Disclosure adds umph to buzz marketing

I’ve discussed why disclosure is important in word-of-mouth advertising, also known as “buzz” marketing, because of the potential problems with the Federal Trade Commission or state regulators. Now a study by a Northeastern University professor suggests disclosure is more than a sound legal practice. According to the study, buzz campaigns were more likely to be passed on to other consumers — at a rate of 70% — when an advertiser is disclosed.
