Establish and Maintain a Prosperous Online Business
Turn to an attorney who understands how online businesses work to protect your brand and ensure your company flourishes.
Running an online business requires many different skill sets. In the early days, you are often playing many roles, including those of sales manager, administrative assistant, IT professional, accountant, and even attorney. As your business grows, you may decide to hire a virtual assistant, contract workers, and, eventually, part-time or full-time employees. Each level you reach on the road toward building your business will require you to have different legal protections in place.
Just like you, I am running an online business through my website. I happen to sell legal services, but I have a firm understanding of various online business models, including, but not limited to:
- Direct sales of physical products
- Digital products
- Affiliate marketing
- Course creation
- Brand influence marketing
- Life coaching
- Motivational speaking
If you are still in the early stages of building the business, you may not fully understand the need for an attorney. However, obtaining legal assistance early on can help save you money in the long run. An experienced and diligent attorney will take the time to understand how your business is set up, what intellectual property needs to be protected, what kind of contract language is best for your business, and how your target market might best understand certain legal information, among other things.
How Hiring an Attorney Early on Can Help Your Online Business Save Money
If you are in the early stages of building your online business, hiring an attorney is probably not at the top of your to-do list. For one, you may not have the resources to procure legal counsel at this stage. Or, you may be intimidated by the idea of speaking with an attorney about your new business. You may even be concerned about sounding ignorant with regard to your market campaigns.
These are all legitimate concerns. However, the cost of hiring an attorney to help you review your business contracts now, while you are still in the start-up phase, is much lower than what you may end up paying a lawyer to defend you in a breach of contract lawsuit later. Likewise, it’s much less expensive to hire an attorney to trademark your brand up front as opposed to paying a lawyer to send out numerous cease and desist letters or represent you in litigation against copycats after your online business is established.
To further help protect your business interests, I’ve created the Atlanta Entrepreneur’s Program. The Atlanta Entrepreneur’s Program includes your choice of three monthly legal service plans which provide critical small business legal services for a reasonable price. Plus, there is no set-up fee and no minimum monthly commitment. I designed the Atlanta Entrepreneur’s Program specifically with you, a new business owner, in mind.
