Rating Methodologies

At IncomeBuddies, I believe in being transparent because I believe building trust with my readers. That’s why I share things like how we make money and how we rate each of the products/service.

IncomeBuddies’s star rating methodologies meet strict editorial guidelines and take into account dozens of data points that concerns entrepreneurs, investors and the average joes who are looking to grow their income and become better in handing their personal finance.

Data collection and review process

Before I begin my review process, I look closely at the top service/product providers and determine who the market leaders are in the industry. While assessing the various products/services in the sector, I would use the market leaders who are the most reputable in the industry as the based criteria.

Information accuracy and updates

I and my team of seasoned writers and editors will make updates throughout the year as needed to ensure the correctness and reliability of the information presented. I will contact the product or service providers on a periodic basis in order to keep the information current, ensuring that it is always up to date with the most recent information.
