What is this site?
Favt is a product discovery platform – the site is all about helping you discover products quickly. Our content is mostly in the listacle format (list + article). The beauty of the listicle format is the content is concise, scannable, and fun.
One big difference between this site and other blogs is I believe in data privacy. Your data shouldn’t be monetized and sold by huge tech companies who are taking your tastes and preferences and selling them to advertisers (including companies like Cambridge Analytica).
Does this site make money?
This site’s only main source of revenue is through affiliate links. When you purchase an item through one of the links we get a commission, like from Walmart.
Anytime you see a “buy on…” button, you can assume its an affiliate link.
I choose affiliate links over advertisements because they do not disrupt the customer experience. Advertisement platforms, like AdWords, make pages load slower, track user info, and disrupts the customer experience.
What technologies do we use?
Our stack is simple. I want to keep it that way. Here is a list of the current technology.
- Hosting – Lightsail by Amazon
- CDN – Jetpack by Automattic
- Analytics – Jetpack by Automattic
- Contact form – Formspree
