Affiliate Tax Update: In steps Uncle Sam?

Author : Tom Rathbone

As the affiliate marketing industry continues to fight affiliate taxation legislation at the state level on multiple fronts, we’ve just learned that the federal government might soon play a trump card of its own.

Congress is expected to introduce a bill this week that would force e-tailers to start collecting sales taxes on behalf of states from people who shop online or through mail order.

Our industry has for weeks been fighting affiliate taxation legislation in the state of California, but a federal bill would supercede that bill and others being drafted in several states.

The bill, which is being drafted by the National Conference of State Legislatures, is citing a recent study that says by the end of 2008 state sales tax collections had fallen to their lowest levels in 50 years.

The federal bill will likely be introduced this week by Sen. Mike Enzi, R-WYO, and Rep. Bill Delahunt, D-MA.

Stay up-to-date on the fight to defeat affiliate taxation legislation.

Online Advertising thriving in economic downturn

Author : Tom Rathbone

Marketers are spending more on Internet ads than on other media, and online advertising will grow 10 percent in 2009, according to projections just released from eMarketer.

U.S. online advertising revenues for 2008 were $23.4 billion, up 10.6 percent compared to 2007. Search was the leading category, increasing almost 20 percent over 2007.

This upward trend began before the recession, eMarketer notes, but industry experts expect online advertising to grow even more intensely in the economic downturn.

There are several reasons why online advertising is in growth mode even now. First, online advertising is immediate. Unlike all other forms of media (TV, radio and print), online ads are easily measurable in real-time. This means online ads can also be adjusted in real-time to address any issues uncovered by the analytics coming over in real-time.

Finally, online ads make buying easy. Customers get the information, the value and the ability to buy all in one location. Traditional media can’t touch the immediacy of online advertising.
