Terms of Use

If you are reading, commenting, sharing my content, or interacting with this site in any way, you agree to these terms.



The contents of The Virtual Marketing Officer Blog are mostly opinion and/OR for educational use only. These posts may not always reflect the advice I would give to my paying clients. How-to advice may not always be accurate because, sites and services change. You use this information at your own discretion.


I try my best to always give credit to original sources, thoughts, quotes, or facts when possible. Occasionally I fail. If you find something in error, please contact the VirtualMarketingOfficer blog using my contact form, here. I will do my best to correct it.

My work is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License. If you want to use a portion of my content, please include attribution and a link to where the content was originally posted on this site.

Do not SCRAPE (steal) this content. This site is protected by the DMCA. You will be caught and then all sorts of bad things might happen to you.


This blog often features images. Other than screen grabs that I created to illustrate how to do something, or to illustrate a site or service that is public on the web, MOST IF NOT ALL IMAGES ARE LICENSED FROM ISTOCKPHOTOS.COM. I paid for the right to use them in this forum and warn that I am not responsible in way for anyone who has lifted these images for their own use. Please do not use these images if you do not want to get in trouble with the copyright holder. Occasionally I will include a non-attributed image from the web that is related to a product, which I have downloaded from a retailer’s website or such. If the owner of that product photo would like attribution, please contact this blog.


I welcome comments. All comments are moderated and appear at the discretion of the Virtual Marketing Officer blog.

Do not add more than one link to a comment, if you want to converse on this blog. It will be considered spam and is automatically deleted. I abide by whitehat rules of search optimization and have a link checker in place if you try to spam my links.

I apologize in advance for any legitimate comments that do not appear because of my spam filter.


DO NOT submit, via my contact form, any sales pitches. I don’t buy email lists. I don’t do back links. I do not write guests posts for blogs when I do not know the blogger or organization. If your blog is relevant to my content and you’d like to reach out to me, please use the contact form.

I do NOT accept offers from others to guest post on the VMO unless I am familiar with you, your organization or your blog. If I know you or your organization and you want me to guest post, please contact me via my business email or Twitter.

Do not send personal notes via my contact form asking to meet up. I do not respond and I will think you are a creep.

If you have a legitimate business reason to contact me, I will respond as soon as possible.

Thank you for visiting, using this forum for education and conversation, AND for reading through these terms and conditions.
