If you’re thinking about teaming up with brands to promote their products/services, here are a few tips to ensure you don’t find yourself in hot water. Disclosures, disclosures, disclosures!

Influence by the Numbers: The Lowdown on Who’s Really Influential Online Details matter – especially when it comes to influencer marketing.

I myself am a small creator, so I completely understand where the frustration and animosity […]
