Video Message from the President

Please be careful if you hear about this site. The information in the whois database doesn't look right. It is NOT the address for Network Solutions.

The .com email address doesn't bring up a page. The whois information on that domain is "iffy."

The site also shows a bad certificate. Please do NOT use this site.

I could be wrong but, if it's what I think it is, it's a VERY clever way to get every piece of personal information you have. NO site should be asking you to upload your personal documents!

Better safe than sorry!

Trust Seals? Trust Who?

I received a sales letter email from Scot Standke. It began:

"If you run a squeeze page to build a mailing list, you'll want to devour this post right away."

It ended:

"Now, could YOU use an instant 80.65% increase in your own conversions?"

I went to look at the site because of the following paragraph:

"There is a new service that screens your sites, and if you pass scrutiny, you are allowed to display "Trust Badges" on your site."

Who the Hell IS This, and Where do I Find Him?

New FTC Rules in Advertising

A couple of weeks ago, the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC) came out with new rules on advertising for online business owners. I didn't say too much about it, at the time, although I did give you a couple of links to check it out for yourselves.

There was a reason for that.

Some of these new rules are goofier than I first thought. At least one seems impossible to comply with. They also require that you ALWAYS use an Electronic Signature Script to prove that YOU complied with their demands.

Not being a lawyer, I didn't want to try to interpret them for you and get it wrong. God forbid I ever be wrong.
