    hey guys,

    Kinda stuck on something. Okay so everyone knows you can purchase video testimonials on fiverr. Yeah some don't agree with it but i sold there for a while and made a decent buck. Since then i have launched my own website in the past month for doing my own testimonial services at a higher price. The website turned out pretty good and everything is how i wanted it. I've been marketing for the past week getting some traffic flow but the thought came across my mind to check rules and what not. And knowing that i should have done so before Ive been doing a little research on being FTC compliant with testimonial videos.

    Any advice on my situation? How does fiverr get away with it? Anyone aware of risks with video testimonials?

    I got 2 decisions here. Continue my site and pull them sales in or backout on my 2 months of work and move on the the next project.

    If posting my site below is not within the TOS let me know please lol.

    Thanks.

    What have you decided to do with your site? I'm doing something very similar but I havent thought of being FTC compliant. Learned anything new?

    Due to he increasing popularity of review sites, and pressure from them to clean up the fake reviews, the FTC is filing suits like crazy - at $250,000 per fake review - and it is rumored that they have created an entirely new division and partnered with Testimonial Shield to fight companies/individuals that intentionally sell fake reviews and testimonials. I'm sure fiverr is already under investigation and the fake review offers will be pulled soon. In the mean time, you're taking a lot of risk b/c when the US gov sets out to let people know they are serious about something, heads roll...
