Important Message For Muablogsales Members – Please Read.Posted: April 25, 2013
I’d really appreciate it if you would take a moment to read the following. Whether you are a buyer or seller, I feel that this may affect you.
I’ve read two complaints about muablogsales/admin on the Beauty Board.
The first is that not everyone’s sale is getting posted. This is not true at all; I do post everyone’s sale. The lone exception was an egregiously rude lady who I discovered had a history of alleged fraud, and I decided not to allow her on the blog. This is the person who started the rumor with an MUA-mail blast.
The second complaint is that it’s difficult and unpleasant to submit sales. That’s something we can talk about.
I’ve followed Caroline’s lead (great ideas) on keeping the updates fresh with new content because it keeps the posts from becoming spam (my own gmail account used to flag it as spam; I had to go in and change it). Today I saw this post on the Beauty Board:“i think it’s ok to have limitations. i bet carovan was overwhelmed by all the spammers. i can think of a few (some of whom are veterans/semi-regulars on this board) who continuously had their blog sale posted every day before caro decided to input said restrictions. once i started to recognize the spammers, i wholly ignored their sales it’s just so off-putting”
That quote so accurately and succinctly sums up what I’m trying to avoid. I want buyers to look forward to the daily muablogsales post because they know there will be something new and interesting.
It does mean more effort for the sellers to send specific items instead of just brands, and it’s a lot more effort for me to provide quality control of the postings. I’m more than willing to do that; my goal is simply to have quality sales postings.
This blog is a forum to help buyers and sellers, and if you feel this approach is not working, what would you like to change? It can become a copy-paste spam list (where I just post anything and everything you send), but do you really believe that is going to help your blog sales? Or does the additional effort bring you more buyers? I would love to hear your comments and suggestions.
Thanks so much for reading.
