The FTC press release includes a video with compliance tips. Some of the key take aways are: 1. If you work with a brand to recommend or endorse its products to consumers, then federal and state law impose certain obligations on you as an influencer or endorser. 2.

3. Disclosures should be conspicuous, simple and clear.
