In his BlogWell New York presentation, “Honesty is the Best Policy: Best Practices for Disclosure in Social Media,” Andy Sernovitz, CEO of GasPedal and the Blog Council, shared how disclosure enhances marketing, and — if done properly — helps word of mouth.

Andy outlines three standard practices to eliminate gray areas with regards to disclosure: Present your true identity, state whether you were paid to comment or post, and make it known if what you are saying is your personal opinion or that of the brand’s.
