One of the ways the channel remains self-sufficient is through affiliations. I like to make my partnerships open to the community, so everything done on my end is fully transparent. I form an affiliation with VPN companies who score at least 4 stars in my standard VPN review, and I only open up partnership discussions after uploading the review on my channel. All other partnerships listed were chosen because of their relevance to the channel’s goals. I will never recommend a service I wouldn’t use myself, and I will continually re-examine my partnerships to ensure everything is still safe to recommend to my audience.
