To avoid class actions, start treating your website legal terms like real contracts.

Your online business is humming along, people are signing-up and buying stuff online, all while you assume that the business is protected by the legal terms and conditions that you are (ideally) presenting via some clickwrap agreement.  Then POOF you get sued -- and not just any lawsuit -- but a dreaded class action lawsuit! You think "no problem, our terms and conditions have a class action waiver that requires arbitration."

How business legal can influence customer micro-moments

I missed a phone call from the car dealership while listening to a voicemail from my doctor’s office, got a calendar notification cancelling my morning coffee meeting, browsed a sale from a retail email, and accepted two friend requests all while walking into 7:00p.m. Zumba class.

More online searches and interactions are taking place on mobile devices now more than ever before.

These little moments between our everyday activities, found in Google's guide, "Winning the Shift to Mobile," are called micro-moments. They’re the “I-want-to-know,” “I-want-to-go,” “I-want-to-do,” “I-want-to-buy” moments that every marketer should know about. Because I already know that you’re thinking that managing any type of business legal isn’t the same as being a marketer, I’m going to save us some time and call a spade a spade by saying that your spade is wrong. You’re always a marketer. You market who you represent and you market yourself.

Because ain’t nobody else tryna.
