Lead buyers and sellers expressed opposing opinions with non-lead buyers and sellers, regarding confidence with various compliance regulations, according to the 2019 LeadsCouncil Benchmarking Report: On The State Of The Lead Generation Industry, sponsored by Digital Media Solutions. The majority of lead buyers and sellers expressed that they were “extremely confident” they are in compliance with TCPA, CAN-SPAM and DNC regulations. Non-lead buyers and sellers were only “somewhat confident” that lead buyers and sellers are in compliance. The confidence levels for GDPR compliance were much lower for both groups.

The majority of lead buyers and sellers indicated TCPA impacts their lead generation efforts. Interestingly, more lead buyers and sellers claimed they are impacted by GDPR than DNC regulations.

CAN-SPAM appears to be a bigger issue to non-lead buyers/sellers than to the lead buyers/sellers group.
