Emma Smith is the Copy Advice Manager at the Committee of Advertising Practice (CAP). She studied entertainment law before joining the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA)’s compliance team in 2011.
Emma joined the CAP Copy Advice Team in 2015 and took over as manager in 2017. The team provides advertisers, agencies and publishers with free and confidential advice on non-broadcast advertising giving an informed view of how best to navigate the CAP Code.
In this episode we go through the guidelines from the ASA and CAP and how it relates to the kind of content influencers and online entrepreneurs publish. We discuss different scenarios and Emma gives clear advice on how to label all of your posts.
With thanks to the team at ASA and CAP for enabling this interview.
