Marketers must seize brief windows of opportunity to stay timely and relevant, which makes a traditional, formal approval process self defeating. Furthermore, influencers, whether paid or unpaid often have their own ideas about the products they use and seldom keep to a script. How are companies, regulators and advertising platforms adjusting to this new claims landscape, and what does the future look like for claims in a digital world?
