I notice some people use this forum for business promotion, and aiding in getting to the top of the web search engine heap. Eg. usernames like "Ramboard, or Bob's tile and Marble, Wisconson LLC"
I've put my web address and "Ottawa General Contractor" in my sig, but that's about it.
Frankly, I don't mind if customers search the web and come across my posts. I generally don't engage in inflammatory crap, and try not to speak out of my butt.
And then some people I notice have a 'secret/anonymous' identity which doesnt promote their business as direct, and they use this forum to vent, problem solve, contribute, etc. But they are pretty unlikely to be 'discovered' on this forum by their potential customers.... eg: Framerpro, sparky, etc....
Just curious how much people think about this, and if you promote actively and many of your posts are designed to highlight your business, has it helped?
