Advice:am Social Media


4 October | 09:30 - 11:30

In recent times, social media has become a core medium for marketers to utilise for the purposes of advertising. Marketing communications on social media must be recognisable as such and must not mislead or offend consumers.

The seminar, delivered by ASA and CAP experts, will provide an in-depth look at the rules for social media advertising. Attendees will benefit from hearing a range of real-life case studies to help understand the rules further and ensure their marketing communications on social media are recognisable.

Each attendee will be given access to our 'Insiders' Guide to the ASA and CAP' online training module. It is strongly recommended that attendees take this module before attending the seminar as it will provide a base level of knowledge that will enable you to get the most out of the seminar.

This seminar will provide you with two CPD hours.
