This is a reminder that any time you share an affiliate link, it’s important to tell that to your audience. They will trust you more if you are clear and transparent about where they are being directed and why. To meet the Affiliate Program’s requirements, you must (1) include a legally compliant disclosure with your links and (2) identify yourself on your website, social media, blog as an Mavigadget Affiliate with a clear language.
You have to comply with Federal Trade Commission (FTC) regulations, your link-level disclosure must include 2 important things;
1. It should be clear. A clear disclosure could be as simple as
“#CommissionsEarned”, “#ad” “#sponsored” “#affiliate” or “(paid link)”.
2. It should be visible. It should be near any affiliate link in a place that customers will notice easily. They shouldn’t have to search or look for it.
In addition, the Affiliate Agreement requires that the following statement clearly and conspicuously appears on your Site: “As an Mavigadget Associate I earn from qualifying purchases.” For social media content, this statement must be associated with your affiliate account.
