If you are a blogger working with brands, you need an influencer agreement in place. A contract doesn’t have to be jam-packed with complicated terms. At its core, a contract is simply a written agreement. Here's why you need one!
Please note that I am not a lawyer and this guide to influencer contracts and template should not be interpreted as legal advice. The information included is for educational purposes only. Each situation is unique and any contract may need to be reviewed by an attorney.
As influencer marketing is growing and maturing, more and more brand sponsors are seeking out micro influencers. Today, there are several ways to work with brands. Pitch them directly or apply for campaigns through influencer platforms.
If you're working on a sponsored post or social campaign and your brand contact doesn't provide a contract, send over your own! Contracts are put in place to protect all parties involved. Your blogger agreement doesn't have to be 100 pages long.
A contract simply needs to outline what each party is expected to do and what rights each party has.
This blog contract outlines deliverables, usage rights, cancellation, exclusivity, payment details, scope of work, AND MORE in simple and clear terms.
