Since channel 5 stopped showing reruns of Emanuelle 5 and Confessions of a Window Cleaner, I often lie awake wondering about those unanswerable questions:
Whats the meaning of life?
Why does pee often smell like sugar puffs?
Whats the true definition of Self Promotion?
Firstly Id like to say this is a genuine thread realated to no thread which just happened to be removed this morning, its just an insite into my tiny mind.
For example, if someone who works at John Lewis posts a deal for a store they work in, where each member of staff holds shares and receive a bonus based on that stores profit, so if they post deals they sell more items, gain more profit and therefore receive a better bonus is this classed as self promotion? After all they profit from a deal posted.
Now if someone, anyone, perhaps a young (and very good lookin) bloke posts something regarding an event being held at a sourced venue where a service is being offered at 1/3rd of the regular price where he makes not a single penny profit (surely hot deal of the century?) yes maybe self promotion if doing it on behalf of a company, but as a freelancer, and individual whos had premesis donated to this young (and very good lookin) bloke for the day as a good will gesture by a separate company, still self promotion, if so how does it differ from the previous example.
Just love to have your thoughts as neutrals, also apologies for the many typos if I was any good at English I wouldnt be a designer.
