There has been a vast increase, over the last few years, in the use of advertising on social media platforms, for example Twitter, Facebook and Google+.  As we all know these platforms can be seen by anybody, at any time & from many different devices, so it is extremely important for advertisers to make sure that their marketing communications are recognisable and do not mislead or offend consumers.




Marketing communications should allow consumers to make informed decisions regarding the product but also the issue of whether the commercial nature of the marketing communications is clear needs to be considered.

Our specialists from the ASA & CAP will present on all areas of social media marketing.  They will provide you with lots of case studies and offer a practical guide on how to keep your ads legal, decent, honest and truthful.

What will be covered?

  • Overview of ad regulation - how the ASA and CAP work
  • Remit: Advertising and incorporating User Generated Contents (UGC)
  • Identifying marketing communications e.g. vlogging
  • Social media promotions
  • Case studies and examples of ASA rulings
  • Resources available to marketers and agencies to ensure campaigns comply with the rules
  • Q&A

Unfortunately we cannot answer specific queries regarding individual ad campaigns during the seminar.  This is owing to time constraints during the seminar and the need to make sure the seminar is relevant for all participants. We do however have a confidential advice service you can use - Copy Advice Team.

Who should attend?

The seminar will offer essential knowledge for anyone who is involved in commissioning, producing or overseeing marketing communications. This will be beneficial for you if you are involved in producing advertising, marketing or sales promotion campaigns for yourself or your client
