My main goal here at DebtAnatomy is to share what I learn about finances and loan repayment as I go through medical school and residency. My hope is that this site is a useful resource to all my readers who are going through a similar journey.
Another goal with this site is to see if I can make money in the process. In true DebtAnatomy fashion I am trying to minimize my debt load by increasing my disposable income. I am currently monetizing this site in two ways:
1. Google Adsense – These are the typical banners and side bar ads you will see throughout the site (like the advertising bar at the top of this page). I have very little control over what these ads display, because they are targeted to the content that you have recently browsed.
2. Amazon Affiliate Marketing Program – This is something I just recently stumbled upon and I think it has good value. This program allows me to link specific products from my site to amazon. If a reader purchases the item then I get a small commission. My commitment to my readers is that I will only recommend products that I have reviewed and personally approve of. For example, one of my pages displays an ad for the white coat investor book, like this:
If you would like to view the breakdown of commission for amazon products, you can access it online at the amazon affiliate marketing page.
If I ever make enough money worth reporting then I will publish earning reports to keep my readers updated.
