Companies that use phone calls or text message to promote their goods or services face an array of regulatory challenges. The FCC's Telemarketing Consumer Protection Act (TCPA), the FTC’s Telemarketing Sales Rule (TSR) and even state-specific telemarketing and DNC rules control how you contact consumers via phone calls and text messages.
Companies face risks from both regulators and consumers. Violations of the telemarketing and DNC rules are subject to fines of up to $40,000 per violation and these rules are regularly enforced by the federal regulators and state's attorneys general. The TCPA provides consumers with a private right of action which has led to thousands of lawsuits per year and settlements for tens of millions of dollars. It's also important to keep in mind the possibility of PR damage to your organization. The effects of negative publicity can be worse for a company long-term than the fine or settlement.
