You need a disclosure page on your blog if you make any money on your blog from other businesses.   You are required by law to disclose that you make money on your blog

Here’s a couple of examples:  you receive free product in exchange for a link or mention, you must disclose that. If you use affiliate links on your blog, you must have a disclosure policy in place.

Sometimes, just having a disclosure policy blog page may not be enough. 

If you write full sponsored posts about a company or product that you are endorsing, its a good idea for you to disclose at the bottom of the post that the post was sponsored, or that “this post is sponsored content” and don’t forget to let your readers know that all opinions are your own.  

I like to let them know that I’ve tested out the product myself and have used it and recommend only products I’ve personally tried.

Remember those free products or software definitely count as sponsored content.

Anytime you’ve received something in exchange for a post or mention…you are required to fully disclose that information.

Make sure you’ve got your bases covered with your privacy and disclosure pages.
