Today’s post is going to be a short but important one. The FTC’s 16 CFR § 255.5 (you can read it, here) states that affiliates are required to disclose their relationship whenever a product or service is being promoted. By doing so it keeps within the guidelines so that individuals may understand your angle and make an informed opinion about the endorsement. Essentially: You need to let people know that you are affiliating with the product. Failing to provide this disclosure can land you in legal troubles. I found a great article over on Bloggylaw.com that places a few guidelines … Continue reading

Subreddits: The how, what, and why

Subreddits, the custom-made forums by users, are the main staple of Reddit. Browsing through the front page and you can see the more popular ones such as /r/gaming, /r/worldnews, /r/gadgets, and more, but Reddit isn’t just about the main subreddits; the real draw comes from the fact that you can find a subreddit on just about any topic or interest you could imagine. What some users have done is create subreddits for their businesses and so I thought it would be a good time to talk about the how, what, and why you should do the same.

Is the Fear of Missing Out preventing you from obtaining Success?

The fear of missing out (FOMO) is that feeling you get when you see others doing interesting activities and the sinking dread that what you’re doing isn’t as fun and that you are missing out on the activity. Pretty straight forward, right? It’s that type of feeling you get when you’re sitting at home on a Friday night and all you see is your Facebook feed with tons of pictures of your friends attending parties, going off on adventures, and having a blast – you feel left out. This happens in business, too. Feeling like you’re not on the cutting … Continue reading

How to Find Broken Links on Your Website (the Easy Way)

Broken links are like vampires in the sense they suck away your potential to keep visitors engaged (and your business having the chance to convert on an offer). Over time, websites become quite massive so when you begin playing around with the pages it becomes very easy to break quite a few links. Normally what would happen is you receive an email (hopefully) from someone having trouble accessing a page or you stumble across them through your analytics. But what if you have a huge site? One that may happen to have a plethora of broken links. Well… there are … Continue reading
