Tips for a Successful & Legal Influencer Marketing Campaign

On September 25, 2017, I gave a presentation at Influencer Marketing Days in NY on how to avoid unnecessary legal risks when using Influencer Marketing.

Media consumption is moving from traditional outlets to other platforms. Explosive growth for social media and declining TV viewership means that advertising dollars are migrating with the eyeballs.

Due to popularity and reach of platforms like Instagram, Snapchat, YouTube and even a resurgent Twitter, brands are partnering with “influencers” to help the grow through views, impressions and “likes.” Online advertising is an active legal enforcement area and influencer marketing presents potential legal issues.

Since most lawsuits focus on consumer awareness (or lack thereof), legal compliance requires appropriate and adequate disclosures. The presentation focused on when disclosures are required and what constitutes adequate disclosure.
