- I’m using this page because I already pay for this space, and the one-link options available for TikTok creators either charge for features I want, or are labeled as dangerous by TikTok.
- I have Google Analytics enabled for my site. This is to provide me with valuable feedback about who is visiting, and to help me separate statistics about traffic to this unlisted page from traffic on the rest of my site.
- I occasionally link to products I have actually purchased, and believe in enough to recommend to others.
- These links are affiliate links, which I label. I do (eventually) receive a small commission from Amazon if you click from them, and again if you buy them.
- You can also independently search for the item without clicking the link.
