What's Allowed?

Recommended Posts

Guest Kathy Ann

I am a newly diagnosed celiac person participating on this board. I manufacture an all natural line of bar soaps that just happen to also be completely gluten free.

There are occasionally questions asked on the board about where to get safe gluten free soaps. I have hesitated to chime in because I certainly don't want to break any rules.

Please tell me what I am allowed to say, if anything.

Hi Kathy Ann,

I copied rule #2 from the forum rules/guidelines--

Do not promote your own business, Web site or products--even if they offer free services.

We're very happy to have you here, though -- feel free to ask any questions you may have or join into the discussions! There is a ton of good information here, and lots of nice people who are very knowledgeable about Celiac and the gluten-free diet.

Welcome :)

Welcome, and really I don't have a clue but I would think that if you would like to advertise your product you should contact Scott, it is his board. :)

If someone asks what brands are glutenfree, I think you could state your brand, just don't say it is yours. You could also email someone about it, if they have that feature enabled.

Kathy Ann,

While I'm not the official last word here (that would be Scott, admin), I can't think of any reason why you can't have people email you about your soaps. After all, those emails and PM's are private anyway. :)

I don't know what Scott charges for the ads on the side (Bob's Red Mill always has one going), and if you could afford that. But that would be one way of doing it. Or having a special event (like a sale), you could then advertise it in the calendar on this board.
