Social Media Marketing For Your Info Products

“As with all truth in advertising laws, the consumer must know he or she is being sold to before reading something or taking action to purchase. And keep in mind that the advertising or marketing message may require more than one disclosure…

All disclosures should be:

Proximate to the information so the consumer does not have to hunt for it

Of at least the same size as the message

In the same format as the message

Accessible on all platforms used

Understandable by the consumer”
