Making a Social Media Contract
A Social Media Contract doesn't have to be rigid. You aren't creating this document so you can micromanage every employee's Twitter, after all. Rather, it makes sure that your employees' presence on social media doesn't reflect poorly on your company, whether they're running your brand's online persona or simply maintaining their own accounts. Generally, having employees who are active on social media is a great thing for a growing business. They can be your evangelists, increase your reputation, and talk about how much fun it is to work for you. You don't want to nip that in the bud. Instead, you just want to make sure nobody says anything that might put your business in an uncomfortable spot. It's a good idea, for example, to ask employees to proclaim their personal accounts are solely their own opinions, not that of your company.
Whether your company is active on social media or not, it's a smart idea to create a Social Media Contract with your employees. After all, social media is omnipresent and your employees can very easily be seen as a reflection of your company's culture and values. That's why it's important to set out some rules about what your employees can and can't say in a Social Media Contract, as well as who exactly gets access to your official social media channels.
The fees associated with meeting and hiring a conventional lawyer can total anywhere between hundreds of dollars to thousands, if the matter is complex. With Rocket Lawyer, every contract that you create can be created especially for you. Simply click on the "Make document" button to get started. As with any document that you sign, you might also find it helpful to ask a Rocket Lawyer On Call® attorney to read it over for you.
Upon finishing this contract, you will have the ability to review it anytime and anywhere. You also can engage with your document in any or all of the following ways: making edits, printing it out, getting RocketSign® electronic signatures, and downloading it as a PDF document or Word file. Attached to your Social Media Contract, you'll discover a list of tips on what to do next. As a best practice, you should store a final copy of the signed contract in your employee files.
If you attempt it on your own, finding a lawyer to review your Social Media Contract can be time-consuming and fairly costly. Sometimes an attorney will not even accept requests to review documents that they did not draft. If an attorney does decide to offer feedback, they would still make you pay their standard fees to do so. A more cost-effective option is to request help from the Rocket Lawyer On Call® network of attorneys. With a Premium membership, you can get your documents evaluated by an experienced attorney. Whether you end up making additional copies of your Social Media Agreement or other agreements, we are here to help.
