Show Notes

When it comes to marketing, how should multi-location businesses manage legal compliance issues?

In this episode, Matt Nickols (CEO of MarketSnare) and Elliot Olson (Sales & Marketing Manager of MarketSnare) explore various topics related to legal compliance and multi-location marketing, including:

* If you’re marketing across state lines, or across various counties, you should be knowledgeable about various legal concerns for each region.

* When it comes to networks of multi-location businesses (e.g. dealers, agents, franchises, etc.), it’s also important to adhere to what we refer to as “brand compliance.” This isn’t a legal term. To us, it means: Are the various representations of your brand across multiple locations in alignment? In other words, are your brand messages consistent across all of your markets?

* In certain industries, such as healthcare and financing, legal and compliance issues get complicated when a business is running various local websites and customized local marketing campaigns.

* The recent development of companies needing to provide ways for users to opt-out of their consumer data being tracked.

* Europe’s law on data protection and privacy, called the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

* The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPR).
