All advertising and marketing materials need to be accurate and truthful. Understanding email marketing laws is essential for the longevity of any online business. Telemarketing laws are essential to understand if your business will be reaching customers over the phone. A knowledge of employment and labor laws at both a state and federal level is required before hiring any employees.
