Who We Are
How We Fund The Site
From the beginnings of a hobby blog, TheRetiredBroker has grown into something of a full time job. It didn’t start out that way but we are delighted it has! With it has come the inevitability of expenses required to keep it going. We knew that we had to find a way of making the site pay, but were adamant that we did not want to plaster it with loads of adverts or jump into bed with anybody who wanted to pay us for recommending them.
After a lot of thought we have gone down two routes. On the one hand we have used a few affiliate links on the site. These are links that you can click on and you will be taken to their site where you may then wish (or not wish!) to buy something from them. We may or may not get a small payment from them if you do and are happy to answer any questions about these affiliate links that you may have.
The second thing we have done is a little more personal and, we think, intended to be a whole lot more helpful. We call it a Bespoke Introductory Service. It is a simple idea whereby if you have a specific need, say a non – standard mortgage due to self employed issues, you can just write your question down in your own way using this form and we will pass it on to someone we think may be able to help you. It costs you nothing to ask, and if whoever we pass your enquiry on to is successful in helping you, we will get a small fee for introducing you to them.
