Over 85 percent of the websites in the U.S. are not in compliance with state or federal law.
This is because these websites and lack required legal disclosures or have out-of-date privacy policies (or no privacy policies at all). Even worse, many of the privacy policies that these websites and blogs use are of poor quality and put the website owner at risk of legal liability and lawsuits from users and customers.
Start Protecting Your Clients
Most Internet consultants and business coaches have little experience on how to help their clients comply with state or federal laws regarding privacy policies, disclosures, disclaimers, and other requirements relating to websites. If you are a website or Internet consultant, this is a gap in the services you offer to your clients. If you don’t fill that gap, your competitors likely will.
As a Internet consultant or coach, you should have at least a basic understanding of website requirements to help your clients protect themselves and comply with laws and regulations. I am not talking about giving “legal advice” based on your own opinion. The documents and information to which I am referring are not intended to replace legal advice from an attorney.
I am talking about giving your clients high-quality information and documents from our attorneys, the FTC, Canada, and the state of California. This is not only legal, but will help you provide a unique and valuable service to your clients. If at some point, your clients do get legal advice from an attorney, they will be better prepared and could save a significant amount of money in document drafting fees.
After all, much of the information and documents that we offer were drafted by attorneys who are experienced in Internet law and who have served clients like Pfizer, the Chicago Board of Trade, Fireman’s Fund Insurance, and Lloyd’s of London. We also sell the same documents to other law firms, which use them for their clients. It is highly unlikely that your clients will find elsewhere the same high-quality documents and information that we offer.
In many cases, a company’s eCommerce website is a significant part of its business. Consequently, providing consulting or coaching services to business owners without helping them protect their online businesses makes little sense, especially if you want to keep their long-term business. Yes, you could send them somewhere else to get their documents and information. However, what message does that send to your clients?
The ability to help your clients comply with the fundamental requirements for operating a website or blog will add a new dimension to your services that almost none of your competitors offer. This new service will also create a new profit-generating stream, as well as increase the likelihood that your clients will continue using your services.
