OK, it's not a fundamental shift in how this forum operates, but more of a balancing of what we currently offer. Those who provide due diligence service are listed here. I'm now announcing a similar facility for members who sell other services such as SEO, web development, teaching flipping, copywriting, programming, marketing etc. There is still no charge to anyone and I'm not making anything out of it.
A lot of my efforts on this board are directed towards benefitting members and this is one way I feel I could add value to your businesses. Bear in mind that for every registered person who visits these boards on the average day we have 5-10 non-registered visitors ...and rising. Many of these readers develop an immediate trust in the recommendations made here and some of them are actively looking for the services you offer.
Who can list?
Anybody with a certain level of posts. Bear in mind that readers of the thread are still going to be judging you from what you've said in posts! Your listing will have your user name, say what you do and provide a link to your profile / posts. Readers will be encouraged to follow you and read your posts to decide if you know what you're talking about.
Listing is optional. If you'd like to be listed you need to let me know. At any time you can ask to be removed from the list.
How It Works
It'll work on the lines of the due diligence thread. Members who have a higher number of posts may get more prominent exposure.
I appreciate that two people with an identical post count may have a vastly different quality of contributions. I'm going to leave quality judgements to those who are looking for your services. So if you're selling a site-flipping book for example, your articulate defence of site-flipping in all the anti-flipping threads could work to your advantage.
Readers looking for a particular service would be pointed to this thread. They'd pick out someone who's listed as a provider of the service they want. They'll follow the links to read his/her posts and then PM that person. If you have a signature link they could follow that to find out more about you and what you offer. Note: All signatures must be compliant with Rule 6.
What services will be listed?
Any relevant service which in my opinion is well reflected in the posts you've made. If you're providing a brokerage service for sale of websites, for example, but have zero posts on the topic of brokers or site selling, I don't think it helps to point readers to your posts.
