I received a request for a custom offer for a testimonial (btw, I include the FTC disclosure in every testimonial). However, praise for a certain “recently sworn in world leader” was woven into the script and was unnecessary. This Buyer’s views were in direct opposition to mine and it put me in a compromising situation.
I diplomatically asked him for a new script citing this reason…Due to the violent nature of today’s political climate, I’ve made a point of not attaching my image and voice to anything political, even if it reflects my own personal views. It was the first time in my 30 year career that I had to take a professional stance on politics.
Here’s a little back story for you to consider — a few months prior to the election there was a fake news story circulating the internet about Clinton’s health and the “doctor” in the attached video was an actor I recognized from Fiverr. No FTC disclosure attached. It’s unknown if the actor was politically motivated, but what is known is that his morals were askew.
How far would you compromise your political beliefs for an order?
