedback and let us know what you like and why.
