Why do large companies cast their agents into the sea of Do Not Call compliance with nothing but a wish and a prayer? No National Registration. No expertise. And make them promise to protect themselves against the Do Not Call Laws?
Why Doesn't my Company Provide Agent DNC Compliance?
This video is for informational purposes. Be sure to consult your own attorney for questions specific to your business.
I’ve always wondered about this one. I’ve been in meetings with Lawyers representing 6000 real estate agents that refused to even register the company with the National List, for whatever reason. (Implied liability maybe?) But, sadly, it’s fairly common.
I’ve also had agents, after finding what they consider to be a robust DNC Calling Solution, beg their managers to put a company-wide system in place, to no avail. See: "Tips to keep Independent Agents from getting Do Not Call Fines."
It’s not uncommon for companies to know they are in violation of the DNC Laws, and just wait till something goes wrong, and then dump it in their General Counsel’s lap.
So I get a lot of lost souls wanting to make cold calls, pressured by their sales managers and headquarters to do better, make quota, and be a star. See: "Vendor Oversight: Overlooked Component of TCPA & Do Not Call Compliance."
You’re not alone in searching for a compliant TCPA calling solution.
I will always have a place in my heart for individuals wanting to make calls, and am happy to help. I’ve been there.
And rest assured: You will attract the attention of the company on whose behalf you’re calling if you do nothing to protect yourself, and headquarters gets hit with a suit based on your calls! Oh yeah, now that little line in your company agreement, “You agree to handle all Do Not Call and TCPA Compliance procedures” can really come back to bite. And they won’t hesitate to terminate any financial arrangements you’ve built up over the years. See: "Calling on behalf of Clients: TCPA Law Liability."
So find an easy-to-use, instant, number-checking tool that’s fully archived and hopefully backed by a major DNC provider, and let your company know what you’re using for DNC.
Whatever you do, before you pick up the phone, don’t get discouraged and do nothing about DNC Compliance. Register for your five free area codes here and get a Subscription Authorization Number (SAN), and use it to open an account with a reputable DNC compliance provider. See: "Do Not Call Protection Solutions."
You’ll sleep better at night knowing you won’t get the dreaded letter from your State AG inquiring about a complaint or two from your friends and neighbors. You’ll relax knowing if someone does get mad at you, your present and future financial arrangements are as protected as they can be.
And it’ll free you up to do what you do best: Contribute to folks by changing their lives with your product or service!
