Dish Network Hit With $20 Million Verdict In Class Action Telemarketing Lawsuit

GREENSBORO, N.C. Jan. 20, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — After a five-day trial, a Greensboro, North Carolina jury handed down a $20.5 million verdict in an unprecedented class action trial against Dish Network. The class, led by class representative Dr. Thomas Krakauer of Bahama, North Carolina. alleged Dish was liable for more than 51,000 telemarketing calls placed by a defunct DISH dealer to persons whose telephone numbers were on the National Do Not Call Registry.

The jury found DISH liable for all calls, and awarded $400 per violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.

“This case has always been about enforcing the Do Not Call law and protecting people from nuisance telemarketing calls,” said Dr. Krakauer. “I am thrilled with the jury’s verdict, and thrilled we were able to win this enforcement action.”

The trial team was led by Brian A. Glasser ( Washington, D.C. ) and John W. Barrett ( Charleston, West Virginia ) of Bailey Glasser, LLP, a 57-lawyer firm headquartered in Charleston, WV. Other key trial team members were Matthew McCue of Massachusetts. Matthew Norris of Raleigh, N.C. and Ryan Donovan of Bailey Glasser. Completing the team were Edward A. Broderick and Anthony Paronich of Broderick Paronich in Boston. and John Roddy of Bailey Glasser’s Boston office.

“We won this case through the testimony of DISH witnesses themselves,” Glasser said. Glasser argued in court that DISH’s order entry retailer program was a corporate shell game, developed so DISH could have all the benefits of illegal telemarketing — the customers — but shoulder none of the responsibility for violating the law.

“We believe this is the first and only jury trial for a certified class of consumers alleging Do Not Call violations,” said Barrett. “This was a strength-in-numbers case, one we could only bring as a class action, where we tried 51,000 claims in a single, five-day trial. We’re particularly pleased with the message this verdict sends about the importance of the Do Not Call laws, the most popular consumer protection law in U.S. history.”

More than 220 million Americans have opted out of receiving home telemarketing calls by registering their telephone numbers on the National Do Not Call Registry. The registry was established through the federal Telephone Consumer Protection Act, or TCPA, which was enacted in 1991 and regulates live, prerecorded and “robocall” telemarketing.

The case was presided over by U.S. District Judge Catherine Eagles of the Middle District of North Carolina .

Peter Bicks. Elyse Echtmann, and John Ewald of Orrick, Herrington Sutcliffe in New York represented DISH.

Founded by Ben Bailey and Brian Glasser in 1999 in Charleston, West Virginia. Bailey Glasser LLP has grown to include 57 lawyers, with offices in nine states and the District of Columbia. The firm’s complex litigation practice focuses on high-stakes commercial litigation; class actions for consumers, insureds, investors, and retirement plan participants; catastrophic injury and defective product cases; antitrust; and whistleblower lawsuits. The firm has extensive experience in energy law, and litigates energy cases in trial courts, bankruptcy courts, regulatory agencies, and appellate courts. It has a major corporate practice, and handles business matters ranging from assisting Chinese investors in acquiring US assets, to IPOs, to the negotiation and execution of billions of dollars in commercial transactions.

Tips: Ten Tips for Measuring – Improving Performance #strategic #planning, #strategic #marketing, #internet #solutions, #solutions,


#

Healthy revenue and profit margins are crucial to any company. However, monitoring your bottom line is only one part of the formula. It�s essential that you determine the factors critical to your company�s success, measure those metrics and put into place a system for continually improving performance. Here are ten guidelines for helping you develop your company�s process.

Define Your Goals: Determine your measures for success. Make your goals challenging, but achievable. Do you want to increase customer retention, improve market share, penetrate a new market segment, change a perception, generate more store traffic, reduce customer complaints? Be specific and make your objectives measurable. For example, by what percentage do you want to increase sales?

Determine the Metrics to Measure Your Company�s Performance: Compile a list of factors that are important in your industry. Criteria may include:

Marketing: sales growth; market share; distribution methods; sales force size, effectiveness and training; advertising budget and effectiveness; inventory levels, delivery time; product quality; customer retention rates

  • Production: plant capacity, locations and age; age of equipment; ability to expand capacity; skill and turnover of labor force; union relations; quality control; supplier retention; raw material sources
  • Administrative: employee turnover, age of facilities
  • Management: experience, depth and turnover of top, middle and supervisory managers; effectiveness of communication systems; access to information; cohesiveness of top management ranks; compensation plans; decision-making speed; strategic planning ability
  • Technology/Research Development: age of R D facilities; age of production technology; production patterns; basic innovation; engineering abilities; experience of R D team; R D budget; R D project timelines
  • Develop Methods to Collect and Organize Data: Determine a process for tracking and reporting all relevant data. Report on trends that emerge from your findings on a regular basis.

    Compare Yourself to the Competition: You can glean a lot by doing your homework, including shopping your competitors. Also check:

    • Annual and 10 K reports on public companies
    • Internet search engines by competitors’ names or key words
    • Trade associations and publications
    • Business and general press as well as press releases
    • Government agencies
    • Private research firms, including online computer databases

    Conduct Research: When you need specific information about your customers and prospects that doesn�t exist, conduct your own primary research.

    There are two types of research: qualitative and quantitative. Qualitative research is used to understand why customers behave as they do or to develop hypotheses about that behavior. Personal interviews and focus groups (a meeting of 8-12 carefully selected people) are two examples of this semi-structured type of survey. Quantitative research is a highly structured form that attempts to answer how much. Numbers can be projected to the universe that the sample represents. Telephone, online and mail surveys are examples.

    Understand Your Strengths and Weaknesses: Rate your company on your developed list of metrics in comparison to your competitors. Look for clusters of strength that may give you a competitive advantage.

    Focus on Customer Retention: Customer retention is a matter of business survival, as getting a new customer is five times more expensive than retaining a current one.

    Work on core product and service attributes to build customer loyalty (such as treating each customer as a valued individual). Businesses must focus on such issues as instilling a helpful staff attitude, delivering on advertising promises, developing a favorable return policy and providing accurate product information. Use your success with current customers to attract new referral business, but also remember that not every customer is worth keeping. You cannot be all things to all people. Sometimes, you have to let customers go and train energies on those clients who are the best fit.

    Measure Marketing Effectiveness: Effective measurement lays the groundwork for future plans, so keeping track of results is the only way to improve your marketing efforts. The key is determining which data should be collected. Your marketing results may be measured in sales (dollars or units), market share, store traffic, number of inquiries or reduced complaint rates, or other metrics. Tracking can also be based on surveys that assess customer perceptions.

    Track Employees: Having top employees who are motivated is critical to your company�s success. Track the effectiveness of your recruitment methods and retention levels as well as employee satisfaction and performance.

    Apply the Information: Analyze the intelligence you�ve collected, draw conclusions and make recommendations based on it. Develop a plan for seeking out opportunities to demonstrate your company�s strengths. If weaknesses are critical drawbacks to your company�s success, develop a plan for overcoming them.

    How We Help Market Your Mortgage Company Online Off

    Writing for the search engines and the end user can be a bit of a juggling act. It used to be that you could cram a bunch of keywords into your pages, get a handful of links, and boom, you ranked. That’s not the case anymore. Now more than ever good content is king and it is a necessity for not landing in Google’s doghouse. A bunch of thin blog posts or pages could result in a Google Panda penalty and wipe out your traffic overnight.

    So, why use us for your mortgage copywriting needs? First, we understand the industry. We’ve worked in it, we have multiple clients in the space who we write for, and we have a good idea of what could lead to a compliance nightmare down the road. We have three awesome copywriters, all who were English Majors, that work in our office. Not India. Not the Philippines.

    Mortgage Pay Per Click Management

    If you have an existing site, you’ve likely tried Adwords at some point in time only to realize what a waste of time and money it can be. When set-up properly, Adwords and Bing Ads can work tremendously. Our clients have spent thousands of dollars a day and generated leads at a fraction of what they would pay purchasing online leads (plus they are exclusive leads from someone who has visited your site and requested information directly from you). It’s all about setting up the campaigns the right way, measuring results, and making tweaks without having to spend 50 hours a month managing every last keyword. Both Google Adwords and Bing Ads have come a long way over the years and there are some great tools at your disposal for helping you find your target market and eliminate wasted clicks and money.

    Social Media Marketing for the Mortgage Space

    Let us start by saying that you can spend lots of time and energy trying to generate mortgage leads via social media and you will drive yourself bonkers (we know, we’ve already tried it). You’re a mortgage company and, no offense, you are not as interesting as Justin Bieber. We’re not saying “don’t do social media”. We just think our mortgage clients need to a have a plan and realistic expectations about what it is going to do for them. You can accumulate Facebook likes, push out content through Twitter, and pin photos of properties in Pinterest all day long and you’re not going to see many leads as a direct result. However, using social media can help you build authority in your space (think Google +), accumulate inbound links, and show the search engines that you are actively pushing out great content. Hopefully all of these elements will give you a little bit of a boost over your competition. We have experience marketing mortgage companies on: Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, StumbleUpon (which we don’t recommend for this space), Pinterest, and Linkedin.

    Local Mortgage SEO

    SEO stands for search engine optimization. It involves many different elements including writing great, unique copy, having strong meta tags and descriptions, optimizing site speed, inbound and internal link management, and much more. Whether you’re looking for assistance developing the architecture of your site or simply need a site audit done to help you identify areas for improvement, we can help. If you have a limited footprint and only focus on a single market we can also help you with Local SEO. You’ve likely noticed that the Google Places and Google Plus Local Listings have been dominating more of the search result pages in recent years. There are techniques and actions we can use to help you improve your chances of showing up in these areas.

    Email marketing is a great, often inexpensive way to stay in front of your existing client base. Whether it s crafting copy for drip campaigns or designing a template for monthly newsletters, we can help you plan and execute an email marketing strategy that makes sense for your business.

    Brochures, Postcards, Flyers White Papers

    Let ILM Marketing help you make a great impression on your clients and potential customers. Not only can we help you create great copy, we can also assist you with developing your print collateral and manage the entire printing process.

    Wanna Talk?

    We understand full well that there are tons of great marketing and seo companies out there. However, we don’t think that there are many who have the industry related background and know-how that we do. If you’d like to find out more about our mortgage website design, copywriting, SEO, PPC or social media marketing, or graphic design services, please give us a call at 910-547-6910 for a free consultation.
