If you are a blogger or an online marketer, you probably have conducted a contest or giveaway as a way to increase engagement with your audience. Maybe you’re new to blogging or social media and want to start a business. On this week’s episode of Inspiring Connections, we talk Internet and social media law and the implications of the Federal Trade Commission’s legal requirements you need to follow when reviewing a product for a brand. We also talk about what brand ambassadors need to know to disclose how they are being compensated by the brands they work with on their social platforms.
We are pleased to have Sara Hawkins with us to discuss how the law affects entrepreneurs in the Internet marketing and social media fields. Although Sara is a lawyer, all discussions on this episode of the Inspiring Connections podcast should not be interpreted as a legal advice. You should only consult your own attorney for any legal advice. The information we shared here is for conversation purposes only.
Sara’s expertise is working with small to medium-sized businesses and entrepreneurs. She was one of very few attorneys back in the mid 1990s who fully embraced the Internet and how it was changing the way businesses worked.Subscribe in iTunes
