A sincere thank you to our contributors, advertisers and readers
Happy fourth anniversary to Social Selling News! I am thrilled to present you with our special Anniversary Edition. We have more news, contributed content and rankings than ever before in this expanded edition, and I would like to thank all of the channel executives and suppliers who contributed their expertise and insights to bring this together.
I would also like to convey my deepest thanks to our incredible advertisers. It goes without saying that this endeavor would be impossible without your support. Collaborating with you to achieve our respective goals, getting to know your teams and meeting many of you in person over the past year has been one of the highlights of my time here as publisher. As H.E. Luccock said, “No one can whistle a symphony. It takes a whole orchestra to play it.”
One of my favorite parts of each edition is the contributed content we receive from the professionals throughout the channel. The information, advice, and experience they share with our readers in features such as Social Tech Update and Risk Roundup is utterly irreplaceable. I consider you a part of our team, and I extend my sincere thanks to each of these contributors for your insights.
Speaking of teamwork, I am incredibly fortunate and grateful to work with a top-notch staff here at SSN. Their attention to detail and creativity is on display in each page of this publication. From editing to layout to advertising, the final product sent to press each month is a testament to their professionalism and talent.
On the news front, the regulators and representatives in D.C. continue to stay busy, having promoted new legislation and rules over the past few months that could significantly impact direct sellers and their business models. With the FTC finally filling its vacant seat this month, the Commission is now back to a 3-2 progressive majority to push through Chairwoman Lina Khan’s agenda targeting Big Tech, Big Pharma, antitrust matters and companies that offer business opportunities.
SSN will keep a close eye on the developments surrounding the FTC’s ongoing proposal for a new earnings claims rule, as well as the Commerce Committee’s new legislation on Capitol Hill, so please visit socialsellingnews.com for the latest breaking updates on these subjects.
Finally, I would like to thank each of you, our readers. We strive to provide you with the most relevant and actionable news and direct selling insights so that you can run your businesses with the critical information that you need. Therefore, your input and opinions on the topics we write about are the most valuable part of our content. I hope that the coming months will give me the opportunity to hear your thoughts on the subjects that matter most to you as direct selling executives.
Thank you again for your support and for reading SSN!
