Open Letter To Jeff Bezos from Danny Sullivan – Affiliates Terminated @affilates @amazon
 

Open Letter To Jeff Bezos from Danny Sullivan

Amazon strikes again! They terminate every California affiliate because CA now requires Amazon to collect sales tax.

I agree with Amazon that states shouldn’t tax these transactions… or any sales from brick and mortar businesses.

If state’s taxed land values, that would be the fairest method (click here and read the paragraph “a really efficient tax system”)

 

Dear Jeff–

Thank you for your letter today, informing me that after seven years of being one of your affiliates — and having earned for you about $150, 000 in that time — that you “deeply regret” unilaterally terminating my contract with Amazon to be an affiliate. I also especially appreciated the part where you reassured me that this action wouldn’t affect my ability to keep buying from your company. Nice touch.

I deeply appreciate that after so many years of supporting your company, and earning my 4.5% cut over those years (as I figured today, looking at my stats), that you’ve decided that I should be a pawn in your fight with my state. That type of loyalty really makes me want to support you in the future, should you restore your program. It also encourages me to want to continue shopping with you

The comments are closed on Danny’s posting… but you can leave comments here.

It seems that we are left as affiliates with CPC/PPC leads, and those companies that are based or do business in California that already pay tax in the state.

But as some have written, you can setup an LLC in another state that doesn’t have these affiliate nexus laws.

I wonder why and how this legislation made it through to the Gov for signing.  I’ve called both my Assemblymember and Senator to get further clarification, according to the records the AB 153 and AB 155 have not been voted on.  This had to have been in the works for some time, I had heard and read about it months ago, but had no idea that it was being passed this quickly, did it get rolled into the budget? Who are the special interests behind this bill? Big box stores?

There are dozens of affiliate networks/programs following suite because of this action from Amazon.

Perhaps Mr. Bezos needs to stand up to California

GooglePlus Invite – How to Get One @googleplus
 

GooglePlus Invite – How to Get One @googleplus

Is it possible to get an invite? Yes they are being handed out slowly and controlled. Almost like in the early days of GMail.

So how do you get one? Are there any workarounds?

Mostly you have to know someone that has an account and has invites available to send. That would be those that work at Google and those who have been invited to the early beta.

The invites are apparently being sold online, include ebay.
Here’s a few auctions where the invites are being sold:

Google+ Ebay Auctions

Google+ Invite Plus Tutorial

As soon as we get one here, we will start to invite or readers/friends.

Google just launched its new service: Google Plus (Google+). Right now it’s invite-only and a lot of you may be wanting an invite or looking for ways to invite your friends. So here you go.

Method 1:
1. Create a post.
2. Now add the visibility for that post by typing in email addresses or by adding circles.
3. Hit share.

Method 2:
1. Create a new circle. Add people to that circle by dropping them in from the ‘find and invite’ option.
2. Add an album.
3. Share that album with all the people in that circle.

People in that circle will receive an invite via album sharing request.
Its been said that Google Plus invites are rate limited by hour. So if they can’t click through that first time, they can try again later with same link. (You don’t need to resend it)

UPDATE 1:
Many of you would be getting an error “We’ve temporarily exceeded our capacity. Please try again soon.”
Don’t worry. You can try again through the same link some time later. It’s probably because of invites rate limited by hour.

UPDATE 2:
Google just announced that they have closed any more invites for the night.

Get your Google+ now on these for as little as $1

California Governor Brown Screws Affiliate Marketers by Passing Nexus Laws
 

California Governor Brown Screws Affiliate Marketers, Small Businesses, Affiliate Networks and others by Passing Nexus Laws.

Governor Brown of California has announced he has secured enough votes to pass his budget, including the Affiliate Nexus Tax and 2 related nexus bills: AB 153, AB 155 and SB 234. The law will go into effect immediately upon signing, and he must sign before July 1st, 2011.

Danger Brown writes about a workaround establishing an LLC out of state, perhaps in a state that doesn’t have tax, like Wyoming.
