Do I need to register as a business?

    Hi guys:


    I'm currently running a blog that has been picking up in terms of web traffic. I'd like to start expanding my reach into other niches but I would need other writers. I can't afford to employ a team so my idea was to have independent writers pitch content to me and then pay them a percentage of the ad revenue for the day(s) that their work was featured. My question is would I have to register as a business to do this? Or deal with any tax stuff? I can't imagine I'll be making more than $10 a day in terms of revenue -- at least from the get go.

    Hey guys,


    we are Fabian and Ivan from Hamburg, Germany and try to realize our lifetime dream through Kickstarter (Crowd funding).

    In fact we dislike self-promotion in terms of spam but in our current position there is no other possibility and otherwise we can bury our lifetime dream.

    Our plan is to found a new fashion brand. Fashion means to us shoes, fragrances for him and her and headphones. Our marketing-concept is based on promotion through celebrities. In the past it was possible to us to get a good connection to popular people. There onto we want to open a store in Los Angeles, Hollywood to emphasize the elegance and exclusivity.

    For our big plan we need 3.5Mio € to be competitive on the international market. In this cause we published our intentions on Kickstarter to get our project financed through crowd funding.

    It would be awesome if you support us. Every euro brings us further and of course we have little considerations for you helping us.

    We got after 12 hours almost 12.000€.

    We thank you with all our heart and you can have a look at the following link:


    Best regards,

    Fabian and Ivan
