Affiliate marketing has just been demoted so to speak or has got the wrong end of the regulators stick. New laws and regulations ( or comply with FTC guidelines) have just been put into place to make it more difficult for less honest affiliate marketers to “make money” by false claims and videos.

Many affiliate marketers who have flourished  and earned $$$$$$ making videos with dodgy claims  will be no more be able to do this. As with every unfortunate new regulation many honest affiliate marketers will also get hurt  and earnings affected 

A few things that are not Allowed with Some Online affilaite marketing agencies :

Vendors must submit a script prior to shooting the video. Videos will not be accepted without a script pre-review.

  • Videos that portray or reference a fictionalized individual or life story, where a vendor makes false claims as part of the product pitch.
  • Videos that portray or reference the vendor him or herself, where the vendor makes false claims about his earnings and experience as part of the product pitch.
  • Videos which will not allow you to exit or pause. Expert endorsements without substantiation (for example, an endorsement from a doctor must have proof that the doctor has performed tests or evaluations performed by an actual doctor that has mastered the subject matter being described in the pitch).
