This Influencer Disclosure Policy is valid as of  15 June 2019  

This policy covers the below social channels owned and managed by Zina Kagchelland (HoneyBeads1) :

On my social channels, I strive to abide by the FTC Guidelines for online influencers. Most of my content is free and paid for with my own time and money. To compensate for my effort I use the help of affiliate links, sponsors and online ads. In this way, I can keep making free content while (part of) my cost is covered.

Affiliate links

Affiliate links are links that are provided by companies to increase their traffic. When you click on one of these affiliate links, it will bring you to the website of that company. When you make a purchase on this website or buy a specifically advertised product, I will receive a commission. For example, You clicked the link of www.fictionbeads.com and made a purchase of 100 dollars. Let’s say my commission is 3%, I will then receive 3 dollars from www.fictionbeads.com

This commission is not always in the form of money. This commission may also be something like store credit. With this store credit, I can purchase new beads to make new tutorials.


Sometimes I will be sponsored by beading companies. This is mostly ‘paid out’ in beads. Some companies might ask a favor back like a shout-out, review, unboxing video, project or other.

Other sponsors might be Paypal donators, bead donators, Patrons (members of my Patreon page) or other. Depending on the type of donation I will return a favor, set specific rewards or other.

Online ads

Ads might be posted next to my content. When you click on these ads, I will receive a commission from Google Ads. This commission is mostly a few cents per click, but every bit counts. Please do not ‘spam click’ these ads! I will not receive extra money if you do so and you could get in trouble for cyber criminality.

If I receive beads or other beading products as compensation, it might influence my content, topics or posts made on my social channels. For example, if I receive free beads I might make a free tutorial on Youtube with them.

All of my affiliate content, sponsored content, advertising space or other paid for or sponsored content will be clearly identified as paid or sponsored content in accordance with the FTC Guidelines. (a disclaimer note can be found at each end of a post)

Even though I might receive compensation for these posts or advertisements, I will always give my honest opinion, findings, beliefs, or experiences on those topics or products. The views and opinions expressed by me are purely my own. Any product claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer, provider or party in question.
