I’ll just say it outright: Wild Beauty is slowly becoming monetized. For the past few months, I’ve been looking at ways to step up the game here, and many of those ways involve capital expenditure. So I’ll be experimenting with some ways to make a little money, whether it’s through advertising, affiliate links, or sponsorship.
My first catch is an affiliate relationship with Space NK Apothecary, which I’m very happy about. They sell some of the best beauty brands on the planet, many of them niche brands that those of us in the industry have been privately raving about for years. I’ve got a few other lines in the works as well.
What does this mean for you? Mostly it means that links from reviews and Other People’s Makeup stories will be more “shop-able”, and that I’ll be getting a small commission from anything you buy from affiliated sites.
I’m also working on new story ideas that incorporate products and color. I hope to come up with features that are fun, honest, and in tune with my personal beauty philosophy, which is finding its voice here at Wild Beauty.
Some of this will be experimental – I hope you’ll be patient with me if I go overboard, or if something just doesn’t work. Mostly I hope that you’ll continue to enjoy the site!
