Did you know there are certain words that cannot be used in the marketing materials of a franchise? Words like success, unique, proven – and many more — can take your beautiful marketing materials out of compliance. Did you know that disclaimer language should be present on every marketing piece, and that proper language can vary by state?

It is imperative that you share with us all marketing pieces, including your website, used toward prospective franchisees. This goes back to the “four corners rule” that you be careful not to over-disclose or under-disclose, as well as attach any prescribed disclosures required by some states when needed.
