For the third year in a row we have teamed up with Santa Claus to to deliver personalized gifts in the form of free Santa calls to children all across the United States.
Last year DialMyCalls and Santa Claus
sent out over 30,000 personalized greetings to children. We are proud
to announce that our annual Christmas event has returned and is
better than ever - we are on track to send out over 100,000 calls
from Santa this holiday season!
This year parents can send up to three
(3) personalized calls from Santa Claus per household - additional
calls may be purchased for a small fee. Put a smile on your child's
face when they pick up the phone and hear Santa Claus on the other
line - help us spread joy this holiday season by setting up a
personalized call from Santa!
DialMyCalls is extremely grateful that Santa Claus has been able to take time off from delivering presents to call children all across the United States. Parents, you are able to schedule a call from Santa Claus through December 26, 2013 at which point in time good ole' Saint Nick will retire until next year!
Help celebrate Christmas 2013 and put a smile on a child's face today by scheduling Free Santa Calls!

As of October 16, 2013 the FCC and TCPA
(Telephone Consumer Protection Act) have revised the rules in place
regarding unwanted autodialed and/or robocalls.
We met with the FCC and are under the
impression that the majority of DialMyCalls members do not need to
worry much when it comes to the new TCPA regulations as they have
been and will remain in compliance. Members such as churches,
non-profits, sports leagues and other organizations that utilize our
voice and text message broadcasting service to send out "informational calls" need not worry - the new changes directly
target telemarketers and sales calls.
You should still make sure that you have expressed permission when calling members of your school or organization and always have an opt-out procedure in place. This way people who no longer wish to receive your messages can be removed from your contact lists and added into your DialMyCalls "Do-Not-Contact" list.
DialMyCalls has always taken a firm stance on not allowing any kind of unsolicited or sales messages to be sent from our system. We will continue to notify and terminate any accounts found attempting to send any type of sales messages from our system.
Customers sending political calls should be aware that you are no longer allowed to send any kind of political calls to cellphones without expressed consent. You should make sure you use a carrier lookup service to remove any cellphone numbers from your voter lists before sending messages.
Changes to the TCPA regulations directly affect members using voice and SMS text messages for marketing purposes. What does this all mean to you and your DialMyCalls marketing account? To put it simply, as long as you read and comply with the new rules then you are free to continue using DialMyCalls. What exactly are the new TCPA rules and how do they affect "sales calls"?
New TCPA Rules (Effective October 16, 2013):
Rule #1 - Prior Written Consent:
Unambiguous written consent required before telemarketing call or
Compliance with the E-SIGN Act satisfies this requirement, meaning that electronic or digital forms of signature are acceptable (i.e., agreements obtained via email, website form, text message, telephone keypress or voice recording).
Consumer consent must be unambiguous, meaning that the consumer must receive a "clear and conspicuous disclosure" that he/she will receive future calls that deliver autodialed and/or pre-recorded telemarketing messages on behalf of a specific advertiser; that his/her consent is not a condition of purchase; and he/she must designate a phone number at which to be reached (which should not be pre-populated by the advertiser in an online form).
Rule #2 - No "established business relationship" exemption: Established business relationship no longer relieves advertisers of prior unambiguous written consent requirement. Advertisers will have to obtain written consumer consent, outlined above, even if they previously had a business relationship with the consumer.
The TCPA is able to fine violators between $500-$1500 for each unsolicited call or message. In determining the final amount of statutory damages to award, courts analyze whether the defendant "willfully" or "knowingly" violated the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.
DialMyCalls must express that the information provided in this blog is entirely for informational purposes and in no way should be utilized as legal advice. To ascertain whether or not your marketing calls or text messages are in compliance with the new and existing TCPA rules, it is recommended that you seek advice from an attorney who specializes in telemarketing and FCC laws.
