Closed due discussion with the MOD
Why? This ain't spam...
Because you do have to register for it so it does collect your info, unlike you said.
Not entirely true. You don't have to go through an opt-in page and you won't get spammed by the system. Most people already have a account in this system.
And with that being said, it's still FREE.... You don't have to type in your credit card and have to verify anything. All they ask is to create a FREE account and then you can enroll for FREE.
So it's still a freebie / give away....
Your "Spam Reported" is like standing in front of a store which has a huge banner that says "FREE CANDY". And you're all like, This is not free... I have to walk into the store to get it...so basically it's not free...
Still requires you to provide your personal details to get thee information. Why dont you rip all the video and tutorials, then share them here in our download section. Some people dont like registering their info, especially from a newbie account with just 3 posts you comes in and randomly posts something like this.
And is that your affiliate link?
Let me be honest here, I wouldn't post here if I wouldn't profit from it in anyway, I share the link to my course to get free enrollments, the free enrollments help as social proof to get premium enrollments, the more premium enrollments, the more money I make. And no this is not a affiliate link. I'm maybe cheap, but not crazy....
Why would you be skeptical to register on a system that already has 1.5 million students...It doesn't make sense.
So in the end, those who enroll get free valuable information other people pay Monthly for!
Selling outside a BST is not permitted and that is essentially what you are doing. Driving traffic to your site for financial gain.
I've deleted the link, please don't do that again.
BTW, a lot of us post here without any thoughts of getting profit as this is a forum that has it's roots in sharing to see others live a better life.
Does that count for indirectly financial gain such as getting "thank yous" to build your reputation to then build a followingship to then make money from it?
Well for one, you should have originally posted it on here just like you explained above and then you would not have been taken as a spammer, just spamming their content. People here appreciate honesty and straight forwardness.
Second, just because 1.6 million people have registered for something, doesnt mean people just will automatically want to sign up for something. 1.6 million, i think that still leaves a market potential of 7 billion more sign ups to go......
And if thats your content, and you want to give it to us for free, then you should have made those videos as a course here. This would make it seem more legit than seemingly trying to "blackhat" us into clicking on your sellers affiliate link so you can make money on us by anyone that may purchase other courses on the site.
If you shared the content here as posts, I am sure it would be well received and your status here would probably grow and be respected.
P.S. dont stress it too much Lots of new people here make the same mistake...Just learn from it and do it better next time.
No, that is not direct marketing like you were doing + it is pretty hard to narrow down someone who is getting a lot of thanks to build their rep for a following to make money from them.
What I thought you would say though is, "Sorry, I did not realize that I could not sell outside of a BST." and let it go from there.
@ MOD , I'm posting a freebie, what the direct or indirect result is, does basicly not matter. And yes, I like discussions.
@Skyegbug, Your comment is again not entirely true.
1. I'm not spamming, I'm posting selectively
2. The market isn't that huge, since only a broad 70% of the people on this planet use the internet
3. Why would I host one video course on 2 different places, if I could also host it on one....
My sellers affiliate link....What the ^&#* , Do you even understand the difference between a short link and a affiliate link...
I don't make money from it if people buy other courses, in fact you can't even buy courses seperately...
(Blackhat someone into something on a blackhat forum. haha, ironic)
I respect your opinion, I just have to disagree.
You know what they say about opinions, right?
Opinions are like assholes, we all have one.
The rules are the rules.
Aand why share it in two places? Well because this place BHW would be your lead pool, and if you are serious about "Giving us something for free" and you want the rep...well do it the way we will respect you for posting it.
Thread closed - OP, listen to Skyebug, he is offering you some very good advice.
