DMEa/WardsAuto Webinar: Best Practices for Compliant Marketing

Webinar on Tuesday, December 4th, at 2 p.m. EST provides a crash course on the rules of compliant customer communications, including education on state and federal regulations


Daytona Beach, FL –November 28th, 2012 – DMEautomotive (DMEa), the science-inspired, results-based automotive marketing leader, announces its upcoming webinar hosted with WardsAuto on Tuesday, December 4th at 2 p.m. EST. This free event addresses the critical issues of compliance, including recent FCC rule changes, and provides additional important information and best practices for compliant customer communications.

Guided by Mike Martinez, CMO at DMEautomotive and Eric Sloan, Vice President of Compliance for DMEautomotive, Best Practices for Compliant Marketing is designed to empower dealers to maintain proactive customer communications 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 and be communicated with.

Key topics to be covered 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 -- and quickly. With businesses settling nearly $100 million in claims under the Telephone Consumer Protection Act in 2012 alone, dealerships could be just one communication away from an expensive class-action lawsuit and bankruptcy,” said Sloan.  “This seminar is a wake-up call to dealers not to wait until it’s too late.  Attendees should leave this webinar with a better understanding of the information they need - and the best practices for – compliant communications in a rapidly evolving technology, regulatory and litigation environment.”
