2/3 How social media agencies can protect themselves from influencer and brand liability
3/3 How influences can protect themselves from agency and brand liability
How are You Really Doing Business on Social Media and Digital?
Have you taken legal steps to maximize profits and minimize tax liability? Are you using sound and well established business and legal approaches to protect your personal assets from your business liabilities?
Our firm was established in 1986 and it’s first website went live in 1996. We’re extremely involved in the online social media communities and are “all in” when it comes to using digital, social, and livestreaming to help others, build our global brand, and make a positive difference in the digital world.
When it comes to doing business online, one of the biggest problems we see, over and over, are good people with great business ideas making very bad legal and business decisions. We are contacted all the time by people being defrauded or having their business stolen right from under them because they failed to take the necessary legal steps to protect themselves. We’re hit with incoming questions via email, Twitter DM, Facebook Messenger, and the phone, when online business owners who don’t properly document their transaction or, who fail to protect their personal assets from business liabilities, have no where else to turn when a claim or lawsuit is brought against them.
While it’s true that some very smart online business owners have planned ahead and have taken steps to protect themselves and their businesses, the fact of the matter is that most have not.
Today, our award winning senior partner, Mitch Jackson, and his social media legal services department, enjoy putting decades of legal expertise to work to help social media and digital business owners, entrepreneurs, agencies, and influencers make smart decisions. We believe the recommendations and awards we’ve received from our efforts, and shared by top legal and marketing, social media, technology experts, and influencers, reflect exactly how we can, and will, help you!
