Software Research and Development – FTC Disclosure
Worldwide IT community is growing everyday, running the everlasting race for the Future.
We strongly believe knowledge is the key and as such it must be widely available to anyone because that is the only way for the Humanity to thrive.
As such Advocates we also wish to leave our positive mark in time by providing IT community with the best pieces from our Knowledge Base.
A common question we often get asked is why do you offer knowledge for free? And it’s usually followed up with how do you make money?
So we’re creating this page to answer How is Software Research and Development funded, and Why it matters to you!
Why is Knowledge on Software Research and Development Free?
As a beginner or small business, you often don’t have a large budget to spend on tools and training. However those two things are crucial for success.
We started Software Research and Development as a professional Software Development company officially in 2016. Our goal to to share the knowledge and tactics used in real projects 100% free.
Our goal is to help small businesses compete with the big guys.
Simply put, we created Software Research and Development to offer users what we wish we had when we first started out.
How Is Software Research and Development Funded?
We have always believed in being honest and transparent with our audience. In our opinion, that’s the only way to build a community.
Running a popular website like Software Research and Development that helps thousands of users every month requires significant investment. Both on the server infrastructure part as well as on the content creation part.
Our team creates and maintains thousands of free written Technical Software Development Magento ECommerce and Other tutorials and hundreds of free videos tutorials.
Below are three primary sources that fund Software Research and Development.
As a Software Development company we offer Software Development services. We specialize in ECommerce and our solutions are driven by Magento platform.
If you hire us to perform one of our wide variety of services we get funded.
When you purchase one of our Software Products or Digital Content, it helps us fund Software Research and Development.
We earn referral fees when you buy services from companies that we recommend.
We only recommend products that we believe will add value to our readers. We thorougly test and use all products that we recommend. All opinions are our own, and we do not accept payments for positive reviews.
This monetization method is called affiliate marketing. The biggest brands on the internet offer affiliate programs such as Udemy, Digital Ocean, Amazon, eBay, Google, etc. Many of your favorite sites use affiliate marketing to pay the bills.
The only difference is that not everyone tell their users how they make money.
Sometimes you will see banner ads like these:
Other times, you will see a special link unique to each website that track referrals such as:
When you click on any of these links, you are tagged with a special cookie to track the referral. If you end up buying the product, then they pay us a referral fee.
The referral fees vary for each product. For a Hosting Package you may buy at Digital Ocean, in total value of $25, we might earn $25. For a Udemy course you buy through our referal link, we might earn 20% of what you bought.
Question #1 – Will it Cost Me More Money?
No, absolutely not. In most cases, our deals will actually save you money.
Because Software Research and Development is an authority website, a lot of vendors offer our readers exclusive discounts.
For example, if you open a Digital Ocean account thrugh our referal link you will be rewarded with $10 credit. That amount is equal for two months of for basic droplet, and after those two months, if you decide to continue using their service and make a $25 purchase then, we will be rewarder with $25 credit on our Digital Ocean hosting account.
Question #2 – Do You See My Personal Details?
Nope. We don’t see any personal information i.e name, email, address, credit card, etc.
The only thing we see is that an anonymous user made a purchase on date/time and which product they bought.
