Getting Your Biz in Order: Tax and Legal Considerations for Influencers

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

From creating dynamic content to taking amazing photos, influencers are already balancing a million plates at once. But before you post one more picture on Instagram, make sure you’ve laid the proper foundation to support your business. Often in the hustle and bustle, things like establishing businesses, protecting copyrights, and making smart tax decisions fall by the wayside. However, these are the exact issues that influencers, who are looking to transition from hobby to business, are starting to pay attention to. How to disclose a sponsorship? What expenses can be written off on our taxes? This workshop will discuss legal and tax aspects of great importance to bloggers: from write offs to FTC compliance to brand protection, so you can focus on what you do best.

What you can expect to learn:
  • What should you be doing today to protect your blog -- and yourself?
  • How and when should you incorporate, if at all?
  • What blogging income and compensation can you expense?
  • How do you ensure FTC compliance?
