What is a TikTok Influencer Contract?

A TikTok influencer contract is a legal document between a company seeking to work with an influencer and a brand. All the terms and conditions needed by each party during the duration of their professional partnership must be included in an influencer agreement.

A lawyer for TikTok influencer contract can help an influencer with a type of service contract that governs the connection between a corporation, an "Advertiser," and a person, an "Influencer," who is hired to promote a company's brand on social media (i.e., TikTok). The influencer is a person of recognized status in social networks who will carry out acts outlined in the contract in exchange for monetary or in-kind compensation. This arrangement can be used for a one-time campaign in which the Advertiser engages the influencer to assist with a single campaign for a certain length of time or for an ongoing partnership in which the influencer promotes the Advertiser's products or services over time.

What Is TikTok?

TikTok is a popular social networking software that allows users to make, view, and share 15-second movies recorded using mobile devices or webcams. The app is renowned for its high levels of engagement and addictive qualities because of its customized feeds of amusing short clips combined with music and sound effects. Amateur and professional video creators may add filters, background music, and stickers. They can collaborate on content and construct split-screen duet films even if they are in different locations. Keep a few clauses in mind when signing into a TikTok influencer agreement.

Top Considerations For Hiring an Influencer

  • Exercise Due Diligence

    To ensure that their basic beliefs and target audiences are in line, brands should do their homework before working with influencers. It will guarantee that companies receive the value they anticipate from the interaction and that customers view the connection as genuine and reliable. Consumers are rather sophisticated these days, Rebecca observes, and they like influencers and businesses to be real in the advertisements they offer and the partnerships they develop.

    For instance, "it just won't work" if you ask someone to cooperate in a way that promotes a green, healthy lifestyle when they have previously done things like numerous pizza commercials or fast food marketing. You might save a lot of money by having a lawyer review your business contracts and go over their specifics with you before you sign. Lawyers with experience in litigation can spot possible hazards and assist you in negotiating with them or avoiding them.

  • Specific Contractual Deliverables

    Advertisers and consumers are becoming increasingly concerned about the Australian Association of National Advertisers Code of Ethics, which includes the requirement to sufficiently disclose instances where an influencer's content has been posted in exchange for payment of money or free goods or services. Given this, it is essential to include clear contractual deliverables, such as stipulations for appropriate hashtags and general advice on influencers' obligations and liabilities under the Code and the prohibition against misleading and deceptive conduct under the Australian Consumer Law.

    When dealing with influencers, Rebecca advises firms to "go the additional mile and know what a deceptive claim is...they can't just go around saying this product is the most fantastic thing because of X, Y, and Z, and it's not true".

  • Think about Using an Agency to Find Influencers

    Utilizing an agency rather than finding influencers on your own is one method to help manage risks. Some influencers may need extensive support throughout the contractual procedure because they lack essential legal knowledge. Agents, on the other hand, provide a quicker and more effective onboarding procedure. Although agencies normally charge a fee for these services, Rebecca thinks that given the expertise and effectiveness that agents can provide, such fees are reasonable. A lawyer can swiftly comprehend the benefits and drawbacks of various contracts and their provisions.

    An attorney can negotiate better conditions and safeguard you from future issues if an agreement is overly one-sided. If these payments can spare both parties the time, money, and reputational hazards connected with unintentional violations of the Code or the Australian Consumer Law, they will likely have been well-spent. To ensure that the influencer is informed of the arrangement's ramifications, Rebecca also suggests including an incentive letter with the agency agreement.

  • Keeping in Mind Social Media's Worldwide Reach

    Brands need to be aware that internet posts can reach audiences worldwide. As a consequence, businesses must check that they are adhering to the applicable regulatory standards in Australia and consider the regulations in other nations, which might differ (sometimes noticeably) depending on the jurisdiction. The influencer should be made aware of their responsibilities and liabilities in accordance. It may also need local legal counsel due to the various norms and regulations in various jurisdictions.

  • Consider the Ownership of the Intellectual Property in the TikTok Influencer Contract

    Influencers may provide a variety of useful material as part of their brand agreements. Notably, the widely held belief in the sector is that influencers have control over the material they produce. Under copyright law, the "author" or creator of a piece of work, such as a video or image, is the owner of that work. But if a company wishes to get an assignment of any content made for a campaign, this may be incorporated into the agreement from the start, which would be worth considering if the brand wants to be sure it can use the content in another form in the future.

  • Maintain Reliable Approval Processes

    When working with influencers, brands shouldn't "throw all of their experience working in traditional campaigns and knowledge out the window," according to Rebecca. She also points out that by including full review and approval mechanisms in the contractual agreement, brands can still maintain control over influencer marketing content. It guarantees that companies may examine suggested material before publishing to ensure it adheres to their values and realizes the campaign's objective.

  • Contracts for More Secure Business Transactions

    Poorly written contracts are a recipe for expensive legal problems. You give a lawyer the power to prevent problems by assigning them contract-related obligations. They will specify and explain your duties in detail to help you stay clear of potential disputes. A lawyer also ensures that provisions are added to allow conflicts to be settled in the least invasive way feasible. Although business ties are important, the agreements hold commercial deals together.

    Its activities are impacted by contractual business agreements with its staff, business partners, suppliers, customers, and commercial landlords. Contracts assist the parties in thinking through the connection and the risks and duties involved, in addition to enforcing promises. You will gain from having skilled business attorneys assist you in the drafting, reviewing, negotiating, and execution of these legal papers because there is so much at risk. It outlines the several impacts of having a lawyer analyze your TikTok influencer contracts before you sign.
