Can Spam Laws: Affiliate Marketer’s Guide
Affiliate marketing online is the greatest ‘job’ in the world. What other job can you do from the comfort of your own home (or anywhere in the world with an internet connection for that matter) that gives you literally no ceiling on the amount of income you can earn?
The most lucrative element of any affiliate marketer’s income streams comes from email marketing. Email marketing allows you to build your own private list of fans, readers, and buyers.
While it’s imperative to your success to use email marketing it’s equally important that you use it legally to avoid getting yourself in trouble. The CAN-SPAM Act of 2003 was passed by the United States government and established the first national standards for the sending of commercial emails. It’s enforced by the FTC (Federal Trade Commission) and protects all of us from getting endless amounts of annoying SPAM that clutters our mailboxes.
