I am thrilled to welcome Kerry O’Shea Gorgone as the first guest on The Fan-Damn-Tastic Marketing Show! Kerry spoke at the Y’all Connect conference in Birmingham last week, and I was lucky enough to get a few minutes of her time to talk about some legal issues regarding social media and marketing in general!

Kerry was kind enough to talk to me about two topics for this episode of #FanDamnShow. The first was legal implications of live-streaming, and how to know if your social media contest is legal. Here’s the Show Notes:
1:50 – What do brands need to know if they plan on using Meerkat or Periscope for live-streaming
3:00 – Prepping your live-stream, what you need to know before you get started
4:00 – Some music artists are encouraging fans to live-stream their concerts. Is this ok?
5:45 – How to carefully plan your live-stream
6:45 – What if a brand’s fan creates a live-stream promoting that brand, could the brand be liable?
10:00 – What Kerry does for MarketingProfs and also what the Marketing Writing Bootcamp is all about
14:15 – The basic differences between a contest, a sweepstakes and a lottery (Hint: You may think you are running a contest but you may actually be running a lottery, be careful!)
16:40 – What to do to make sure that you are running a contest and not a lottery
Kerry has also written a couple of great posts on these topics:
