*Updated 2/4/2010 to display current states and bills regarding advertising tax. If you are already displaying the badge using one of the image urls listed below, you will be displaying the most recent update.
I have been inspired by the way so many people are coming forward, unifying their efforts to oppose the several state bills being considered of late. I sit at my desk working in this industry daily and spend very little time talking with others. Rather, I am helping a client with some coding or working up another round of creatives. What can I do to help?
I am incredibly proud of Karen working so hard to arrange all of the meetings with California legislators and speaking so passionately to them a few weeks ago. Those who went to speak at those meetings represented us all to demonstrate our convictions and commitment. Thank you to them all and those in other states who are doing the same! Now, a few weeks later we hear that some things may be changing in our favor for several states. But it is still not time to rest. There are other bills yet to be defeated and new ones that will likely appear.
Sitting at my desk, designing the day away, I put together the image you see here to be shared among our industry. It demonstrates our position against the advertising tax legislation which unfairly damages our industry.
I hope to see it appear throughout the web as a visual demonstration to legislators and everyone involved that our voice is not small and bad bills such as these will have more negative impact than they have anticipated.
How do I get this site badge on my website?
This site badge is now available for use by everyone wishing to display it on their website, blog, Facebook profile, and anywhere else it can be seen. Simply copy one of the snippets of code displayed below to both display the site badge and link it to additional information on the current state of Advertising Tax legislation around the country.
Feel free to link the badge to any content related to the Advertising Tax issue: Performance Marketing Alliance, AffiliateVoice, Fight Against the #AdvertisingTax, or your favorite relevant blog on the topic. The point is to demonstrate that we are unified and many!
As the fight continues, the badge image will be updated so that everyone will continue displaying the same thing with bills being added or updated.
