Why should your organisation sign up for a Commercial Profile?
The UKClimbing online climbing community is by far the biggest in the UK, and one of the biggest in the world. By contributing useful, accurate information you can enhance and maintain your reputation as knowledgeable, credible and responsible organisations.
You will be allowed to publish small amounts of commercial information in response to specific questions (see restrictions below) and your profile will give you a continual presence on these incredibly popular forums with a very visible link back to your own web site.
What is allowed?
You can upload pictures of your business. This could be a photo of your climbing wall, your product, the accommodation you offer or a photo of your staff in action in the hills.
You can post in any of the forums so long as you do not try to overtly promote your products or services; remember that we allow products and services to be promoted via the Premier Posts. Limited responses to question posed by other users are allowed.
Within your 'User Profile' page you can describe your organisations services, location, opening times, product range and any other general information including links to your web site. Example - Alan James - UKClimbing.
What is NOT allowed?
You cannot use the profile to overtly sell any product, service or event. Commercial Profiles are not a substitute for Premier Posts. For example; blatant advertising in a starter post, or within a thread isn't allowed. eg. "We're selling these cheap this week", "I've got 3 places left on this course", "our climbing competition starts this Friday". For this type of message you will need to use a Premier Post.
If you have any question about using or setting up a Commercial Profile please email Advertising team.
