advertising regulations

Under the law, claims in advertisements must be truthful, cannot be deceptive or unfair, and must be evidence-based. For some specialized products or services, additional rules apply. If you use endorsements in your marketing, they must meet the standards of the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) Act and the FTC’s endorsement guides. And if your business works with influencers (often social media influencers), or if you are an influencer yourself, or if you have another material connection to a brand (you’re related to the owner), you must disclose those material connections when promoting the brand, as required by the FTC.
