When you work in an industry as new as influencer marketing, it can definitely feel like the wild west. Although the FTC is passing down regulations for content, there are still so many questions: How do you find the right brands to work with? How do you properly disclose the influencer/brand relationship? How much do you charge for sponsored work? Luckily, there's Danica Kombol and the Influencer Marketing Association. The IMA is on the scene to drive growth in influencer marketing, advocate on behalf of influencers, marketers and consumers by ensuring ethical standards are met and serve as the go-to resource on best practices, measurement standards and trends. Listen in today on Episode 33 of Mediavine On Air, as Danica joins Mediavine's Senior Director of Marketing Jenny Guy to discuss the state of the influencer industry and how the IMA is here to support our work. Helpful Resources Influencer Marketing AssociationDanica's Website"How To Properly Disclose Sponsored Work" ArticleHashtag Legal https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HyxRWbkBRqo Transcript [THEME MUSIC PLAYING] JENNY GUY: Hello, everybody, welcome. Hard to believe as it is Wednesday, November 20. We are a week and a day away from Thanksgiving, and we are into our final two episodes of Teal Talk in the decade. What the heck? I am Jenny Guy. I am Mediavine's marketing manager, and I am the host of Teal Talk. And I think everybody knows that when we work in the relatively new and ever changing influencer industry that we work in we can struggle to know where to turn when we have questions about things like legalities, pricing ourselves and our work, what are the best practices, and my guest today is an incredible resource for anybody who is involved in the influencer marketing industry. Danica Kombol is the CEO of Everywhere Agency, which she founded in 2009, as well as the founder and CEO of Everywhere Society. Everywhere Agency's purpose is helping brands build better stories through social media. She brings her extensive background as a television producer and public relations executive to her work with influencers and brands. You'll recognize Saturday Night Live, Kids in the Hall, and VH1 among the shows she's worked on. We've heard those names. She's also a blogger herself on her site Danica.me and the founder and CEO of the Influencer Marketing Association, which she founded in 2018 as the official Trade Organization committed to protecting the authenticity and ethics of influencer marketing. We could continue talking about all of her accomplishments and awards for quite some time, but then we'd be out of time to actually talk and answer your questions. So I'll conclude by saying she's a frequent conference speaker in the influencer space, and she resides in Atlanta. Danica, thank you so much for joining us today. DANICA KOMBOL: Yeah, thanks for having me, Jenny. I'm really honored that I get to come in before the end of the year and be part of Mediavine and know what an incredible support you are for influencers and how valued you are to influencers, so comrades in influencer love. JENNY GUY: Absolutely, we love influencers here at Mediavine. And you love influencers, and you've been involved with them for so long, which, actually, is a perfect segue into my first question that I wanted to. But guys, just a reminder, if you have any questions for Danica, please just put them in the comments, and we will get them asked. But let's start out here. Without being offensive, you are definitely an OG in the influencer industry. DANICA KOMBOL: Drop the mic. Love it. JENNY GUY: Yes, and you've been-- so how long have you been involved in working with the influencer industry, and how did you transition? I listed some of those amazing programs that we all recognize that you've worked on as a television producer. So how did you make that transition to here? DANICA KOMBOL: OK, so two questions,

Welcome to DAY 1 of 9 DAYS OF HOLIDAY MAGIC in the month of December! After toying around with a multitude of inclusive yet topical names, I landed on 9 DAYS Of HOLIDAY MAGIC, named after the spirit of the season AND the MLM that was shut down by the FTC in 1974 after being found to be operating as a pyramid scheme. I hope your season is filled with the embodiment of HOLIDAY MAGIC, as we count down to 2022! In August 2021, I heard about an MLM that was gaining popularity on social media called Black Oxygen Organics. A group of AntiMLM Advocates joined together to help create content and awareness across all platforms on a mysterious scam selling literal dirt as the cure to literally everything. The Boo Crew was born. On November 23rd, an email went out to all BOO reps, letting them know that the MLM would be closing it's doors amongst recalls, bad reactions, lawsuits, and a growing social media awareness movement. Obviously we had to hop on a zoom to chat with those who could! A bit of a warning, we have, at times, 5 very excited women on this chat, and mute was not always utilized, but I did my best!

It seems like there's bipartisan compromise for once in Washington, and it's over one commitment: it's time to reel in Big Tech. But Marietje Schaake has been sounding that alarm for years. Once one of the youngest members of the European Parliament, Schaake now helps lead the academic discussion around how to regulate some of the biggest companies in the world, like Facebook and Apple, as a policy fellow at Stanford University. She tells POLITICO's Ryan Heath how she aims to reform Silicon Valley from within, and what it's like when some of her students take jobs at tech giants.  Marietje Schaake is the international policy director at Stanford University's Cyber Policy Center.

Restrictive covenants. Non-competes. Some states allow their enforcement. Some states don't. In an increasingly mobile employment environment and in a time when the "Great Resignation," is sweeping the country, the Federal Government is paying a lot of attention to trying to "promote competitive labor markets and worker mobility."  This effort is in response an Executive Order by President Biden in July, urging the Federal Trade Commission to "curtail the unfair use of non-compete clauses...that may unfairly limit worker mobility."On December 6th and 7th, the FTC and the DOJ will host a virtual workshop to inform the rulemaking process.  This episode tees up the issue looking at restrictive covenants from all sides, with guest litigation attorney David Williams.Have you ever been laid off only to find that you can't get a job in your field due to a non-compete? Have you ever had an employee walk off with your customer list or your "secret sauce?  As an employee, are you free to leave for a competitor?  As an employer, are your trade secrets protected.? If you aren't sure, this episode of Is That Even Legal is for you.More on the December Workshop. See also https://www.justice.gov/atr/events/public-workshop-promoting-competition-labor-markets#informationAccording to the FTC, Over the two days (12/6 and 12/7) a series of panels, presentations, and remarks will address competition issues affecting labor markets and the welfare of workers, including: labor monopsony; the increased use of restrictive contractual clauses in labor agreements, including non-competes and non-disclosure agreements; information sharing and benchmarking activity among competing employers; the role of other federal agencies in ensuring fair competition in labor markets; and the relationship between antitrust law and collective bargaining efforts in the “gig economy.”  Panelists will be invited to discuss potential steps antitrust enforcers can take to better target enforcement resources, improve public guidance, and pursue a “whole of government” approach to ensuring fair competition for workers and consumers by leveraging interagency resources.The FTC and the DOJ Antitrust Division invite comments from the public on the topics covered by this workshop.

On this Thanksgiving Episode of FTCUTD, Greggo and Skye are joined by Cultureverse member Kaiya McCollough, having linked up over the weekend in Louvegas, we recap our trip covering the NWSL Championship between Chicago Red Stars and the Washington Spirit, which saw Washington grab their first NWSL title off the maestro performance from Trinity Rodman. We go thru our experiences in the city, meeting colleagues we've come in contact with on social media, and the vibes felt thru the weekend. But good things don't last long, as news broke late Sunday night that Chicago Head Coach Rory Dames resigned, shortly before a major story broke that Dames was the subject of multiple complaints by several players, including USWNT star (and former CRS player) Christen Press, in which also involve dismissed complaints that went up to the US Soccer Federation office. We discuss that and how the relationship between the NWSL and US Soccer hierarchy (namely former WNT head coach Jill Ellis) fostered an environment that retaliated against those who supported pro-Black agendas. As the league goes into an offseason of uncertainty, we give our exasperated thoughts on what comes next for the league (also be sure to catch a special Shea Butter FC/Diaspora United 2-part pod that goes into this in much deeper detail). In the 2nd half of the show, Kaiya subs out for Gameday Ty, where we go into the first round of the MLS Playoffs, which saw the Home Team go out in a whimper to NYCFC and our frustration with teams playing in Yankee Stadium, and perennial power Seattle go out in a shock shootout loss to Real Salt Lake, and we give our picks on the 2nd round of the playoffs.  Wrapping up the topics we go into the inevitable dismissal of Ole Gunnar Solksjaer at Manchester United following another embarrassing loss, and the potential of Mauricio Pochettino dipping out on PSG to take the United job.  In 2UP/2Down we go into car purchases, Thanksgiving greens, and MORE!!

In the letter, the president says there is "mounting evidence of anti-consumer behavior by oil and gas companies.” Will the president be able to successfully lay at least some of the climbing prices on these companies?

Oil prices are finally falling. Thank China and Joe Bidenhttps://www.cnn.com/2021/11/18/investing/premarket-stocks-trading/index.html- Is it really China and Biden?

Mostly women, millennials and high-net worth investors- are the funds actually helping the climate? the jury is still out.Dr. Jeff Colgan - New book, "Partial Hegemony: Oil Politics and International Order"- Is OPEC really a cartel? - is it a group of producers that can actually control market to a certain degree or enough to move prices?- Argues that OPEC is not actually a cartel - HQ in Vienna, meetings all the time but can't really change what its members do- Saudi Arabia has market power but it doesn't need OPEC to do that. - Are the members of OPEC actually greater than the sum of their parts?- OPEC isn't amplifying their power in any way.- How do we know this? OPEC members cheat on their quotas 96% of the time (since 1982)- Has this changed with addition of Russia and creation of OPEC+? But that's a producer to producer relationship. There are 3 really big producers in the world (Saudi Arabia, Russia and US). It matters when they fight, but that will happen without OPEC+ existing at all.- OPEC used to be a collective bargaining unit and acted as such through its founding until 1973.- OPEC's announcements and monthly meetings matter because they shape perceptions. But don't impact fundamentals over a period of 3-6 months. Media tends to overreact to OPEC.- OPEC is constantly being sued in Europe and US for being a cartel. Antitrust suites all the time. OPEC general council doesn't want OPEC to call itself a cartel to avoid legal repercussions. - Politicians in US also love to have OPEC to blame when prices go up and down as well.- Information sharing within OPEC is a very valuable part of what OPEC does, especially for poor countries that don't have the money to shell out for data. Though joining OPEC does cost several million dollars a year- Biden is trying to walk a difficult line with oil - green agenda vs. more oil from OPEC?- BIden memo to FTC is political theater as well.- Coordinated SPR release to change market fundamentals and/or perceptions but India and China aren't members of the IEA.- Original purpose of SPRs were for emergency situations, not just because gasoline is a little more expensive. Bad habit to use it this way. Most of the time these kinds of releases don't move prices much at all - other than after a natural disaster or state of emergency.- Find him on twitter @JeffDColganhttps://www.amazon.com/Partial-Hegemony-Politics-International-Order/dp/0197546382/

Mike and Dave talk about the end of off-Amazon rebates and coupons and what they think sellers across the white-hat-black-hat spectrum will be doing moving forward.   You really can't predict what Amazon will do next these days. One minute I make a prediction that they won't ban rebates because it makes them money, the next minute they're bringing the hammer down on RebateKey.   In this episode, Dave and I will break down Amazon's latest policy drop regarding off-Amazon rebates and coupons, what the next white-hat and black-hat tactics are likely going to be, and how you can still succeed on Amazon moving forward.    Timestamps: Why the FTC might consider rebates as review manipulation - 5:22 What the Amazon policy update means for sellers - 7:09 The future of RebateKey and rebates in general - 12:19 How much data Amazon has on its users and which data it tracks - 19:50 Will Amazon start banning sellers for using rebates? - 25:29   EcomCrew blog articles mentioned:  Amazon Official Kills Rebates: What Does It Mean?
