T5A Full Disclosures

This page serves two purposes, one is to let you know how we earn money here at Top Five Advisor and the second is to tell you more about our cause to raise money that will benefit children in the United States.

FTC Disclosure

Top Five Advisor, owned by Buehlerfam Creations, Inc., earns money through referral links to products and services that it recommends. Any time you land on one of our reviews or “best of” charts, please assume that these pages will earn us a referral feeĀ if you follow our links and make the purchase.

To ensure compliance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR Part 255 “Guides Concerning Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising” law, we are disclosing the fact that we do earn money from this website from the various reviews, rankings and endorsement pages.

Any URL you see that starts with http://www.t5a.com/review/ is likely a referral link. For more information, please see the “How We Make Money” section below. The earnings from these links are a major part of our children charity donations.

How We Make Money

Top Five Advisor is a for-profit website owned by Buehlerfam Creations, Inc. The money earned is used to pay expert reviewers, content writers, graphic designers, CSS coders, WordPress theme designers, WP programmers and most importantly, in marketing efforts to drive traffic volume to the site.

  1. Affiliate Links.
    This site currently uses affiliate referral links for its primary source of income. Any time you see a link with the path http://www.t5a.com/review/ in it, please assume the link is a referral link that will earn the site money. Honestly, not every /review/ link actually earns us money but we ask you to assume it does. These links also account for a significant portion of children charity contributions.
  2. WordPress and Website Services.
    We offer various WordPress and website services such as blog transfers, WordPress setup, WordPress evaluations and consulting services here that all earn income.
  3. Advertising.
    Since our relaunch, we’ve drastically scaled back most advertising to provide a better viewing experience for readers. Unlike most sites, you won’t see our site self-scrolling to fit huge ads, you won’t see flashy animations and you won’t see auto-playing video. We use the Internet too and won’t contribute to the stuff that annoys us when reading content elsewhere. That being said, although minimal, we still earn money through the use of advertising.

Referrals We Believe In

Since our relaunch, we’ve drastically changed who show as #1 in our various categories.

All “best of” showcases and reviews now fully reflect who we would use and order services from.

We turn down a lot of pitches from companies for paid placements offering gobs of money. Sorry guys, we’re not for sale.

Top Five Advisor’s mission is to:

  1. Help the customer find the service they are looking for as quickly as possible.
  2. Introduce the customer most of the top products in the niche they found us.
  3. Help the customer get the most out of their products and services by enhancing their experience.
  4. Help the customer maximize the full profit potential of the products and/or services they purchase.
  5. Help make a difference by donating a minimum of 10% of referral commissions to US charities that help children in need.

We’re very serious about helping users, new and expert alike. We like to do the research to save our visitors time and money.

P.S. We can’t believe you read this far. Thank you so much for your support and interest in Top Five Advisor.
