Advertising and Marketing Compliance Saves Money
Invest in an online marketing compliance audit before launching digital promotional campaigns.
An online marketing lawyer can help protect you by:
- Reviewing ads, social media campaigns and websites to ensure they meet FTC standards.
- Inspecting promotional language. If you're fast and loose with marketing copy, the FTC may come knocking.
- Legally monitoring the efforts of your affiliate marketing partners. (Yes, the FTC holds operators responsible for the machinations of affiliates.)
Federal Trade Commission (FTC) Investigation Counsel & Defense
The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) is tasked with ridding the U.S. marketplace of "unfair and deceptive" marketing.
What should you do if the FTC launches an investigation into you or your business?
- Don't contact the FTC without the advice of a lawyer; you could say something that may hurt your case in the long run;
- Gather materials and make copies; and
- Stay calm. An investigation is just that, an investigation -- not a conviction.
