Promoting one's own business here.

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Promoting one's own business here.

Post by 4000islandsguy » Sun Jun 22, 2014 9:35 pm

What are the rules in regards to people mentioning their own businesses here? Do I have to be a sponsor? If somebody asks in a thread advice on where to stay on Don Det am I allowed to suggest my own business and provide a link? I have no intention of littering the forum with too much about my place but it has always somewhat bothered me when sites bar people from suggesting their own place if it seems to match the topic. For example I got warned on Thorntree for mentioning my place when it was what the OP was basically looking for and a good match. In the mean time somebody not even in Laos could incessantly tout for his buddies place because he didn't own it.

Is it okay to use my link in my sig or perhaps a pic in my avatar? Just trying to figure out what is considered acceptable.

We definitely don't want anyone spamming the board, but i think you get that.

We also want our members to be well informed of anything out there of interest, so we're glad to have you mention your business were appropriate.

Okay here is my place since you asked. The website needs some work and has to be updated but here it is...

http://www.longislandguesthouse-dondet.net" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

https://www.facebook.com/LongIslandGuesthouse" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;


I will also add links to your website when I get around to adding a useful links section.


Thanks

Say, can anyone recommend a good place to stay at Don Det? Does anyone here have a business there?
