Is legaly to use another identity in your campaigns?

9 replies
Hi warriors,i'm on the start and i have a question.
I know more internet marketers that use another names and another adresses(they present with another name and use identitiy of another person) in their businesses and in their emails.And when launch a new product they use another name on the product page and on emails that they send to the list.
This thing is legally?For me sounds ilegaly and unsure for a business.Or they buy legally this identities and use?

    I think it is legal as long as it can be traced to the real person behind persona.

    Writer been using aliases for very long time.

    From the known marketers "David DeAngelo" comes to the mind whos real name is Eben Pagan.

    They probably would not risk doing something illegal and risking their business.

      You just invent one and create persona and character around it.

      Don't use other people real names or identities, because this likely is very illegal.

          The address your business is registered to.

    It is perfectly Legal.

    But there are some Camps who believe it to be unethical.

    I do not include myself in that Camp as it is a very accepted way of conducting business for many years now.

    And I would also HIGHLY suggest you use a different address than your physical address on things like Auto responder emails.

    Unless you want the potential for someone to show up at your doorstep. ( Although it may be rare, for me the small chance of it happening is too big a risk)
