#Sponstagram Is Changing The Marketing Landscape, But FTC Violations Are Changing Its Course

Sponsored content on Instagram is becoming as commonplace as brunch pics. Instagram has seen massive growth in the last year, adding over 200 million users and launching Instagram Stories, a Snapchat-like feature that, on its own, outscores Snapchat in daily active users. Going hand-in-hand with Instagram’s growth, the influencer marketing industry on Instagram has seen major gains.

Influencer marketing on Instagram alone will be a $1 billion industry in 2017 and is projected to increase to over $2 billion by 2019. Sponsored posts on Instagram, or #Sponstagram, is a major (and growing) phenomenon, which may lead to more regulation and monitoring from the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and from Instagram itself.

FTC vs. Warner Bros: The Critical Lessons Marketers Must Know

FTC vs. Warner Bros: The Critical Lessons Marketers Must Know

For the latest authoritative marketing news, trends, and stats on social media stars and influencer marketing, subscribe to our industry digest newsletter!

What Marketers Can Learn From The Warner Bros. FTC Case

Sponsored social media posts have a profound impact on consumer habits, as evidenced by the fact that 74% of consumers now rely on social media when making purchasing decisions. As a result, influencer marketing is one of the most rapidly growing sectors of the advertising industry and is at least a $1 billion market on Instagram alone.

But the effect that social media influencers can have on their audiences comes with a responsibility to properly disclosure sponsored content. In the past year, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has been cracking down on influencers and brands who are not following its guidelines for disclosures, which play an important role in protecting consumers from deceptive advertising

Warner Bros. was one of the first companies examined under FTC scrutiny for proper disclosures on social media, but improper disclosure remains a serious problem. Over 90% of sponsored posts from top celebrities on Instagram violate FTC disclosure guidelines, making transparency on the platform a major problem. The good news is that marketers can learn a number of key lessons from the mistakes of companies like Warner Bros. In this case study, we’ll take a closer look at why Warner Bros. ran into trouble with the FTC and how marketers can avoid ending up in a similar situation.

Lessons Learned From The Lord & Taylor FTC Case

What The Lord & Taylor Case Can Teach Us About FTC Compliance In Influencer Marketing

Just over two years ago, department store Lord & Taylor partnered with Nylon and Instagram influencers for a marketing campaign to promote a specific piece — a paisley dress — from its new Design Lab. The dress appeared on 50 influencer channels on the same day, and Nylon ran an article and posted a photo to its own Instagram account promoting the dress.

This is the way of new media advertising. In order to reach consumers effectively, advertisers have to find them where they’re spending time. Native advertising on social media platforms and on publishing websites is an effective method for reaching audiences in a way that’s natural and targeted. But when it failed to require disclosures from its influencers and from Nylon, Lord & Taylor found out the hard way that native advertising isn’t exempt from the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) guidelines and regulations that protect consumers from deceptive advertising practices.

Case Study: How Walmart Uses Cause Marketing & Instagram Influencers

In April, Walmart kicked off its “Fight Hunger. Spark Change.” campaign, in partnership with Feeding America. Walmart has a longstanding history of being a highly charitable company, ranking 2nd on Fortune’s 20 Most Generous Companies of the Fortune 500 list and donating a total of $1.6 billion to charitable causes in 2016.

This year, the social media portion of Walmart’s annual campaign is playing a larger role than ever before. Walmart is not alone in combining cause marketing with social media, a technique we saw in Stella Artois’ social media campaign with water.org.  Given that 87% of consumers say they would switch from one brand to another if the other brand supported a good cause, charitable campaigns can aid marketers on both the strategic and altruistic front.
