I am often asked by direct selling companies if they can reuse the content I publish on my blog. And the answer is always yes. Companies have used this content on their own blogs, in consultant newsletters, and more. All they need to do is ask my permission, and credit me properly.
Since there is sometimes confusion on this issue, here is how to reuse content from this blog in ways that comply with the copyright (you can find the copyright notice at the bottom of the right sidebar.)
- If you would like to reprint an article in its entirety, please be sure to include a link to this blog (http://www.jenfongspeaks.com) as well as the bio I will supply to you when you reach out to me to ask permission. You can request permission by emailing me at blog (at) jenfongspeaks (dot) com.
- If you would like to customize an article for your company, I still require the link and bio. I also want to review the copy before you publish it, to ensure that it still falls within the lines of what I would advise. You can request permission by emailing me at blog (at) jenfongspeaks (dot) com.
- If you would like to paraphrase or just use portions of my content, please identify the portion that you got from this blog, and include a link to the original article on this blog.
- If you are developing a training guide, and you are using my content in any way, I always appreciate a link to my site in the list of sites consultants can check out for additional information. If you are using anything word-for-word, please include my byline and link on that page as the author.
I provide the content on this blog free of charge, but that doesn’t mean it can be reused at will. It is still subject to copyright. If you would like to learn more about reusing content without breaking the law, read this post: Are You Breaking Copyright Law When You Share the Work of Others?
