If you’re wondering how No Home Just Roam makes money, this is the page for you!
How We Do Make Money
We have some Google AdSense and Amazon CPM Ads served on this site. If you’re reading on a computer or tablet, you can probably see it to the right. If you’re reading on your phone, you’ll probably see it above this paragraph.
As a rough guesstimate, we probably earn $0.002 for every page you view on here because of those ads. If you click on one of those ads, we’ll earn a bit more than that, although there’s no way of knowing how much that amount would be as it’ll depend on whose ad you clicked on.
Anytime there’s a link to an item on Amazon on this site, it’ll be an affiliate link. That link right there is an affiliate link – Amazon knows we referred you because of the ‘nohomejustroam-20’ part in the URL. If you click on a link like that and buy anything on their site, Amazon will pay us a commission which’ll be a percentage of whatever you bought – the percentage varies depending on what you buy.
Don’t worry – although Amazon lets us know what’s been bought via our links, we have no clue who bought it, because it’d be creepy if Amazon told us that. So your identity as the purchaser of the Backstreet Boys greatest hits album is safe with them.
3) Referral Links
We sometimes include referral links for products or services that earn us a small referral fee or commission. We only ever recommend products or services that we use ourselves and will always disclose whenever we use a referral link. For an example, check out the ‘Earn Cashback’ section on our Support Us page.
How We Don’t Make Money
This is where we’re different to a lot of other travel and travel-hacking blogs as we’ve chosen not to get compensation in some of the most lucrative ways.
1) Credit Cards
First off, we don’t have any credit card affiliate links. If a site that’s a credit card affiliate promotes a card and one of their readers applies for it through their link, the owner of the site will get paid a large commission – sometimes in the hundreds of dollars. Here’s why we don’t want to do this.
A lot of blogs write what’s known as sponsored posts. Sometimes they’re sent freebies by a company and they write a review about it. Other times the company will simply pay them x amount of money to write about them and their product or service.
In the travel blog world, a common type of freebie is the freebie trip. This is where a hotel / tourist board / airline, etc. will give the blogger a free trip in return for them writing about it. Again, we’ll be writing a more detailed post about why we won’t be doing this.
But rest assured that any product reviews or trips we take have been paid for with our own hard-earned cash and hotel points / airline miles. Or maybe given as Christmas gifts to us by loving family members (such as my Instant Pot – thanks Mum & Dad!).
