Toe the Line on Do Not Call

Lots of businesses rely on telemarketers to sell their products and services. If you’re one of them, you’ve probably heard of the National Do Not Call Registry, which gives people the right to limited unwanted telemarketing calls. Did you know people have placed more than 200 million phone numbers on the Do Not Call list?

With so many consumers choosing to limit the number of telemarketing calls they get, complying with Do Not Call makes good business sense. Compliance lets you focus your marketing budget on people interested in what you’re selling and shows that you respect consumers’ preferences for privacy. And legitimate telemarketers know that violators can expect to hear from the FTC, the agency that enforces Do Not Call.

Wondering if contractors you hire must comply with Do Not Call? Want to learn more about the existing business relationship exemption? Not sure how much your Registry fees are or where to pay? This video answers those questions and tells you more about complying with Do Not Call.
