How We Make Money

In addition to designing kick-ass websites, and managing those sites for our clients, Skout Media publishes content on a number of niche sites on a variety of topics ranging from personal finances to Dungeons & Dragons.

When it comes to writing content, our readers are our highest value. You are why we spend countless hours putting forth the best in education, guides, research, and reviews. Being transparent, in every aspect of our operations is in line with our core principles. If we’re not adding value to your life, we don’t believe we’re doing our job.

How Does Skout Media Make Money from Posts?

It’s much simpler than you might think. We partner with advertisers, companies, product makers, and service providers that share our vision of helping you. These partners may include websites, apps, content creators, and other companies that conduct work in the same sector we’re writing about.

When you read one of our posts, and click on one of our partners’ links, then decide to make a purchase, open an account, or one of many other triggering actions — we may earn a commission from that advertiser, at no extra cost to you. In some instances, you may even get an exclusive promotion that saves you money because our partners love to do business with our readers.

At the end of the day, our main goal is to inform and protect you, not lure you into purchasing products or services that won’t help you solve your problem or you don’t need.

Can I Trust Skout Media Reviews?

Glad you asked. With the internet being what it is, even we browse with an element of skepticism. We understand if you wonder if our reviews and content are biased or intended to influence you to make a purchase so we can earn a commission. Those purchases are one of the ways we make money, after all!

To us, our integrity is more valuable than a quick buck. Not only that, but it’s just bad business to sell you out for fast cash. If we break your trust, you won’t come back or recommend our content to your friends and family. Being honest and maintaining our editorial integrity long term will always mean much more to us than making extra money in the short term.

Plain and simple, we do not allow third-party compensation to affect our due diligence and editorial integrity. If we review a product and genuinely do not find the product to be in the best interest of our readers, you can be sure our review will reflect those findings – even if we are compensated for that review. Advocating for something that would negatively impact our readers goes against our very core. It’s simply not who we are and not how we do business.

How Can I Trust You Are Being Honest?

We believe our work speaks for itself. We spend countless hours researching products, apps, and companies that don’t even know we exist. Many of our reviews, predate our affiliate relationships with these companies. Why? Because we started Skout Media with the intention of putting our readers first, and that will never change.

Who Is Behind Skout Media?

We’re an eclectic, knowledgeable team with a very wide range of interests and passions. Each member is an expert in their field, and we’ve assembled them to do what they love: sharing their passion and expertise with the world. They love skouting ahead (see what we did there?) in their area of passion (whether that’s finance, Dungeons & Dragons, or craft cocktails) and bringing the best information back to you.

We do this all in an attempt to help you and millions of others get the most out of life.

Our Highest Value

From the time we started Skout Media, serving you and the rest of our readers has been, and will remain, our highest value. We value you more than anything else. We work hard to help you pursue all life has to offer and are excited you’ve joined us in the pursuit.
