Special Notice to Text Club Members
We’ve been made aware of changes to the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) guidelines that will impact the way we manage our text clubs. According to new rules going in place tomorrow, October 16, 2013, we must receive unambiguous written consent from all subscribers to receive any marketing messages. Up until now, we have not done that for any of our station or client clubs.
What does this mean? Q108 had to send out messages to ALL of our text club members asking them to reconfirm that they want to receive marketing messages from us. Anyone who does not give consent will need to be removed from any list that sends any marketing material. This includes offers, coupons, or advertising of any type.
You should have received a text on Tuesday stating: “Enter to win $2500! Reply play to keep our autodialed marketing texts sent to this #! Consent not required to purchase.”
If you wish to remain in our text club, you need to reply with the word “play” otherwise your number will be removed from the database. Replying also will enter you into Q108’s contest where you will be eligible to win $2500.
If you are not a current member of our text club and would like more information regarding our text club, simply text the word “play” to 64636 and start receiving exclusive discounts!
