Influencer Marketing Updates
Ad Standards has released updates to both Interpretation Guideline #5 and the Influencer Disclosure Guidelines. Interpretation Guideline #5 speaks to the obligation under the Code to disclose when there is a material connection between the influencer and a brand. Updates to the Influencer Disclosure Guidelines provide more examples of what triggers the need to disclose a material connection, and how to make that disclosure.
