TCPA prosecutors are racing like highly trained athletes into competition for first attacks on any company calling other businesses. Most unsuspecting targets entirely devoid of Do-Not-Call or Telephone Consumer Protection Act safeguards. Folks that are going to sue you under these call prohibition statutes have done it before. Or they work for somebody that does it for a living. [Click Video]
B2B "Bad Self" talk:
"We want to scrub all of the lists that we provide to our telemarketing agents for compliance" - Just not today.
"Phone numbers are public records, right? So they're O.K. to call." That would be a 'no'.
"We're just making them aware of possibilities, not trying to sell anything." - Huh?
"Most businesses today have cell numbers also, so that too is a business number, and I can call it, right?" No again.
It's pretty easy for B2B's to comply.
Less intrusive, with less number fallout (than B2C's) for companies taking a crack at primary Do-Not-Call and TCPA safeguards. Enough to make a winnable case for expert compliance defense attorneys should you ever end up in litigation.
Most B2B's have no TCPA compliance procedures. And have no chance in court.
Businesses that have signed up for Do-Not-Call lists, especially cell owners, aren't going to buy anything anyway, will waste your salesperson's time, and have a much higher propensity to complain to well advertised FCC and Consumer Financial Protection Bureau websites, the pre-curser of compliance problems!
