Not Advertising your own site??

31
Found 16th Jul 2009
Its common knowledge that your not supposed to advertise your own site on hukd = my question is that everyone is aware reps from amazon post deals up about there websites all the time!! My cousin owns a shop and has a site for his shop online and when he came on here to put some sale items on the deals section they were thrown for that reason?? Hypocracy gone mad?? Or does amazon have shares in hukd??

Very naffed off

AMAZON Deals anarchy to the masses

Reps from Amazon posting Amazon deals? Or you mean marketplace deals?

Can you point to one that hasn't been removed???

There are no reps from Amazon on here

If anybody from Amazon wants to give me rep, feel free :whistling: :lol:

I'm not aware of any posts on here coming from Amazon themselves? How can you back this up Scott? Is there evidence?

All quiet on the western front!

im sure i have seen cdiscount replying in their deals.... not checked / seen in a few weeks though

i think its fair to allow them to comment but to have a name such as "amazon_rep_andy" like mse does

they can help fill in any questions etc and you will be able to keep an eye on them placing their own deals

apart from cdiscount. because they hire sexy ladies for paul.

Admin

We allow merchants to post constructive feedback if a member has a query or problem in a thread.
However, they can't post the deals themselves, nor can they use any form of marketing whatsoever, nor can they say things like "Awesome deal" or whatever within the deals threads.

I've seen posts with personal websites on here. Does that mean the site is checked for any form advertising by the moderators?

My point being if these guys can stick there own deals up from there own websites why cant others?? Its hypocracy!

Original Poster

This site has a Strict no advertising policy?? WTF - Most deals are posted by the site owners?? I know somebody who works for ryanair whos been sticking them up on here!! My point is its all right for main street brands but the little guy is thrown off Hence there being "NO Strict advertising policy"

I see what you mean, but it could also be argued that he was giving help. It's a very grey area but as you say, probably over the line.

Noobs :whistling:

millarcat is a hukd moderator the mods seem to put more deals from the same company as a company can send their "offer" in via the ]contact us link.

if you know of someone who works at ryanair and is promoting the company and making something from it then let the admin know

i work for a major supermarket and do post their deals but i don't make anything from the deals, but i only post deals that i deem to be amazing.

Most of them seem to come from the affiliate newsletters so imagine they are coming from there rather than reps using the contact us button

So who is it who's been posting the deals for ryanair? In the ]past year or so i can hardly see any deals for them that have been postred by the same person, so he's not doing a very good job if he's supposed to be promoting them.

What enitity is your 'cousin' trading as? If he's a sole trader then his deals can't be posted anyway.

Amazon is crap i wouldnt use them and im not a kid im 34 - if you could address the problem rather then getting at me this might be a better site! Untill then hypocracy and hukd go hand in hand - you should either address the problem or admit an affiliation with certain sites!! Otherwise stop mocking genuine points

Well answer the question then, rather than just saying Amazon are carp!
