DMEa/Automotive News Webinar: Best Practices for Compliant Marketing

Free webinar on October 30th, 2012, at 2 p.m. teaches dealers best practices for compliant marketing

Daytona Beach, FL–October 23, 2012 – DMEautomotive (DMEa), the science-inspired, results-based automotive marketing leader, announces the fourth in a series of webinars the company is hosting with Automotive News. This webinar addresses the critical issues of compliance, including recent FCC rule changes, and provides additional important information and best practices for compliant customer communications. The webinar will take place on October 30th at 2 p.m. EDT. 

Titled Best Practices for Compliant Marketing, the webinar is moderated by Peter Brown, publisher at Automotive News, and will feature the industry expertise of Mike Martinez, CMO and Eric Sloan, Vice President of Compliance for DMEautomotive. This information-packed webinar will empower participants to protect their businesses and maintain proactive communications with potential and existing consumers in an environment where rapidly changing technology means that both businesses and regulatory authorities are in a race to keep up with how consumers like, and do not like, to communicate.

Key topics covered will include:

  • Education on state and federal regulations, and how they directly impact customer communications.
  • Tips on creating effective communication in accordance with current law.
  • Best practices in managing opt-ins and acquiring prior express written consent.
  • Q&A session with compliance and business law expert - DMEautomotive’s Vice President of Compliance.

“The legal landscape for advertising communications is constantly changing,” stated Sloan, “but with evolving technology and a growing body of litigation and regulatory enforcement, businesses must, now more than ever, educate themselves to ensure that a simple communication does not open them up to a costly lawsuit.” The Best Practices for Compliant Marketing webinar is a crash course on the rules of communicating with your customers.”
