FTC Guardian Educational Webinar Series

Why It’s So Easy for Small Businesses to be Sued by the Federal Trade Commission

Presented By:


Small Business Owners: these 3 factors are the reasons reputable small businesses can get sued by the FTC, and in some cases how their management can become personally liable for damages.

  • Most FTC Regulations involve detailed, specific requirements. And there are no obvious, specific strategies or formulas for compliance. You’re on your own to figure it out.
  • Most small business owners “Don’t Know What They Don’t Know”. This is a cliché, but there is a lot of truth to it because most small business owners don’t have a source of information regarding new developments and how to comply with them.

FTC Guardian has identified 3 specific areas for that are critical for small businesses to navigate in a hyper-regulated environment.

  1. Privacy & Data Security. In 2023, 5 states will have their own privacy-data security laws. Do you understand how compliance with these laws will affect the value of your business? 
  2. Testimonials & Reviews. Do you know that a success-story testimonial is regulated by the FTC as an ad claim? And do you know that the FTC requires a very specific disclosure?
  3. Accessibility Compliance. Are you aware that there have been thousands of lawsuits filed by plaintiff’s attorneys in the last few years over the American’s With Disabilities Act (ADA)? 

Here’s how FTC Guardian.com can help. We’ve put together an educational webinar that will give you a head’s up on these 3 areas that’s easy to understand and apply. You’ll become a smarter marketer for your business.
