Virtual Advice:AM | Promotions, Discounts & Competitions


19 May 2020 | 09.30 - 11.30

This interactive live webinar will cover all the same information as our face-to-face training events, as well as giving you the opportunity to speak to the experts, with plenty of Q&A's.

Competitions and prize draws, discounts and “free” items with a purchase can all count as Promotional Marketing. This session will give you greater knowledge and understanding of the promotional marketing rules which in turn will help you to run effective and compliant campaigns. 

Our experts will use case studies to illustrate where advertisers have fallen foul of the rules, guide delegates through the Advertising Codes and explain how the ASA applies the rules to promotional marketing.

Each attendee will be given access to our 'Insiders' Guide to the ASA and CAP' online training module. This will give you a good base level of knowledge of the regulatory system, to enable you to get the most out of the session.

This seminar will provide you with two CPD hours.
