ForensicsColleges.com is owned and operated by Sechel Ventures Partners, LLC, a small business founded in 2013 by Barry Franklin and Seth Restaino. From inception, and by design, the company has always operated remotely, but we are based in Half Moon Bay, CA.
Ten years in, the founders still own the business, and are still actively involved in its day-to-day operations. They were joined nine years ago by the now chief content officer, Jocelyn Blore, who rounds out the management team.
This website is focused on higher education, and relies on advertising to make money. Our form of advertising is often referred to as “performance marketing”—“performance” being the key term because unless someone who visits performs a specific action, we do not make a cent.
The actions that may make us money include:
On rare occasions, we may be compensated for a school to simply appear on a site or sites, but this does not represent a material portion of revenue. In such cases, those placements will be labeled as “sponsored” or “ad” as well.
If a school link on this site does not have the word “sponsored” or “ad” or some combination of the two in proximity, then it is a natural link—not an advertising link—and we will not be compensated.
Please contact us if you ever have any doubt about whether a link is sponsored.
Our commitment to you is to run our business the right way. We keep our websites streamlined, we show you ads that make sense in context, and we let you drive from there. Please see below for more on our guiding principles.
