Today (13th Nov 2013) the ASA (Advertising Standards Authority) sent out a press release about ‘why it pays to know the ad rules’.
More and more PRs and brands are using bloggers to reach their audiences becuase some can be very influential. Even more so than the leading publication!
Even though most PR’s already know the rules and abide by them, but just to make it clear the ASA set out some rules about sending samples to bloggers/vloggers/blaggers for people in the media, and also making it clear that bloggers know how to correctly blog without being fined.
The full write up can be read here, but BloggaBase (a blogger outreach service which allows people to request products to review as well as be reached by PRs who have products they’d like for them to review) has posted the main summary from it all here.
1.If a blogger is paid to say something positive then it becomes an advertisement and they must disclose it. Bloggers can and should make it clear if their blog contains paid for content by signposting it as “ad”, “advertorial” or “sponsored content”.
2.Bloggers must not falsely present themselves as consumers. i.e. giving a view that appears to be opinion but that is actually paid for. This is a Trading Standards issue as well as for the ASA to investigate.
3.Although the blogger would be named as part of any ASA investigation into misleading advertising, the buck stops with the advertiser. If a paid for entry on a blog wasn’t disclosed the ASA would investigate and hold the advertiser accountable.
4.The rules DO NOT prohibit PR companies sending free gifts or samples to bloggers in the hope of receiving a positive review
It’s important those that work in PR and marketing AND bloggers are both aware of the rules surrounding paid posts and declaration.
