UltimateFatBurner.com generates revenue by…
- Displaying Google Adsense and Chitika ads on the content pages of this site. Google shares a portion of the advertising revenue with us on a monthly basis.
- Selling ad spots on this web site.
- Earning commissions on recommended diets, e-books, supplements, diets and so on. Some (but not all) of the merchants who have recommended products on this Web site pay us a commission on the sales generated.
While our detractors like to suggest that earning a commission on select products tarnishes our credibility, here’s the bottom line…
It would be extremely short sighted for us to recommend a product or service that is not in your best interest. The reason why this site has been so popular for so long is that we do not engage in such practices.
We purchase and review every product or service we recommend. If it’s a diet e-book, we’ll read it and post a review. If it’s a worthwhile purchase, we’ll tell you. If it’s not, we’ll tell you that, too. In other words, we earn our commissions by providing you with a valuable service – by ensuring you don’t waste your money on a product that either doesn’t work or is not right for you!
What it comes down to is this…
While it is unethical to promote inferior products to your audience for no other purpose than financial gain, it is not unethical to introduce your audience to good products and services that make their lives easier. The latter is what we do.
Q: I have a product/service that may be of interest to your audience. How can I advertise on this Web site?
Q: I have a product/service sold online through an affiliate program. How do I get you to present this product to your audience?
Q: I just read a negative review of a product, and at the same time an ad in the right/left hand column was promoting this same product. What the heck is up with that?
Q: Do you actually like any products? Where can I find a list of recommended products and fat burners?
Q: I’d like to submit a request for a review. How can I do that?
Q: Who are you guys, and why should I “listen” to you?
Q: A fat burner retailer keeps sending me a new shipment of products every single month, and I can’t them to stop. What can I do?
Q: Are you guys hiring? How can I get a job working for UltimateFatBurner.com?
Q: Do you receive commissions on products you recommend? If so, how can I trust such recommendations to be credible?
Yes, we do earn a small commission on the referred sales of some (but not all) products. We occasionally receive e-mail from individuals who question our ethics, credibility, and integrity for doing so. The fact of the matter is that it is not unethical to earn commissions on referred sales, provided those referrals are made in the best interests of our visitors. In other words, if the science and supporting evidence behind the product merits a recommendation, we’ll make it (you can read a full discussion of the criteria required for an UltimateFatBurner.com recommendation on this page). If it doesn’t, we don’t. It’s that simple.Many people are looking for credible products that will help them attain their goals, so such referrals provide a valuable service.You’ll also notice that our recommendations are frank, honest, and reflective of reality. For instance, in a recent review of Biotivia’s BioForge, Elissastates…
“… Bio Forge looks like it could provide a modest boost to a fat loss program and assist with retention of lean body mass.
But the key word here is modest. NONE of these ingredients are new or “revolutionary”, after all. They’ve been used in supps before, so it’s not hard to get a handle on just what to expect from a formula like this.
Basically, someone who’s mildly zinc deficient (which is common enough) and has some surplus fat to lose will likely see some good, initial results with this product. But no one’s going to get big on it—and if you’re zinc-sufficient and already have some muscle on your frame, I doubt it’ll do much of anything for you… the effects will be subtle, at best.”
This is followed by a link where you can purchase the product, should you so desire. And yes, we would receive a small commission from such a purchase. But if you do buy the product, you are doing so on an accurate assessment of products abilities, based on a thorough analysis of the ingredient profile. No touting of outrageous hype. No “upselling” or exaggerating the benefits in order to earn a commission.
Secondly, there are real costs involved in running a large site like UltimateFatBurner.com. Not only is it my full time job, we have several employees on staff. As you can imagine, nobody works for free. Many times too, we sample the products we review—and that also incurs a cost.
We need to supplement our ad revenue income with referral commissions in order to stay afloat. Remember, there are no fees to use UltimateFatBurner.com, nor do we have any interest in moving to a paid membership format. It’s more important to us that everyone have access to impartial, science-based reviews.
Yes, it pays to suspicious and skeptical, when so many online review sites make their living referring visitors to overpriced, overhyped products for huge referral fees. But if you read our reviews, and our frank assessments of the various retailers’ claims, the difference should be obvious. After all, UltimateFatBurner.com is the only 13-year supplement review web site on the Net.
That alone should speak volumes.
Q: I was just on another review web site, and its highest rated products receive terrible reviews here. Why is that?
Q: I just finished reading a review on another web site, and the author gave the product high marks on the basis of re-order rates and testimonials. Why don’t you guys do that?
Q: I just made a comment and it hasn’t shown up on the page. How come?
Q: My comments have not been posted. What’s up with that?
