What are the Affiliate Disclosure Requirements on Social Media?
The FTC is coming down hard when/if full disclosure is not clear and obvious that you earn commission from your tracking link when if a sale transpires. Our policy is: just be upfront!
For websites and blogs, add any of these approved statements:
I get commissions for purchases made through links in this post.
As a DermOne Health and Wellness Affiliate, I earn from qualifying purchases.
For social media follow these guidelines: (please use all lower case for ‘social media’)
On social media (e.g., Twitter, Instagram, Facebook), the FTC allows you to use a hashtag or word/phrase (instead of a full statement) to indicate affiliate links in your posts.
Examples of FTC-compliant disclosure phrasing and hashtags include:
sponsored by ____________
You may have noticed that the word “affiliate” is missing from the list. This is because according to the FTC, the average user may not understand what terms like “affiliate” and “affiliate links” mean. So, tagging your posts #affiliate would not be enough to comply with the FTC’s guidelines.
