Self-Promotion, Links and Product Feedback
DON’T start a thread purely to advertise a product or a service. This is only permitted our Promos Forum.
DON’T reply to a thread purely to advertise a product or a service. Your post may be removed if the self-promotional content is deemed to outweigh the original content.
DO make use of your user profile to list your contact details, business name and social media handles etc.
DON’T include contact details in the main body of your post. This stops the board being overrun with people touting for work.
DON’T post “stubs”. If a member asks for a recommendation and you can help, don’t just tell them to contact you. Explain how you have the business expertise to help publicly.
On including a link in your post:
DO include a link to an external source when it’s relevant to the thread topic. Remember that it’s ultimately down to the moderators to decide whether your link is relevant or not.
DON’T drop irrelevant links. This includes publishing a post that doesn’t contain sufficient information to be useful in isolation and relies on an external link for context.
DON’T post large chunks of PR-heavy text to accompany a link.
On Product Feedback:
DO start a thread to ask for testing of your product or service. You can get feedback on your websites using our Promos Forum.
DO use discretion and tact when asking for feedback. Try not to come off as scammy, jumbled or confused.
