Last week I sent an email about the very likely chance the government will begin making online business more difficult.
And I peppered that email with things that I hoped would piss someone off and get me a troll.
But alas. When I checked my email, a troll I did not have.
Instead, I had a slightly sassy response.
Coming online crackdown?
Hasn’t this been happening for 2+ years with the blood bath of Facebook/Google Affiliate marketers and their non compliant “magic weight loss pills” getting butchered?
Indeed. That’s true.
Platforms like Google have been cracking down on SEO and ads for years and years.
And a close reading of that email would show that was indeed the point.
The “coming” part of the online crackdown specifically referred to government interference. Which we saw with the EU’s privacy laws passed a few years ago… and is continuing with laws like AB-5.
The point wasn’t that I’m some soothsayer who is seeing the future when no one else is.
The point is that this has always happened.
And will continue to happen.
And anyone with a modicum of awareness can clearly see it happening and can see how it is very likely to get worse very soon.
